Well, I have the French set and it's definitely the unrated version of the pilot. So that's good. I think I'll go for the Swedish set once I can get some questions answered about it. Like the cover pictured at Amazon is in English, so is that accurate? Does that mean that the disc menus are English too? Is it 1080p/24? Questions, questions....

It's basically the French set without the isolated scores. 1080i. Lots of Scandinavian releases have English covers with details on back for each country.

Ah, so that's why this new Australian set is all the rage then. Thanks.

You’d be better off starting with the French releases Pilot and then going over to Episode 3 on the Aussie set. The PAL Speed-up is way too annoying to watch for an entire season. In the French/German 1080i/50 transfers (I bought both), it sounds like Erik Stoltz balls are in a metal vice (as does many of the male characters). The theme song is way too quick and hits the ear wrong being out half an octave. Been waiting for a 1080p24 set of Caprica for a long time. At least now the music sounds like Bear McCreary has meant it to be heard.

Having to watch Breaking Bad, Game of Thrones (and now House of the Dragon) and The Walking Dead with PAL Speed-up on Aussie cable broadcasts, and only then being able to enjoy them at the proper pitch and speed when you rewatch the show on Blu-Ray, one really appreciates Caprica finally getting a 1080p24 release.

FYI, Caprica 1080p24 appears to be available on US Amazon.

No doubt! I received the AUS set today and it is glorious. I am finally enjoying the show again. A few years ago, I managed to rip the French episodes to MKV's and convert them to 24. So at least I have the unrated pilot as an MKV. Thank (insert preferred deity here) for it!

Yeah, now that I'm used to the pilot being split in two, I'm totally fine with it. I have no need to watch the unrated version again just to see a little bit of extra CGI blood and a pair of tits, so as far as I'm concerned the only thing I really wish was on this set was the commentaries.

Otherwise, this is the way to go

Indeed. That's the only reason I am keeping the French set. I'll have those extras if I want to play them.

I've no idea and neither does the staff member in my local store who knows me. I contacted JB's head office as to why it was taken down and I still haven't heard back from them. This was about 2 months ago.

I am in the USA and I have the French and Australia sets. Before the Australian set was recently released, I had to convert the French episodes from PAL 25 fps to NTSC 23.976 fps for them to sound right on my old region-locked player. The Australian set is region-free and has no framerate issues. It took Universal long enough!
