Many current DVD players sold in North America will play PAL discs as well, and convert the PAL signal to NTSC for your viewing pleasure. Also, computers will play PAL and NTSC discs rather nicely as well, so if you can't get your DVD player to do it, your computer should do it. As long as the disc is region free (which I am guessing that it is), you should not have any problems.

I ordered it on Monday, and my £ is now in ABC's paws. If the timing resembles my recent T-shirt order, I'll ask Mary whether she has a likely E.T.A. today, she'll reply saying she's rushed off her feet, next Monday I'll get a shipping confirmation, with delivery on the Wednesday.

I'm not going to hassle Mary this time :)

Thanks for making me feel better. I might just give it a whirl but I'll need to buy a new DVD player. Dammit! It's WORTH it!! :D

Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

I just loaded the DVD up in my computer and took a few screencaps. http://shortbusdegenerates.com/Maresnes ... reenshots/

Video quality is good. As has been mentioned before, it's not anamorphic, so there's the black bars on the top and bottom of the picture. The sound is stereo, and sounds CD quality.
