"Firefly" aired on UniversalHD for a while (I haven't seen it on the schedule for a while though... so I don't know if it's still on or not)...

Regardless of whether they were upconverted like Wicky said or not, most people shut up about the above after UniversalHD started airing them. A definate purchase for me!

Sweet! I really hope it will see a BD release. This is my most favorite tv show ever!!! Even if the special effects are onlu 480 shot, I'd still buy this in a heartbeat.

Been watching the entire show about every 6-8 months for like 4 years now and just cannot get tired of it.

True. Her hair could be mistaken as a weapon, and the game is on!!!

I would love to get Firefly and Serenity both on Blu-ray. Guess I'll have to wait and see what happens.
Ditto. I have the Firefly series on Standard and had Serenity on HD. Serenity was pretty sweet on HDDVD so I'm sure it will be bumped up even more on blu-ray. Firefly is great and I have gotten so many friends hooked on it by letting them borrow it. It's addicting, too bad there won't be more.

I see Bill got a little mixed up...

Also today, according to one of the show's stars (via our friends at TVShowsonDVD.com), there's a new special edition DVD release of Firefly: The Complete Series on the way later this year. We're hoping there's a Blu-ray edition coming too, given how often the show plays in 1080 on HDNet. We'll have to wait and see.
UniversalHD airs it... not HDNet!

It's not just the hair. The positioning of her eyes, makes her look like some kind of "frog thing" when shot from a certain angle!!

TVShowsonDVD says it's a done deal that Firefly is coming to Blu-Ray. You know Serenity will be released by Universal around the same time. Cross your fingers that maybe a sequel can/will move forward...

Sorry If Jumping Jack Flash was released on Blu-Ray I would buy it in a heart beat. Also I would get Ghost too.She was the best part about that movie.
The Color Purple was pretty good too.
I always thought Woopie was a good actress.And I loved her in TNG.

That is great news!

Quote:
Our own Gord Lacey contacted Fox Home Entertainment about Staite's comments, and asked them if this release - if actually coming - would be on DVD or Blu-ray Disc. Fox replied that it is indeed coming, for Blu-ray Disc format!
<snip>
The response we received from Fox was very brief, but also commented that "word travels fast". As you can imagine by how recently Staite indicates she was contacted (she had "just heard", as you may recall), this package is still in the planning and development stages. Therefore, a release timeframe hasn't been set yet, and many details have not been finalized. Stay tuned, though, because we'll be keeping a close eye on this, and will update you as further info comes in.

I'll buy it. I hope it ships with Serenity on the same day.

Wonder if they are gauging interest for a second film?

I wish they'd continue the series but another movie would be good also.
