    I'm watching an episode from 1995 right now and it looks pretty damn good. I would say High Def. quality for sure. Definetly better than TBS's stretch-o-vision. This is 16:9 but doesn't appear stretched at all. I thought "Friends" was shot on video. How does it look this good???

    Seems it was actually shot on 35mm, same with Seinfeld. A mod should probably move this to TV Talk.

    It's possible Nickelodeon goes to the 35mm source but TBS doesn't.

    i think it is a new angle for shows that have the source to be able to sell in syndication. I expect to see more into the future of those that are possible.

    I wish they could do the same remastering for the old Mary Tyler Moore show they did for Hogan, Seinfeld and Friends. I'm not sure what OAR the MTM's were filmed in, however.
