About a year ago I broke down, violated my pledge to stay out of the HD format wars, and bought an HD-DVD player (the competitor to Blu-Ray) at Costco.
A month or two later the HD-DVD consortium admitted defeat and bowed out.
So now I have a bunch of HD-DVD movies and a player. Yet another obsolete media format to add to the shelf next to my Laserdisc collection. 🙂
At that point I pledged to ignore Blu-Ray, and do what I should have done from the start – just wait for network distribution. I’m sticking to that so far.
Now – here comes the crazy – I pre-ordered Firefly on Blu-Ray from Amazon when it was announced months ago. I’m planning to buy it even if I never own a Blu-Ray player.
Why you ask? Because any chance I get to make the folks that cancelled Firefly look bad I will take.
