I'm with emanon!
always up for some shameless amazon uk plugging!
Had both since november, both are great, cant wait for the 3rd season!

Also the packaging is better from the uk. u'll get it in under a week.

and its about the same price as u pay going down to your local store and buying it?

Order your copy today  big grin www.amazon.co.uk

was that blatant enough for u?

...so even if ti did not work on my normal DVD player would it still work on my PS2 (no mod chip)?

I just want to be double sure before I got and buy anything.

U know why they all work?

Because they are exactly the same disc set, just different packaging.
Put your aussie bought copies in your computer and install PowerDVD, from PowerDVD check the region on the disc and it should display as Region2 and Region4.

also the uk copies have the australian copyright message on them.

For those that care, its because Australia and Europe both use the PAL tv standard, why manufacture a completely different disc? Actually u will find quite a few Australian DVDs are also region2 (not all tho)

Really? Cool
If they are so similar why does it take so long for them to release the Australian DVD's? Why can't they just put them out now?

slightly off topic for a sec guys, i have a nokia 3310 cellphone and im using a picture of bender as my screensaver and the futurama theme as my ringtone, just wondering if any of u aussie   :)futurama fans  smile  would like me to send them to your phones (if you have a nokia thats compatible mind you) i can only send a few though because even though im made of money, its like losing a little piece of me each time!   big grin

I dont know the answer to that one.

realistically Futurama was never a big hit here in australia, might have something to do with that maybe? P
rehaps they wanna play some more episodes before they release them?
What about syndication laws? Prehaps Channel 7's rerun period (like they'd ever to reruns) has to run out first, similar to how CN had to play all of Season1 before the S1 dvds were slated for release in the US?

Frankly I dont care, I'll keep ordering from amazon uk, coz I cant wait it out here!

Emanon I just emailed u my mobile, that'd be cool if u could send me that tone!

thanks again (I'll have to find one to send to u in return)

@Carb
I know for a fact that there are plenty of Futurama fans in WA, and Im sure that they'd love to get their hands on a copy of Season2 early, so if they dont work for u, Im sure someone would love to buy them off u!
