Today after so many years i watched again some episodes of the show when a friend came here and he asked me about the old tmnt series ,and i decided to show him some of the 2003 episodes to take an idea about it. But as expected it looks terrible. The show was made in 640x480 resolution while my current monitor is a 21,5'' 1920x1080 IPS. When it ended in 2009 i had a 19'' 1280x1024 and was looking ok then but now that evryones has 1 1080p or higher monior/tv there is a problem. Due to low resolution of the show it is blurry and ugly. I cant even imagine how it will look on 1440p and 4k resolution. Unlike the current Nickelodon show that is made on 1080p and because of that it looks perfect on all monitors and much beter than 4kids show. I also have a gaming graphics card(GTX 970 G1 GAMIG 4GB) so it is clearly the showw problem not my pc. Nickelodeon must remake the show on 1080p and release it on Blue ray for the current generation of kids and adults to enjoy it.

cool story bro.

what kind of graphics card did you have again?

A remaster would be nice.

It looks like **** because Shredder's in it.

Are you watching it on YouTube?

Nickelodeon must remake the show on 1080p and release it on Blue ray for the current generation of kids and adults to enjoy it.

Pathetic. Just pathetic.

Really cool story bro! Honestly: Neither nick nor 4k need to remake that series because it came as it came. The best quality you can get is a DVD source and still it is going to provide you with a picture you won't be satisfied with under the current conditions.

Your graphics card isn't faulty, your pc isn't faulty, upgrading won't help either, but what will definately help is to get some distance to the screen. Small picture then you say? That's how it is. As a little "trick" you maybe want to try out adding so called scanlines in your preferred video player to smoothen up the entire picture impression. If that still doesn't satisfy you there is nothing any of us can do to help, honestly.

I have watched the old 4Kids and Funimation DVDs on a $60 Sony blu ray player and a no-name 22 inch 1080p television. Those upscaled pretty well.

Maybe you should try tracking those down; the season one DVD sets were still pretty easy to find about a year ago. I bought all the episodes up until "Secret Origins."

I'm sure a basic full DVD boxset of the whole show would look just as good, but as neatoman said, a remaster would also be nice.

I've got a handful of duplicate 2K3 Toon dvds if you're interested.

Watch it on your tv instead of your monitor. Problem solved.

I alreasy watched on pc and tv from 2003 to 2009 there is no need to rewatch it again i was just showing some episodes of it to a friend of mine who is considering to start watching the series and i didnt expect it to look so bad on my current monitor. Guess what will happen when in 2020+ the next show begins and is made on 4k instead of 1080p all of us with 1080p monitors and/or tvs will be also having issues watching it.....

Boy, all you ever do when you're not Shredder is try to show off your CPU specs. Surely you must be a few grunts short of a dojo.

^^ Therein lies the problem. Should he continue to be Shredder, or talk about all his cool stuff?

Why not do both?

Shut up, Xav.

Why not do both?

Because that's a terrible idea
