Actually, I believe Paramount has mentioned something official about the first season being available on HD DVD this year. Once we've the official information and specs of this HD DVD title, you can be sure to find them posted on this blog.
- Lastly, we've decided to add the Live Earth 7.7.07 Badge to this blog in support of the cause for environmentally sustainable development and to raise awareness of the need for positive action to solve global climate crisis.
