    In practice, I wouldn't be surprised at all if only regions 1 and 2 were used extensively as intended by the dvd patent holders and mpaa.

    I'm tempted on this package as well however Time-Life has a habit of sending you more and more above and beyond what you originally ordered which can be frustrating until you return what you don't want. Having said that if they just stayed in the Dallas lane and kept sending seasons beyond season six all the way to the end of the series I could live with that. Yes it would be expensive.

    Hopefully they'll do that-- I don't think it'd be right for Time-Life to just do 6 seasons' worth.

    Honestly, I'd have preferred for this initial release to go through season 8, ending with Bobby's "death." It feels like a nice cut-off point, if they don't go any further. But if they keep going, I'll keep buying.

    I', actually surprised they didn't get to that point either. But maybe they felt a lot of people would drop off then. As much as I hated the "dream" resolution, I gotta say one you got past that first 10 minutes, the season was stellar. One of the best years they had in a while. Once Victoria Principal left, though, the show was never the same.

    I don't understand why you need to pay Time Life a fortune for 8 seasons, when you can have the whole series, on single sided DVDs + the movies collection, for far less (even if you include the most expensive shipping option on Amazon UK):

    https://www.amazon.co.uk/Dallas-Complete-Collection-1-14-Movies/dp/B007N0IKKM/ref=sr_1_1?crid=3VB22Q3II9HGO&keywords=dallas+complete+dvd+box+set&qid=1569421020&sprefix=dallas+comple%2Caps%2C173&sr=8-1

    The DVDs play on R1 players no problem. It will be at your door in less than a week....

    The count of 105 discs appears to be consistent with splitting up each double-side flipper disc into corresponding two single-sided discs. IIRC, the original american version had 50 double-sided flipper discs, except for the movies and final season sets.

    One very good reason for many North American collectors, Pal speedup. If it's a show I really love and will watch a lot, I don't want to hear the change in the actors voices. I have a few American shows from PAL sources, but only ones that aren't available in Region 1.

    Or perhaps someone isn’t region free.

    Is this true given the UK format is PAL?

    Yes, just like the Warner R1 discs work on R2 players, those R2 Warner discs work on R1 players. I'm yet to find a Warner DVD that's failed to work on any of my systems.
