Purchased from Amazon.de - as a cost-saving exercise. Late last year, I watched a few odd episodes on German TV and was hooked. I took the plunge and glad I did so. Perhaps, not always the case, but the savings made in this instance were considerable - even with the delivery charge - and makes one wonder why such a variation in cost? Delivery time was excellent, arrived within 5 days from placing order.
This has turned out to be everything I expected and more. Saw the original film many years ago so was a wee bit disorientated with Disc 1/1 - a year later into the original SG story - but soon makes perfect sense. The boxed set is unusual in that each case contains the seasons in a stacked case so care will be needed in use. Languages provided for are: Season 1 Disk 1-3 English, Deutsch/German and Castellano. Season 1 Disk 4 English, Deutsch/German, French, Italian and Castellano.
DJ continues to be his annoying self, but soon grows on you as does the rest of the 'new original cast.' Initial SFX are very good and seem to get better as the series progress. Good story-lines, good acting and easy to see why it has such a following. At the price paid, this is certainly value for money with the added bonus of no sodding adverts. ;-)
