Doc Martin - S7
Speaking of, I did a UK order.Finished up a couple series, with Trollied S7, A Place To Call Home S6, and 'Til Death. Took advantage of the Brits' love of cheap complete DVD sets with Death in Paradise and One Foot in the Grave. And got my hard copies of the last couple seasons of Call The Midwife, since it doesn't look like Blu-rays are coming.
However, I'll wait a couple weeks to order Doc Martin S9, to see if the price comes down on release week.
Discovering all those dirt cheap UK complete series sets of several series I dropped serious coin to get State Side somewhat annoyed me - but I got over it by ordering a bunch of series that've never been released here. I still do that (and am still sometimes annoyed - especially if the UK got a complete series and it was stalled in the US). I'm far more apt to pick up a never-before-seen UK series than a US one simply because of those low complete series prices - often the same or less cost than single seasons of a US show over here. I've found lots of really good shows that way.
I'll wait on Doc Martin S8 and S9 for prices to come down to my sweet spot (for these short UK series that's usually in the $10 range for the US releases).
I started importing the R2 versions of Doc Martin with S6, because Acorn screwed up the US versions of the episodes by seemingly not applying pitch correction when they did the NTSC slowdown. Everybody sounded like they were on 'ludes to me. After that, I just went R2 with the rest of the series because I wasn't taking the chance again.
Same thing happened with Red Dwarf. RDX was uncorrected on the US version, so I went R2 for everything after.
I've not noticed any audio/pitch issues with Doc Martin. Does this affect all of the US releases? That could be why. I also didn't notice anything about Red Dwarf X. I didn't much care for that "season" so haven't purchased past it.
I don't know.
Maybe they did another pressing and fixed it. Because I would've bought it on release day. Maybe it bugged me more. Because I'm used to NTSC slowdown with pitch correction. Pretty much every major British show gets that now. But those two releases were from early on in the fad.
I was beginning to think it didn't exist, but this morning it suddenly appeared at Walmart:
It was at my local store too, albeit I didn't get it.
