Only later series were made in HD IIRC

so best to buy this set then and use a bluray player that upscales.

Thanks Tigg just ordered, I love this series and this is a steal at this price.

no so bonus features? also a few reviews warm of duplicate seasons in box too. I may cancel but English language is on by default as one review complained of changing language per episode to French.

Honestly not sure what to say about the bonus feature side of things as according to the item page it says there is additional content as follows:

Additional content:
Making of
Video edge actors
actors Audio commentary and team
Gallery
Interviews
The magic secrets
Bloopers
Team Passage at Comic Con 'Paris 2011
Storyboard
DVD-Rom Content

The other strange thing is I've just looked at the UK set to try and compare it to the French set and according to Amazon UK the UK set has a run time of 2795 minutes and has 8 hours of extras although I don't know if the 8 hours of extras are included in the run time. The Amazon France set has a run time of 2899 minutes according to Amazon France so no idea what the difference is.

I'm so sorry I can't be of more help but I guess the only other thing I should point out just in case you've never ordered a foreign edition of a DVD/Blu-Ray (and please excuse me if I'm stating the obvious) but all the covers will be in French...something that doesn't bother me personally as long as the actual DVD/Blu-Ray plays in English but I know it does bother some people.

Must admit I really liked the look of the Grimoire edition as thought it looked quite smart for want of a better term but seeing as I already have the UK set so really can't justify buying it

Oh mentioning the UK set if you're really unsure about the French set the cheapest I can find the UK set for at the moment is £36 @ zoom.co.uk using code SIGNUP10 or £33.93 plus postage (which will depend on where you live) @ Xtra-Vision

As I say though sorry I can't be of more help but unfortunately I don't actually own the French version of the set.

Oh sorry one other thing....you were asking about a Blu-Ray edition and I've had a look and the only seasons I can find on Blu-Ray at the moment are Seasons 4 and 5 and haven't come across a complete 1-5 Blu-Ray set

You are most welcome....hope you enjoy it and that you're happy with it when it arrives...mind you any probs just contact Amazon France...not sure if you've ordered from them before but you can contact them using either French or English...had to contact them once ages ago and after trying desperately to put together an email in French which I suspect didn't really say anything that I intended it to say thanks to the help of Google Translate I apologised to the poor person that had to try and translate the translation and got a lovely reply back in perfect English saying that it was no problem at all if I wanted to contact them in English....doh!!!!

so this set has extras anyone got the delivery? got two sets coming.

I will try to get confirmation later today, others must have had this delivered already?

Not necessarily as it's being delivered from France so takes a bit longer than Amazon UK deliveries...received the various DVD sets I ordered from Amazon France on the 30th of December today so taking into account the holidays over New Year I don't think 6 days is that long for delivery
Edited by: "tiggerloveslife" 6th Jan

it was supposed to arrive to me on Friday they didn't now they say today. will unbox and send pics of the menu

Got them today

£22.50 per set I am very happy for the price. Going to sell the second set tonight.

The box is nice, better than the reviews state.

The discs are all picture printed except series 5 but those are just plain with black ink printed.

The extras are all in English even the comic con video though intro in French the cast answer in English

The episodes are in Full english audio the video this is where it gets strange some episodes have english video and audio others have french video and english audio but this doesnt spoil the enjoyment.

The menus though in French are easy to follow, it is easy to change the language in the menu or during playback.

I used an Xbox 360 to play these, first three series have OK video and well since series 4 and 5 were broadcast in HD you do notice a jump in video quality its like having the blu rays vs dvd without it being blu ray by comparison of the first three series.

Why do we not have this low price in the UK with this packaging? I like the foil dragon in gold and the book looking cover very fun.

If you can get past the french text on the box and the menus and some of the episodes then this is a must have for the price.

As of this morning this wasnt available from Amazon.FR direct as a result the price is now 40 euro + postage.
