    Anyone have any idea whether the UK version is being edited differently to the US version ?

    Also I've seen the soon to be released US aniversery edition (4 disk) selling for about £26. Play have the 3 disk version for £14

    I doubt they are different. I've seen the R2 and I recommend it.

    I just thought in this day and age that Brit TV was a lot more sensitive in what it showed in case it offended anyone. Prime example being the brilliant comedy series ' Love thy neighbour' - now considered racist.

    the one I've pre-ordered on R1 is the 4 disk-anniversary edition ??

    I wonder if it's worth the extra £12 approx.

    according to dvdcompare they're all 3 disc anniversary editions-maybe they missed one.
