    Yeah, TV broadcasts/VHS were by far the weakest link in the 80s and 90s. A good film from the 90s could easily capture more details than you could see in a 720p video, however, the only chance you'd have to see it would be in the cinema, and that's also assuming your cinema got a high-tier copy, cause analogue film duplication isn't perfect and some image quality is lost every time. Smaller cinemas would get copies of copies of copies, while big cinemas would perhaps get a copy that was done directly from the master.

    Smaller cinemas benefited greatly from the change to digital projectors, as they could now get the exact same image quality no matter how insignificant they were.

    The HD gives it away. Every time I see the credits and then HD quality picture it throws me for a loop.
    A bit off topic but depends on the quality of the film from the time and how well preserved it is. The resolution of film is actually significantly higher than 1080p HD so a good digital transfer of quality film from the 80's would look pretty great.
    Yeah, a lot of old TV shows were shot with high quality film (or whatever you call it) and looks great when upscaled for modern TV viewing. The best example of this I can think of his how Star Trek: TNG looks GREAT on Blu-Ray because it was shot in HD to begin with. They had to redo the special effects only because those obviously were not filmed.

    Spoiler episode 6I took a bit of a break after episode 5 (when Nancy went into the tree stump and it was closing because I didnt think i could stand another "just missed the supernatural thing, big misunderstanding" but then thank god they resolved that early in the next ep

    We watched this with friends 2 episodes one week, 2 the next than finally this weekend we finished 4 with them. I think it worked better spacing it out like that because we were more hyped.

    I just didn't know where it was going. That was what was nice. It just kept changing the story on me. I'm usually good at guessing before things happen but I couldn't. I mean occasionally I could but it was original and unique and I loved that.

    Just finished episode 6!

    I even have MissH watching with me and she can't stand anything horror-related! We'll be watching the next one when I'm back from work in a few hours.
