Deadwood series 2 have been out for a while now over here. I don’t intend this to be a disparaging/mocking/gloating-type post, it’s just that I don’t get why DVDs of US TV shows (BuffytVS, West Wing, Deadwood and Stargate, to name a few) are out in the UK months before they’re out in the US. I know that one answer may be syndication revenues, but I was under the impression that DVD sales blew everything else away.
Oh and I only ordered my copy of Deadwood series 2 on Monday.
They didn’t include them with the West Wing boxsets either. Most annoying was the fact that one of the sets contained the insert card for the Region 1 set listing the extras.
Not as annoying as the region 2 season 1 of Hustle, in which they accidentally released initially with the US edits excluding a couple of scenes (although not the nudity in the first episode as one would expect).
