First I hated it, then I grudgingly admitted it was funny in a couple of places, now Im addicted! What with the series not even being announced for release in the States Ive come to the conclusion that I may have to..ulp... buy a region 2 disc ie the whole series on DVD. The reason for the speed is that I think the best price is going to be the DVDStreet 15% off which ends today. So anyone that has some or all of these please leave your comments as to how good/bad (quality wise) and if they are worth 16-17 per disc.

I thankyou.

Not bad value for your money, but crap DVDs. The quality is only slightly above what you would expect from a VHS tape. Cheaper than buying the VHS though.

Even if you don't decide in time, don't worry; Blackstar are currently selling the DVDs at 56 per series, which is pretty much what you'd be paying from DVDStreet. So don't go rushing into buying them just because the offer ends today. Plus, if you hold out a while, it'll only be a matter of weeks before DVDStreet has another 20% off anyway, most likely. In the meantime you could sit yourself down and write a load of reviews for DVDStreet and get building up those loyalty points; last time they had a 20% off sale, I got the first series of South Park for 3 per disc that way.

I agree with FastShow on the picture quality, and sorry to say the extras are rather crappy also, series 4 and 5 has the exact same extras on all 6 DVD...

But it's friends, and it's DVD so it's a must have anyway

I just see myself replacing my R2 discs if there is a superior R1 release in the future... hmmmm (I'm replacing my VHS tapes right now) damn my friends addiction is expensive ehehe
