I've been waiting for an eternity for this release. So Glad Universal decided to test the waters and see if there is demand.

Believe me boy is there ever!

Right now its a Best Buy exclusive. If you try to buy it online it's on backorder on release day! The facebook page has almost 1 million likes. This is good since Universal will very likely release the rest of the series on Blu-Ray if the demand was high enough.

I picked up a copy at my local best buy.

The picture is stunning! It's never looked this good. It's very sharp and clean, colors pop. There are occasional very small dust specs, but its way cleaner than the original DVD (non-anamorphic) release. Also the colors are much better. The original DVD had a green tint...this one looks perfect. The special f/x footage looks a lot better than I thought it would. John Dykstra was being too hard on himself when he got upset over the theatrical release not holding up on the big screen. The models look great at 1080P.

It's 1.85 matted, though on a 16x9 tv the very small black bars top and bottom are not seen. And get this, the audio is DTS-HDMA 2.1 with the original SenSurround!

Way to go Universal! and thank you thank you for doing this!

The amazon pre-order link is now up. HDD needs to update its link on the Disc Info page for this release which currently directs you to Best Buy. This is the link from Blu-ray.com: http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/Bat...=ATVPDKIKX0DER.

This is a "movie" re-cut of the pilot (only 125 minutes vs. the 148 minute TV version), which played in theaters in Canada, parts of Europe, Japan, and, eventually, the US.

I never saw it. Would you recommend it?
