Not to me. It's overall fairly good but just a bit off. You see evidence of colorization in almost every shot. Watch mouths. No color inside. While it's usually difficult to see color inside a mouth it's very obvious, to me, if the color is missing as it is with those prints. Also watch fades to black, cross fades, and/or shots with swish pans. You lose color in all of those. You'll see the image go BW towards the end of a fade to black and to partial grey scale in the middle of cross fades. Swish pans can lose all color when done fast enough.I don't consider the colors fake looking at all, in fact they in my view look very realistic as if they were filmed in color which creates a seamlessness as you go into the actual color filmed season 3.
Me TV is showing the early black & white episodes of Gilligan's Island in color. I wished they would not do that.
Those poor castaways. They suffered on that Island and now on tv reruns.Not only that, but the image is now zoomed to fill the 16x9 frame. Those old colorized episodes didn't look fantastic in standard def 4x3, but they really look grungy zoomed in on that already blurry, low bandwidth station.
Sacrilege, it is, that colorization!
The Gilligan's Island season or colorization in general?
I really don't mind it as long as both versions are available. I've only seen a couple of the Gilligan's Island
colorized episodes. They could probably use an update.
Come to think of it, CBS didn't do an I Love Lucy Special this spring with new colorized episodes.
Anyone know why?
This is a fantastic job on The Addams Family. I never would have thought it was colorized.
