I'm talking standard definition with all the same content. If they did that they could easily fit them all into one box. I would just to save shelf space. I figure all the content from the 4 season DVD boxes is around 116GB give or take. They could fit it on 4 dual layer discs & give us higher quality audio. Just wishful thinking, I know.

I'm not ready for the switch to blu-ray yet on my massive tv on dvd collection. We just got out of VHS tapes not too long ago mad

I would buy the first 4 again on BD, and I want the first 2 movies not released on blu-ray to be released on BD while were at it.

I would think about it. Quality would naturally be somewhat better because BRDs hold more on them, therefore nothing is compromised in the process of adding kick-ass bonus features. But I suppose if they were positively identical I would not, because that would be stupid.

Still don't understand why BBS and TBWABB were produced in HD but never released on Blu-ray... hmpf

I would consider buying them on Blu-Ray if they were put on less discs, as it would be more convenient. As for the first two movies not being released on Blu-Ray, it's dumb, who knows why...

I refuse to get a blu-ray player until DVD players stop being manufactured.

I might for the right price. There are other TV series I'd rather upgrade first if they release them (like Friends for example, the HD quality on Nick@Nite looks amazing compared to the dvds I have).

Depends if they were actually produced in a large enough (in resolution) format or not originally.

If it wasn't something they kept in mind back then and the original masters aren't able to reach HD-quality, then there's no point.

As for putting things on less discs, that was what I thought would happen when blu-ray first came out - "oh cool, they'll be able to fit a futurama season on 1 disc instead of 4, with loads of extras!".. but that never materialized for any TV shows that I'm aware of, and blu-ray seems to be mainly used to deliver the HD video rather than cramming a ton of SD onto one disc.

I want blu-ray for every show I like, often it's the only way to get an HD copy without watermarks and ads and crap plastered over everything.

That last part will change. I remember when DVDs didn't have advertisements, either. I was literally like - whoa, the movie is actually starting!

Well, The Venture Bros. Blu-rays have the entire seasons on one disk; with all the features and commentaries and such... so, yeah... it came to my mind instantly.

And season four is technically 17 episodes b/c of the hour long finale.

So yeah, 17 episodes and all with commentaries.. and some good extras all on one BD disc.

I love not having to change a disc for an entire shows season.

Go Team Venture!

I don't get why you would want to waist 10-15 bucks on something you already own.

I imagine they could upscale them for blurays, watching the DVDs upscaleded in a bluray player the picture looks very sharp. They did it with Simpsons season 13 so it could happen.

So the show gets re-newed and not canned, and looks pretty on my HD T.V. set.

Money is everything.. what employee was it... that just tweeted buy everything Futurama you possibly can if you want more after the 2012-2013 seasons.

-

And..

Honestly, now that shows are being made in HD but sometimes ONLY released on DVD, you can really tell how bad dvd quality is.

My new American Dad Vol. 7 DVD set has serious pixelated blur going on.. b/c it's obvious an HD picture source does not transfer onto DVD without some serious loss.

I bought Futurama Vol. 6 on BD for me and DVD for my cousin.. I was shocked by how much better the BD looked over the DVD!

And finally f*ck DVD b/c they scratch so easily.. BD does not scratch (unless you go about destroying one on purpose).. which is why two of my Futurama TV movies are scratched brand new out of the eco box... and everything after that I got on BD and is mint, MINT!

Plus: on a future BD Futurama cover it could read... 1 BD... and then show a closeup of Leela and her eye.

Nuff said.

I used to think DVD was good, I used to think it was amazing. Now it just looks bland and meh after seeing HD. Blu-Rays are just exquisite, they've wholesomely amazing. I also love the idea of a whole season on one or two discs. Ok, so you lose out on a few DVD menu's, but it's much more convenient so it's worth it! Plus less discs means smaller box which means less space taken up in the house too!...

So does that mean you are in the process of rebuying everything you own on bluray? tongue

Whom is the question to, me or him.. or the other dude?

But yeah, I'd buy all The Simpsons (Seasons 1-14) and Futurama sets on BD.

Got a 40" Sony Bravia, but no blu-ray player.

When I get a blu-ray player eventually, I don't think I'm going to replace my DVDs with new blu-ray discs. Going from VHS to DVD was a much more significant leap forward in convenience and quality than the difference between DVD and blu-ray.

VHS: See Morgan Freeman.

DVD: Count Morgan Freeman's freckles.

Blu-ray: Count Morgan Freeman's pores.

Futurama is a visually appealing show, but the art is definitely not my biggest reason for watching it.

wow i didnt even know this topic existed this is my topic, i had 180 dvds in my collection and i sold them all so i could get them on bluray yes i would buy all episodes of futurama on bluray, my main obsession with bluray is the boxes as so sexy but also animation in bluray definition is amazing so crisp and clear i could watch it all day, what does piss me off though is my favourite film dog soldiers the most british film ever made is only available on bluray in America.... grrrr

Futurama on blu-ray sounds nice. I've never seen a need to 'upgrade' to blu-ray, but my old Futurama DVDs are scratched and the boxes are in bad condition due to years of taking them between houses and lending them to friends.

In other words, I sorta need new ones anyway, so I'd probably just get the blu-rays if that were an option.

I would buy the first 4 volumes on Blu Ray if I could come up with the money.

I prefer to stick with my Bender-Head full of DVD's. I could just pop it into a PS3 if I wanted HD Quality from Seasons 1-4.  cool

I would, but mainly for the upgrade in sound quality.  The visuals wouldn't improve too much I think, given that the frames were drawn using thick lines for old broadcast TV.
