finale, was one of the worst TV series endings in the history of the small screen, sadly.
I would hope Fox would spend some time and effort to rescan the film elements at 4k and spiffy up the SFX and release them on BD and UHD when that format gets going.
No one is arguing the show isn't great (well, for the most part, anyway)...
It's just that, when was the last time you saw it airing in syndication?
That's the issue: selling it to someone after the work is done. The greatest show in history won't get the love it needs if no one wants to pay for the rights to show it.
Heck, I loved the show, but at the prices they'll want for it, there's no way I'll rebuy it when I already own it on DVD. Quality or not.
