Should I buy this *again* on Blu-ray?

Okay, first off, this is an *amazing* short, well worth owning. I snatched it up on DVD (and didn't even mind that it was a DVD-R) and have watched it a million times.

And now the Blu-ray's coming out. The short was originally made for the web, so I know that the quality isn't really an issue -- they didn't film anything where high-def is going to bring out a ton of detail. And the extras seem to be 100% identical to what's already on the DVD. So, since I already own the DVD, there seems to be zero incentive to upgrade to the Blu-ray.

Am I wrong? Specifically, I hope that in a few days, when people start getting their pre-orders, y'all can tell me if there *is* something special about the Blu-ray that'll make it worth ordering.

I'm with you - lovelovelove Dr. Horrible and have converted many non-Whedonites with it. (Every boy in my son's 6th grade class now knows the words and sings along to every Dr. H song...) But what is different about the Blu-Ray?

Seems like nothing. I agree that the extras are identical to what is on the DVD. So why buy it again? Like you, I am curious to see if there are ANY Blu-ray extras and I'll be grateful to anyone in the know commenting about this.

All that said... it's only $10. I'll probably buy it. And if I do I'll answer your question :)

I admit this is my first reaction, too. I watched the webcasts, bought it on DVD, bought it again on iTunes (loaded it on my iPad, even!), and now it's on Bluray???

I'll probably order it, though. Wanna encourage Joss to keep going (despite Fox!).

i already had the DVD but the picture quality wasn't that great. i assumed that since it was made for the web, it wouldn't be any better on blu-ray. but i bought it anyway and boy was i wrong! the picture quality of this disk blew me away. i was so happy. the extras are all in standard definition (save for a couple of the E.L.E. audition tapes) but the movie itself is gorgeous. so worth buying.
