I wonder how accurate this is ?

Showing as £26.99 [free delivery] and region 0 for release 3rd December

It's just that they also have this 'regular' listing as well

I could never take Schwimmer seriously in that role at all. Not that he did a bad job, it's just.... he's Ross from Friends.

no one else bothered about there only being two episodes per disc ? don't get me wrong,its not a hassle to get up and swap discs over,but with the event of 50gb discs i would have thought this kind of thing would have been long gone

Is a bit weird. Is the US set like that as well?

The Japanese HD-DVDs are also only 2 episodes per disc - although they were never available as a 'boxset'

Obviously disc 6 on the BR set must be extras? [I haven't opened mine yet as so far I've nothing to play it on ]

So standard 2 hour movie on each disc. nothing really that unusual.

Plus DTS MA and the Veteren video PIP commentaries on each episode which have a PCM track. Seems like quite a full disc to me.

Does this improve on the HDDVD set in terms of pic quality?

Totally worth it. It is my favourite Blu Ray purchase to date. Amazing value at the price.

I got mine on day of release at £45 ! Another reason why I am skipping on the BD release is I have only watched the DVD once. I can imagine the BD version on the shelf unwatched.

For £35 this has to be the blu ray bargain of the year imo.

So for the price of 2 BD's you get 10 hours of some of the best television ever made, with what is arguably the finest looking and sounding Blu Ray to date? And some very nice extras too. And a tin!

Buy buy buy!
