Here's a comparison for the new restoration of The Last of the Cybernauts...??:

They look even better then I had hoped, so excited about this release. Smile

Great surprise ... I'd forgotten I'd ordered it! I've just had the full "vintage experience".

I think the best way to approach "The New Avengers" is to NOT compare it to the original, and to treat it as a good late 70s action series. There's something special about all 1960s series that simply can't be duplicated in another decade.

I've always thought that way about TNA too.
The restoration on the new blu ray is outstanding and does whet the appetite! Feel it may be a bit of a double-edged sword though if the whole series is released in HD, as Purdey's questionable fashion sense will be even clearer to see!!!

Fashions in the 1960s were top notch. It was THE decade for style. The 70s brought a mishmash of styles, t-shirts with images on them, bell bottoms, wide lapels, etc. So we must forgive Purdey if she occasionally doesn't quite come up to Avengers standards fashion-wise. But we have her incredible fight scenes to enjoy. I love Joanna Lumley SO much!

A look at the contents of this Blu Ray edition and the back side of the box.

I'm not gonna buy it but that's really lovely clean looking packaging. Previous ones are just too fussy for my liking.

I've just entered the world of Blu-Ray and have just ordered this release.

Looking forward to seeing all episodes in sparkling quality!

They are indeed in sparkling quality. The New Avengers looks like it was filmed yesterday. I am looking forward to the release of the series on blu ray.

Well, my copy arrived really quickly - another pleasant surprise from Network.

Anyway, as you say sparkling quality. I didn't think the monochrome episode would scrub up any more, but it looks gorgeous. I've only watched The Cybernauts so far, so comments only relate to than episodes.

I've seen on other forums complaints about the sound. Indeed, it does sound a little as if the midrange has been suppressed slightly in the theme tune, but it isn't as bad as others seem to be making out. I thought the dialogue and incidental music sounded crisp and clear. So lovely to hear Laurie Johnson's earlier scores (which I preferr to the colour episodes) sounding so good.

Watching the authentic experience, how lovely to have the bumper breaks put in. I've really missed these on all other releases. It has often mystified me why they have been there for the video-tape era releases, but not the filmed ones. I haven't seen that animation since channel 4 showed them in the mid 80s. If Network get the rights to release them all, I would love to see them reinserted into all episodes - but I know I might be in a minority here. The ads are fun, and it makes a change not fast forwarding through them as you might usually do, just to get a taste of the history.

So far, I'm impressed......

I hope to hook up the Blu-Ray to my projector to see how good the quality is on the big screen (trying to contain my excitement.... Very Happy )
