Looks like they're dropping the redundant dvds, though advertised or not, I suspect it'll still include UV, since they're so aggressively pimping vaporware these days. Dropping the dvds makes sense. I never understood how that helped sell a tv season, or much of anything other than family films, other than giving people something to recoup part of their investment. And today, as more people have BD and the dvd market is declining at a reportedly rapid rate, it makes even less sense than it did several years ago. Disappointed that WB didn't price it accordingly, though. As rediculous as including dvds in a BD release might be for the majority consumer, it doesn't seem right to set SRP the same for a BD-only release that clearly offers less value and costs less to produce - assuming BD.com isn't guessing at SRP based on the last season.
I don't find this show funny at all. Mildly entertaining at best, the worst laugh track on tv. After every line delivery, the audience laughs. Put Community on Blu-Ray, that half hour sitcom is vastly superior to this fodder for blue hairs that know nothing of comedy, pop culture refrences or nerd culture in general.
Love this show. The day of the first episode I had planned not to watch the show, but my wife was watching and after the first scene she called me in and said you have to see this show. Why? This is YOU. She reversed it on the DVR and in that first scene when Sheldon says "we have to watch Season X(?) of Battlestar Galactica on DVD. Leonard says "We already watched it". Sheldon says: "This time with commentary". My wife pointed and at me and said "This show is all about you!" She was right and I enjoy it. And I love a good commentary.
Why are people who "don't get it" even bothering to comment here? I for one will miss not having DVDs available.
Not everyone I know cares about blu-ray, or own a blu-ray player. I were to take the set over to have a BBT night, now we'er stuck with Netflix. Or worse, Hulu!!
@Fingerlakes: Or maybe you watch a movie, a sporting event or, you know, partake in the dying art of the conversation. What you don't seem to get is it's not reasonable to force everyone to pay for superfluous duplicate discs, for the relatively few who might actually be using them. Even if 49% of consumers actually use those dvds, that doesn't justify making the other 51% pay for them too. Combo packs are as much about prolonging the HD price premium as they are encouraging adoption. And how likely is it that anywhere near 49% of BD buyers use the dvds in combo packs. Not counting those who resell them or give them to family and friends, I would speculate that, outside of family films, the number is closer to 20% at most. And the studios don't include them so that they can be transferred to someone else. Some studios even print "not for resale" on the dvds, even though it's unlawful for the studio to impose such a restriction, which they never print "not for resale" on the BD in combo packs, even though there are consumers who buy BD combos just to take out the dcopy and/or dvds, knowing the BD has greater resale value.
That said, I don't know if webmaster added this later or if I overlooked it, but, though the artwork indicates the release is BD only, the description says this set will include dvds too. So my earlier observation about charging the same for less appears to be much ado about nothing. I'd still think they should at the very least offer a BD-only release for titles, that doesn't also drop special features like WB's BD-only editions do, for $10 less and get BD's retail price even with dvd and more commensurate a seven year old format that's reached a strong market share, to see how many consumers are actually willing to pay $10 more for those superfluous low def discs.
This show is so freakin' unrealistic that the humor is sucked right out of it for anyone with the remotest infusion of knowledge in their heads.
Case in point: A hot babe like that would NEVER be hangin' out with a bunch of dweebs like that. Those guys are worse than the Carradine-esque boneheads in "Revenge of the Nerds," a movie that should have been on Blu LONG before this garbage.
