    Back in the day it was announced season 2 was being produced for "HDTV" so an HD (or HD-ish) version of it should exist ready to be (re)used, alas all services seem to be using the same SD master it seems.

    Ah well. At least it's widescreen, because the 4:3 version (DVD) is quite the downgrade.

      Looking at it more I was wrong - it's 4:3

      Trivia note: When Lee takes Kurdy to meet Megan, the code he has Kurdy enter is 71754 - also known as JMS' birthday, July 17, 1954.

          I actually started a re-watch with a friend recently, only 2-3 episodes every few weeks, but I like the re-watch value. It is still available on HBO Nordic, just hoping it will stay on until we finish.

            Is this actually 'good' when placed on the scales of modern TV? I remember it being a tad corny.

              Maybe a "tad". Over the years I've watched it a few times and I think my main issue has become that I feel Luke Perry was a poor choice. I like Perry well enough, but I think the combination of the subject matter and Perry add to the "corny" level. Other than that there are a lot of really good qualities about the show as well. The good news is there are only two seasons, so it isn't that big of a commitment to watch and see for yourself.

                Some things were kind of silly - like the scene in the opening credits of a horse pulling a defunct car. But for the most part I liked it a lot - particularly the second season. Just recently watched "Man of Iron, Woman Under Glass" again recently and really liked it. Favorite characters were Mister Smith and Kurdy.

                  I've definitely seen both seasons in their entirety before, but it was about 15 years ago. I remember it having some solid intrigue but never really seemed to go anywhere with it, and a lot of 'problem of the week' type plots where Perry often ended up bedding the female lead. I think there was some kind of very ill conceived native american apparition at some point too. Memories are vague. Could be a fun re-watch, but if it didn't grab me the first time, I'm likely to be even harsher on it now.
