Brad, I agree with Gary, you brought up some very good points and the posts since yours are good ones. So I'll put in my 2 cents as well guy about this, but I agree with some here....I just don't see most of these older shows ever getting released on BR. There have been a few, "The Prisoner", and others, but by and large, BR is seen, imo, by the studios, as a format for new and recent programming. The Std format has been around since, what, '97? And look at all of the TV shows, as well as movies, that have yet to be released on that format. I don't see BR changing that much. If they start to crank out older TV shows on BR, I wouldn't double-dip on 95-99% of my Std collection anyway. I would have to shell out the $$'s for one of those BR region-free players which will play all Std regions as well. OT sports: Anyone catch that Arizona/Tennessee game? Fantastic finish. Vince I still remember that '05 'Horns title How about those Colts? Still undefeated. Go Saints (Mon night). Sorry, Gary....they're playing the Pats Great holiday weekend for me....'Horns heading for that BCS title game if they beat the 'Huskers on Sat.
