For many years I followed a "no bluray = no sale" rule, largely to limit the number of tv season sets I buy. (Primarily to avoid jumping onto an ocd compulsive collecting treadmill). The fact that many non-genre and/or non-cable shows are not released on bluray at all, makes this very convenient for restricting my tv season sets collecting. As a result, most modern tv shows originally filmed/edited in HD (or higher) resolution are unfortunately only released as dvd-only, where the intrinsic HD video is downscaled to 480i SD ntsc resolution on dvd. Most recent/current tv shows I'm not willing to buy as dvd-only, largely for the reason that the HD resolution of new episodes look really good and don't look as good as downscaled SD video on dvd. I noticed this immediately on past tv on bluray shows like CSI (seasons 1 and 9), House MD (seasons 6-8), The Office, etc ... where I also had the dvd versions. The rebooted Hawaii Five-0 blurays looked spectacular and a lot better than the original cbs broadcasts. Though with that being said, the few current tv shows I'm still willing to buy on dvd are shows I still watch like Criminal Minds and NCIS, where it appears the intrinsic HD video might be run through a "crappy-fying" image softening filter which makes the video look "non-HD". (This is most likely done for "artistic" type of reasons). So I'll open the discussion of which modern tv shows are you willing to buy on dvd-only, and for which reasons are you willing to watch such modern shows in SD resolution on dvd?
