Full review coming, um as soon as I get through at least SOME of the monstrous 7 disk collection, but if the whole thing is as rocking as the first 10 minutes, it's solid!

All images of the HD content, are of course, copyright Universal and not me or HTF.

Oh and hey, if anyone knows how to submit this to Digg.com or any of the other sites like that, that would rock. This is my first 'scoop' ever =)

Unfortunately, Sam, IGN beat you to the review.

Absolutely! Tim Sale did an amazing job with the first season and I hope the producers are able to highlight other comic artist with the upcoming seasons.

Straw poll time: This set will have the same problem my Woody Woodpecker review did, it doesn't fit clearly into either of two possible forums for review. On one hand it's a TV show and on the other it's in HD. My logical assumption is that it should go in the HD forum but I can easily make a case for the TV side. Comments?

Since there is a standard definition release of this as well, it is my opinion the HD review should go here and the SD review should go in TV.
Universal Blu-ray Discs I will not be buying while they're offered only as Blu-ray + DVD 'flipper' discs:

The Jackal

That's my feelings too. I think there's a large number of people in the HD sections who only frequent the HD sections and it'll get lost if it's not there.

No, it's true. It wouldn't make sense to post an HD-review outside the HD-subforums (and some might even find it insulting if you did).

I'm with everyone else, leave it in the HD forums. Maybe a rule of thumb is that if it's on HD DVD or Blu-ray the review should always reside here. I'm not sure if a similar policy is already in place for SD DVD and HDM reviews.

Well, given that this section is titled HD Software, it would make perfect sense to leave the review here. There are no separate sections for HD Films and Documentaries and HDTV Shows.

You guys are clearly using logic in a case where it shouldnt apply! =)

In a thread that begins like a pictorial strip-tease act for a HD DVD TV show, you are probably right. Posted Image

So Sam - any interim thoughts?
