Unhappy What the hell's happening with South Park (R2) dvds?

I caught a great episode of South Park, which I've only seen intermittently recently, at the weekend, and it renewed my urge to get hold of as many seasons on dvd as I can.

I've picked up the first 4 seasons, but what's the deal with getting hold of later box sets in the uk????

I thought season 5 was available, but if so that's been deleted . To add insult to injury, I notice that they seem to be churning them out on Region 1 up to season 7 or 8. (I would purchase R1 dvds if I could find a decent deal, but when postage etc is added on they usually end up around £30 for a set )

What's the deal? - I'd have thought that the makers would want to release these as soon as possible, particularly as the show is more topical than others around - seems like the R2 discs have been completely forgotten about.

The show isn't broadcast on terrestrial anymore and I suppose they don't think there's the demand. The R1 releases can normally be picked up fairly cheaply from the likes of secondspin, I got S7 for under £13 shipped recently

I think the earlier R2 seasons are OOP now - S1 is nowhere to be found, and S2 is only available from a small number places.

There were rights problems which I believe have now been sorted.

I also have seasons 1 to 4. Season 5 never got released. If they started up again. I would buy them.

It's on a par of annoyance with Malcolm in the Middle being released
