This R1 release is issued in Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1) with English Dolby 2.0 Surround. Surprisingly it's a good strong surround mix. Dialogue, despite some negetive reviews of the broadcase version, is strong and easily understandable.
The R2 release however appears to be in Dolby 5.1, which is ashame because the R1 could have benefitted from a 5.1 mix. But anyway...
Picture quality? Pretty good for a TV show. The only issue is with out-of-focus background lights. They have that digital compression "dot crawl". But other than that, all live action and special f/x look extremely sharp and clear.
Just recently bought this series in geer up for the new release of the Robocop Trilogy. Now, I'd like to see the mid-'90s Robocop series released on DVD. The only thing lacking in this series is the lack of use of Robo's automated targeting grid system. I always found that aspect very cool about the theatrical movies.
The lowdown on the adventure is that it's ten years since robocop was made. He has been serving the public trust, protecting the innocent, and in some ways upholding the law. There are all new crime bosses in Delta City. And OCP as as in charge and as corrupted as ever.
Robo has a new cheif John Cableat the station who was Robo's partner when he was alive as Alex Murphy. Throguhout the first episode Robo is having memory flash backs of John, and eventualy John discovers who it is underneath the titanium armour known as Robocop. Eventualy John Cable is shot dead in the line of duty but reserected as the new and improved version as Robocop, but corrupted by an OCP executive, his first mission, while being unknown to anybody yet, is to frame Robocop by attacking the head of OCP and various other things. Robocop is then disgraced as a fugitive and hunted down to be taken off the streets.Read more ›
I had the chance to view this miniseries when it played on America's SCI-FI Channel, and I was incredible overwhelmed with the poor production quality only so far as the sound mixing goes. Throughout much of the four installments, the varying levels made the dialogue very difficult to hear, throughout any of the action sequences primarily. There were a few moments -- especially in the last two hours -- where sections of dialogue were barely audible! It could've been the broadcast signal, but, given the consistency of the sound levels throughout the entire miniseries, I'm tending to believe that wasn't the case.
Of course, I don't know if that's been corrected for the DVD releases, but, were I you, I'd stronly recommend a rental of this item b/f a purchase.

Wow. A walk down memory lane turned into an assault on plot, dialogue, and characters that used to be fun and interesting. A intellectual nut-punch to my nostalgia center.Published 21 days ago by Mikejrod
