    Fringe: The Complete First Season

    Release Date: September 8, 2009
    Studio: Warner Home Video
    Packaging/Materials: Five-disc Blu-ray case with cardboard slipcover and lenticular cover
    Year: 2008, 2009
    Rating: NR
    Running Time: Approximately 17 hours
    MSRP: $79.98

      EPISODES SPECIAL FEATURES
    Video 1080p high definition 16x9 1.78:1 Partially 1080i or 1080p high definition, partially 480i or 480p standard definition
    Audio Dolby Digital: English 5.1 Stereo

    A promising new TV series from the creative talents who gave us "Alias" gets very good technical treatment and a sizable, if slightly redundant, set of special features.

    I really enjoy the show and it seems like a fairly nice set but at $50-ish, I'll probably hold off for a sale somewhere down the line.

    Thanks for the review, Cameron!

    It's a joke that WB is still putting lossy DD soundtracks on these TV series that certainly deserve better. Look at Universal Studios - The Office season 5 received a DTS-HD MA track. Here we have Fringe which would have a much greater benefit of a lossless codec getting the ole shaft in the audio department. Sad....

    What is worse is that the DVD has a 384kbps track. My review is forthcoming.

    Yeah....they did that with Supernatural: Season 4 as well....I don't understand WB's logic regarding their TV on BD releases....both these releases would benifit greatly with lossless tracks.
