Well, I decided I'd better start watching the show. I actually ordered the first season on HD DVD, since it was only $12.99 on Amazon.com (with Amazon.com Prime 2-day shipping), and I didn't want to wait until they start surfacing on Blu-ray, and why watch it on DVD if the HD DVDs are so cheap. Of course, now you'll tell me that it doesn't really hit its stride until after the first season, and I'll cry not because it's over, but because it hasn't really begun.

Blu-ray.com review of The Princess Bride

They gave the video 4/5, so perhaps my criticism is based in crazy.

 Originally Posted By: Blu-ray.com review
The Princess Bride debuts on Blu-ray with a fine 1080p transfer framed inside its native 1.85:1-window. This Blu-ray transfer offers a nice, noticeable improvement over the DVD. The image is consistently strong, sharp, and clear, with well-defined textures and many eye-catching details. The image remains stable in exhibiting fine clarity in both the foreground and background of most every frame. Particularly impressive are the richly-adorned fabrics worn by the players. Each reveals all of the stitches and adornments nicely, and the varied colors of each, from more earthy tones to vivid reds and purples, sparkle. Likewise, the lush green terrains seen throughout the movie offer a natural, pleasant appearance that both reveal fine amounts of detail -- often down to individual blades of grass -- and fantastic color. A layer of grain over the entirety of the image adds a good cinematic feel to the transfer. Although a few speckles and pops creep up from time to time over the print, this remains a strong, eye-catching and generally first-rate transfer sure to please longtime fans of the film. This is a fabulous transfer from MGM, a fine example of a catalogue title done right.

I do have to make an appointment with the eye doctor for a check-up. I'm down to my last pair of contact lenses next month.

But still, I think it just looks worse than it should. I've seen older movies look better.

I know what you mean. I've seen some movies from the 20s and 30s that look incredible compared to some modern films.

I looked for this on Amazon, but could only find a $99.99 version. \:\(
