Yay finally! But unfortunately I'm sure they won't be available on region 2 for a very long time, non of the seasons are :(

So many of the fans have that problem. Still at least it's coming which is more than I expected to happen so soon.

Well, there are the French region 2 releases.. but I take it you too want English region 2 releases? Can't you buy a region free DVD-player there (that also can handle NTSC and PAL) so you can watch the region 1 releases?

Re: Wheee!
Is the French version dubbed?

Yeah I've been thinking of buying a region free player for a while, it would make things much easier :)

Re: Wheee!
Yup, dubbed. From what I heard, I think one can choose to have the original audio tracks ie English, but that description text etc like "The Center - sublevel X" would still be in French..

So yeah, a much nicer thing to get the region 1 releases. I just started collecting the region 1 releases myself. Only thing to watch out for is customs fees. But with you [Norway] not being part of EU, I'm not sure if you can get away from it [by ordering within the EU, like from amazon.co.uk] ? DVD-players have dropped nicely in prices lately too :)

Re: Wheee!
I have bought dvd box sets form amazon before and we do get customs fees, but sometimes it's worth it because the dvds are much cheaper then they would have been buying them in Norway.

I've also noticed that the exstras on the dvds often is much nicer then the region 2 ones. I think I have to put a free region player on my Christmas wish list lol ;)
