Re: Disappointing DVD releases

Don't know if this has been mentioned, but how about the Babylon 5 DVD releases? Those have got to be the worst quality releases ever!

I was just watching the Season 3 episode the other day (the one where Sheridan declares independence) and besides the SFX cropping, the stuff that was supposedly retransferred from the original film looked like it had been transferred to SVHS and then scanned in! I'm sitting there looking at Deleen's blue costume and I'm seeing artifacts of what looks like VHS or even SVHS playback, since parts of the blue have red streaks, and not from stuff sewn into the costume, but from crosstalk between colors---and this is in sequences that were apparently transferred from the original film for the "New" Digital transfers! Some Digital transfer!
