    With the imminent release of Season 2 in the UK, I was wondering if there was any chance of a R1 release.
    Season 1 was actually released first in the US, but there's no sign of a US release for the second season. As a Malata owner, I could pick up the UK version, but would go domestic if it was an option. I wonder if the first season sold at all over here.
    Any news one way or the other?

    I also hope that season two gets a R1 release. I love LOG and have enjoyed the well-produced season one disc on a number of occasions.

    I am a little miffed no R1 of series 2 has been announced yet since I myself own the R1 release and would appreciate some consistency.
    I think it'll hit R1 sooner rather then later, we'll see. I'll give it until the end of Nov for an R1 announcement, if nothing I will plump for the R2 and have someone send me a high rez scan of the US cover art whenever it be released (since BBC do infinitely superior artwork for their DVD releases in America)...
    One thing I can't see hitting R1 will be the live show of their tour from late last year, early this year. I attended the night of filming for a home video VHS and DVD release when I went. It was a hoot, one thing for LOG fans abroad to look into should they have the abilty to import PAL stuff. It's yet to have a date announced but I am guessing December.

    I was searching for info on the Region1 League of Gentleman Series 2 disc a few weeks ago and I came across a LoG site that said that the R1 version will be delayed until next year. The good news is that it will be a 2 disc set with lots of extras. If I find the website where I got the info I will post it here.

    George,
    If that's true, any way to find ouf it it will include the hour long christmas special? That was an absolute work of genius and I would not put it past BBC dishing out a superior product in the US.

    I found the info about the Region 1 release...
    Series 2 DVD for the US - the bad news and the good
    news
    People have been asking about availability of a Series
    2 DVD for the USA.
    Here's the response provided by the Gents' management
    compay, PBJ: http://www.pbjmgt.co.uk/
    We will not be making the League series 2 DVD a Region
    0 product as there is a staggered release pattern
    planned for the disc across the world so the version I
    am working on at the moment (what we call our 'core
    version') will be PAL regions 2 & 4.
    Our US office have expressed an interest in taking the
    DVD sometime next year. It will be a 2-disc set with a
    lot of bonus material on the second disc.
    I'm sorry it will not be commercially available in the
    USA at the same time as over here in the UK but I'm
    confident it will be available locally next year.
    Kindest regards,
    Ross McGinley
    Producer , DVD & Video

    Thanks, George.
    Looks like I might get Drury Lane to tide me over, and wait for R1.
    Unless someone from the UK owes me a present come Dec.... [​IMG]

    Darn. Still no sign of the R1 release for Series 2 of The League of Gentlemen. It must be because R1 folks aren't "local". :)

    George, the Xmas special is coming out in the UK in November.

    Wonder if this Xmas I may give in and pick up the R2 versions....

    I can't see why someone would want a R1 NTSC release of stuff that was originally filmed on PAL digital video.
