Hi everyone, Bryan here….

Good news and bad news, folks. The good news is that Fox is releasing two amazing TV Shows for their Anniversary  on September 19th, being Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Firefly from Joss Whedon. There will be new packaging and collectibles with each set. The bad news is that there still isn’t and won’t be a Blu-ray or high definition version of Buffy, which just sucks and drives a stake right through my heart. This show looks terrible and is in badly need of an HD upgrade.

For this big anniversary release, why not finally release this on Blu-ray or better yet, 4K. Ugh. I’m tired of watching my DVD quality copies already. And, why can’t this be converted to Widescreen? They are still in Full Frame. Let’s roll with the times here. What I’m trying to say is that this new Buffy box set will only be on DVD, while Firefly will be on Blu-ray. Still, there is reason to celebrate. See the info below.

BUFFY Commemorates 20 Years of Slaying with a New DVD Boxed Set, While a 15th Anniversary FIREFLY Blu-ray Boxed Set Will Help Fans Find Serenity. Fans Will Receive Official “Buffy” Comic-Book With Exclusive Cover and “Firefly” Poster and Collectible Cards as Gift With Purchase.

“Buffy the Vampire Slayer”: The Complete Series 20th Anniversary Edition DVD Boxed Set
The teen years can be brutal. Especially when you’re Buffy Summers (Sarah Michelle Gellar) — a Sunnydale High School student destined to slay supernatural, blood-sucking baddies instead of hanging out at the mall. Over the seven seasons of this thrilling, witty show, Buffy struggles to maintain allies in the fight against evil, while also engaging in on-off romances with a moody vampire (David Boreanaz) or two (James Marsters). Now you can own this 39-disc set containing all 144 episodes of one of the smartest, funniest, most action-packed series ever to slay on the small screen — also starring Alyson Hannigan, Anthony Head and Nicholas Brendon.
