Australia Seinfeld, ever on Blu-ray?

This is my favorite show and I just don't understand why it hasn't had a BD release, best show ever but still no word.I mean Friends gets Blu-ray and Seinfeld is 1000x better but still no release date?

I agree! There's no reason why it cant, it was filmed in 35mm and has been opened up to 1.78:1 for syndication. For the most part it should look superb!

TV on Blu Ray is really bad. So much HD stuff comes out on DVD yet doesn't come out on Blu Ray. I hate it as I don't want to have to keep buying DVDs.

Totally agree. Seinfeld deserves a blu-ray release. Way better show than Friends.

Seinfeld is just awful. Awful awful awful.

That said, I'm all for older TV series getting a complete release on Blu-ray. I just worry that it's not profitable enough for studios. I may never see MY favorites on blu.

Sienfeld is widely considered to be the best sitcom ever on TV (in competition with I Love Lucy). It's really too bad you don't find it funny.

I know I'm in the minority...though I don't care. I Love Lucy is classic and phenomenal. Seinfeld is a bunch of whiney jokes by a non-actor.

I must admit when i met my wife years ago she loved Seinfeld and i said that i hated it, it was stupid and the characters werent funny and that i would never watch it etc etc then for some reason i started watching it and ever since i have been and still am a huge fan Anyway i would love this to come out on BD

I find that im have certain perceptions about shows and movies but sometimes they change when i watch them or give them ago eg im not into Marvel at all and long after they were released i watched Iron man and Batman Begins and Spiderman and thought they were really good but then there are shows that i/we just dont like no matter what and "not that there's anything wrong with that"

I've tried watching it a few times. I just can't stand Seinfeld. I don't find him funny. And I think all of the characters are horribly annoying. I want to punch all of them.

Consensus seems to be (even from someone who worked on it), Seinfeld was shot 4-perf 35mm with no widescreen presentation in mind. Like ST:TNG.

There are some SD/HD network comparisons online which show no cropping but they're flawed since most networks simply take the HD version and centre cut it for their SD broadcast. In those situations, the SD version is actually double-cropped!

Comparing the actual DVDs to the HD broadcasts reveals obvious cropping.

Does it matter for a show like Seinfeld? Probably not. But saying it's not cropped at all is simply misinformation.

Edit: Here's a very quick comparison screen I made from the HD widescreen vs the DVDs:

http://img404.imageshack.us/img404/2...ld720s07e0.jpg (HD)
http://img715.imageshack.us/img715/6...5thehottub.jpg (DVD)

While not the best comparison to show, it's still easy to see we lose a little from the top, gain a little on the sides, and lose quite a lot from the bottom.

But early Family Guy was probably only made in SD anyway, so there's less to gain.

Does this site usually have a good track record with these kinds of listings?
