I just managed to score a viewing copy of the series - all the eps in full (five eps, as shown in the US, not four eps as shown in the UK), but none of the DVD extras because it's not technically the DVD. It's also the full series, NOT the BBC America cut down version (I'm just now, for the first time, watching Kim broach the homosexuality question with Guy in ep 1). But it's not letterboxed, while the BBCA airing was. So I'm a little confused as to why the viewing copy is both better and worse than what was actually aired.
Do the extras justify spending roughly $20 on the proper DVD release? If it had been a crap release with no real extras, it wouldn't be a question. But is the commentary any good? And the extras on the real Cambridge spies - trite or useful?
