Not sure if this makes sense but sometimes to me it's the quality of TV footage that ages things more than the actual style, as when I've seen old stuff upscaled to HD it brings things more into the here-and-now and people look less old-fashioned.

Dunno about HD, as it's always seemed a bit 'Emperors's new clothes' to me, but I'm always struck by how much more 'real' 1930s & 40s colour footage seems, compared to the usual black & white.

On the dialects thread I made a joke anout the swedish chef. 
 

Question for Swedes. In the Muppets clearly The Swedish chef talks gibberish. For Swedish audiences is the dub different? Does he actually talk Swedish when dubbed into Swedish?

I had been wondering all week what type of helicopters the Army had been buzzing our house with every night this week but I got a nice proper close up of one on my way home tonight and they are the newish Wildcats (replacements for the Lynx)

AgustaWestland-AW-159-Wildcat-AH.1-1090x

In the last couple of months I've had 2 Apache Attack Helicopters flying right over my house, then a Typhoon jet fighter and today a Chinook went over. 

I'm starting to get paranoid!

One of the best examples i've seen of this was this Oasis song. The original video was 1997. The remaster was done a few years ago and just makes it feel so much more modern.

Should take them through Mach Loop. 

Much more fun if a little stomach churning.

Yeah that was one of the things I was thinking about, Liam and the extras all look like they could have been recorded yesterday but there are films from further back where it's  the same, and as @mjmooney says stuff from around the war becomes far more real when they manage to improve the picture.  The soldiers look they could be me and my mates.

I was actually in Cardiff, having a bit of an exchange of views with some ‘Freedom Rally’ people.

Had a proper lecture off my missus about how it could have gone very differently. She literally had to lead me away by the arm as cameras were beginning to turn on me! Spectacularly short fuse on me today. If you were verbally abused by a man in a blue tee shirt in Cardiff today and he called you a **** stupid thick as shit word removed and you stink… then I apologise. Lack of sleep.

You should be apologising for being too polite

You used the same words when I made you a cup of coffee in the microwave :)

I have a lot of issues.

Until that day, I hadn’t even realised microwaved coffee was one of them.
