I just watched first season DVD in blu-ray. I want to pre-order the second season but am unsure whether blu-ray or regular DVD is better. I just want the same picture quality that I saw when watching Fringe on my HD TV at home. The blu-ray DVD I got seems to show too much detail, like actor's skin imperfection, that I don't want to see! However I'm not sure if the regular DVD will give me the same picture quality as what i saw on HD TV. Does anyone know? Thanks in advance!

I actually have both versions. I was able to pick up the standard DVDs last winter when a store had them on sell for $10 for the whole set. I prefer the blu-ray because I really love the incredible sharpness, and I don't mind if things like actors' skin imperfections show up. You see that in HD also. However, I will say that the standard DVD set looks very good, so I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Really? After watching blu-ray for 3 years, I can't go back to DVD. I don't mind the visual imperfections on actors, but I do mind scenes that shows flaws, like on Lost season 1 & 2 were quite a few, for example when Locke and Michael was trying to save Walter from the bear, we could clearly see a line next to their hip, they did blurred the line, it was invisible on DVD, but the first time I watched on blu-ray I saw it. But we have to keep in mind that Lost Season 1 & 2 wasn't made with blu-ray (or HD?) in mind. But Fringe season 1 on blu-ray was phenomenal and I can't wait for season 2 also on Blu-ray.

"Lost" was always shot in HD with the eventual thought to have it seen that way.

blu ray looks so much better to me.

how is this even being discussed? There is nothing subjective about blu ray vs DVD. 1080p is superior 100% of the time. Ive seen some poorly transferred blu rays but, in no instance was the dvd counterpart ever visually or sonically superior to the blu ray. Go with fringe on blu ray if the price is not prohibitive.

Does the Blu Ray Version of season 2 include the "unearthed" episode? It's not included in the special features section on the item page but is mentioned in the description.

So glad you asked that question. I had bought the first season on DVD, then I got the Blu-ray version-I am sorry to say this but the Blu-ray menu is very difficult to manage. It looks good, but it is not easy to access what you want to see. The DVD version is simple and it is very easy to manage the menus, and it looks ALMOST as good as the Blu-ray version. Tough call, glad to help though.
