Season two seems more matte and of higher quality than season one.

Before anybody freaks out, the Blu-ray footage here is pretty noisy and messy due to the post-processing and compression used on the promo. It's not the full BR quality - don't panic yet!

I'm not overly excited for season 2. Though it too is easily a first day buy I would like to have it soon though
4K? Really? Why? 720P looks pretty good projected @ 120"!!! I haven't seen 1080P(projected), but I imagine it's GREAT!

Not bad. Would I be right in assuming that the UK release is identical to the US release?

It's region-free, but there are slight differences. Usually more language options, and the cover art has some UK-required symbols. Also, anything in SD (like the Reading Rainbow bonus) will be in PAL format. Generally, native US players won't play those segments.

Many who use amazon.co.uk as an alternate source have purchased an all-region blu-ray player, with built-in PAL-to-NTSC converter. The expense is typically more than recouped with one box set purchase, such as Inspector Morse (DVD, not Blu-Ray). Amazon US price: $350. Amazon UK price: $48.10 delivered.

All-region Blu-ray players with a built-in converter can be had for ~ $125.

Unless there's an incredibly good price somewhere that won't last a few days, I think I'll give it a week or so before buying. By then we should know if there are any authoring gaffes on this similar to what happened with the surround mastering on some S1 episodes.

Actually, this isn't the case. Since UK players can play NTSC content, pretty much all worldwide region free BD releases from the big studios like Paramount and Warner have SD content in NTSC. No reason for them to re-encode in PAL and have different disc masters when people with European players can play the NTSC stuff fine.

Just checked one of the special features and it plays at 29.97 hz which is the NTSC standard.

The only times you need to worry about the PAL issue is if it is released in the UK by a smaller or UK/Europe-based company (who won't simultaneously be releasing a US version). Because they may just encode in PAL, but even then don't always. The only other time is if it is a European TV show, where it might be in 1080i50, a broadcast standard which most US players won't play. But with Paramount, Warner and Universal you generally don't have to worry, especially if they are releasing it simultaneously in Europe and the US.

In short, you should be fine playing the UK set on any US player.

I REALLY need this to drop by about $20. I haven't even gotten through Season One, which I recently loaned to a friend at college. Combine that with almost $200 worth of Black Friday week purchases, and I can't afford this right now

I am temped to wait to buy this simply because the first season is around $50-60 now here in Canada so i could save a ton but the extended episode and interviews are kind of screwing that up. maybe i will wait when it comes to season 3-7 but this one is already on preorder. what is really going to tick me off is when the whole set comes out for $350 or less. been buying Twilight Zone a season at a time and only have the last 2 to go but they are expensive here - new are usually $80+ and the cheapest i have bought for are still around $50. saw that amazon now has the series set for under $200 . Should be a law against releasing the entire series cheaper than the combined total of the individual ones, especially when all the do is take the individual ones and just shrinkwrap them together.

Wouldn't see why not. The price won't likely drop to around that until the ads are leaked for that week.
