Probably not on the songs, and if Wiseguy was filmed odds are it'll look better on Blu than the usual VEI cramjob DVDs anyway.

I may wind up being the guinea pig for this one when it comes out. I was going to buy the DVDs anyway, and the extra $20 for Blu is worth it to me.


Possibly the same here too. I was too lazy to order the vei dvd set when it was first released a few months ago.

Even if the blurays were just a lazy dumb static 480i -> hd upscaling, the primary reason I would pay an extra 10 or 20 bucks to get the bluray version is that VEI's disc quality for their blurays is somewhat more consistent and less problematic.

In contrast, VEI's dvd disc quality is wildly inconsistent and problematic for many years.

vei's release is perfect,all of the songs are included.
No, its not.
There are at least three song omissions on their DVD set

No One Gets Out Of Here Alive (S1E9)
Good Lovin' - music portion of scene removed
Nights In White Satin - music replaced

Stairway To Heaven (S1E11)
Hit The Road, Jack - music replaced


Possibly more.

In addition to these songs, there are at least 2 more instances of music replacement including Depeche Mode and Walk the Moon. The only thing the VEI set has going for it is the inclusion of the Dead Dog Records episodes.

Any brave souls have early reviews or thoughts about the new Blu-ray set, and how it compares to prior DVD releases and transfers?

I’ll probably take the plunge if I see enough recommendations saying it’s worth the upgrade.

I have all of the episodes recorded from CBS network airings so if anyone has any questions regarding songs, running times, etc., let me know and I can check them.

I put together custom covers of the four seasons in the Custom Covers thread

#1,066 of 1,066
Nice job on the covers!
How is the quality of the blu-ray transfers? Are they merely upconverts of the same SD transfers from the DVDs, or do they look much better? Trying to decide if I want this on my Christmas list, or if I should just stick with the recent DVD set.

I spot checked, and I see an improvement. Not huge, but some.

They don't appear to be SD up converts (although I'm not sure I'd be able to tell). Unfortunately, I had just finished bingeing the DVD set before purchasing the Blu set, so I haven't felt like spending a lot of time comparing.
