    Use the search function to find old posts on this, but I believe that anytime this question was asked before the answer was "not in R1 due to syndication rights issues".

    You're familiar with a "Big Mac Attack".....
    I'm now having a full-fledged West Wing Attack!
    I'm feeling the need for a WW DVD fix ..... in the form of Season 1, Season 2, as well as Season 3 boxed sets. (Probably shooting a little bit too high here, huh? I'm also putting in an order for Mary-Louise Parker, so she can act as my official "DVD Disc Changer & Getter Of Cool Beverages" while I'm planted in front of the boob-tube. Can she be had fairly reasonably do you suppose? [​IMG])
    Where's Region 1 West Wing Season 1??? [​IMG][​IMG]
    This renewed thirst for this great NBC-TV series hit me upon watching the November 13th episode. While not quite as good as the previous two entries (IMO), it still satisfies the WW fix.

    hence, bite the bullet and buy R2. and if you don't already have one, a multi-region player on which to play those lovely discs, and PAL-NTSC converter if necessary.
    one benefit to living in a region whose discs are generally inferior (in my case, R3) -- my Pioneer player was multi-region straight out of the box, my TV is multi-system. no problems at all [​IMG]
    now I'm just itching to get my hands on season 2 part 1 -- release date 7 April...

    That's incredibly weak. Surely even RIAA influenced executives with their heads in the sand can calculate profits on disc sales? There's no way they can make more off the Synd deals than they could selling season sets?

    R2, here I come.

    There's always a window with these syndication deals. It will be a few years though. The thing is, they can have DVDs and syndication. They would probably have to cut the syndication price a bit, but the DVDs should net more than enough to make up for it.
