If You Could Save 3 Things from the 80s...

Beyond Star Fleet, which I agree, should be a given; Macross (or Robotech if we're only talking western), Star Trek TNG, and Blade Runner.

Caliban voiced by Al Mathews

Great thread - I've always wondered who did which voices (beyond their own) - mystery solved. At long, long last!

Remastering--Grain Removal

iPhone and iPad. I don't mind Some Apple products, it's largely Macs that I don't have much time for. The iPad's one of the best gadgets I've ever had, and I fancied a change from an Android phone for a while.And to bring it back on topic, that second imagine looks very nice on either!

Agree - couldn't justify buying a Mac. Twice the price for half the functionality/performance.

Remastering--Grain Removal

As I said, I'm not a grain snob or anti-DNR, somewhere in between is just fine by me. It's when grain is excessive that it puts me off.The second image there looks really really nice, even on a retina display there's little evidence of detail being lost. When I say 'little' I actually mean 'none'.

Oh I agree, with Star Fleet I wouldn't see that being an issue. It doesn't really bother me too much with live film, it certainly wouldn't with Star Fleet. The second image there, the de-grained one, looks much better to me.

Remastering--Grain Removal

The issue of grain removal is a touchy subject and a lot of folks seem to be very sensitive about it. Personally, I don't like too much grain, but have nothing against it if used properly like in Band of Brothers. The anti-DNR folks usually bring up movies like Zulu, which together with the boost in...

Remastering--Grain Removal

Such a shame - What I wouldn't give for a pristine transfer. The sets and model work alone would look glorious in high definition, but then even at 576i, off a decent transfer would look very good. Certainly not knocking FF as they at least tried to remaster what they could get a hold of, but it's s...

Wonder what Fabulous had to work with when they were trying to remaster the series for the DVDs. At best I imagine that they were using later generation copies of the original film.

Favourite Character

I remember when I saw the series for the first time on its original UK airing I really dug The Skull and the whole mystery around it. Consequently Halley was probably my favourite character. Shiro was great too though, as were many others. In fact none were bad!
