If they released a full series Blu Ray of the 2012 show, I'd be all in. But if there were any problems with it, or if they did the kind of weird episode allocation we saw on the F.W. series, I'd stay away completely.

No reason, room, or tolerance for Hollywood B.S. anymore at all whatsoever.

Nickelodeon has released Blu-ray sets for the Avatar series despite The Last Airbender being mastered in 2D. The 2012 cartoon is popular among fans and Ciro Nieli has shown interest in keeping this version alive in the future. I think a Blu-ray release is possible, but I wouldn't expect it anytime soon.

I understand people want a hard copy of the HD versions on disc. Maybe it will happen.

But in the meantime, if you are okay with digital, you can actually get the complete series pretty cheap.

DVD and Bluray

If it ever will happen, it must happen during the upcoming years. For every year passing, DVD and Bluray are already becoming history.

I have a 6 tb media server at my place that holds music, movies, T.V., etc. I like digital, but all of that material is on a platter that I own, can transfer from and back up.

If you "own" something digital yet you have to access it remotely from a stream, or can't copy and transfer it to back it up, then you don't own it.

There will be a day when these companies literally take away or shut down something you've bought, or otherwise forfeit your ability to use it. As a point of convo, I don't think many millenials understand this.

Which is why I still buy DVD's. I rather have something tangible, of which I know won't ever go off line.

If they DO issue a full Blue Ray boxset, I hope they include the test footage, since a lot of the times that differs from what ends up in the episode.

Also, stores that used to carry mostly blu-rays and only SOME DVDs now ONLY carry DVDs.

It's like (largely) the younger generation that bought blu-rays switched to digital only... which leaves only the older generation with their DVD players and distrust of blu-rays ("It's a scam! It looks the same as DVD!" etc.).

I hate that mentality too. I'm an A/V nerd - I calibrate all of my sets with software, photometers, furniture distance measurement, all of that. I've got the THX blue filter glasses for color calibration. It's a hobby.

I love a little soap opera effect, but then I got my Sony 4k and there processing software is second to none. With the right settings you'd swear you were watching film projection as it was always meant to be.

But all of that is going the way of the dodo because until the entire country has super gigabyte bandwidth, we aren't going to get the anything that looks as good as disc based media.

Has Season 5 of the Nickelodeon Cartoon still not been released to DVD in Region 2, or what? I've no personal interest in buying them, but I just would like to know.

Yes, season five has been for sale on DVD region 2, I already own all four separate parts and I've seen the DVD box set in the shops.

The ship hasn't reached the port yet. As long as there is a will, there is a way.

Well, they need to scan the original films of each episode first, I'm not sure they still have those. That's a huge amount of work, they probably don't think they can make a profit out of it.

Do they? The episodes have already been released digitally in HD so Id assume they have everything they need to release them on Blu-Ray. The only reason I think it likely wont happen now is because of time. Every year takes us further from the series and digital/streaming grows in popularity over physical media.
