I was fortunate enough to get to watch this when it was first run and I was stationed in England while in the U.S. Air Force. While I missed the first season, I was there in time for seasons two and three and loved them.
Like the person who complained five or six years ago that it wasn't available on video, I too would like to complain... it's now on Video in the UK and Germany, but not here in the U.S.A. :-( If it ever does come out on DVD here in the States, you can be sure I'll be buying the set.
As for the person wondering why the British TV shows have washed out color, my guess is that perhaps it has something to do with the conversion process from the PAL format to the NTSC format. As I remember watching shows on my PAL format TV over there, the colors were much richer than we had here in the States. It might be that the conversion was done from a film print rather than video tape as well. Old film prints tend to be more washed out.
It might also have to do with the fact that the British (at least when I lived there) didn't go for the garish colors in their clothing that we Americans did. After living in England several years, I'd almost be blinded by the clothes that some of the newly arrived airmen wore. LOL
His comparison to the color in Star Trek is probably unfair though. Star Trek was done at a time when color TVs were still relatively new and they went out of their way to use very bright colors on the sets and costumes, much the way they did the first color movies.
The conversion process must have certainly gotten though as the shows I watch on BBC America are very rich.
