looking at the history, the show was released in 2009, which means it probably shot in 2008.

Red's first 4k camera didn't come out til around 2007/2008 and was not industry accepted right away.

so it was probably shot on 35mm film, as was standard for US television, and the studio would need to go back and scan the original film.
maybe later seasons were shot digitally, like West Wing (they had to switch from painted backdrops to photo backdrops after switching to digital cameras)

point is: maybe one day we'll have a bluray :\

I want to get it but DVD is 480p right? I remember streaming this online at like 720p/1080p recently. It would be going backwards watching it on DVD.

The version on Amazon Prime Video is much better looking than the DVD, so I would personally not buy this.

But either way it is a great show

What’s the significance of painted vs photo backdrops vis a vi the camera type used? Just curious to learn something new.

Bluray means 1080p, not 4k neccesarily.
