    I see that finally after a few years waiting the remaining seasons of Cheers are being released in the UK. Seasons 8 & 9 are out in a few days and 10 & 11 next month with also a complete series box set. I hope they don't have the problems that the R1 had with music in episodes being changed due to rights issues.

    I'll be buying these, one of the best shows ever.
    Do you know what music they changed? I wasn't aware of that.

    If you have a look at the reviews on Amazon . com for the R1 copies its mentioned plenty there. I'll switch my pc on and see if I can find them.

    For a split sec there I thought there was a Blu-Ray set coming :eek:

    My favourite TV show ever. Got Seasons 1-11 on R1 DVD.

    Love it :thumbsup:

    I think the R2 discs will be ok (hopefully), as other series that have had music replaced in R1 (such as Quantum Leap & Dungeons & Dragons) have kept their original music in the R2 discs.
    Hopefully Cheers will be another series where the UK discs are better than the R1 discs.

    I hope so, I'm going to wait until they are about £10 each, I did the same for season 1 - 7 and they all dropped in price eventually, Lol.

    If I remember right the problems with the music being edited did not occur on the DVD sets until the last few box sets.

    Here are a few comments that customers have made about season 10 DVD's.

    Season 9:-

    Season 11:-

    Just a few comments I have seen above.

    It sounds like what they did with the Friends DVD's, the latest Friends boxset features the longer cut of the episodes, where as earlier boxsets had the shorter cuts of the episodes.
