    This is not a new release. Season 1 & 2 have been released on DVD since
    last year actually!

    Not really.

    It's only been released in Canada, and it's not a *complete* Seasons 1&2
    release, but only a "Best of Seasons 1 & 2" release. It has only 19 of the 43
    eps for those two seasons (or 20 out of 44, if you consider "Sandkings" to be
    two eps instead of one). More specifically, with respect to Season 1, it has
    only half of the eps (10/11 out of 21/22).

    Further, I believe it contains the cut Canadian/syndication versions, rather
    than the uncut Showtime versions. The US MGM release will be of the uncut
