So the BR set for this is 180 and the DVD set is 92. Can anyone tell me if it's worth paying twice the price for the Blu-Rays. Mainly, is there any difference between the two, episode- or feature-wise? Or it simply twice the price because of the higher quality format.

Thanks for the input. I don't have either set yet, mainly I was just curious if it'd be better to pay for the DVD's since they are so much cheaper. Is the Blu-Ray set pretty much the same as the DVD set as far as features? If everything is the same I would rather just go with the cheaper DVD set.

The blu-rays have more bonus materials, plus the original pilot. They are also remastered better than the DVDs.

I personally think its worth the extra cash for BR. I've only rented one of the discs but I ordered the set today. The difference is pretty substantial on a nice TV. Blu Ray won't be replaced by another physical media for at least a decade, and it looks amazing. The DVDs are great but you will absolutely see a difference between the two, audio and picture wise.

The added detail on the BR discs combined with the remastering makes it worthwhile. You can see all the glorious detail present in the 35mm film negative. The added commentary tracks are also a nice bonus.

Bummer, the 90 minute documentary seems like a significant missing thing.. the rest, not so much (compared to the huge additions for the BluRay set).

I thought this one was going to be Gold Box today too.. guess I'll wait for it to come down..
