I love love love this show, so when I found out the first season had been released in the UK I was ecstatic. I grew up watching this and still find it funny and charming as I did years ago.

However, as for the dvd box set itself I am disappointed. The episodes don't seem to be in chronological order. For example the first episode of the series is called "King of the Hill" which is where we see the gang's first day back at school and Slater introduced as the new kid. Therefore that should be the first episode on the first disc, however, that episode is on the LAST disc and is number 15 out of a total of 16!! I find it ridiculous that the pilot episode is the second to last episode in the set. Instead of starting my rewatch of this classic series with the pilot episode I find I'm watching "Dancing To The Max" which while a great episode shouldn't be the first episode on the dvd. Maybe I'm nitpicking but when I purchase a tv show on dvd I like to watch the episodes in order.

Another downside is the actual dvd packaging, it is rather cheap looking and could be so much better. Also other than a stills gallery there is no special features. It would be nice to see some gag reels, behind the scenes, deleted scenes, etc. but this being an old show I can understand it being difficult to obtain that material for a dvd release.

My main disappointment still resides with the episode order on the discs. It seems there is confusion in terms of the correct episode order due to the conflicting air dates. However, if a little time was taken to find out the proper order this dvd set would be so much better and would receive a 5 star rating.

I do hope the rest of the seasons are released in the UK, there is nothing more annoying than not being able to complete a dvd collection. I also hope more care is taken into future releases.

I'm so happy this has finally been released in the UK! I loved this show in the late '80s / '90s and it's every bit as funny as I remember. With Zack's un-movable hair, Slater's fantastically cringe-worthy dance moves, the lovable mr Belding, the cheesy but hilarious storylines. Lots of nostalgic moments to be had, I just hope all the other seasons will be available soon :)

I am in my mid-20's and loved this show when it was first out. As with all childhood fads, I was worried I woudln't find this as funny but decided for the nostalgia to watch again.

I was wrong- I found it so funny that I am a fan all over again! Screech in particular has me howilng with laughter. I also have a giggle at some of the clothes, outfits and clunky, bulky technology they use like computers and mobile phones.

Is a must buy!

I discovered SBTB when I was in my mid teens and the show was in Series three I was immediately hooked and got around to watching all the series including the college years (very much underated).

Series one is very young by SBTB standards but rapidly through episodes of the first series the writers and actors rapidly grow and I find myself laughing and addicted all over again. I can't wait from the remaining series to be released

SBTB was the first teen comedy of its genre in the late 80's, often episodes in later series were copied by both Fresh Prince of Bel air and 90210 but these guys were the originals..

My family and I are big fans of this series and for years we waited for its release in region 2, just after I gave up and finally purchased the complete seasons including the college years in R1, it gets its region 2 release. I am delighted that it is finally available here in UK. This was a great series and one that many families will enjoy. I do hope that the rest of the seasons get their R 2 release. . I have not seen any difference between the region one and region 2 release. Season one and two are contained in 5 discs and for full listing of the episodes see my previous review on region 1.

It is delightful to watch and leaves one nostalgic of those carefree childhood days filled with innocent fun and pranks.

I started to watch this show after the series ended when they were re-runs on TV and I thought it was really funny. Now watching it again, it's still hilariously funny. Great show back to the good old days of innocent fun. It would of been nice to have backstage interviews, gag reels instead of just publicity photos.

Actually received all 5 seasons, kids love it. Blast from the past. Was delivered in 5 cases that looked like videos which was fortunate as a friendly post office worker had ripped the bag open to have a look,
