Yes, but how about the MSRP on Blade Runner?

But not a TV show ;-)

Edit: I see I got his post confused. I thought he was comparing it to a typical Fox TV on Blu-ray release (Prison Break) vs a typical WB TV on Blu-ray release (Smallville). So far the only studio that has been fair on TV on HDM has been Lionsgate.

More reasonable than Disney or Sony which has a $20 difference from DVD to Blu Ray.

For those speaking about the price - does it matter if it's a mistake? Amazon has their pre-order price guarantee on it, so we're golden.

It is just a mindset that believes that BD should be as popular as DVDs were, and they think they can treat it the same, double dip the same, etc. If they did what you suggest, BD would likely become the major format in a few years. With what they are doing, it will maybe get to 10% of the market. They don't want to give up dvds because of the money, but I don't think they see that they could actually resell catalog titles, etc. if they helped BD become THE format.

Because of the marginal difference (for most people), they have to work very hard to make this worth it, and they don't appear to want to work very hard, imo.

Preordered for Price Guarantee from Amazon. If the price drops before it's released, Amazon will honor it. I doubt that will happen with the great price that it's at. I at least wanted to ensure the $28 deal.

Another typical half-assed effort from Warner. The show aired on the Fox Network, too bad Fox wasn't the one releasing the BD.

Yeah, because then we would only be paying 50+ dollars for it. There is no excuse for them not putting a lossless audio track on there.

I got mine from Warner yesterday. It looks great in 720p. Too bad there aren't more audio options. At $21 it was a great deal. I think the SD version was $23 at Target.

Yeah, the audio is certainly lacking but I'll take the price on this one over Fox pricing anytime.

Anyone who got this - can you confirm for me that all 9 episodes are on on disc? Netflix keeps listing the Blu-ray version as being 3 which is I believe the SD DVD version.

The Blu Ray version is spread across 3 discs with 3 episodes on each disc.

I'd love to see a Blu-ray that could hold 9, 45 minute episodes in HD along with a bonus extended cut of Episode 7 and all those bonus features...

But yes, its 3 episodes were disc on 3 discs.

The show's sound mix is not sophisticated enough to have much appreciable benefit in a lossless encoding. Soundtracks mixed for television have limited dynamic range and their high frequencies rolled off so that they won't distort when played through tiny TV speakers.

Always brought down to the lowest common denominator. Joe Six Pack and his 27" inch with two 2.5 inch drivers.

Blind buy for me. I guess I got into a Terminator mood after seeing the Christian Bale trailer.
