I love this show and highly recommend it to pretty much everyone who has the travelling bug. I would have given it 5 stars based on the merits of the show alone...EXCEPT saying that this is "uncut" is misleading. In fact, the DVD producers will be "double-dipping" later in 2006.

It is important to note that they released a longer special edition of this show on DVD in the UK last week. So now there are actually 10 extended episodes of this show that are available as a three disc set everywhere else in the world except North America at this point in time.

The region one disc being released in North America in December 2005 only has 7 episodes (on two discs). They are planning to release this 10 episode version later in 2006.

If this doesn't faze you, and you need to get this NOW then I still think you'll enjoy the heck out of the 7 episode version.

However, if you can hold out for the 10 episode version (or buy the PAL version from Amazon UK), then I'd strongly advise you to do that instead.

Consider this fair warning!

I got tired of waiting for the long version so I went searching. Here's what I found out.. You can order the 10 episode 3-disk DVD from Amazon Canada. Your dollar is worth more and that compensates for the shipping. The original 7 episodes are enhanced with additional footage as well so it's like being on the wonderful journey with Ewan and Charlie for the first time. Enjoy.

As a novice motorcycle rider married to a life-long one, I know many of the ups and downs of travelling by motorcycle. This video shows it all - the joys, the trials, and let-downs. There are places where Ewan states his misgivings about situations they get into that echo my own when I've been in situations where I felt my skills weren't adequate. They both summarize it well at the end of the day when the challenges have been met and they are off the bikes until tomorrow. I doubt if many folks will travel like these two did, but this video serves to inspire people who wish to take a journey of a lifetime on a motorcycle.

Cool video. I never would have gone that far on a motorcycle!

Ewan and Charlie are my heros. Watched it when it aired on Bravo. Absolutely loved it. Missed a couple episodes. Considered buying the UK version, but elected to wait. Finally got the US copy. FINALLY got to see the segments I missed. I still love the movie myself, but unfortunately can't really watch it with my kids because of the slightly-more-than-occasional use of the F-word. The naked butts are tolerable, but the F-word screws it up for family viewing. Wish I could have bought a censored version. Never really thought much of it when I saw it on TV. I'm still giving it 5-Stars because it still a great story and video. Just not for kids.

Visit amazon.ca. Canada's zone 1 NTSC version is the extended 10-episode on 3-dvds. Don't have to buy the UK's PAL version.

This is the two-CD, 7-episode version.

The UK version is PAL-encoded with no region restrictions. PAL means it probably won't play in your normal DVD player.

There is an option if you want NTSC encoding and Region 1: buy it from canada. Amazon's .ca store has the 10-episode version, and the price is very reasonable (though about double this, once you pay for shipping).

Great to see this is finally going to be available in the US. only a year later since UK got it. hehe.

Keep in mind though that this is the 7 disc (7 episode) version.

The 10 disc version is becoming available to the UK on Dec 6th and of course the US will get it "at a later date".

I figure since I've waited this long a bit longer won't hurt if it means getting the full version. I'm guessing it will contain more of the US part of their Journey but also has a lot more extra footage. I purchased the video "Faster" when it first came out and now after I already own it I find that it was a "Demo" version with single disk, and now the version offered is a 2 disk full version with lots of extras. bummer. now I'll have two copies eventually.
