The courthouse was also used in No Big Thing as LEDmouth pointed out, it's weird to see it a different color, or without the clock on it... I recently saw it on TV without the clock, but forgot what I was watching... For BTTFII, did they really transform it like it was in the movie in 2015, or was ...

It should be easy to tell no matter what system you are using, I have a Yamaha Sound Projector (YSP-1000) that is very high tech and up to date, and has 42 individual speakers to throw the sound around, and it is still a big difference when the source is in Stereo vs. Mono... I think it's because t...

Dufus indeed. The sound although a bit higher in fidelity on the DVD is indeed in Mono sound, just look at the back of the box. The reason it is better or punchier is due to the fact that Season 4's audio was originally in Stereo and hence had a better sound to it then the other seasons... They hav...

That dash is hideous. LOL, it is crooked and all bent out of shape, it really is dreadful, and very basic... It appears that you would need to scrap the entire thing. It has a little less than 110,000 miles, yeah, not a great car for a conversion, I personally wouldn't want to convert one over 40 o...

Most of the time KITT only had 4 fog lights in the first 2 seasons, it was very rare to see 6, I remember seeing them in GOLIATH and GOOD DAY AT WHITE ROCK, that's why I consider it to be more accurate with only 4, and for some reason, it just looks tackier (to me) with 6... Most replicas seem to h...

Hey Spyhunter, I was checking up dolby sound formats yesterday because I wanted to find out about pro-logic 2 a bit more and came across info about Mono 2.0. Yeah, you are right, it's not stereo at all, just two channels of mono put into the two front speakers to give the room a wider sound field. ...

After watching the 80s flashback on Disc 3, I noticed that the intro clip of KR is actually in Stereo, so for anybody wanting to know the difference in the sound, please watch the special and if you skip 1 chapter after you start it, you end up right at the KR clip, pretty cool... It's a pretty big...

If we're lucky, they will finish converting all seasons on Universal HD and then quickly port them to HD-DVD or Blu-Ray!

Michael, 4 years old at beginning of Season 4??

At the end of Many Happy Returns, the crew states that they have been together for 4 years and that Michael is now 4 years old, due to his "rebirth"... Well that just does not compute, could the writers really not count? As far as I can tell, he would not be 4 until the beginning of Seaso...

I don't know how an amp would distinguish between a Stereo signal and a 2 channel mono signal. Radios, TVs, and VCRs can distinguish between the two, but for some reason an amplifier alone cannot do it...

Could it possibly be that NBC transmitted the show in stereo in 1985/1986 and Universal really didn't downmix? -Scott In order to be in Stereo, it has to have 2 distinct channels of audio.
