    I need some peoples opinion here as to which version should I go for, Candaian or UK version?

    I have only seen Season 1 DVD sold on UK and Canadian sites only, so I am wondering which is the better version?

    I buy all American-originated discs from the US. R2 ones are generally bad NTSC->PAL conversions or suffer from PAL speedup.
    I have the R1 Lexx discs. All are of good quality considering their source and age. I haven't seen the R2 discs.
    Having said that, the season 2 Lexx discs are rumoured to have commentary tracks, which the R1 discs do not.

    Just a clarification: Lexx season 1 was not released in the US. The Canadian version is made in Canada...

    I think I may go for the Canadian version
