    Questions you may have: 1. Didn't you already do a video on the remaster? I provided the voice over for one 4 years ago, yes. Jump to 3:05 for an explanation why we're covering it again. In brief, the remaster wasn't finished when we did that last video and we felt it warranted a final word. Also...the remaster still EXISTS so...the battle goes on. 2. This SEVERELY chaps my nethers. What can I do to help? First of all, follow the team on Buffy's HD Facebook: facebook.com/BuffyHD/ Second, and if you follow my channel you know I NEVER ask you to do this, so I mean it: Share the video as much as possible on social media. Tag and ask @primevideouk and @FacebookWatch to replace the HD version with the original. Tag @20centuryfoxTV and @DisneyABCTV to express your frustration. Sign the petition (that's not ours btw): www.ipetitions.com/petition/make-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-on-blu-ray 3. When are the episode guides coming back? And don't say soon. You know I hate it when you say soon. Soon. I took a week or so off and then promptly got food poisoning followed by the flu. It's been a good month. But I'm back and working every day again. There are a few videos in front of Buffy vs Dracula. Then we're rolling. TRUST me. I'm wanting to start Season 5.

      Passion of the Nerd I don’t think we will ever ditch physical copies. The collected in us humans won’t allow it, and I don’t see people shifting out hard drives just to watch the favorite show or movie. I also think that Disney will ruin. Buffy by making it an extreme huge feminist rant.

      +Thread Bomb Er...because unless you're directly involved with the production and can prove to us otherwise, that is not actually the case? As both the original team confirmed through correspondence along with many shots in the remaster, seasons 1 & 2 were shot on Super 16mm, which IS a 16:9 aspect ratio (or very close to it 1.66 (are you thinking of 16mm which is 1.33?)) You can frame for 4:3 but the sides will be there. As for season 3, it's 35mm and 16:9, just like seasons 4-7. The only difference is that it was never released on DVD that way. The Euro DVD release (which is the first version to have a widescreen release) had 1-3 in 4:3 and 4-7 in 16:9. For a time we thought the first 7 eps of s1 were shot on regular 16mm (4:3) but then they opened up the sides fixing that shot of Darla in the SECOND (post-Pivot) version of the remaster. So it made no sense - the computer auto framing must have been very badly set up for those early episodes. But even if you were right and the information we got from the original team is wrong, the cropping section of this video still would stand as an argument against converting a 4:3 original to 16:9, regardless.

    I was unaware of any remaster. I still rewatch the first DVD releases. I use premire and after effects, it certainly does look like they asked someone to run effects and filters over the entire episodes without actually taking each shot or even a scene and evaluatiing what was needed to be done. I think I'll stick to my old DVDs from the original release.

    Im 52 and i grew up with 4.3 and grainy pictures so when i buy an old series boxset i expect 4.3 and grain. Granted the monitors i watch them on have better quality today so the picture is better, they dont remaster/hd'ify old tv series but i am watching them exactly as they were when they were aired and its how we fell in love with them. Do a good transfer and dont fuck around with perfection.

    I rarely ever comment, but please stop referring to post-production effects as "Special Effects" ... that's a term reserved for effects done live on set during production. Effects created and added in post-production are called "Visual Effects" .... this is why there are two entirely separate awards for them at things like the Oscar's.

    I remember my feelings surrounding your favorite episode at the time it aired. I was all geared up for an emotional moment involving the death of a significant character as had been promoted in media and such....then the one character that you know will be back, is the one that died. It kind of soured the significance of the sacrifice for me at the time of airing. I mean I get it now but the me back then was annoyed, lol.

    From my perspective I agree it needs to be redone, but the work that has currently been done is a lot better than some of the grainy pre-vamp shots :-) Again....I agree it needs a serious overhaul, but considering a major studio did not redo the remastering work it's better than most basement jobs.

      I get it. Generally, you're going to run into the problem of breaking the original creator's vision then. This remaster was done by a computer algorithm - not a person thoughtful reinterpreting or attempting to "improve upon" the original creator's vision. There are one or two shots that are drastic alterations to the original show that I actually like as well. However, in GENERAL, there are FAR more broken, cropped, ugly problems with the remaster than there are "improvements." But I get it.

    I’m excited for a reboot but why do they have to recreate such iconic characters?? This show has so many spin off possibilities. I would prefer an original cast in the buffyverse, like the newish book slayer!

    What a shame. Buffy deserves better. I’ll stick to the original on Hulu

    This is maddening. This would look amazing with a proper HD restoration. The DVDs, while preserving the original vision of the creators, leave a lot to be desired as far as picture quality goes. We can hope that sometime on the future a proper HD conversion will be done with correct colors, no DNR, re-rendered CGI, and, except for “Once More With Feeling,” in the 4:3 ratio. I know people will demand widescreen, but Joss Whedon says it’s 4:3, and that is the final word on the subject.

    05:04 Color correction is not at all the same as color grading - color correction is the preparation you do before you start the actual grading. ;) In color correction you "standardise" your footage - you prepare it for the grading process by making sure the contrast, white balance and exposure meet a certain standard. In grading you decide what look and mood you want for the scene. This is where art happens. Shockingly enough, in some of these scenes they appear to have done neither. In most of them it seems to me like they went for a bright, somewhat nostalgic, subtle grade (that barely meets the definition of the word "grade") that is certainly an improvement over the footage as it comes from the reel, but they obviously didn't invest enough love or time to compare it to the original edit to adapt and enhance the look (which for instance was done well in the heavily criticised Star Wars Remasters). Your suspicion that they applied one look to the whole footage seems about right. Painful to watch, considering how much joy it brings to create the mood in a scene, and look at that beautiful color separation and skin tone treatment they did way back then!! It reaaaally looks like someone wanted to make the quickest buck possible. Disgusting lack of artistic honour and craftsmanship. Someone pay me and hand me that HD footage and I'll gladly match it to the original beautiful grades!
