C L A U D E Posted August 12, 2013 Report Share Posted August 12, 2013 No, it is simply an update in a higher definition. Nothing is re-colorized. This is a quote from Gregg: "The Christmas show (wraparounds only) was colorized in 1989 in standard definition. The only "fix" CBS is working on is to try to somehow "combine" the restored 1080p black and white version with the colorized 1989 version (without "re-colorizing" anything) to get pretty much the same colorization as the existing one, but with much sharper resolution and far fewer digital artifacts, which should make for a much better viewing experience. That's why they're doing it - not to try to match colors to the Jamestown sets or anything else. Unlike in the 1990 broadcast, the black and white flashbacks will be the restored, hi-def versions. The flashback scenes won't be colorized for this release." I just wanna see the pimples on the faces of those Chineese statues on the mantel, tis all.
