    B5 DVD sets in Wal-Mart??? I haven't seen them in Wal-Mart in probably three or four years. Which were they in, the new, slim packaging (which I've heard about but never seen.) or the old packaging that was like a book and measured 7-5/8" x 5-7/16" x 1-9/16" with three disk pages each, each page measuring 7/16" thick?

    ps. Most Wal-Mart stores of the same size carry the exact same stuff, so if you don't find it in one store, unless it's merely sold out (indicated by an empty spot on the shelf where the stuff is supposed to be.), there's no use in going to other Wal-Mart stores in hope of finding it there.

      Most of the time it just seems that businesses see the US price and just swap the $ sign for the รบ sign without adjusting the actual figure downwards!

      Did rather sting a little though, as I paid full price for the DVD sets first time around and this just seems like a bit of a slap in the face.
      That's the price of being an early buyer, rather than waiting for the prices to come down. I paid $75~$80 each for my B5 sets, but then again I did have all those years of watching them which late buyers didn't have. <shrug> OTOH, I waited until "CSI" DVD season sets came down to $19.95 before I bought Seasons 2 thru 7. Ditto for "Supernatural" Seasons 1 thru 3.

      ROTFLMAO!!!! Like that could ever happen!!! ...get a sound brain in the CEO's suit/shoes and realise..... Oh, that's comedy! ROTFLMAO!!!!

        It might. You know....eventually....After a significant period of time has elapsed, etc and so on.

        Like I said, I have a flask and sandwiches...

        It will eventually, but I'd bet pennies to pounds that it will just be what's already out on standard def at the moment.

        Such a shame really as I watched B5:TLT on our SKY TV movie feed in HD and it looked totally glorious, so rich in texture and detail, even down to the weave in the actor's costumes.

          I doubt that Blu-Ry will be around long enough for that to happen. Our descendents will probably be onto using datacrystals by then.

            Mac, I believe you meant descendents.

              The last couple of days have been nuts. I'd like to forget that TODAY ever happened.

                Just a thought, not one that I particularly like as such but it's an idea that hit me yesterday.

                B5:The Gathering - Special Editon was a more recent effort and was made in 4:3 so there would be no formatting issues, how about a BluRay of that and TLT?

                Any takers?
