Indiegogo is just a middleman for the creators of campaigns, in this case IDW Entertainment. It's basically a site that makes it easy for people to set up their own crowdfunding campaigns.

IDW Entertainment produced Wynonna Earp, and is part of a large corporation including the IDW publishing arm, which published the Wynonna Earp comic.

Typically with Indiegogo you have to worry about projects that aren't complete yet, or possibly not even started, by new and/or unknowns. With this, the Blu-ray is pretty much guaranteed to be delivered, since IDW won't want to deal with the damage to their established brand. It's basically a fancy pre-order, so IDW can figure out how many sets to print.

Thanks for the advice and info! I've long been familiar with IDW (though not their non-comic operations), but hadn't thought through the fact that their connection would make this more reliable than many other Indiegogo projects.

For years the only way to get Prison Break's entire run on Blu-ray was importing the set from France.

In December last year, they released seasons two and four here in the US. Yeah, it was odd that seasons one, three, and The Final Break have been available for awhile now. But this is the first time you can buy them all together. Oddly enough, it looks like you still have to buy The Final Break separately.

Re: Why isn't TV-on-Blu-ray getting any love? (was: FX)

I just saw this post on Digital bits and figured this would be the best place to put this information, but a Friday Night Lights Complete series set is coming to bluray on 9/12. I still have the dvd series set, but I know I have seen plenty of posts here wishing this would finally happen.

Wonder if that FNL blu will have the songs intact. I doubt it will.

I doubt it will have any of the original music, I thought the score music that was in the place of the songs worked well, plus I watched almost the entire series on dvd so it didn't really bother me. I'll wait and see in term of the quality of the set to decide if I want to sell off the dvds to get the bluray set.

Funny how a small company like Mill Creek can manage to put this stuff out on Blu-Ray but the bigger studios can't! Will get the Knight Rider set eventually.

Miami Vice and Quantum Leap had all their music intact. I don't see why not with FNL. Only thing that probably won't get ported over are all the extras and commentary tracks from the DVDs.

All the series sets released thus far are barebones.
