Universal's 2007 HD DVD line-up leaked?
 
Apparently so...finally! Some good titles on the way!

I'm quite interested in Smoking Aces, The Good Shepherd, BSG: Season 1, Heroes season 1, Shaun of the Dead, The Bourne Identity and Mallrats.

God damn Kevin Smith, though. He quadruple dips worse than Lucas.

I'm pretty pissed I dropped $50 on Season 1 right after Christmas, but at least it was all BB gift cards. Sigh...guess I'll be buying that again... :o

Have they released any TV shows on HD yet or will this be the first?

If the HD version of a movie is 3-4x the cost of the DVD it makes me fear the pricing on HD TV shows.

Smallville Season 5 and Sopranos Season 6 part 1 are out on HD DVD.

I think Smallville is like $65 at Best Buy...so about $15 more than the SD DVD. Sopranos is like $120...but the SD DVD versions are $90. HBO really loves to gouge the **** out of their customers. :(

Thats good to hear.

Although Movies tend to focus more on visuals than TV Shows, so you get more value out of the increased resolution with them vs most TV Shows. Sci Fi probably is the best Genre of TV for HD quality releases.

Yeah HBO's acronym should mean "HEY BEND OVER!"

hahahaha

And yeah...I wouldn't be opposed to TV shows being released on a single HD DVD instead of like 6 DVDs. I'm not overly concerned with most TV shows being in HD.

Shows like Alias, Lost and such...yeah, that'd be nice, because most of those shows have movie-caliber visuals.

Shows like The Simpsons, South Park, The Shield, etc...not so necessary. A single disc for a whole season would be phenomenal.

Yeah talk about a marathon session. You would never have to leave the couch or touch the remote. (I recommend Depends)

Amazon has Smallville Season 5 HD for $55.95 free shipping.

Season 7 is starting next week and Season 6 hasn't even been released yet.! I'm hoping it will be HD DVD.
