This is £54 (+31.75 postage) at Tesco.com instead of the rrp of £75!
54 + 31.75 = 85.75
not that much of a bargain
typo - postage is £1.75 so it is a bargin at only circa £55!
R2 Cut... R4 Uncut... hmmm does that change your mind?
Managed to get mine for just under £50 which was nice, but those of the perks of getting 25% discount from someone i
I know !
The cuts did not bother me at all. Edits and cuts have never really been an issue for me, I guess I am just too easy to please.
Cuts? What Cuts? I thought the DVD releases where uncut, hence the 15 Certificate.
Dead Mans Party is cut to remove Hotwiring a Car (Giles) and some Violence. R4 is uncut.
Really? I'm pretty sure that the hot wire scene is in mine - I assume you mean when Giles drops his keys and wires the citroen?
As for violence which bits? The spade in the head was pretty violent, and thats in.
The BBFC notes the Cuts as:
To obtain this category cuts of 0m 8s were required. The cuts were Compulsory.
Two cuts - one for violence and one for imitable technique - required in order to attain a category '12' in accordance with BBFC guidelines.
The Technique is the Hotwiring. Where did you buy yours? R2?
Yep, R2. Got it from Tesco online, because Lady Lichtenstien wanted the clubcard points.
Maybe the violence has been cut - 8s wouldn't be that obvious, but I'm sure that the hotwiring is in...
Yes the hotwiring is definitely in, and that episode, as Ulric points out, is pretty violent.
Also Jenz my DVD is rated 15 so I am sure nothing will have been cut.
Ian (and everyone else),
I don't know of the Season 3 episodes you say, have or have not been cut for the DVD version.
However, the reason the DVD is classified as "15" (in the UK), is because in the case of boxed-sets or DVD's that contain multiple episodes/parts/movies, the overall certificate will be whatever the most controversial episode is rated. So, whilst the DVD as a set is a "15", the particular episodes you are talking about may still have been edited, to gain the original "12" certificate. And Fox may well have simply asked the BBFC to classify the DVD version, using the exact same versions approved for home video, and not bothered submitting a totally uncensored edition of the contentious episodes mentioned previously.
Then again, they may have submitted uncut versions, and the BBFC may still have asked for cuts to be made, but allowed the hotwiring scene in, because the set, as a whole, is classified as a "15", and is technically not able to be purchased by under-15's.
Therefore, if you want totally uncut "Buffy", then you may have to get the R4 editions, or wait until R1 catches up.
Hope this helps you all,
Isn't it cool that the BBFC seem to think it is OK to show 15 year olds how to hotwire when they aren't even old enough to drive, thereby helping a potential joyrider and indirectly a potential killer. Yet they aren't allowed to watch someone shagging, or indeed old enough to do such themselves?!?
Mine (well my wifes birhtday prezzie) cost £49.93 for the R4 from www.ezydvd.com.au inc P&P according to my trusty egg card
Thanks for the info, I suppose that teaches me to buy R2 DVD's.
Mental note - do not buy region 2 DVD's, ever
My R2 version has the hotwire scene cut a bit.
You see Giles bend down and pull the wires, you see him about to put them together and then there is a cut. You can see the cut quite clearly as Giles suddenly changes position.
You can see him about to hotwire and the result. you just dont see the doing.
