No, they wanted to update the visual effects. The fact that they have included the original versions of the episodes on blu-ray proves they didn't have to update them.
Fine. Didn't need
to, but it sure helps a show that is painfully dated, visually (and in other ways too if you ask me, but that's beside the point).
