Better quality picture? Remastering?

"I'm a big HMer fan and consider the work between these four actors funny, touching and timeless. If you don't like certain episodes, fine; To each his own. I do have to scratch my head about those reviewers who take exception to the picture quality; That the DVD should be clearer than the original VHS releases. Are they aware that the "Lost Episodes"
are "Kinescopes" and not "Film" like the "Classic 39". Up until 1957 most TV sitcoms and all variety shows were broadcast live with no means to record the transmission. (Networks wouldn't film most shows due to the expense involved.(Multiple cameras,editing, developing etc.) "Lucy" was an exception. ) Standard practice was to use a single "Film" camera focused on a studio moniter during the actual performance. This would then be quickly developed and shown several hours later for the west coast. These resulting "Moniter films" are "Kinescopes "and they are no where near as clear as film, the images look crammed into the screen since the film camera was slightly "zoomed in" so as not to get the edges of the live moniter. In '57 video tape was introduced and shows that weren't filmed were at least preserved for posterity on videotape. I doubt any modern technology could undo the qualities of a Kinescope. These are treasures from the early TV age. I personally wouldn't be so picky about the picture quality. These shows are what they are; Great comedy thankfully preserved in a primitive medium. Think of all the shows that weren't Kinescoped. They were seen once and were gone, lost in the ethos of time and space! Anyway, I'll take Kinescoped Honeymooners over any number of digitally recorded reality shows today."
HONEYMOONERS BOXED DVD - Volume #3

"Nice display & photos, very good packaging case. Colorful booklet with liner notes on each episode synopsis and original dates that the shows ran. Cute colored discs. Each boxed set has 4 discs; well worth the money. Extras, bonus features, and comedy bits are found on these boxed editions. not to be found anywhere else."
Great gift.
