I just picked up this 2 disc set and wanted to pass along my impressions. First off, it was awesome to see a He-Man DVD on the shelves! It's been a long time coming. For a while I was collecting the UK released single disc sets, but at $20 a pop (roughly) it was becoming too expensive. So I was overjoyed to find out the US was getting the episodes soon. For more info on what's exactly included on the set, visit He-Man.org for the complete breakdown as well as some fan-posed questions answered by the DVD's creators. On with the good He-Man on DVD!!! Very interesting behind the scenes interviews, though some of those interviewed seemed a little less than enthusiastic. Packaging, packaging, packaging! Truly a set for fans and by fans. A double disc digipak with great artwork from the show. Two inserted art cards and a folded insert are also included. It truly conveys the spirit of the original show. The video and sound are crystal clear. Now onto the biggest gripe myself, or any other fan will have: Apparently the masters BCI/Entertainment Rights have are ones Hallmark did for a European release. As such, even though the video and sound are pristine on the re-mastered prints, they were sped up to PAL standards. For the US release, these PAL masters were then encoded to match NTSC standards. However, the artificially sped up video and sound remain. This effectively shortens the episodes by about a minute and a half. For most casual viewers this may not be an issue, but longtime fans might be put off by the video/audio seeming too fast. This oversight is especially noticeable in camera pans. They just seem...off. I compared episodes from disc one with the same episodes from the UK releases and they were identical in video, sound, and length. If the powers that be only have access to the PAL masters and not the original NTSC tapes, the speed/sound discrepancies should be fixed. To my understanding, this huge mistake could easily be rectified with any professional video editing software. Simply load the re-mastered video in and slow it down by roughly 4%, encode, and voila! He-Man almost the same as when originally aired, and certainly not on helium. With that said, I hope the DVD producers receive feedback about this issue and correct it by the time the season sets start to hit on October 18. Typically I'm not a huge fan of 'best of' sets, but BCI did right by warning fans ahead of time that season sets are on the way. Plus if the speed issue is brought to their attention, then the season sets could be presented in the best way possible, and that would not have been possible without releaseing this set first to bring potential problems to the front. All in all, I am happy to see He-Man on DVD and for its release to be handled by those who seem to care about the show and its history. Hopefully this major problem will be addressed and fixed in the season releases, then I will be a really happy customer! mike.
