I just realised that I bought the wrong set!! Should have bought the Region 1 set that has every episode of Buck! Season 1&2!

Thank god I bought the R2 set second hand! Won't be losing much money when I sell this...

Sound no - usually it is encoded with the same audio track across the board - unless they reduce the bit-rate....
PAL is slightly better in quality compared to NTSC - but only if the PAL print is not taken from a NTSC master.
R1 of Buck rogers is cheap though and has the whole show - is it the same as the R2 or is it like the R4 with only the first season?

My 1300th post!!!

I must get out more and meet the chickens in the yard.....

There is nothing wrong with region 2! Sometimes they have more than one language in the subtitles section, but other than that the video is in PAL instead of NTSC.
Look at the 10th anniversary of The Shawshank Redemption... the region 2 not only has an extra bonus disc, it has DTS an an awesome package!!!

Hi guys,
Last week I bought a second hand copy of Buck Rogers Season 1 R2. When I told a good friend about it, he says that Region 2 are generally no good. Am I missing anything on the Region 1 copy?

I couldn't see any problems with my copy. Almost brand new, looks like hardly watched.

Any comments on Region 2 DVD's? I normally buy Region 1 only because I like the packaging better than my local Region 4.
