Surely it must be ?

Also £46 from base.com (never heard of them)

Is this similar to the US box set ? I've been waiting for the region 1 to come down as the packaging is so sexy!!

Not all of it - amazon.co.uk/pro…tar

The first couple of seasons weren't done in widescreen so if they have just brought it over and put them in a new box then I imagine the quality and 4:3 nature of them to remain.
It is worth it if you've never seen any of it before, but if you already own all the seasons this isn't really a worth replacement yet.

No I don't think so. Most likely it is just the slimline boxes of each season packaged into one large box for presentation.

If you haven't seen it, it's the best tv drama ever imo. Certainly until about series 4 when it starts going downhill a bit (but still good).

a review from an amazon uk buyer:

When it comes to the quality of TV on offer, I have little complaints. … When it comes to the quality of TV on offer, I have little complaints. The West Wing is solid television and up there with some of the best light drama series around. Even if it never quite matches the heady heights of shows on offer from HBO (like The Wire or Deadwood), the show is remarkably consistent and very rarely is there an episode which disappoints.But let's talk about this box set. Simply a very poor effort all round.Firstly, the two opening seasons are in 4:3 aspect ratio, when the widescreen versions exist and have been made available on DVD in other regions. The widescreen versions are superior in picture quality and broadcast much better. I believe they were even aired in this country in widescreen.The third season onwards is widescreen, however the episodes are non-anamorphic, meaning a letterboxed fixed-sized widescreen image with black bars on the top and bottom. The picture quality is terrible, and the framing appears badly 'zoomed' (the credits for example appearing rather large, and the characters heads even being chopped off in some cases.Simply not good enough, and not worth the money.Any West Wing fans would be better off ordering the Region 1 set from American which contains fully anamorphic widescreen DVDs, with better picture quality. Most if not all DVD players these days support multi-region viewing (in fact I believe those DVDs are all-region anyway).




heard great things about this tv show, but personally have also been holding off getting this poor UK R2 boxset, (been under £50 quite a few times), really wanting the R1 US boxset, but it's so damn expensive for a DVD boxset, also it being anamorphic widescreen leads me to believe a Bluray HD boxset may be possible in the future...

The best television series ever made. I am actually watching it at the moment as I got this boxset for Christmas

I bought the slimline boxset last year when HMV were selling in for £50 (and i had a 10% student discount) and am just starting to watch the series again - its such an awesome show!! Really worth it!!!

I have seasons 1+2 of the old box - sets. I am realy waiting for the series to be released in the full aspect before I replace them.

Fantastic series. Although it goes downhill after season 3.

This is available over the web as well now, though you need to spend over £50 for free delivery.
