Well worth the upgrade to Blu-ray,
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: ROBIN OF SHERWOOD, SET 1 (BLU-RAY) (Blu-ray)
I bought both box sets of ROS when they first came out on DVD, and they looked pretty good. A little grainy, and washed out perhaps, but that was understandable given the 16MM source, and the relatively low resolution of the format. I was at first a bit skeptical of whether the Blu-Ray release would offer a worthwhile improvement - I'm thrilled to report it DOES!!!! These Blu's look amazing, the color now pops, the image is noticeably sharper, and while there's still some grain, it's film grain, not the noise from compression artifacts. The sound is a huge improvement too, you can hear every leaf rustle as Robin and the gang run through Sherwood Forest, and the Clannad Music - simply awesome! IMHO, Robin of Sherwood, in both the Michael Praed as Loxley, and Jason Connery as Huntingdon incarnations, is the best version of the Legend ever told, and these Blu-rays present the show looking and sounding better than ever. If you're a fan who already has the DVDs, and are on the fence about upgrading, GO FOR IT, it's like discovering this fantastic series for the first time, all over again!
