Re: Why isnt FARSCAPE on Blu-ray?

I wish they would just rerelease it on DVD so I can pick it up.
I've been dying to see the show from all the recommendations I have heard and from what I've seen it looks like something that I would enjoy.

Is Sony ever planning on rereleasing Farscape?

And before anybody mentions 'upconverting' standard def DVD players like they're the second coming:

As Colonel Sherman Potter might say, 'Horse hockey!'

Upconversion is universal. Even if your DVD player doesn't do this, your HDTV will. If they did not do this, then whenever you viewed a standard DVD on an HDTV setup, you'd just get a tiny box of image in the center of the screen surrounded by a foot of black on all sides. *Upconversion happens all the time*. And with any halfway decent HDTV, *its* upconverter will be better than any supposed 'upconverting DVD player' ever could be.

I mean, that's exactly why I bought the specific Blu-Ray player that I did: I can DISABLE its upconverter (for standard def DVDs). I don't *want* the DVD player to upconvert, because I know my TV will be better at it. Odds are, anyone here with an HDTV will be in the same boat.
However... most TV's upconverting technology sucks as compared to upconverting DVD players.

The British Amazon has them (the dvds) on sale. I just ordered my copies last week. I never bought them before, because they were ridiculously expensive. (It's region 2 PAL though, so be careful before you buy.)

Re: Why isnt FARSCAPE on Blu-ray?

I wasn't really touting the upconverting ability of the DVD player, so much as mentioning that's what I have. It is better than playing a standard DVD player through an HDTV, quality-wise.
Setting it to 1081i makes the picture fill the 40" screen though, and at that, Farscape looked good. Obviously not as good as if it were on BluRay and had been cleaned up/remastered/whatever.
