Oh, oh--I misunderstood. I thought you were saying that the older seasons didn't look good on dvd and needed remastering. I guess you're saying that the episodes had undergone some recent remastering before dvd release. Didn't realize that. Well they sure did a good job! And I would add that I think they look better now than they did when aired on ABC in the 80s, too! Actually, the series has always looked pretty good in syndication. I remember seeing the middle seasons, say 6-7 on Soapnet in the late 90s...the show somehow looked better than it had on its original ABC broadcast. Don't ask me why--it just did. And the show was already 10-20 years old even then. I always figured that Spelling had kept especially good care of the prints or masters. But I don't really have any direct knowledge of why Dynasty looks so good compared to some of its contemporaries. Now if we could only get Warners to pay attention, cause that Falcon Crest dvd didn't look so hot. I wish all pre-90s shows could look as good as Dynasty does (it's the only one from your list that I've seen so far).
