Complete Series to be Released only on DVD
First, read the release info over on
TV Shows on DVD.
I strongly suggest that you not purchase the box set.
Why? No Blu-ray. That is an insult to fans of the show that are capable
of viewing Blu-ray releases.
The following points are missing from the release posting:
- HDNet has been showing HD versions of the series, starting with season 1.
If it is good enough for HDNet, it should be good enough for a box set.
Even if it meant that a disclaimer was included with the set to explain the
first four seasons and the lack of quality in certain scenes. As an example,
the first Doctor Who series set to be released on Blu-ray had episodes that
were upconverted, because they weren't originally produced in HD. That was
explained in the release.
- Even if WB doesn't like the above, they could release a combo box set,
where the first four seasons are DVDs and seasons 5 thru 10 would be BD. Yes,
the fifth season must be on BD, as they do have true HD masters for that
season, Fans would not object to having a combo DVD/BD box set.
- Hell, they still have time to change the release and still have it be a
single box set, where the all of the seasons are on DVD and seasons 5 thru 10
are also included on BD. Doing such will allow those users that can currently
only play DVDs to also be able to play the Blu-rays when they are capable of
Many movies are currently released in combo packs. Why not this release?
IMHO, the DVD only release is ill-advised. If they are
going to double-dip the fans, get it right.
Emerging from his darkest hour, only to find the path to his
destiny blocked by ghosts from the past, Clark finds himself tempted toward
darkness at every turn by shadows in the present. Despite insurmountable odds,
will Clark be powerful enough to step into the light and claim his rightful
place as Earth's mightiest protector? Taking flight in its tenth and final
season, this modern retelling of a hero's legendary origins continues to blend
realism, action, heart and humor as Clark Kent (series star TOM WELLING) soars
toward claiming his birthright.
