    My first question is this, if this really took over 6 years, how the hell did word not leak out that this was happening? I mean nothing is kept secret for very long in Hollywood goings on. I get the fact that they didn't involve Joe as he was as surprised as we were when the new versions showed up on-line last year.

    Next question is; what happens if this takes off for WB/HBO Max? Could this lead to new B5 material being produced? What's JMS' stake in the TV arena, can they do a new series without him? I doubt that we as a fan base would accept him being shut out from his creation were a reboot or continuation be produced.

    GAHHHHH!!!!!!!

    A Warner Bros. spokesperson told Engadget that Babylon 5 Remastered has been scanned from the original camera negative. The film sequences were scanned in 4K and then “finished,” or downscaled, back to HD, with a dirt and scratch clean-up, as well as color correction. The show’s CGI and composite sequences, meanwhile, have been digitally upscaled to HD with only some minor tweaks where absolutely necessary.
    Warner Bros. says that the remastering process has taken around six years to complete and was a “labor of love” for all involved. The studio was reluctant to talk about the listings for a “Remastered” version of the show that popped up on Amazon and iTunes late last year. The apparent error tipped off the fan community that something was in the works. The studio also declined to comment about if this would lead to a Blu-ray release, although given the show’s release on HBO Max, that seems pretty unlikely.

    I REALLY do not want to pay for that subscription.

    Hopefully it will be good for the show.
