See... that's the problem. I honestly don't want my catalog titles to look "SO MUCH BETTER" than they did the year they premiered. That's where we get into trouble. I want them to look like the BEST show print possible in that original year. Just my opinion.
I agree. We all assume that people who work in film would be dedicated to the fidelity of the original source material, but that's not always the case. Sometimes they feel restricted by the limitations of the time and try to fix "mistakes" that are actually inherent to the source medium.
I have high hopes for BTTF, if only because we got burned before on the DVD, complained, and got replacements, and they probably don't want a repeat of that.
