Superb series, lousy DVD realease (again) !!!,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Dead Zone - Season 1 [DVD] (DVD)This is a superb show produced by the late Michael Piller, there is no argument about that. In the States this was treated with a flawed DVD release by Lions Gate Entertainment, resulting in many faulty sets which are, to this day, at least partially incompatible with many players. So my hopes were up when I heard about Paramount releasing it in the UK, but they managed to really screw this one up after all. There is no (NO!) extra material on this set while the code 1 pendant offers a whole lot of, and the picture quality is recognisably inferior to the US version. The cover of the DVD box is also ridiculous compared to the overseas release. So you basically got two choices: Risk the whole thing with the Lions Gate US version (if you own a codefree player, of course!) and maybe get a halfway working copy, or buy a bare bones but at least working version from Paramount in the UK. Man, life is so great!
