Well, received LIS, Season2, V1 today.
Box, very nice artwork.
CD covers, very nice artwork.
To start with, I agree the previous reviewer, that the colors are vibrant. The resulting picture is pretty clear.
The only problem, AGAIN, is that, like the 1st season, you can see the Interlace lines in the picture. That would suggest that the "digital" copy was made, possibly, via an older Telecine machine. There are systems that can copy film, frame-by-frame, which results in the clearest, interlace-free pictures possible. Clearly, this was not used here.
I make copies of old film at home with my NLE studio and do not get Interlace lines at all. Unfortunately, I won't spend the money for frame-by-frame..... [cheap! ;) ]
So, I am disappointed with the lines, especially when viewed on our HDTV, which has Progressive Scan. For those not familiar, Progressive Scan doesn't interlace the lines on the screen like you would normally see on a "regular" TV set. On an interlaced TV, the larger the screen, the more pronounced the lines.
That being said, it would have been nice for Fox to use better technology (frame-by-frame) to transfer film to digital, in order to not have the interlaced lines.
As clear as the picture is, when viewed on a larger screen, HDTV, the lines are very noticable.... it's like watching a TV without Progressive Scan.
Still, it's better than NOT having the collection at all! :)
