I was very foolish i purchased the english dilbert dvd boxset, which has only 8 episodes and no special features. But this one has every episode ever, and alot of special features + an interview with scott adams (the creator). Also it must be noted this plays on all region 2 consoles even a ps2. so if you love the episodes that are never on tv go and purchase this dvd boxset

It will take you 2-3 episodes to get out of the "3-box cartoon" mode of Dilbert that we all know and love, and into the mind of the 25 minute episode, which strings a host of excellent Dilbert, Wally, Alice and PHB moments together into a host of great little adventures. A real grower, which you will come to love, and great value for money. Also, this is Region 0 coding, so it will play on all regions DVD players. Highly recommended.

Like others, I bought this with some trepidation as to whether it would work in the UK but I am pleased to confirm there are no problems. In fact I ripped it straight to my network storage unit from my PC and it is perfect. I bought the original rip-off Britain version with only 8 titles 10 years ago and paid more than I have paid for this, though this came all the way from the US! Now I have all 30 episodes and am very happy! The humour is quick and subtle and the episodes bear replaying as there are things you miss the first time round. Good entertainment to dip into, though I find it hard to get to the end of an episode and resist watching just one more.....! The order of episodes on the discs are weird (as they are on the UK version). If you compare the broadcast dates from TV.com there are a lot our of order and this does matter as although each are quite self-contained, there is an underlying direction to the overall story. I decided to sort them for playback based on their original to-air dates (assuming TV.com is right) and they seem to fit well played in this mode.

DILBERT - the most popular comic strip of the decade - is now on this 4 disc DVD set containing all the episodes from the now cancelled series.
With his signature turned-up tie, round glasses and buzz cut, Dilbert is already a pop culture phenomenon, providing an irreverent reference point for workers everywhere. Developed and produced by Emmy Award-winning writer/producer Larry Charles ("Seinfeld," "Mad About You"), DILBERT, the series, follows the "every man" as he copes with daily life at The Company. Daniel Stern ("The Wonder Years," Home Alone, City Slickers) stars as the voice of Dilbert, while Chris Elliot voices his roommate Dogbert, who views the entire world as existing for his personal entertainment. Joining Dilbert in the office are his fellow engineers: the no-nonsense, caffeinated Alice (Kathy Griffin) and selfish, slothful Wally. Guest voice talent includes Jason Alexander, Andy Dick, Eugene Levy, Jay Leno, Jerry Seinfeld, Stone Cold Steve Austin, Tom Green and more!
Please note that despite the listed product details showing this to be for Region 1 only, I have found that it will actually play on unmodded Region 2 players (including Playstation 2) without any problems at all.

Dilbert is amazing. This is a scientific fact. This box set contains both series (which was a pleasant surprise for me) and is well worth the money as I have got much joy from this. If you haven't seen dilbert on TV before and want to watch it you can find full episodes online. Though if you enjoy the depth of character and odd situations found in shows like "Family guy" or "American dad" and the and the real life back drop found in shows like "The IT crowd". Then you will probably enjoy this show. I feel it has a brilliant and uniquely refined and subtle humour to it that really isn't found in other shows. Younger viewers may not find it as gripping, while its not unsuitable for children, adults will appreciate it much more. Though I suppose this is clear if you first heard of dilbert as the newspaper cartoon.
