They sell that bootleg on Amazon?
Amazon has thousands
of secondary market sellers these days, who all link their catalogues through Amazon's search facility. Any US citizen buying so-called "international" or "regionless" versions of TNG are buying illegal Asian bootlegs. (US versions are marked Region 1. UK versions are marked Region 2. Australasian versions are marked Region 4.)
Exactly, and my purchase was several years ago. I just didn't know any better. It was cheap, and the discs allow me to watch the series, but the packaging is enough to make me want to throw it through the window.
I have the proper releases of DS9, Voyager, and Enterprise, so TNG is my little red-headed stepchild. Appropriately, I often beat it and verbally abuse it.
You should see the list of the "Stars" of the show prominently displayed on the back of the box:
Joseph L. Scanlan
Patrick Stewart (Hey, they actually got one!)
I mean I know most of those names, but they certainly are not stars of the show.
Damn Asian bootlegging bastards!!!
