If you watch old BTAS, the quality of the animation varies wildly because they used seven different international animation studios in order to get s1 out on time. The ones from AKOM are so bad they fired the firm. TMS/Spectrum were probably the best. TMS animated the title sequence and some other episodes.

She has a semi-autobiographical comedy series coming to Comedy Central this month called "Awkwafina is Nora from Queens."

Is Comedy Central putting out good shows like they used too? Broad City was amazing, so was Nathan For You but I dont associate CC with making good shows very often.

LOTR is getting a 4k release (maybe) later this year but it's not going to be on either Netflix or Prime. You will have to purchase it.

Netflix and Prime rarely get 3rd party studio movies in anything other than 1080p and since New Line was bought by Warner Bros, LOTR would be on HBO Max (and we have yet to see if they are finally going to extend to 4k HDR streaming.)

It's also very likely going to be an upscale since it's such a SFX heavy movie and was mastered with a 2k DI. Could still be worth it for the HDR though.

More detail here.

Fingers crossed for a native 4k remaster though.

Animation, on the other hand, usually fares pretty well.

Invader Zim looks like poo poo on the DVDs and Hulu, but that's less a problem of it being animated, and more that they did one of the worst encodes in history and turbofucked it.

Might want to talk to all the studios then because 4k physical releases are frequent and numerous.

It will be released in digital too of course, but you'll still have to pay for it.

I watched Max Headroom on DVD this weekend. I went into it hoping that I would barely notice the difference, but... I very much noticed the difference. Poorly-mastered SD looks like poo poo.

There's quite a gulf of quality that exists within DVDs. Some are little better than VHS transfers, others look almost as good as a standard blu-ray. It has a lot to do with what source they used.

Batman Beyond having Batman as a broken shut in was something that blew my mind as a kid, but was a perfect setup to a far future Batman sequel.

It's also just one of the more beleivable ends to Batman, barring being killed for drama. He's got a hosed up life and he spends his time doing hosed up things and even the most generous readings of Batman leave a lot of blood and guilt in his hands.

When I was a little kid I expected that the heroes we had would grow up with us, that we would see them retire and others take their place. Batman Beyond clicked with me because it seemed like the start of that.

Turns out even back then I was following heroes who by all rights should have already retired if it was to be continuous. Plus, anytime there is someone to take over a mantle, they both end up retconning or tucking them away in some alternate universe, and every couple years there's some cosmic crisis to gently caress everything around again. Plus a vocal group of dickheads gets mad every time their successor doesn't confirm to their eugenics plan. I have to think even if DC or Marvel wanted to go hardcore and start letting established IPs die or change if comic book whiners wouldn't rage until they had to reverse course, leaving people a decade forward wondering what was up with their weird one step forward, two weird backflips back.

There was some newer show she was on I watched the first episodes of a few years back. The whole thing seemed like an extended PG version of a stepmom porno. Actually if I'm remembering right, she was dating or getting married to some dude who was younger than her own kids? Anybody remember this show?

As long as you have a TV that can handle HDR and Dolby Vision, it's very worth it.

You don't get much from the resolution bump, but the color depth is worth it, especially if you like a lot of movies shot on film.

The cheapest one at Best Buy is $100. Not sure how people buying $500 TVs will feel about that.

That's legit why I want one. Either that or I need to run some ethernet cable to my laptop. It is my server. The problem I'm running into is it is too much data over my Wi-Fi network if I want true 4K TV. If I do a full data feed it buffers like poo poo.

Physical media is still a $6bil /year industry. It's declining, but it ain't dead yet.

It's also usually cheaper to buy the physical disc with the digital copy than it is to just buy the digital copy and rentals are like 1/3rd the price too.

The TCL Roku 4K TV, at least, has an Ethernet port on the back (sorry if you already know this).
