    Well it failed then. Nothing dates quicker than bad cgi.

    Maybe they should remaster Blackadder, or The Young Ones, or Steptoe & Son to make them better looking comedy programmes for an international audience? :x

    That's not avoiding my question now is it? Funnier or Better looking?
    oh and Nothing dates quicker than bad video effects. Season 1's littered with them.

    They already have remastered Blackadder.

    I don't know why they did it, well just for financial reasons, its not funnier & its not better looking. I see no point in remastering a sitcom. & you are wrong, the cgi has dated quicker than the original fx. But I don't care that a BBC2 sitcom from the 80s looks like a BBC2 sitcom from the 80s. I still watch old episodes of Hancocks Half Hour without wishing they were remastered.

    I don't mind a sitcom from the 1980's looking like a sitcom from the 1980's. That's the forgiveness.

    What I can't stand is this lovely idea that the remastered is somehow down in quality compared the originals. The original were a dog of an 80's sitcom & the remasters were a dog of the a nineties sitcom for largely different reasons.

    Sorry Doug, if you're reading btw - good luck with RDX.

    The worst effect I think in the remastered episodes is the added heads during the funeral scene in The End. They just look incredibly fake and it completely ruins the scene. I can't believe people looked at it and though "Yup, that looks better than it did before". :roll:
