Ug.... so here's what the email said about needing a blu-ray player, etc. I put the crappy parts in bold and also omitted irrelevant stuff:

"When our state-of-the-art campus opens its doors December 8, 2009, on LOST: The Complete Fifth Season
Blu-ray™, you can look forward to being engaged in a first-of-its-kind educational experience. Powered by
BD-Live™, LOST University’s exciting multi-semester program allows students to explore the mysteries, secrets and stories of this epic series from an academic point of view.

I think the point is for you to buy Season 5 on blu-ray, and if you don't have a player for it, to buy a player, too.  :'( TPTB/ABC have done their fans a great disservice. Maybe I'll stop by every once in a while. And I'll still see you here!  :-* Don't worry!

I will go there once in awhile. I am disappointed that it is just a big selling point for the blu ray. I was hoping for more insight.

Spoken like a man who has disposable income...  ;) I'm the kind of person who, told that she must do something, does everything in her power to NOT do it. I don't like being forced into things. I had no problem with blu-ray before, but now I adamantly don't want it. I'll spend money on Lost prints, and numbers t-shirts now and then, but having to spend $300 for a blu-ray player, then another $100+ for Lost S5 on blu-ray... that's asking too much of their fans.

just so you guys know, even though not all of us will have blu ray, the videos and sh!t from the dvd will be available to us eventually, someone will rip it
