I would like to believe that we will see The Avengers in 4k and more, there are still a lot of blurry faces and details even on Blu Ray. For example, it may take at least 8k to see the clear faces of the inhabitants of the underground dwelling in The Living Dead.

Surprisingly, I checked the episode The Forget-Me-Knot by the USA and French Blu Rays - it's identical. I thought the number of episodes on one disc of the American Blu Ray edition would somehow affect the quality, but no. The only thing is that there are no bonuses on American Blu Ray edition.

the problem with the 'american' blu ray releases of season 4, 5, and the tara era, as sold on AMAZON, they are region 2. and won't play on the majority of blu ray players in the United States. Unless, you're lucky enough to have a all region player...and if that's the case, you would be better off buying a UK/German release of the series..

Exactly, mousemeat.
Alas, I do not have a multi-regional player, but I use DVDFab Passkey that allows you to watch content from any region at computer or gadget.
I guess these French Blu Rays are completely or almost completely identical to the British and German ones in terms of bonuses, since the quality of the pictures is identical on all Blu Rays of the series with the exception of the Cybernauts trilogy, where new restoration work has been done. Wink

I use AnyDVD to unlock mine, very useful but of course only on the computer. Fortunately all Australian bluray players are region free. We're not so constrained by big business here and the government some years ago passed legislation to allow multi-region as so few films and tv shows were distributed locally.

how lucky you are....I'll have to purchase a region free blu-ray player to enjoy the ' bootleg' american blu ray copies, or purchase a UK/FRENCH/GERMAN disc set....the blu rays gotta look better than those original A & E dvd's, which were simply a VHS transfer

That has been a godsend for UK lovers of archive telly, because the Australian sets were often far better in terms of picture quality, extras, commentaries, interviews etc and not too hard to import. Especially for ITC, ITV and ATV series DVDs, although for a time even video cassettes were wanted from Australia as they had the same PAL 625-line standard and didn't keep being deleted like BBC ones!

Probably. They're mostly from Umbrella Entertainment I think.
