I wouldn’t have found if it wasn’t the new CBS show last Limitlesswith Mary Elizabeth Mastrantonoi. I did some digging and found the above on YouTube posted by AmurG2. What do you think of the quality? Gradepoint has some shows of S&E that has the same distortion problems that hasn’t been posted yet.

I think the distortion is fine. It’s tolerable. This site should always be about archiving as much as possible.

Was this review on the "Indecent Proposal" episode or the "Benny & Joon" one?

The distortion (it’s bad compression actually) was a by-product of the on-screen recording programs that was used by cappers to get the videos (they were locked on the BV site).

Most of these programs were not able to handle the fact that the videos were presented interlaced.

I guess BV did not think that deinterlacing 3000 S&E videos for the archive was worth the trouble.

Too bad I did not have the time to record them all with FRAPS. That program can handle interlaced videos without these awful compression issues.

If you must, you can try doing some more "Frankenstein edits" of the full episodes by stitching some of these captures together to compensate. Though, naturally we’d prefer entire records of the full episodes.

Funny thing is, I saw "The Abyss" when it came out in 1989, then I saw it again in 1993. But I still haven’t seen S&E’s original review.

I don’t think they reviewed it on TV for the original release and it appears Ebert didn’t review it in print either. I looked on the BV site at the time and I’ve been looking for Ebert’s print review forever and never found either. This is a clear example of how the film was underrated and overlooked upon its original release.
