Well, it'd be nice once in a while for stations to have special uncut airings once in a while. The Scifi Channel did that with Star Trek (didn't they) and The Twilight Zone? But I'd want them to go further than uncut, I'd want no advertising screen clutter too over the shows!!!

We can all dream, but I suspect that we would just be told to buy the DVDs or BR disks.

Yes, SciFi (a long time ago) aired every Star Trek episode (remastered in SD instead of HD to save money) with no cuts and no time compression in a special 90 minute slot padded with trivia and interviews with the actors and writers. Most memorable was Harlan Ellison still whining about how they destroyed his precious original script which was "10,000 times better" than the episode that aired. He may have used a number with more zeros.

Star Trek has been sped up in syndication since the late 80's. This is nothing new.

NOW: my post on AVS Forum.
NEXT: someone else's post on AVS Forum.

I believe we have tapes of that SciFi channel Star Trek marathon lying around somewhere, although they don't have Hi-Fi audio, sadly.

Not to mention the AGONIZINGLY LOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOONG Commercial Breaks! mad.gif Yes, the interviews were interesting, but they only lasted a few minutes (Maybe ten at the most) the remaining 20 minutes was to stuff in more commercials.

I would much rather spend $100 a month and $1,200 a year on DVDs and Blu-Ray discs than on pay TV. I have a bookcase full of my favorite shows uncut and screen clutter and commercial free.
