On this Web site, fans can download a special graphics package, look at a sample box and use a template to design their own box art for the Stargate Atlantis Fans' Choice Blu-ray disc, which will include extended editions of the episodes "The Rising" and "Enemy at the Gates (SCI FI Wire)."
I have been biting my lip about this for a while now, but I have bubbled over...
Why this project is stupid:
- No one cares about Blu-ray. It is a dead medium and the production costs would be better spent elsewhere.
- The disc will have the first and last episodes of the series leaving potential new viewers lost.
- This is a poorly done rip off of the Star Trek Fan Collections, which are at the very least themed to viewers understand what they are getting.
The Bright side:
- They have heard the complaints of Stargate fans who have hated all of the DVD covers they have released so far.
I am not sure what they were thinking, but hopefully this is not the sign of things to come... with the exception of involving the fans in design decisions.
