    thats Fair, and If i was in the same postion, I would probley have the same answer, at the end of the day, do you really care? Of course you dont, and why should you? at the end of the day, you have all your seasons and Boxs sets and everything is ok and fine and just dleayed a ickle bit, however over here, just seems like some mad stuff is going on and it feels a bit unfiar to be honset

      WRTWORTHY, nobody's saying you don't have the right to be frustrated -- simply that you're not being productive about it at all.

      Write a letter to whoever distributes the R2 releases; that's the only way to make sure that your opinion is heard by someone who has the slightest influence over the decision.

        Perfect advice. I think that now makes it that just about everyone on theses forums has tried to give sound advice on this thread. Will it be listened to, I wonder?

        Let's call this one closed?

          Ok, so I'm from Austria, and because I like the german dubbed versions I kinda rely on the german release, and there where many things that went wrong over here, more than in England:

          1.) YOU got the superior Special Edition of "The Gathering" on DVD, while in Germany, until now only the old version was released (and I don't think this will ever change).

          2.) We got a GREAT cover for "The Gathering", just follow this link

          3.) When there was a problem with the effect shots in "And the Sky full of stars" (all scenes with CGI looked kinda weird because they didn't crop the images and simply converted them to 16:9), German Fans complained... to no effect. Englisch fans complained... and Warner reacted. For 2 weeks after Warner England agreed to an exchange, it wasn't even sure if german fans would also get fixed DVD's, because Warner Germany hoped that no one over here would care. If the englisch fans wouldn't have reacted that strongly, nothing would have changed, no matter how many german fans would have spoken out on that matter.

          EDIT: One mistake I completely forgot:
          4.) The 4th season had the absolutely great title "Die Befreiung von Proxima 3" (The Liberation of Proxima 3), since that was the german title for the episode "No surrender, no retreat"./EDIT

          What I want to point out is: Yes, some things went wrong with the englisch releases, but EVEN MORE things went wrong over here. But do I accuse JMS of anything? Am I constantly bitching around about this stuff? HELL NO! JMS cannot be held responsible for whatever mistakes Warner makes with their DVD releases. He may be sympathetic with us, but there isn't really anything he can do.

          Furthermore: We live in a free world. And unlike the german fans who usually are in need of the german dubbed version of the show, englisch fans have NO DISADVANTAGES when they choose to buy the R1-release.

          I write this to make clear that there are many people out there who sympathize with you and the issues that you raise, but who just don't agree with your assumptions and accusations. Who are, even with all the mistakes and the long waiting, really happy that Warner releases the DVD's in their home country. I also want to show you that there are fans out there who actually get treated much worse than the ones living in England. And I want to make sure that you understand that not everybody who does not support your accusations does so because he lives in wonderwonderland where everyone is just so happy and everything is fine, at least when it comes to B5 (an assessment that I really find rather offensive, since the B5-community is really known for sticking together, no matter if they are living in the US, the UK, France, Germany, Australia, wherever...), but that this is rather simply due to differing opinions.

          Note: Not everyone that doesn't agree with you is an egoistic a**hole...

            <<but given that he probably doesn't want to bite, nibble or gnarl on the hand that's feeding him millions of dollars to produce a B5 film right now>>

            As I said in my earlier post...he doesn't need to piss off WB in ANY WAY right now. Cut and dry.
            Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.
