Finally you get to see the ‘verse close up and personal, with more detail than you knew existed! Plus there’s extra stuff.
Besides how great it will be to see this in high-def – I may have to break down and buy a damn blu-ray player now – there’s new stuff! A new additional audio commentary by Joss, Nathan, Alan and Ron (on “Our Mrs. Reynolds”) and the featurette “‘Firefly’ Reunion: Lunch with Joss, Nathan, Alan and Ron.” Yes, we get to hear Nathan talk about his bride. I’d pay just to hear that… I thought I had read about a cnew commentary on “Ariel” but I forget where, so I’ll get back to you.
Coming next Tuesday on three BD-50 dual-layer discs, presented in 1080p/AVC MPEG-4 and DTS-HD Lossless Master Audio 5.1 Surround. Audio options include French and Spanish Dolby Digital 5.1 Surround dubs, an additional German DTS 5.1 Surround track, and English, Spanish and Dutch subtitles. You can still preorder it at Amazon and get it for $57.95, 32 bucks off the retail price.
