Hi there!Thanks! It's great to see a group getting onto it, but its seems like TVS are a german group focusing on the dubbed version, so we still need somebody to pick up the english version.
I'm not sure on the audio quality of netflix? If the audio is not improved over DVD then I guess it would be possible to combine them - however that is a lot of effort.
TVS will release the first three seasons with 2 audio lines, one in German 2.0 (source from DVD) and the other in English 5.1 (source from Netflix). Season four & five is unclear, because for Germany there are only crappy TV audio sources.
The TVS member "simon" who does the project has now decided against 1080p, as there is not (or barely) any difference to 720p (Malcolm masters or Netflix masters are simply too bad for 1080p) and the increased file size is unncessary.
Season 1 is completed now.
General information for season 1:
- File size 1.1-1.4 GB
- Bitrate ~6000 kbps
- German Audio AC-3 224 Kbps 2.0
- English Audio AC-3 640 Kbps 5.1
So maybe it's that Netflix compressed the quality?Super 16 will always look better than "normal 720p" as you call it. A bunch of shows that were shot on 16mm look gorgeous remastered in HD. "Friends" or "That '70s Show" for example.
I respectfully disagree. Both of your shows mentioned do not look "excellent" (that's the word I used). 1080p filmed with a good professional camera will look better (looks "cleaner" in my opinion).Super 16 will always look better than "normal 720p" as you call it.

Exactly! Let's try and keep supporting those small but extremely dedicated niche companies, who went out of their way to get MITM released, while we can. I know almost 100 euros for the box set (on French Amazon, both new and secondhand) may sound like a hefty sum in all, but actually it's only 66 cents per episode, which you can view as often as you want, and which includes extras!You can still buy the French DVD sets on Amazon. They actually released a S1-7 box set. They do destroy the UK sets in term of picture quality and they also include the original English audio.
