after looking at the region 2 (uk) version of the 3 disc set on and then looking at the region 1 (usa) version on it seems there is a difference in the running time.

REGION 1 = 15hours 42mins
REGION 2 = 14hours 39mins

this doesn't look good for us here in the uk with region 2 because it appears the orignial episodes with 1-2 minutes extra from the original NBC network version will not be included.

the only option is to wait an extra month for the region 1 set to come out with everything on it. does anyone have any further info on if this is correct.

The difference in running time is due to the NTSC/PAL difference, for example "Austin Powers - International Man of Mystery" R1/NTSC edition is 100 minutes, the R2/PAL edition is 91 minutes, NTSC runs at 29.97 FPS with 525 lines/frame, PAL runs at 25 FPS with 625 lines/frame.

Or in simpler terms, PAL speeds up 4% the NTSC speed witch in turn makes it run for 4% less time.

15hrs 42mins less 4% comes to 15hours which is still 20mins short of the UK runing time!

any more ideas guys?

Point is that UK will get the same stuff as everyone else, just not the extra gifts.
