If they can do a good job (like the Hogan's Heroes episodes on HDNET, which are superb), I will applaud the effort. I must say I'm reluctant to endorse their "improving" the special effects, though... Why not just expand the ratio (assuming these can be pulled out from the original 35 MM) and issue as "HD" - which is what appears to have been done with HH?
I guess it's time to look into getting the DVD set; I own a couple of the VHS tapes from the eighties but never bothered to purchase others. I agree that the kitschy look and feel of the originals is a large part of their residual charm. Like Turner "colorizing" classic cinema, something doesn't wash with me about modernizing the SFX.
