  1. Six episodes? - nice change than four, maybe the SIF DVD Poll worked :P

  2. I like the six episode change, but...wasn't the title changed to "Merry Christmas Wish"?...

  3. I like that fans' concerns about value for money is being addressed. With two extras, this release is a bit more tempting

  4. Fantastic. I wonder how they'll work the Mr Perkins segments in?

  5. Looks HIT finally listened to the fans about having more episodeson the UK dvds. I have the DVD in Aus, but I might get myself a copy :)
