It's a bit of a crapshoot I'll admit. The original 1992 movie is out there on Blu Ray. But the series is a whole different proposition. The biggest problem is that it was shot on film, but post-prod was done on SD tape, just like Star Trek: The Next Generation. This means a lot of expense for Fox if they decided to follow-through with it, as they'd need to 'do a TNG' and basically recompose each episode from scratch in HD, re-rendering the effects, etc. Whereas TNG was popular enough for all seven seasons to be fully budgeted in advance, and I don't doubt Buffy's popularity, would it be enough to justify Fox commiting to seven seasons of restoration work in advance? Especially when Fox have got a reputation for only releasing a few seasons of a show before getting bored and leaving it unfinished. (Look at NYPD Blue on DVD, needing to be picked up by another distributor a whole decade after Fox decided they didn't give a shit about releasing anything after Season Four). Maybe a try-out would be more Fox's bag? Release the first three seasons (which almost everybody considers the cream of the show anyway), and then see where sales go in justifying the rest. Add to this that Buffy seasons 4-7 have never been released in the States in the format in which they were shot (16:9 widescreen). European and other regions got widescreen format DVDs, but Region 1 got 4:3 full screen and a half-assed explanation from Joss about why it was shot in 16:9, but he hates it and thinks the show should only be seen in 4:3. Bollocks to that. With the event of widescreen television becoming the norm now, it would be a shame for this oversight to continue. Personally I hope it happens one day. (I hope it happens with *lots* of shows, once the studios realize they can't market SD copies into syndication anymore and will have to face upgrading lest their IP becomes redundant in the new age.) Then again, if physical media dies a death at the hands of online streaming, then the syndication market will be all that's left. So Blu Ray releases would be redundant too. Do we think this series will ever make it to Blu?
