3.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant series. Poorly produced UK dvd release., 1 Jan. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Heartland - The Complete Second Series [DVD] [2008] (DVD)
This is a fantastic series from Canada. It follows a farm ranch in the Rocky Mountains called Heartland which is dedicated to rescuing and rehabilitating troubled horses, and the lives of the people who live there. Think of an up to date Black Beauty / Follyfoot type of series for all the family.
This is shown in Canada peak time sunday evenings on CBC and is huge. It is already on season 5 there.

It has finally been released on dvd in this country. The Canadian region 1 dvd release is very classy with all singing and dancing menus,in a big fold out cardboard pack, however this UK region 2 release is very cheap and cheerful low budget with several mistakes and no episode titles whatsoever, just a frame from each episode and an episode number.
This is very annoying, especially on disc 5 because-

EPISODES 17 AND 18 ARE BACK TO FRONT!!!

This ruins the big build to the season finale, so watch 18 first, then 17.
Also, on the bonus features- THE SERIES IS CALLED HEARTLAND.... Not HEARTLANDS -which they spelled wrong 10 times.

All in all, however , I do recommend this series. I am totally hooked. This is one of the best shows on television. Do not think of it as a throw away kids show. It is well worth watching.

100% Agree with you that the UK release of the DVDs is badly distributed. Very unhappy with the cheaply packaged and produced dvd, not sure who is to blame ...4Media?
I originally purchased the seasons over the years as they were released straight from amazon Canada! (shipped to the UK)
But since moving house and having a different DVD player I was unable to watch the region 1 Canada discs (which are definitely worth the money as they are very well made) so I had to buy the region 2 DVD instead... wish I had seen this review before watching the last disc!
Also, I completely agree that even though the UK DVD versions are rubbish, it is still definitely worth watching.

I am Italian, I love the series, but since only the first season is available on DVD in Italy, I thought to buy UK DVDs. However I think the package absolutely do not worth the costs, too much expensive!! They do not even have subtitles. I am very disappointed and don't know if buy it or not.
