    Let me see if I got this staright..........
    The R1 set of 24 has all 24 shows as they were broadcast in the U.S. and the R2 set has extra footage only shown in the UK? Is this footage significant? I know that the extras are the same, but what about A/V quality? I'm just wondering what other people did before I make my decision.

    Thanks,
    Derek

    First off let me say that I agree with the above - if the footage was really that significant, it would have been in the US version.

    That being said, there has been a lot of discussion about the significance of the missing footage by fans.

    I think the major point of discussion was that

    Nina found out Terri was pregnant before she shot her.


    Whether this dramatically alters the story or not is up to the viewer. I havent had a chance to see the UK version, so I can't really comment on it.

    I've seen the footage, it's really just filler. Get the R1 and don't have to worry about conversion artifacts and speedup

    On all my R2 dvd's I have never noticed artifacts or speedup. That being said, I got the R2 version because of the extra footage (most just filler), but I like the packaging better.

    Richard,

    Can you explain why the packaging is better than the R1?

    Also, are the pictures on the inside covers any different than the R1?

    Instead of one big Kiefer noggin, the UK packaging is much more attractive

    How about image quality? Are they the same?
