I think this thread should be closed until there is actual news of a release. Every time I see this thread on the first page, I get excited, but then disappointed because there is no new news of a True Lies release.

Eliza Dushku was on the Nerdist last night, and she talked about participating in some special features for the forthcoming True Lies Blu-ray.

yay for Twin Peaks, but boo on the X-files news. I'll hold on to my DVDs until those sets start making their way into the market and get reviewed.

Wait, the BD Star Trek: The Next Generation – Season Two is crap? Good thing I've been waiting for a price drop.

Re: True Lies & The Abyss Blus in 2014, plus The X-Files & Twin Peaks

I'll probably pass on X-Files.

I already have the DVDs (that big box of the complete series) and I don't watch the DVDs enough to justify upgrading nine seasons of the program. I'm also not sure how much of an improvement it would be, particularly of the early seasons that look cheap and low budget.

Unlike TNG, which I did not own previously, which was a no-brainer for me to get on blu-ray.

Re: True Lies & The Abyss Blus in 2014, plus The X-Files & Twin Peaks

Shit.

Didn't even look at the source before posting. Great. More "Rumor mill" stuff. According to the last "update" these were planned for this year. Not holding my breath.

May 2012:
And in other news, this would normally go in The Rumor Mill, but it's easier to just post it here: We've been checking with our industry sources and have confirmed that 20th Century Fox is definitely planning to bring director James Cameron's The Abyss and True Lies to Blu-ray at long last. Sources tell us that the hope is to do a big promotion with the titles sometime next year. Why the wait? Cameron is a pretty busy guy these days, so these things take time. (Hey, when was the last time you tried diving to the deepest point in the ocean?) Nevertheless, rest assured that the two long-awaited films are definitely coming to Blu in the not-too-distant future.
I guess "not so distant future" means 2014.

As the above poster said, it's not crap, but it's not the quality of the seasons CBS is doing in-house. But even then, they still went back to the masters. It doesn't sound like they're going to be doing that with X-Files.

What I understood from that article was that parts of the episode were upconverted, probably the effects-heavy scenes. There was talk of them having to back and basically recreated the effects so I guess they went for the cost-saving albeit suckier option.

Speaking of catalogue TV shows, I know Seinfeld has been rumored for a while. I was discussing that with a friend and he keeps arguing with me that the show wasn't shot on 35mm. Anyone has any reference they could share with me that I could shove in his face?

From what I've seen of the HD broadcasts of Seinfeld, I would upgrade. I'd have to see some screenshots for the X-Files before I make the call.

Seinfeld looks good in Syndication. At this point I wouldn't buy it as I've seen them many times and its on constantly.
