What the reviewer was saying was that the series was 'filmed' on video
in the first place. (As many British TV series were at the time -
video cameras had developed enough that it was cheaper and easier than
lugging film cameras about, the special effects tools they were using
were designed for video, and it saved them from having to do a
film->video transfer for broadcast.) So even an official release would
be a transfer from video.
