Why do US box sets of their own classic TV series suck so much?
Just picked up the German digipak releases of Hunter seasons 1 to 3, and they are awesome. Beautifully presented, gatefold single size packs, with episode guides, and really nice design. Episodes look superb, and feature the original soundtracks and music. And it just strikes me as really weird how foreign territories treat these classic series with such greater care and attention than the US. There was Tour of Duty which as well as not having any licensed music in the episodes, didn't EVEN have the iconic Paint it Black title as music, Quantum leap which had the wrong end leaps tagged on the end from repeat broadcasts, and was missing countless songs (I know the R2 version still has some substitutions in season 4, but the rest are as was). And then for Hunter we get a terrible cheap chinese bootleg style collection with discs that are all over the place, some don't play the quality is so bad, and when they do pretty much all music substituted out. Why can't the US give it's classic TV some of this kind of love that the UK and Germany do?share
