Hi, the MITM DVDs finally came out in Australia today and purchased the complete series from a well known and respected store chain. Like in the UK, the DVDs are released by fab films, so I assume they are the same transfer. I got home and put season 4 in my player and noticed that the episodes have FOX WIDESCREEN at the beginning, and the TV PG ratings logo in the upper left (when commercial breaks would have finished). Are the UK releases like this, or is the store selling a pirated copy?
They're real. Freemantle have just used the American 16:9 NTSC episodes as sources, on top of that it looks like they're the exact episodes that are sold & used in syndication (hence the FOX Widescreen & TV Rating in the top left hand corner).
