Fringe Season 3 Blu-ray Unboxing

Fringe Season 3 is out today on Blu-ray and DVD. The Blu-ray is available at Amazon for $44.99, and the DVD is $36.99. Both qualify for free shipping.

Best Buy has an exclusive "lenticular" cover (seen below) that shows the Blue or Red universe depending on how you look. However, they are priced $10 more than Amazon, but you do get a $10 Best Buy gift card with purchase.

The 22 episodes are spread over four blu-ray discs, and contains 3 hours of bonus material, including the Blu-ray exclusive "Glimmer to the Other Side". Here is a full summary of the extras from
The 4-disc Blu-ray release of Fringe: The Complete Third Season isn't exhaustive -- two audio commentaries and an hour of extras doesn't amount to much -- but it does feature a first for a Warner television release: a Maximum Episode Mode Picture-in-Picture experience. Sure, it's only available for one episode, but if future Warner releases follow suit (particularly if more episodes are explored per season), TV fans are in for a real treat.
  • Audio Commentaries: Two audio commentaries are available: "The Plateau" on Disc One, with executive producer Jeff Pinkner, writer/co-executive producer Monica Owusu-Breen and editor Timothy A. Good, and "Lysergic Acid Diethylamide" on Disc Four, with producer Tanya Swerling, editor Luyen Vu and visual effects supervisor Jay Worth. Both tracks are informative, I'll give them that, but the cast is sorely missed. And with twenty-two episodes spread across four discs, a whopping two crew commentaries just doesn't cut it.
  • Maximum Episode Mode: Glimmer to the Other Side (Disc 3, HD, 46 minutes): Executive producers Jeff Pinkner and J.H. Wyman host this single-episode twist on Warner's Maximum Movie Mode formula, and it's a blast; such a blast that it's a shame more episodes don't feature a MEM track. What awaits those who venture into Episode 16, "OS," with the Maximum Episode Mode engaged? Interviews, behind-the-scenes footage, optional production featurettes, special effects breakdowns and more, all courtesy of a dynamic Picture-in-Picture window that sometimes houses the MEM content and sometimes houses the episode itself (so the MEM content can have more room to breathe). It's hands down the best feature in the set.
  • Duality of Worlds (Disc 4, HD, 30 minutes): Explore Walternate's universe in four production featurettes: "The Other You," "Visualizing an Alternate World," "A Machine of Destiny" and "The Psychology of Duality."
  • Constructing an Extra-Sensory Soundscape (Disc 4, HD, 7 minutes): How does the Fringe creative team tamper with your psyche? Through sound effects, music cues and other sonic sleight of hand.
  • Secrets of Fringe: The First People (Disc 4, HD, 2 minutes): An all-too-brief Q&A session with Jeff Pinkner and Jay Worth about The First People and their place in the series.
  • Gag Reel (Disc 4, HD, 3 minutes): Simple, funny and to the point. Just how I like my outtakes.
  • Animating "The Lysergic Acid Diethylamide" (Disc 4, HD, 8 minutes): A look at Episode 19's jump-the-shark animated sequences and the deadlines that propelled it.
  • Network Promos (Disc 4, HD, 6 minutes): Three lengthy promos round out the package.
  • BD-Live Functionality

Which version of Fringe Season 3 did you buy (or plan to buy)?

Um--didn't this come out two weeks ago? Amazon, Best Buy and Wikipedia are all telling me that it came out on the 6th. In addition to that, I got mine on the 6th. As did several friends.

I picked up the blu-ray on the 8th and I have to say I really enjoyed the "Glimmer to the Other Side" feature. I just found it really interesting to watch, and it was also fun and interactive. I wish they did more than just one episode. Oh well, guess we will just have to wait for the season 4 blu-ray...
Oh and Lance's "One more time" was deeply missed. You know what I'm talking about.

I bought the DVDs from Amazon, had it on pre-order since February I think. Also bought the DVD set from BestBuy with lenticular cover.

By the way, already have S4 on pre-order at Amazon :)
