    I'll probably pick this up too - I have Seasons 1-5. Season 6 was a major disappointment, and while Season 7 hasn't seen the show at its full strength, it's a definite improvement. They have a good mix of new and returning cast members and a fantastic villain in Jon Voight.

    Interesting. I picked up the first 6 seasons a while back during that BB fisaco that was way too cheap to ignore. I've only gone through seasons 1 through 4 so far. based on the Amazon pre-order pricing the BR version is only $10 more then the DVD. This just might be my first BR purchase.

    Is it just me, or does this press release spoil the return of a character who hasn't even appeared yet?

    ^ Yep and if you read the list of audio commentary participants for episodes that have yet to air, it's likely that those actors are in those episodes.

    That's why I never read all the details. Those who write these releases sometimes just don't know how not to include spoilers. Just like some of the DVD menus that either contain verbage detailing the entire story or like to use a snap shot picture of the climax. It's gotten to the point where I'm conditioned to looking away when selecting "play"
