I'm up to season 3 of the CBS Action repeats here in the UK and the show looks so damned fuzzy, like an old VHS tape. I read somewhere it was due to the conversion from NTSC to PAL.

Any truth to that? Are we in the UK due an extra treat?
Nope. PAL is usually 576i and NTSC 480i in 4:3 resolution. Because it's being taken from 35mm film, and converted to 1080p we'll both be seeing the same thing.
