Correct, the Blu-Ray version does not included the 2-3 minutes of extra footage that the DVD set does.

lmao I just now realized I said "without" I meant to say "with".

This one's a tough choice, the DVD set has the extended episodes, the Blu-ray set is better quality but is missing the extra content.

Do these sets usually go on sale around black Friday? I'd rather not part with the funds right now.

Losing 2-3 minutes per episode alone is a deal killer to me and outweighs the increased picture quality. Supposedly some commentaries or other extras are missing too but I don't know how many.

I've heard this is because for some reason only the shorter broadcast episodes exist in film format so they can be scanned to HD, but the unedited episodes are only on lower resolution formats. That doesn't make any sense to me, but that's what I heard. If that's true, then if seamless branching can work, they should've allowed BD viewers to select an option to watch the extended versions and let the video quality drop to what's available during the lower resolution extended scenes.

I dislike using extended here because the DVD versions are not really extended but simply complete. The BD episodes should be called cut or edited versions. I'll stick with the unedited DVDs over the edited BDs.

This deal is too expensive for incomplete/edited material. I also laugh how the OP didn't bother to mention or link to the $10 GC everyone qualifies for in the deal. The OP is either not very familiar with current deals there or not willing to put in much effort.

just as an aside:
Hollywood Reporter asked over 2,800 industry people - including 779 actors, 365 producers and 268 directors - what their one favourite show was and, funnily enough, Friends came up top.
