^I'm genuinely surprised. Honestly I thought everything was unionised in that town. Still, there's no way in hell WB is ever going to hire a bunch of fans to do the VFX work. They're going to hire a reputable effects company. Someone they can have some assurance will actually deliver and have a viable legal recourse if the find themselves in breach of contract. I actually agree with both of you. WB should by now have learned that there is a market for B5, but I would understand their hesitance (though we are still talking theoretically here) in investing what'll probably end up being tens of millions of dollars upfront. Presumably the home video people are answerable to corporate higher ups who need to see a neat little line graph before they OK that kind of expenditure. That said, if they ever want the show to be on Netflix in HD, then they'd still need to go through the same remastering process. Of course it's possible that the part of WB responsible for licencing online streaming may be separate from the home video people, which given WB's bonkers internal politics may actually end up hurting the project unless they come to some kind of mutually beneficial agreement. Seriously now, who thought this was a good way to run an entertainment business? He must have been absolutely mental.
