    Hi Everyone,

    I am looking to start buying these on DVD but I am abit confused. I have done a search already on the forum but couldnt find something that answered my question fully but I apologise If someone else has asked this.

    I dont mind which region I buy as long as I get all the episodes that have been released so far including the pilot. My confusion is with the region 1 box sets really.

    There seems to be one where you can get all 23 episodes of the first series but there is also a deluxe box set with 3 discs and there seems to be a couple of other 3 disk sets available too. Are these all diferent episodes on all the dvds or are the 3 disk sets just the 6 disc set released in 2 parts.

    Can any CSI fans advise me on which set(s) to buy

    Thanks for your help in advance

    Sam

    As far as i know,the only place to get the complete first series is region 1,the r2 versions were released in two stages-first half on 3 discs and the second followed.You can also pre order the complete second series (r1)coming out september (i think?)

    Hi Sam,

    "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" is released in the USA and UK, in two boxed-sets per season, with each box containing just half a season.

    In the UK, Season 1, was released as:-
    - Set 1 (Episodes 1-12)
    - Set 2 (Episodes 13-23)

    As far as I know, Season 1 is not available as a complete six-disc DVD set, from anywhere in the world. However, some internet companies may offer you the opportunity to purchase the whole season together, at a slightly reduced price, rather than letting you buy both sets separately.

    Also, be aware, that the UK Season 1 release has had the superb The Who opening theme "Who Are You?" removed, due to contractual reasons. As such, it has been replaced by some quite terrible plink-plink synthesiser theme instead.

    You may, therefore, want to wait and buy the Region 4 (Australian) ir Region 1 (USA/Canada) versions instead, which should all be intact, and have the original theme restored.

    Oh, and despite rumours, Season 1 was never filmed in widescreen. Only Seasons 2 onwards, were.

    Pooch

    Thanks for all your help guys I think I understand now.

    I hate to go against Pooch here too but I definitely saw the Region One 6 disc box set and it said it includes all 23 episodes of the first series.

    I think I am gonna go for this one and ignore all the rest. Just gotta find the cheapest place.

    Definitely wont be reguion 2 though as I aint gonna miss out on the WHO.
    Thanks for that Pooch.

    :clap:
