It was time to do a re-watch of one of my favorites, Freaks and Geeks. The news for a Blu-ray release came out in July, but I somehow didn't hear about it until last night, when I saw the preorder on Blu-ray.com.
In reading the thread about the release, I saw that they were able to go back to the 35mm film. I also found out that the they've switched out what's on Netflix from the SD 4:3 to an HD 16:9 version. I imagine it's coming from the same source as the Blu-ray. Purists may have a point about the framing of the shots having 4:3 in mind, but I tried out the first episode last night, and so far it's not bothering me.
I'll buy the new Blu-rays, even with Netflix being almost there in quality. And I'll buy a UHD Blu-ray set if that happens, too.
