Say what?! I'll have to crack open my copy as soon as I can find time, but I don't believe that.

This has to be inaccurate. I've downloaded HD versions from Xbox Live and they're goregous. I'll let you know for sure when I pick it up this weekend from Target and get the bonus $5 gift card and use that on Transporter 3. Big spending week for me. I'm contemplating Role Models as well.

Exactly. The HD episodes that I have seen on Comedy Central HD over the last few weeks look just as good as the Season 8 episode "Good Times With Weapons" (801) that was available for free on XBox Live a while back. There is no way the Blu-ray is less than SD quality.

Just picked this up at Best Buy (59.99!) and had them price match Target ($44.99 in store) plus had them match the gift card promo which they just took an additional $5 off so ended up getting this for $39.99 Will report back after watching it.

They gave me a bit of a hassle on the price as they wanted to match the online target price and not the instore price. It was only $2 dif, but the fact that they were to lazy to make a phone call to Target (which they have done for me a few times before no questions asked) irked me enough to stay with it and eventualy they just matched the lower price without callling. They did not give me any hassle with the gift card as I had a printout from the Sunday circular. Try it out

Watched the 'Elementary School Musical' episode tonight, and damn, does it look great. I set my receiver to PLIIX on the 5.1 THD track, and noticed alot of surround activity during the songs. Impressive! Certainly worth the extra premium if you're a fan of the show.

I was told they weren't allowed to match the gift card promo but the girl said they could match it for the dvd price so she gave it to me for $32.99. They've never been that nice to me.

Edit: On a side note the PQ is pretty awesome. Well defined. Definately better than SD. I don't know where anyone would think SD is better.

Only had time to watch the first episode on disc 1 last night and WOW! BIG upgrade over the SD-DVD's I own to my eyes. Very clean, clear, noticably more detail (some objects/clothing actualy have texture or a pattern which I have never noticed before), colors pop off the screen.....looks awesome to me and cant wait to watch the rest. Definately takes South Park to the next level IMO

I think it's a given that the BD is going to look better than the DVD, but can anyone make a comparison of the BD to Comedy Central HD?...
"The Minneapolis Lakers moved to Los Angeles where there are no lakes. The Oilers moved to Tennessee were there is no oil. The Jazz moved to Salt Lake City where they don't allow music. The Oakland Raiders moved to L.A. and then back to Oakland; no one in Los Angeles seemed to notice. Continued expansion diluted the talent pool, forcing owners to recruit heavily from prisons, mental institutions, and Texas."
