1.0 out of 5 stars Inaccurate cover. No subtitles., 27 April 2012
This review is from: Dark Shadows: The Revival - The Complete Series [DVD] [NTSC] (DVD)
1 star rating is for the inaccurate advertising of this product not the actual content.

I purchased this new DVD release (30/4/12) as Amazon.co.uk state that this new UK release has English subtitles. There's even a picture available of the back of the case on the site, confirming this inaccuracy. If you're looking for subtitles, get ready to be disappointed. Even though the back of the actual case does indeed state that the DVD set contains English for the hearing impaired main feature subtitles, this is wrong.
THERE ARE NO SUBTITLES ON THIS DVD RELEASE! Mine arrived early this morning and I've just put it straight on, I was most disappointed to find that there are in fact no subtitles.
Another inaccuracy on the website is that this set is PAL region 2 when in fact it's actually NTSC region 0.

I was very disappointed to notice the lack of subtitles too. Then I played the DVD on my computer and was able to turn on the Closed Captions, which I think is the American way of having the subtitles for hard of hearing..? I couldn't find the same option on my tv, so I'll be watching this series once on the laptop and then giving it away. What a pity!!!

Hello. I am interested in purchasing the DVD from you. First of all, is it in Full Screen? The American DVD release is in a fake widescreen and the top and bottom of the picture is cropped off. DS fans in North America are angry that MGM put out the series in a fake widescreen, when it was actually filmed in the full screen 1:33 aspect ratio. I am writing from Canada. I hope to hear from either of you. Thank you, Tyson
