The major problem is that the show isn't shot in HD, so these episodes are all upconverted SD. They admit to this fact straight off in a little specially filmed bit to explain this. While it's a neat little bit, it's still basically saying you shelled out the extra money for nothing. If you have an upconverting DVD player you'll be all set. There's a few blu-ray exclusive features but nothing that warrants the extra amount for this. Unless you find it at the same price as the normal DVD then stick with that.
My other issue with this set (and I think the dvd set as well has these) are the audio commentaries. Now I made my review 3 stars instead of 2 since they even did audio commentaries at all and I think that's great but there's only a couple and 2 of them are horribly ruined by sticking Dr. Drew from Celebrity Rehab into them. It would be a kinda funny additional commentary for intervention episode, but having that instead of a normal commentary is just bad. And it's made worse by how extremely boring his commentary is.
So buy the DVD, the episodes are awesome and you'll watch them over and over, but skip the Blu-ray.
What sets this show aside from most others is the fact that the creators of the show; Charlie Day (Charlie), Rob McElhenney (Mac), and Glenn Howerton (Dennis) are also the writers as well as the lead actors. As a result, the characters and lines are acted out exactly as the writers had intended, and it shows. Whether it's Dennis' superiority complex, Charlie's illteracy & delusion of thinking he is a lawyer, Mac's belief that he is adept at martial arts, Frank's money making schemes, or Sweet Dee's yearning to become an actress, you will never grow tired of these unique characters or their countless flaws.

|will this include the christmas special?||
While they did consider it the 13th episode of the season, I doubt you'll see it included in the set. The cost of that episode alone is almost as much as the season set and since it did not air on television with the other 12 episodes I'm guessing we're out of luck. I don't know that for a fact...

|season 5 dvds problem||
I just received my DVD set today and experienced the same problem on the same disc with the last two episodes on the disc (Kitten Mittens and Dennis and Mac Break Up). It's somewhat reassuring to know that this is a known problem, but I fear this will be a hassle to receive a suitable replacement... Read More
