    The only one I have is a Chinese travel DVD my dad got when he was in China. I dislike PAL speed-up and don't have a region-free player. There just aren't that many non-R1 discs I want to justify it.

    I've got only one in my collection, that's the Region 0 disc of the Twin Peaks premiere episode. I found that one on eBay about three years ago.
