    Season 6 was a MOD DVD in Region 1. I paid $40 for mine new five years ago. May not be available new anymore. I got mine with Amazon.

    You're correct - it's France indeed.

    S6 had a weird history. Some people paid $40 for the burned MOD discs. Then some of us paid something like $8 for a pressed set through Amazon in late 2016.

    Now it does appear to be OOP entirely.

    It sometimes shows up as used, which can be a risk depending on its history. I found it used in December, but it is not a cheap set used usually. I saw it in December and got it for a price I could live with and I got lucky with a pressed set that works. If you’re looking, keep an eye on that page and you might find one for a price you are ok with.

    How about AMAZING STORIES? Released in Germany, though on a crippled blu ray.

    That is odd. Maybe that and Season 7 plus the Hitchcock Hour will get the proper release in Region 1 in the not too distant future.

    Might be a reference to the SD blu ray release. There are a few of those released in Europe that way.

    I wonder how they will handle the 5 episodes of Iron Horse which Sony didn't do remastered transfers on.

    The final litmus test of "no confidence" for ViacomCBS tv shows, is if they discontinue the region1 american dvd season sets for long running shows like NCIS. (No idea if NCIS is popular anywhere else outside of america).

    I got all of the seasons of Cybill from England. Did that ever see a release here?

    It's nice that at least one country seems to have a significant enough population who are interested in their HD television releases actually being in HD.

    I noticed that Season 9 of the Hawaii Five-0 reboot has been announced for March. That'll, technically, get that show up to a "complete series" released on BD outside of the US (since season 10 is still in it's first broadcast run). The US abandoned it on BD after season 3. The BD releases of this series from then forward are from Germany or Japan only.
