WELL!

The Official LUCY ON BLU-RAY Thread!

Recommended Posts

Having received an advance copy of the set last night, and getting halfway through the bonus features, I'm thrilled to say the Season Two Blu Ray lives up to the incredibly high bar set by Tom Watson, Jonathan Angus, and the rest of the brains behind the Season 1 release. The quality is superb and it is wonderful to see so much of this extra content placed in its proper context. Well done, all! Even a fraction of the way through, I am in awe of the time and effort that is put into each release. It is such a gift to fans everywhere.

Why you lucky duck! Guess now I'll have to "rechristen" you (from "the Boss") to The Chosen One! :blink:

I still haven't gotten season 1 but I'm hoping there will be a bundle of both sets. Max can only tolerate one episode at a time. Too much Lucy gives him a headache, sadly, so I can't binge watch anymore. :(

Kidding. Small price to pay really. Once I get the upstairs set up with another TV, I can sneak off once in a while so as not to bug him.

There is a French Canadian version.

The "new" opening sequence is pretty cool in a gothic Valentine sort of way.

He's just not a binge watcher of any program. One or two episodes at a time of anything is his limit.

I'm thrilled to say that I received a copy of season 2 in the mail today from a very dear friend. I haven't looked at much yet but from what I've seen, it's absolutely incredible. The commercials are an amazing inclusion and are so beautifully restored. What a treasure trove!

It's a reputable retailer. I've used them for over a decade now. And there's a promotion on right now for 15% off your order, which expires this Wednesday:

And no, I'm in no way affiliated with this retailer. Just looking for the best deal.

I've only skimmed the tip of the iceburg right now, but it's a helluva package. I'm astounded at how well the commercials have been restored, considering the condition of the source elements. It's worth it just to see the original elements reincorporated.

First review maybe but reads almost like a "kid" wrote it.....a "kid" who supposedly just watched all this material on the BD and still misspells Desi's name "ARNEZ"!!! Really??? You're ON the internet AND have the BD and you can't "fact check" how to spell a TV pioneer's name correctly?? I think that's lazy and insulting!

 

:lucyeww:

 

As for the "best price", I hope as with the first season Target and a couple other retailers drop the price even further when it's finally released. I've always found this site helpful to check for the most up-to-date sales prices:  http://dvdpricesearch.com/  :lucyhmm:

According to them, the current best sales price is with DVD Planet, who has it for $64.92 and free shipping!!! :HALKING:

That is my hope too as I got the first season ordered from Target for $60 2 days before it was released.    That's sort of the price point I'm judging a good deal at vs a great deal.

Exactly! I'm with you: since the "suggested retail price" is still a whopping $129.99, I figure the $60 range is more than 50% off and probably the best we're gonna do, at least during it's first week of release, which unfortunately is when they really watch sales figures!!! These have just GOT to do well enough to keep getting released!!!

 

It'd be such a shame if the plug gets pulled because of "poor" sales! :(

Well my copy shipped a couple of days ago from DeepDiscount. And with that 15% off coupon it was just $57, so a good deal, I think. Can't wait to get into it!

Ick! I hate it when videophiles overuse the word "crisp" to describe an image. They should say sharp! SHARP!

Oh, poo! Crisp, crisp, crisp! And I don't mean potato chips!!! :blink:
