    Well, nothing in life is absolute.

    I'm going for R1 because I feel both NTSC and film sources are best served by NTSC format discs. A difference in packaging was mentioned but I feel this is an irrelevance.

    Confucius may have a good point about the NTSC quality.

    However, for me personally the packaging is far from irrelevant, especially if you are going to purchase all seven (which will take up a lot of space on the shelf). It is not just a slight difference: the region 2 version is much much better! In fact I have american friends who are importing the European versions.

    Also, I believe the region 2 version will be out before the region 1.

    Hope this is some help.

    Well, each to their own over the packaging :)

    R1 is due March 26, R2 was originally due before (March 25 ?) but is now due April 1. Either way the date diference is/was small. It looks as though both regions will be getting one season every 2 months.

    It also seems as though this is one case where R2 could well be cheaper than R1:eek:. The lowest I've seen the R1 version is from A&B sound at C$160.79 incl s&h, around £71 - and of course one could well get stung by HMC&E. Lowest I've seen R2 is £69.99 from Movietyme.

    Was just on the DVD.co.uk site and I noticed that they are doing the region 2 version for £64.99.
