A few days ago I was over the moon with Shirley Holmes downloads~
I was only really worrying about the 4th season, which I didn’t really get to see. In fact, I only saw 2 or 3 episodes… I saw 2 more episodes on YouTube… In the end, it’s 9 or 10 of the 13eps. However, it’s been really hard to download the episodes from the SHC (particularly S4x02), so… very unlike me. I’ve decided to upload the episodes I was able to snatch and upload them on MegaUpload to help out.
S4x01 – The Case of the Calculated Crime
S4x02 – The Case of the Dead Debutante
As far as I’m concerned, The Adventures of Shirley Holmes was the last truly great youth-oriented television show to come out of North America. It’s a pity the episodes aren’t more accessible.
As for the new downloads, I downloaded Episode 1.1 (‘Burning Building’) and discovered the video portion to be quite high-standard for a WMV file; however, there were several ‘blank-outs’ in the audio portion of the file. It sounds to me like it was put through an AVS video converter (horrors!) or something. Whatever the case, it looks like it’s back to the drawing board for us fans–however, the drawing board is larger and comes with a greater variety of pencils from here on in….
I agree. YTV, Forefront and Corus Entertainment should just release the DVDs already.
I haven’t downloaded the first three seasons, but I’ve noticed some of the issues with the files, but still… better than nothing, especially with the tricky season 4.
Unless YTV makes an announcement of a re-broadcast of the show, people won’t be able to record it. DVDs would be ideal though…
