    Zoom has started sending the Series 1-8 Blu-Ray boxsets out, so they will probably start arriving in the post over the next couple of days.

    I thought it might be worth having a new thread to compare notes in advance of the official G&T review.

    I’m as excited as an extremely excited person who has a special reason to be excited. Sadly I live in the US and even though I have a blu ray player it isn’t multi region. I do have all the American DVDs though (having previously purchased British VHS & DVD) and I’m looking forward to the reviews and analysis!

    It would feel wrong if the members of G&T were to like it, let alone consider it an improvement. I look forward to reading all the negative comments and articles surrounding this release. ;)

    I await the moment it turns out they James Cameroned Series III with DNR so intense it turns the picture into a smudge painting.

    Colour grading/timing is the only thing I’m slightly worried about. Please don’t turn the beige/cream into white or pour a teal tint over everything like Blade Runner.

    I dunno, if you’ve seen how horrible DNR can be then it should be pretty high on your list for concerns with the early series, primarily III. DNR is the autotuning of video clean-up; it’s way overdone and you’d almost always be better without it.

    Honestly same, I’m looking forward to the G&T article on the Blu-Ray more than I’m looking forward to the actual Blu-Ray

    I don’t have a blu-ray player so in haven’t ordered it yet. But I hope to see some footage uploaded online to see how it looks

    Ooh! Ooh! Mine’s just arrived!

    Sadly, I’m on the bus to work, so can’t actually have a nosey until this evening.

    Mine should be waiting at home too.

    I’ve already seen some photos of the final set and it looks like they match the promo artwork exactly – dodgy half-ramscoop included.

    Didn’t we figure out the half-ramscoop was just a perspective thing and it just doesn’t work in that art style?

    Mines coming from Amazon so probably won’t arrive until Monday :(

    No, I think it’s that the picture has been poorly copied from a shot of the pencil-Dwarf that was at a perspective that made the top parts of the scoop hard to see, and the bottom parts look like they were coming from underneath the entire ship.
