are going HD this Sunday and needless to say I'm exited! Here's an article
that discusses this and shows a preview of the new updated opening. Bittersweet, but I'm not bothered. I always wondered why they never changed it after all these years. I'll miss it to be sure, but with the move to HD it would've looked tacky. As for the pics, they look real stunning. Very close to the movies appearance. I know the opening by hard, and by just looking at the preview it's like WOW, look how everything is all touched up and no one is off-model or discolored.
Now starting with this episode, THESE
are the ones that will look significantly better on Blu-ray! Season 14-19 would probably look somewhat better, but seeing as these are produced in HD, there will be a noticeable difference.
