All episodes are good, the 5 I have listed, are probably the best of the season.
*** A lot of people have mentioned the music contained in the US version of these DVDs. They are right when they say the music in the UK version is unedited. I never noticed this until I bought the UK version of Season 2. The last episode - M.I.A. comes complete with the uncut "Georgia On My Mind". My point is, that if you can wait for the UK DVDs to be released, then do so - They are much more authentic and well worth the wait for die-hard fans.
The transfer looks pretty good. The images are occasionally soft and there's dirt and debris in some of the transfers (some more than others)but on the whole acceptable. Audio is solid throughout the set. Image quality varies depending upon the amount of optical effects as well and those scenes tend to be on the softer side with more debris and dirt noticeable.
It was the worst of times--There are songs that have been replaced in this set (it is at least noted on the box) but not in all the episodes. For those where the music issue looms large I'd wait for the Region 2 discs in the UK.Read more ›
I, too, felt that the stories seemed a little flat and did not know why until I started reading about the missing music in these reviews. One of the complaints stood out because of the glaring mathematical error.
One of the reviewers said he heard that the music companies wanted $10,000 a song. The reviewer stated that if they sold as few as 10,000 DVDs, they'd only have to charge an extra dollar each - a price nearly every fan would be willing to pay. The error is that that assumes there is only ONE SONG per season worth buying. These aren't single episode DVDs, but DVD sets - a complete season. What if (as is more likely) it is a song (or two) per episode? That changes the final cost significantly.
Even so, it would come down to how many copies of the season sets they could sell. If the price went up by $5, it would make a bigger difference in how many people would be willing to buy them. On the other hand, if they are selling a quarter million sets for each season, then the reviewer's extra dollar per DVD is back in play and that little amount should not have been an issue.
My other take on this situation is that we are griping to the wrong people. I think we ought to complain to the music companies for being so greedy and stupid. It's counter-productive anyway. They should let the music go for a song. (Sorry, I couldn't help that one.) When people hear this great music, they are tempted to buy more CDs. The music companies are missing a huge advertising opportunity. D'oh!!!
I'm buying the DVD sets anyway. The stories are still great!
I would also reccomend waiting because of the music. The episodes is season 2&3 over here are not cut and contain all the original music most notabally in MIA where georgia on my mind is included!!!. I share the frustration of american fans and i was going to import from america as it was taking so long for the DVDs to come out over here, but changed my mind when i heard about the music glad I did!!!!
