    I'm going to start getting into the South Park full sesason sets. Here's my question.

    Are there any differences between the Warner Brothers version and the Paramount version? Which ones should I buy?

    Thanks! [​IMG]

    PS

    Anyone willing to give up their Unaired Pilot DVD? [​IMG]

    No difference. Paramount took over distribution now that Viacom owns Comedy Central. The sets are exactly the same as when WB was distributing.

    Pretty much what Will said, but there is one small difference and that's the studio logos on the Season One and Season Two sets. If you want the spines to look consistent on your shelf, go with the Paramount releases.

    Yeah, I knew about the spines. And I figured it would look better with Paramount. Thanks for clearing things up!

    And for some reason, I noted that the Paramount first season box has a lighter gray package than the black one WB put out.

    Paramount raised the retail price from $40 to $50 on all sets. If you can find the Warner versions of the first 2 seasons, they'd probably be cheaper.

    Also the Canadian versions by Paramount have Biligual packaging, unlike the WB

    ^Only for Season 3 actually. Season 4 was untouched, which is very odd.
