Why? When I was in the UK, their movies we behind release for us. But TV shows on DVD are ahead?

The A-Team came out on DVD in the UK before here and that errked me, but 24! 24! 24!

Its released now in the UK, and a buddy said if I order from Amazon.UK the DVD format will not work here.

What? Why? Who? ARGH!

Plan on pausing the DVD for five minutes every commercial break?

You could watch A&E on Mondays and see a complete episode. They just played the last episode of the season last Monday. Think it was like 12 hrs.

It might be FX or some other channel.

I'm not gonna jump down your throat too hard, but remember, it aired on fox. 24 episodes in all each season. Are you trying to tell me that the DVD includes enough bonus footage to make up for the recaps at the beginning, the preview at the end of each show and the 20 minutes of commercials?

Just like any TV show, a one hour episode is 42 minutes of programming. 42 minutes * 24 episodes = 1008 minutes / 60 minutes per hour = 16.8 hours.

This sucks.

So when is the premier of season 5?

Will season 5 be running before season 4 is even out?

Just another way for them to take more cash from us around XMas time.

They really need to release it more than a month before season 5, sheesh.

I like waiting for the DVD so I can watch it all in one go, but waiting for the DVDs to come out is killing me, might just watch season 5 on TV.

by putting it out a month before and no more, they've got you.

There are 4 seasons?!?!?! I remember watching season one, episodes 1-6, then trying my hardest to keep watching. I gave up.

The reason I don't watch it is because I see idiots that left other shows end up on 24 for half a season, like the skinny slut from third Watch.

torrents are the way to go. You need to force NTSC and not use PAL when you burn to DVD.
