That's what I'm scratching my head about - why they were so eager to get "complete" material out and resorting to dubs or worse,off air recordings of questionable quality when they've rounded up large quanities or 16mm and/or clean film chaned copies. Standards are important - A set of what is available of 16mm transfers is acceptable - a good wet-gate transfer is as close to pre-digitial NTSC broadcast quality standards as possible - so why muck up a box with lesser quality 'dubs' or worse, off-air tv recordings. If they can't source all from available prints,and going back to studio masters isn't cost effective - I would rather have some in uniform quality, than all mixed - Why should I paid for a box set of shows and have a number of them sub-part jusy to call it complete. WHY even put them there? That's the point. Would it had made a difference it the M-SQUAD box was missing a handful of episodes? I don't think so. Add to the fact they could do better post-production work on the "dubs" they use. TIMELESS is in business to make money - but putting out mixed quality content only hurts them - the average person doesn't care if a series is complete when it comes to this older stuff.,all they will remember is the product was mixed. As a consumer, we vote with our dollars, and accepting sub-part product just allows companies to continue to offer such that. It's not a matter of expectations of entitlements, it's a matter of quality goods for money spent.
