That is not true because they were also released on VCD.

VCD’s are SD only. As far as I know, G’kar and TB (and Revivax for ANH) are only in widescreen SD… 480p, and even then not full DVD quality. Upscaling them doesn’t do much. I’ve tried. You can coax a little more out of them, but not 720p (though presenting in at that resolution does produce the best results, it still isn’t DVD quality).

What does that have to do with my claim that the 97 Special Edition was released on Blu-Ray? Your response has nothing to do with what I said.

You claimed they were on VCD.

Yes I did, and they were released on VCD. I’m correct.

Possessed basically beat me to this but the reason I had quoted you was you asked what the one dudes response had to do with you saying the ‘97 SEs were on BD. That you did and they were not released on BD. I’m correct.

I typoed BD instead of VCD. Sorry about that.

Did a good run recently in a comic book store. Beat all 3 planets on one credit! Unfortunately, my shield recharge after Endor wasn’t full and I died shortly into the final battle. Still, I rarely make it past ONE planet without needing to insert new coins. So I was pretty proud of this one.

You’re double posting like a mad man

Press release on TPM 2001 TV Premiere:
http://ncam.wgbh.org/about/news/pr_11202001
Aired with “R2-D2: Under the Dome”

They are hard to find as they are over shadowed by easier, equal or better, official home releases. Working backward, the 2005 broadcasts would all match the 2004 DVDs. A digital capture might be slightly better resolution, if one surfaces. The 2002 versions would match what was aired on USA Networks through the 1990s, based off the SE. TPM 2001 Premiere would have matched the DVD release which came out months before. Can’t recall off-hand if the ESB tv premiere has surfaced, but versions from the next year from Australia can be found on the 'spleen.

What constitutes a better home release?

Yep, Georgie boy was definitely making things up as he went along. He never should’ve fired Gary Kurtz. ** Return of the Jedi was originally going to be about as dark as The Empire Strikes Back but George scrapped that idea much to my chagrin. Instead they went with the version of episode 6 that follows a lot of the same beats as episode 4 does. ** It’s also quite similar to episode 7. Too much repetition in this saga if ya ask me.

** If we’re going to bring up changing premises, it’s only fair to bring up the fact that the premise(s) of Empire Strikes Back/“Star Wars II” changed almost half-way into the writing process. As per the story treatment and first draft, ESB wasn’t going to leave so many loose ends as the film did. Han doesn’t get frozen in carbonite, and Luke successfully faces his “trial” - i.e. refuses to join Vader and the dark side - and is a Jedi Knight by the end of the story. Thus, the third film wouldn’t have needed to resolve what the second film left unresolved (and no need to stretch the OT’s story into nine episodes).

And Vader wasn’t going to be Luke’s daddy in the earlier draft of the script for The Empire Strikes Back either. It still stands that Return of the Jedi would’ve still been a whole lot better if Irvin Kershner filmed the original ideas for The Empire Strikes Back. But then again maybe the original Star Wars trilogy only should’ve been 2 films. Hell anymore I just mainly watch the original along with the new Rogue One nowadays. 😄

Where can I read this early TESB draft that you speak of?

"Normal" people trying to sound like they are SW experts

I was at work a few weeks ago and this dude came in to get some free water and he seemed about my age so I offhandedly asked him if he saw the Rogue One trailer. Well one thing lead to another and we ended up talking about all sorts of other stuff from the older films. We get to talking about Endor and I mention how I wondered how the Battle of Endor would have gone down had they used that one AT-AT shown in the film in the battle. Well he insisted that they did use the AT-AT in ROTJ and it was in the scene where it points it’s lasers at Han to get him and the others to hold their arms up and surrender. I tried correcting him twice but he was super insistent that no, no it was an AT-AT that finally got Han and the others to surrender. I hate when people swear up and down they know something like this when it was obvious to me I had seen the films way more than he has.
