    Seasons 1 and 2 were released here in Australia today (16th March). They have been converted to region 4 so they will be playable on DVD players here. They retail around the $45 AUD mark.

    No word yet on when seasons 3, 4, and 5 will be released but we're looking at approximately at least a 6 month wait after they are released in the USA.

    Can I assume that even those ones don't come with any extras?.....

    Yep Carter you are right in your assumption. There are no extras on the DVDs here.

    Tooltime: $37 is lowest I know of, so you did get a bargain. I've seen them as high as $59.95.

    Yeh it was at JB- Hi Fi, easily the best store for DVD's. I actually went there to buy Home Improvement Season 3, and I saw MacGyver, and I couldn't believe how low priced it was.

    Compared to some DVD sets for other shows, I find that MacGyver is pretty reasonably priced here in Canada.....I think around 36-39 canadian where most other ones are around 45 or more.....

    I just checked and season 3 will be available in the near future. No date for it yet. It will be formatted for Region 4.

    Excellent news because I just finished watching Season 2 and I can't wait much longer. How long do you think it will be, within a month?

    they seem to be releasing them at the same time as the UK.. cos tho you're region 4 and we are region 2... we are basically on the same PAL system, where America (region 1) are on the NTSC system. I bought Captain James Cook from Aussie Amazon... and it played on the dvd player we have that's not unlocked and will only play R2/pal discs.

    yeah Australia and Europe basically have the same PAL. I've gotten DVDs that have both 2 and 4 on them. This comes in real handy especially when they release season sets in Europe before the USA.
