    All are cropped to 1.78:1. All are Warner tv shows.

    Aside from the cropping, they all look very good.

    I don't understand, are they cropped, or do they look very good?

    Seriously though, I wish they wouldn't MAR shows like that. I didn't like pan & scan, and I don't like prune & zoom.

    'Prune and zoom'...I love that! Never thought of it that way, but whole-heartedly agree. Keep the original OAR or offer consumers the choice which they would prefer. Sure wish these would come out on Blu-ray - particularly Dukes of Hazzard and CHiPS. More vintage TV sets need to come out in 1080p. Now, if we could only get Warner to remaster The Thornbirds, Dallas, Falcon Crest, Perfect Strangers, North and South for Blu-ray. Hmmmm.

    Both. Great transfers with plenty of detail. Cropped to 1.78:1.

    I have a feeling Warner has 1.33:1 versions available. CBS made 1.78:1 masters of Hogan's Heroes for broadcast, but released the 1.33:1 AR masters on the recent Blu-Ray set. I believe "prune & zoom" is strictly for broadcast.

    At least 2 episodes are out of Order of Dukes .. Carnival of thrills is actually at the Beginning of Season 3. I just watched it and Amazon has it at the end of Season 2 and the episodes are in reverse Order

    Another classic show added to Amazon Prime now in HD is Gidget (1965). This one in the correct aspect ratio 1.33:1. Like the others only prime members can access the HD versions. If you want to buy the show you're stuck with SD.
