The new DVD of Meet the Fraggles from Vivendi isn't about image quality. The image is what it is, as the shows were created for broadcast two decades ago -- long before Sony was thinking about 4k monitors.
What it is, for those who didn't have the pleasure of seeing it when it in original release, is quite extraordinary programming for young children. I'm actually sending this disc on to my son, as he cut his television teeth on it, especially via laserdiscs.
That said, color is okay. Shadow detail is extremely limited. The image isn't terribly sharp, especially if projected, which I don't suggest.
But as far as programming, I don't believe there's been much better produced since 1983.
