If you own any MM sets from Region 2, you may already own at least some of the above episodes, as the Region 1 and 2 sets are NOT synchronised. Better check... I read somewhere there were fewer MM episodes released in the US in order to keep the price of each set more affordable. If that was indeed the case, then it is a great shame... I would like to see those missing episodes released at some point in the US as well.Read more ›
First the big review.....These episodes are as wonderful as all the previous shows. The ability of the writers to keep up the quality is nothing short of amazing. What a track record. Whoa!
Now the boring message...these episodes were released on dvd in the UK in September 2008. The entire TEN EPISODES of that season were released as "The Sixth Collection" You can buy it from Amazon UK for about $70 including shipping. This USA release has only four of those episodes issued one year later at about $36.
The one catch here is the UK releases are on the region 2 PAL format which will not play on a lot of the USA region 1 dvd players. BUT you can buy a dvd player that will play the region 2 PAL format right here on Amazon. I did.
Series Note....John Nettles will be retiring at the end of 2010 with one final series of eight episodes.With the way Acorn chops up these programs into little three and four episode packages for the USA it will be 2012 before we get to see any of them.
John Nettles, the lead, settled into character with the very first show and is absolutely brilliant as the stern detective with a strong sense of justice, a good sense of humor. His love and affection for his family lights up his eyes during even the most difficult case. It is nice to see.
We have now bought many of the Midsomer series and will by them all. Can't recommend this series highly enough.
