    Finally on DVD, with all the special features about how the series would have continued had it not been for NBC and the strike. But, it is from the UK, Region 2:

    http://www.amazon.co.uk/Journeyman-The-Complete-Series-DVD/dp/B00A3VVJC4/

    I wonder if the special features were actually produced when the series ended, and shelved (along with the episodes themselves) until now.

    I want to hear the commentary track and watch the special features, but I'd rather buy a region 1 DVD set.

    Well truthfully I'd rather have it on BluRay, but since I already have a self-made collection of the show in 720p, I would buy the DVDs if they are released in the US simply to get the special features.

    Special Features:

    [*]FLASHING BACKWARDS - a comprehensive documentary about the making of "Journeyman" (75 mins)
    [/list]
    [*]THE BACK NINE - featurette that explores with cast and writers what might have happened on the series had it not been cancelled (20 mins)
    [/list]
    [*]PILOT COMMENTARY - with creator/executive producer, Kevin Falls, lead actor, Kevin McKidd and director/executive producer, Alex Graves

    [*]STILLS GALLERY

    [*]DELETED SCENES
    [/list]

    Really enjoyed this show when it aired. A Region 1 or Blu-ray (fat chance!) release would be very welcome.

    I'm really glad to see this one come out. It was one of my favorite series from the last decade. I was very surprised it wasn't picked up for a second season. With all the period music in it, I'm wondering if the original stuff is included or replacement music.

    I finally bit the bullet and ordered a Region 2 DVD set of JOURNEYMAN. It's too good a series for me to rely on just my off-air recordings from analog TV.

    I'm not usually one to recommend buying out-of-region, but this one doesn't look like it will ever be ported over to a US release. Indeed, based on this YouTube video from 2015, it is the music that's held up a release in the US.

    The set arrived within the past week, and I've checked into my options for watching it. I have one crappy DVD player that's had a region hack performed on it, so it plays OK on that. It's just a matter of hooking the thing up to the main TV for viewing.

    Meanwhile, the episodes also play fine on the computer using VLC, so that's a second option.

    As one would expect, the video is the full widescreen (16:9) ratio and looks pretty good for a DVD. But, alas for me, the episodes are time-sped for the PAL system, giving a bit of a chipmunky sound to some of the voices. But given that this is all we've got, I'll learn to live with it.

    The VLC player also has slowdown options, which might help with the PAL speedup.
