Who's getting the R2 Season 4(.0) DVD set?

As most of you probably know, the R2 Season 4 DVD set is coming out on the 6th of October. I'm just curious: Which of you guys will be picking it up when it's released?

Personally, I'll say I'm VERY tempted EVEN THOUGH it's not the entire 4th season (contrary to what it says on the box...) but only the episodes through "Revelations". I've seen each episode from season 4 only once so far, and I'm really eager to see them again.

At 25 £ it's not exactly a bargain (you can get the other season in their entirety for the same price or less), but it's also still affordable .

So what about you?

Oops. I voted 'Yes' before seeing the R2 part. So let's pretend I said 'No'. But if I lived where you do I would buy it. So 'Yes'. Theoretically.

I probably will do eventually, but I have all of Season 4 recorded on my Sky+ still, which I'm 8/10 way through rewatching at the moment.
So I'll hold off buying this for the mo, and probably wait till the price goes down a bit

Yes, I didn't tape the first half and my husband missed quite a few episodes, so we'll need to get caught up for the final half.

I probably will, assuming it comes out here in NZ and they won't wait for the second half to make a complete season four set, just like they did with season two.

Otherwise I'll buy the full set as normal.

Re: Who's getting the R2 Season 4(.0) DVD set?

Yeah, I deffo will - normally I'd wait for the R1 due to the lack of extras in general on the R2s, but this time as I don't have sky one (curse you Virgin Media!!) I've been unable to record and watch at my leisure, so this will tide me over 'til it comes out stateside.

Hmmm, I'm gonna have to say I'm not sure yet. I suspect I can hold out for a complete season set next year since the first 10 episodes are still fresh in my mind.

No way. It'll be chipmunked to hell and the extras won't be nearly as good as the R1 release.

I take it the R2 set of all season 4 will come out way before R1 again. I'll just wait. I don't understand what 'chipmunked' means and I never watch the extras since they're always utter guff packaged up to make the buyer think they're getting something special.

Re. Hermiod:
Chipmunked? What does that mean? Never heard that expression.

Personally, I don't really care about extras. As long as the episodes are there in good quality, I'm happy.

The term "chipmunked" refers to the effect of the NTSC to PAL transfer which causes a slight but very noticeable increase in the pitch of everyone's voices, the music etc. In effect, everyone sounds like Alvin and the Chipmunks, hence the term.

It becomes very noticeable if you are used to the US releases. Thankfully you don't get this with HD releases - the Region B Blu-Ray release of Heroes was fine (though that's mainly because Universal just used the same discs as the Region A release).

It obviously isn't noticeable.

Have you heard the US releases ? It is extremely noticeable once you get used to those, to the point of being unwatchable.

Re: Who's getting the R2 Season 4(.0) DVD set?

Interesting. I'd never heard of that before. I'll also honestly admit that I've never noticed a difference.

I'm surprised though that the pitch would be higher. The PAL / NTSC thing (or 50 vs. 60 Hz) in video games always meant that PAL releases would run somewhat more slowly. Hence I would have expected it to lower rather than higher. But then I suppose it's a different issue.
