The Blu Zone

The following information is a rumor, and should be taken as such. However, it comes from the venerable, so it carries a bit more weight than, say, some random post on some random web forum.

"Here's a little holiday treat for our readers in the US, and a special Thursday surprise for everyone else; one of our trusted sources has let us know that Image Entertainment has begun prepping The Twilight Zone for release on Blu-ray later in 2010. Those following the releases of the series may recall the "Definitive Edition" releases back in 2004/2005 were restored, and HD transfers were created. This release would mark the oldest series to receive the Blu-ray treatment, and serves as a reminder that it's not just new shows that can look great in HD.

While we haven't received any confirmation from the studio, we're fairly certain the information from our source is correct. Image Entertainment is giving classic TV fans a lot to be thankful for in 2010, first with the release of Thriller starring Boris Karloff, and now the rumored release of The Twilight Zone on Blu-ray."

The existing Definitive Edition DVDs are glorious, with pristine transfers and clear sound (not to mention copious extras). But I will ABSOLUTELY upgrade to blu-ray. Fingers and toes are duly crossed that this is more than a rumor....
