3.0 out of 5 stars Love the show and love the third season, but not thrilled with the DVD, January 26, 2013
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Fringe: Season 3 (DVD)
The third season, like the start of the third act of a three-act play, really gets into the meat of the story and offers plenty of twists and turns. Sadly the video quality on the all the "Fringe" DVDs is not as good as other series I've seen. (The "CSI" DVD boxes look almost as good as the HD broadcasts if you have a decent up-converting DVD player.) These discs sometimes go blocky and pixelated, looking almost like video streamed over a low bandwidth network connection. I ended up replacing all four seasons with the Blu Ray releases (which also include a few extra features not found on the DVDs.) This is the first time I have ever rebought a TV series on BD, but I think "Fringe" is worth it. (I also bought each season when I could get the best deals, either here at Amazon or at TheWBStore.com, which currently has S1, S2 and S4 for $21.49 each with free shipping. S3 was sold out, last I looked.) But if DVD is your only option and you can get them on sale, the story and the acting more than make up for the image quality issues. I'm going to give my DVD sets to a friend I'm trying to get hooked on the show.
