Amazon has charged me £42.68 but I'm factoring a customs charge into the headline figure

Fantastic show up there with Seinfeld and Curb. Huge influence on Ricky Gervais. American edition is a much more impressive edition than our feeble Region 2 version which is £74.99 on Amazon. So even if you get done by customs, the most this'll cost you is about £55.

Amazon blurb:

Product Description
Live on tape, from Hollywood, its The Larry Sanders Show


The Complete Series: 89 Original Episodes on 17 Discs


At long last, Garry Shandling s comedy series about the twisted inner workings of a late-night talk show, and its host, comes to DVD. All of it.


Larry Sanders (Garry Shandling) is a neurotic late-night talk show host flanked by Artie (Rip Torn), his caustic, foul-mouthed producer, and Hey Now Hank Kingsley (Jeffrey Tambor), his hopelessly insecure, ethically inept sidekick. Off-air it is all train wrecks and egos, but when the lights go down and the theme music kicks in, you get late-night Entertainment Inc. at its finest.


The Larry Sanders Show raised the bar for fearless, acerbic Hollywood satire. The innovative use of both video and film to distinguish on-air events from real-life happenings, displaying the jarring dynamic between the on-camera poise of Larry and his backstage neurosis, was brutally fascinating. And in the company of a patronizing, combative staff and a parade of A-list guests, more than game for putting their own celebrity in the crosshairs, you had a backstage pass to a Hollywood that was shockingly raw and hilarious.


Also starring Linda Doucett, Janeane Garofalo (24), Penny Johnson (24), Wallace Langham (CSI), Bob Odenkirk (Mr. Show, Breaking Bad), Jeremy Piven (Entourage), Mary Lynn Rajskub (24), Sarah Silverman (The Sarah Silverman Program), Scott Thompson (Kids In The Hall), and written and produced by Garry Shandling, Peter Tolan (Rescue Me) and Judd Apatow (Knocked Up), The Larry Sanders Show was the hippest TV show . . . probably ever. Late-night would never be the same again.

This is not a UK deal. It's a region 1 product DVD not playable on most UK DVD players and charged in dollars. This site is HotUKDeals. Voted cold and reported.

Yank crap

Unless you have a Region 1 DVD player, a multi-region player or one that has been modified to play region 1 discs - DO NOT BUY THIS PRODUCT. IT WON'T PLAY ON UK DVD Players.

Issue of Region 1 and Region 2 discs addressed in title and description. I think most people know the difference. I'd love to buy R2 version of this but it's a pale imitation and many people reading this will have probably bought their players after advice here referring to their multi region playability.

'Yank crap'. Nice one- you can stick to your 'Mind Your Language' and 'Love Your Neighbour' sets. I'm happy with the' Yank crap' that puts most of our TV to shame.

Hope deal useful to someone.

No it isn't. You don't post a warning that it won't play on the vast majority of DVD players in the UK.

There also remains the point that this site is Hot UK Deals. If you want to post this deal, post it somewhere else.

Still a good deal. Voted hot. Great series.

Thanks CJ. I'll assume complete ignorance in readers of this site if I post another deal and explain clearly the regional coding system of DVDs.

Assume you're equally vigilant for Dealextreme deals, etc in your monitoring. I've benefited from dozens of deals posted here that were posted from overseas.

Maybe you have to a fan of the show to see any merit in this one but as someone contemplating buying the UK release this was too good to ignore.

Yank crap


I'm guessing this is a joke. The family guy avatar would suggest so.

Dob66 thanks for the deal, I've actually been after it for quite a while now..

CannyJack - It's a deal site, if you want to nit pick, maybe you can do that somewhere else..

Good to see that people are keeping things in perspective in terms of there comments (_;). its still a good deal.

Good stuff and a nice price. Didn't realise it was 8 series. Pretty much everyone has a multiregion player so good all round. (Unless you're sucker enough to buy $ony)

Pretty much everyone doesn't - unless you're talking about resetting your computer DVD drive which you can only do so many times.

Staggering in its brilliance - a landmark comedy. Well spotted, and b*ll*cks to the 'UK' pedants.

You should probably tell people that they won't play in the majority of VHS players either (or the microwave or the dishwasher etc....)

This site is HotUKDeals.
If the site was named after where the deals come from rather than the nationality whom they might interest, this place would probably be called HotJerseyDeals.

In defence of those arguing that it wasn't clear about the region thing: People should remember that not everybody on here will be aware of regions, or have any knowledge of what it would mean if they were. Anybody used to just walking into a store and buying a DVD would not even look for regions, so the 'R1' in the title means absolutely nothing without clarification.

That's not justifying the way those comments are posted, of course, but the point is valid.

now 90 bucks! glad i ordered this bargain last night!! thanks again op been after this for a while :)

Look up your player, there's bound to be a hack. Just a simple code or something slightly more arcane. Companies don't make different models for different regions, it's the same model that they set for the region in question. My blu-ray player is multi-region for blu and dvd.

Even better deal...arrived today with no duties charged. Did mark it as gift for daughter (well, she'll inherit it...) and customs ignored value on label.

Packaging wise, it's no Seinfeld (now that's a lovely box set!) but great to have all the series and extras that don't come with UK set
