    Great announcement. Wondering if Quatermass II was ever coming to Blu-ray.

    Nope: there are no "wrong" versions of Nigel Kneale's original screenplay, just two brilliant TV and film adaptations! ;)

    A gorgeous (well, at least the 35mm scenes are) blu ray of the 1958 TV series was recently released in the UK.

    Yes but the original TV version is the superior one and I'm not rich enough to go region free.

    I already have the UK version of QUATERMASS AND THE PIT and it's beautiful. Will double dip on Q ll, since I only have it in SD.

    If you're saying you don't want to open the Pandora's Box of availing yourself to the wealth of non-Region-1/A discs you'd be tempted to buy, that's a legit concern I guess.

    But if you're saying you can't afford a region-free blu ray player, you've gotta be kidding. Think at most maybe $50-$100 more than what you'd pay for a basic player in order to get a pre-set region-free player or to buy/download a codebreaker guide.

    It absolutely baffles me that people still actually fret about regions on this board... as though that's the least bit of an issue these days.

    Well said, Tom. For anyone still unaware, the era of physical media has peaked and we are witnessing its decline – albeit one that I hope will be drawn-out indefinitely. We should be grateful for every decent physical release of niche product. Yet again, as far as I'm concerned, once there's a BD in existence anywhere, that's the one I eventually aim to get, and any further releases are a bonus. I've never felt entitled to expect everything I desire to be released in my own back yard, and even less so nowadays.

    As soon as it became feasible, I've been serious about collecting films and TV I love, and had multi-region set-ups since the days of VHS onwards. Wherever you live, it's never been expensive to be similarly equipped, and cheaper now than ever. If you can afford to build a physical media collection, you can afford to go region free. Even now, I never fail to be amazed that this is is an issue for anyone, especially on a home cinema forum, of all places. Still, it comes up so frequently that one could be forgiven for thinking some folk resist going region-free purely to have something to moan about. :rolleyes:

    We all know that Americans have never been able to spell Quatermass...but to mis-spell it twice in the post title is unforgivable.

    Figures. Story of my life. ;)

    BTW Robert, the banner on the HTF landing page is still misspelled:

    upload_2019-2-6_12-11-43.
