Wow, I didn't know that! Do you know which episodes, what was cut - and why?
I certainly understand the knee-jerk reaction to consider the color-timing "altered", but I can't help but feel like it's actually closer to the truth to call this the intended look for the show. I for one much prefer it to the often yellow skin tones and sometimes over-brightness of the DVD versions.
Honestly, I prefer the new colour timing - it has a far more naturalistic appearance to my eye. Also, the boosted contrast helps alleviate the somewhat drab and washed out visual sheen that permeates the look of the show.
