I took a chance with buying this box set as it was region 1. Glad I did as it plays on my standard DVD player. It completes my collection of the kung fu series. It brings back great memories of my child hood when I used to watch the series. The only complaint I have is the box set which was sent to me was damaged. ie. Plastic casing inside box was broke. I sent it back and eventually I got a replacement. But it cost me about £6.49p. Which I have not been given back as yet. Great box set but poor customer service.
