Comments SDBD titles are on Blu-Ray disks with DVD quality encoding to reduce the disk count and packaging costs. Do not expect Blu-Ray quality. Alex: I’ve noticed a few reports that there is sometimes a video quality improvement based on earlier DVD releases, but that’s probably more related to Discotek media’s authoring process. Contains all 12 episodes of the TV series, and both OVAs (Nuku-Nuku and Nuku-Nuku DASH!). The whole franchise is based around the concept of a mad scientist putting the brain of his son’s mortally injured pet cat into the body of a combat cyborg modeled after a teenage girl.

Finally, the picks of the week. Blaine says, “If you have the cash for the set (which is not overpriced; it’s $5/movie on Blu-Ray), then I’d definitely go with the Universal Classic Monsters Blu-Ray collection.” Alex says, “Finances permitting, I would absolutely pick up the Universal Classic Monsters collection.”
