Well they had all last year to prepare it.

Now the question is, do I continue buying the DVDs, or now get the Blu-ray?

I'll cancel my pre-order for True Blood pre-order now on Amazon and wait until they price match Target - likely after mine ships. Stupid Amazon.

It doesn't cost much more for the BD, so I'm getting that. I don't really care that S1-S6 are SD, and S7 is BD. I see no point in getting it in SD if I can get it in BD...

"My Bloody Valentine" ...isn't that the pic of the 80's version that came out not too long ago? Is the new 2-disc version still gonna be $16.99?

Yeah that's the same picture of the 80's movie. I'm definetely in for True Blood on blu-ray and might pick up My Bloody Valentine (BR) later on.

The $29.99 price they'll likely sell for probably will.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised that there's no advertised price for Fanboys.

Re: Target Ad Scan May 17-23

Is True Blood worth a blind buy? I really enjoyed Six Feet Under a lot and I know that this show is also created by Alan Ball but I know its probably quite different.

I am in the same boat about true blood, I am already buying 24 so I might wait on true blood.

I think True Blood is definetely worth a blind buy. If you like vampires and nudity, then you'll probably like it. If you're unsure you could always Netflix it, but I think it's one of the better series HBO has put out lately.

16.99 is the best price I've seen for My Bloody Valentine so far.

I'm getting the BDs probably, but just to be a devil's advocate... DVDs still have a few advantages.
  • Slightly cheaper in this case, much cheaper in some cases.
  • Playable anywhere due to DVD players being so portable and so prevalent, while your living room is likely the only place you can watch blus.
  • Not being able to lend out your discs to friends.
  • A tenth of the market if you ever decide to sell.
  • Slight possibility of blu-ray becoming this generation's laser disc and it being harder to enjoy your discs forever.

Again, maybe not factors affecting your decision, but valid reasons and I can easily see why so many people are sticking to DVD, even if the cost is the same.

Your ideas are intriguing to me and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.

I sure hope Blu-rays don't go the way of the Laser Disc. I've already got too much invested in the format and upgraded some DVDs.

Although I can't argue with most of your list, to me this one seems like a reason to get BD and not SD!
No more scratched discs! YAY!!!

I won't lend DVDs to a friend until I am fully satisfied that my DVD will be safe in his or her possession. Consequently, only one friend is allowed to borrow DVDs. My friends simply don't treat things well. I won't let anyone borrow a Blu-ray.
