I am waiting for season one part 1 boxset to be released but I still bought this pilot episode DVD today to keep me going until then! As well as the Directors Cut of the pilot episode (it includes 'Leaving On A Jet Plane' and was the version shown on e4 in early January) the DVD also contains 23 minutes of special features. A word of warning, all of these special features (minus the Episode 2 Preview)are included on the season 1 part 1 boxset, but for someone like me whom is waiting for the region 2 release then it's a great preview of what is to come from the DVD set. Special Features are:
'Showmance' Episode 2 Preview (13min54s)
Dance Boot Camp Featurette (3min08s)
Deconstructing 'Glee' with Ryan Murphy (2min44s)
What Is Glee? (0:47s)
Rachel - On My Own: Full Length Audition (3min04s)
Mercedes - Respect: Full Length Audition (0:52s)
The only negative point I could have about this DVD is that the featurettes are REALLY short. They're great but could have been fleshed out a bit more. Loved the extended auditions and while the episode 2 preview isn't necessarily needed it's still a nice addition. If you can't wait for the boxset, like me, than skip Heat magazine for 2 weeks and spend the money on this DVD instead!
