Re: do remasters fit with the site's mission statement?

semantics as it applies to the term "semantics"

how meta is that? or am I using the term wrong?


anyhow, getting back to the basics, back in the day before cloning was possible we had to live with each analog copy being a little different and subjectively better or worse than what somebody else had in their posession. the digital age should (mostly) solve this problem, to the point where we can distribute the best copies of each source as well as sweetened versions when they become available. but the real tapes are the raw sources. if you only have a "remaster" you don't even have that show imo. and when the remaster is a step backwards and the unmolested version is difficult/impossible to locate, we're in one hell of a mess.
