    The release date is listed as 11/07/2003 which obviously isn't right... do you think they mean the 7th November?

    Anyhow the supplements are revealed:

    Guess I'm gonna have to order this from the UK as WB has yet to even release Season 2 in the States. As far as I know they don't plan to, either. Dang it.

    NO!

    I'm in the UK and UK dates are Day-Month-Year. So the UK BBC SHOP (which is where the link points to) is listing a date of 11th July, which is wrong.

    They've changed it to 10/11/2003 now, which seems more likely - 10th November 2003.

    James, they never aired the Christmas special over here, but I've heard good things about it. They aired Season 2 a year or so ago and are just now airing Season 3. So far, Season 3 is amazing! I love how they focus on a character at a time and tie things together. These guys are fantastic!!!

    James,

    Actually, the BBC discs are fairly expensive over here. I know that THE YOUNG ONES retailed over here for around $50 and I'm pretty sure that I paid over $30 for the LEAGUE first series.

    I may go ahead and get the discs from the UK. I just got a region-free player that does PAL to NTSC conversion.

    The Christmas special was aired over here, on BBC America, around either Christmas 2001 or last year (bad memory, sorry). I had it on my Tivo for ages.

    I'm watching the third season now on BBCA and I'm really impressed. The show had kind of worn it's welcome out with me after two seasons (it seemeed to be getting kind of catchphrase-reliant) but this new season is quite different in tone and extremely well done.

    Hi Dave. Glad you are at least getting the chance to watch the series, even if BBC America don't seem to be releasing it onto DVD over there.

    You're my wife now, Dave....

    LOG never gets old for me. I was pleasantly surprised by the episode from last week. It centered on the guy with the neck brace who owns a bed and breakfast where his wife throws sex parties. A fairly minor character from S2, it was fun to see him get an entire episode to himself.
