I don't know whether it would be due to repackaging old stock - but I think it's more likely that new discs have been pressed for this edition. I imagine it's also out of a desire to have the sets carrying the StudioCanal name rather than the Kinowelt one.


You're right, Alan, these are new discs - checked. Wink In this case, I take back my words. Smile

I presume the old discs would carry the Kinowelt logo on the disc label, so I imagine this is an easy way of checking whether the discs are new or not. If they are, the won't have Kinowelt logos printed on them. Smile

Ha, this is the thing I did not think of. While I saw difference in logos on the boxes, I automatically thought that the disks are identical (I was must to check, but strangely enough I did not have this idea at all - I'm losing my grip Laughing ). Only after your words, Alan, I realized that I had ridiculously missed the obvious thing. Laughing

Why should Arte broadcast the Gale era? These episodes were never shown in Germany, they are technically poor, a lot of fans who watched some of them do not like these episodes.


Hmmm, I think a lot of fans do like the Cathy Gale episodes. A great deal.

Your average TV viewer may be put of by that type of 'live-to-tape' presentation and the current state of the prints, I agree.[/quote

The Gale pisodes are great fun to watch. They're like live theater , a unique experience. The filmed episodes are like movies, so there's a huge difference between the two.

I love the Cathy Gale era. In fact, the 3rd and 4th seasons are neck and neck for my favorite of the series. The 2nd season is a bit uneven in my opinion, but I still like it a lot, and many episodes are better than the 3rd season. I would love to see more of the 1st season as well.

Some people are just used to old 405-line videotape productions because they grew up watching it.

I agree Michael. I just love Seasons 2 and 3. It's television like we'll never see again.
