This is what they did for HD-DVD also. A lot of discounted movies trying to unload them before a format change. You can easily get all these movies from Netflix at better pricing and who really watches them that often other than kid’s movies.

I loved Firefly till Joss Whedon kinda ruined it by killing off half of the team in the Serenity movie instead of rebooting the franchise. This said, the blu-ray looks very grainy and all of the space scenes looked out of focus. I don’t really think one have to blame the lenses on this one: when you are selling High Definition, you’re expected to give High Definition, not low-def rendering of the CGI’s and ultra compressed episodes cramped in the smallest set of blu-rays. Not happy.

This time in Blu Ray, now where is Serenity in Blu? No date, why not?

This is going to be awesome, I already preordered it and will watch it as soon as it gets here.

See the DVD reviews. This is a well done show that never had a chance to flourish beyond 1 season and a movie. Honestly, I prefer it that way. Japanese anime follows a similar TV format and the stream of great programing is amazing.

Back on track, it basically is a mix of Sci-fi and western… I hate westerns (not my genre), but love Firefly… Why? Well, it has great character development… likeable characters (all of them), and good humor. Honestly, I think anyone that can give the series a chance will LOVE it.

I identify most with River, but I have a bit of Capt. in me too… Like Capt. Morgan, JK.

I love the series but this Blu-ray looks terrible! The worse BR i have looked at, so far. It has an insane amount of film-grain effect added to it. I am sure they thought it made it look grittier, but c’mon! This extra noise makes the compression look poor (because image noise kills compression algorithms.) Using an Oppo player on the original DVD’s gives me a better viewing experience and only a bit less detail. If you want to squeeze every bit of detail out of the image, get them; if not, stick to the DVD set and use a good DVD player with HD scaler (like the amazing Oppo!)
