Default Noticed "Firefly" is on UHD!

A few people are always talking about dying for this series to come to HD-DVD. Anyway, UHD usually blows really hard IMO, but I noticed tonight that they were showing these episodes. Probably old news, but thought I would mention it for those people with HD dvrs.

They were showing these episodes on UHD last year. I watched all of them in HD and thought they looked pretty good.

its not as easy as that. It may require them to redo all the effects. 3D models may need to be completely remodeled from scratch or they may only need to be rerendered at a higher res. Composited elements may need to be reshot, etc. Not saying it can't be done, just that it might need to be done... and I was only stating something that I had read that somewhere on here before so don't look at me as any kind of expert on Firefly's mastering
