After season 7 is done, I would hope that CBS Digital would go back and redo season 2 properly. But it looks like we won't ever get redone, due to costs. Okuda said he was very happy with how season 2 turned out.
Like you said, too expensive to even consider. Even harder to roll out and sell.

I'm now of the opinion that the work done by HTV is simply "good enough". The effects work are an eyesore, sure, but I can live with it. I will still rewatch these episodes as I would the other seasons because I enjoy most of these episodes. The only thing that really ticks me off is when they crank up the DNR when there's a bluescreen element, because the quality changes dramatically from shot to shot:

DNR, no grain, very little detail

Same scene, grain, detailed, textured:

I agree; it's very jarring, especially when the picture quality varies so much in the same scene.

We're going to have to convince ourselves that it's "good enough," because we'll never get a correction.
