If wishes were horses, beggars would ride. Look, we all have our favorites among shows that either failed originally or have been forgotten over time. Yeah, it would be nice if we could all have access to all of the shows we wanted and there was a gigantic internet site where every show was archived and available for viewing. Just not possible nor economically feasible. UCLA and Library of Congress have the 2 best archives in the country but neither are accessible to the general public so their collections are no different than shows locked in studio vaults. Not sure how Wisconsin Film Archive works but they have every episode of every show Ziv produced in their collection. As for the Fox shows, they aren't remastering Peyton Place so even if they did do something with it, which is extremely unlikely, it won't look any better than your recordings from Romance or FoxNet.


And another reason to hate Fox (as if there wasn't so many of them):


They junked the nitrates of all their vintage movies, and kept only the acetate copies.

Yet for some, it hasn't clicked that Fox's interest in remastering and releasing classic shows is Finn-ished.

I believe this is just a duplicate of what MGM's holding are - but does wonder what the shape of the color material in Wisconsin is in comparison with MGM's holdings.
