5.0 out of 5 stars Suggest Waiting for blu-ray release from Universal, 12 Aug 2013
By 
This review is from: The Returned - Series 1 [DVD] (DVD)
Better translated "They Returned" or "They Came Back" this is a wonderfully atmospheric and original take on zombies. Beautifully shot in HD and shown in the UK on Channel 4HD but for some reason the only release in the UK is on Standard Definition DVD. If you have a Blu-ray player don't buy this DVD but wait for it to come out on Blu-ray. The more people who don't buy the DVD, the sooner Universal will realise their poor marketing decision and release a Blu-ray version in 1080p. Magic Box in the US have now released a Blu-ray version with English subtitles but unfortunately this is locked to Region A (USA and Canada). The only Blu-ray Region B version currently available is produced without any English subtitles. Please Universal release a Blu-ray version in the UK with English subtitles!

Don't blame Universal. Canal Plus, the show's makers and owners, never released this onto Blu-Ray in France, despite being broadcast in France in HD! This is not uncommon. In fact, very few French TV shows shown in the UK, get Blu-Ray releases, more's the pity.

Since I buy maybe 10-15 DVDs a year, I'm following this plan for thousands and thousands of DVDs... think the studios are getting my message?
