I can't. Because now is the time for me to finish painting my astrological star chart.

Got my set today! However, am currently 45% of the way thru watching Eurotrash at the moment, but I think I might have to break off when I finish the next disc and watch a few eps.

Anyone received their copy and willing to share some thoughts yet??

I'm overseas at the moment so can't watch it, but definitely interested to hear opinions on how this came out.

I am very impressed. The extras are the star - and they are stupendously good, like the kind of stuff we were getting in the mid-2000s. But the episodes look really presentable too - the 2007 DVD set made them as good as they were ever going to look considering how dupey and degraded the masters are, and this very tastefully adds the film sequences in good condition to those and several hours of new extras.

There are also extras not listed on the packaging/promo - 5 minutes of original trailers (inc specially shot material) and continuity, plus the entire 'Just For Fun' outtakes/wrap party tape in near-broadcast quality.

No interlacing/grading mistakes or repeats of the Triffids/Red Dwarf debacles, you'll all be happy to know.

I will defo have a watch this weekend, interestingly I happened to catch an episode ("Interesting") on BBC TV this week (Tue evening, 9pm) - It was BBC4, so I was able to watch it on the equivalent BBC4 HD channel, must admit the episode looked a bit grainy, but then would the version on TV be the same as the version in the new set? I've been watching the TOTP shows on the HD channels over recent months and they defo look better ...

The copy I ordered as a birthday gift (for today) hasn’t arrived from Amazon yet. I guess it’s my own fault for using them for a preorder, but, for someone who has Prime, why the absolute fudge are they using Royal Mail for deliveries during a period of many mail strikes? Madness.

Same, Amazon are really hit and miss, what's the point in prime if it isn't shipped direct through their own carriers or at least in time for release day.

Did you think they wouldn't? I had to get from there as opposed to Fopp, that didn't have it. That's actually the first time in a long while I've been into Fopp and not come out with anything.

I've learned to assume nothing, as far as the Belfast store goes.

The Young Ones went through a very extensive process of editing, re-editing etc, with lots of pre-filming, Quantel work etc, so the TX masters are a few tape generations down. Add to that they were all on one-inch rather than two-inch and the lighting was often lower than studio VT shows of the time tended to be, and the fact that they were played out a LOT pre-digital, and they are a bit worse for wear. There are some Doctor Who stories from the late 80s which suffer similarly.

1" wasn't the most suited format for multi-generation editing as it became noisy and washed out as you dropped generations.

However, as evidenced by other BBC 1" material on Blu-ray, just avoiding DVD compression improves things immensely.

Waiting patiently as im in Los Angeles and it will arrive ...whenever. I swear amazon Prime is such a scam i never use it and i get the same result as those that do. I just make sure i spend the free shipping threshold, or buying from amazon.uk wait for good sales.

Bought The Young Ones with Whoops Apocalypse series DVD which i love, did they ever put that on bluray??

Still waiting for Amazon to kick into gear and send mine. The pre-order system is so random.
