I reached out to Shout Factory and asked for a partial refund for just the globe, and if that's not possible, for the whole thing. I don't expect that to be doable, so I will be happy to send it back and pay a lot less for the set on Amazon.
Well, I’m watching them in order so it was going to be a while before I got to the second year. However, for you, I put in Journey to Where for an a/b comparison.Hello I would like to ask the fellow members of Home Theater Forum please if you can help me about Space 1999 Shout Factory Bluray.I would like to know for those who has viewed series 2 episodes on Shout Factory Bluray set about the picture quality and original mono sound track.How is the picture quality of the series 2 episodes on Shout set?Is it as good as Network series 2 bluray set release in 2015?My second question is about the original mono track sound I would like to know if the mono track is fine and if it is the same as Network mono track on the series 2 set released in 2015?Your comments,opinions are most welcome.Thank you so much!
Hello Scott,Many thanks for the informations about Shout Factory set your help is very much appreciated.I will follow your advices.Well, I’m watching them in order so it was going to be a while before I got to the second year. However, for you, I put in Journey to Where for an a/b comparison.
The Mono soundtrack seems to be identical. The SHOUT set defaults to mono where Network defaults to 5.1.
The picture quality on both is excellent, however there are very subtle color differences. Network seems to be a little brighter and with a very light tint. The SHOUT seems more natural to me. Until I did the comparison, I didn’t notice a difference. Also, I am not the slightest bit dissatisfied with the picture quality. I think it’s excellent. If you’re considering making the purchase see you can have it in this region format, I would say go for it. I do not regret my purchase.
I do too. I just compared the two and to be honest it is a waste of time as they look identical to me. Fantastic picture, and sound.I have the Network Season 2 set and the new Shout Complete. I haven't watched the Shout yet, but when I do I'll post some screen grabs from both for comparison if someone hasn't beaten me to it.
According to the special features (on the Special Features disc) on the Shout! Complete ... it came as a surprise to the actors as well.I am running through Shout! Factory’s blu-rays in order. I haven’t seen the entire series in strict order probably since they originally aired. I’ve grown up with the series and always enjoyed both years. The stylistic changes never bothered me… Until now.
I was really quite used to the understated, dramatic and more mature atmosphere of the first year. After the final episode, I jumped right into The Metamorph and it really hit home just how different and strange it was. Three original cast members were gone without explanation, the sets were much more cramped and new people were suddenly in prominent roles. While the dropped cast didn’t really bug me, it really struck me that this new guy was suddenly second in command and very important…but we didn’t even learn his name until well into the episode!
While I get that ITC or Fred Freiberger just wanted to get on with it, Dr. Russell’s “Moonbase Alpha Status Report” (which were usually pointless Star Trek ripoffs) could have easily mentioned all of these changes, “Moonbase Alpha Status Report. We have finally completed our move to the relative safety of the underground Command Center. After our recent tragic losses, we are happy to see Security Chief Tony Vedeshi has settled into his new position as second in command. However, one of our recycling plants has failed due to…..”
It actually took a few episodes to adjust to the new format and this is from someone who has been used to them for over 40 years!
Just kinda weird to feel this way.
