This is a fantastic deal. I got them for my birthday earlier this year at something like $25 per volume. The lush costumes and sets look glorious on Blu-Ray.

What are the differences between what was shown here on PBS and the UK series?

I really liked Season 1. Season 2 was just ok. I stopped watching quickly into Season 3, it just got too cheesy Soap Opera for me.

@bloodypenguin: Are you a time traveller? Season 3 doesn't start until January 6, 2013. Or at least here in the U.S. I expect that the UK has already seen some or all of itl.

@wilfbrim: PBS often recuts episodes and generally loses parts of the show in order to meet time requirements. The original intended episode lengths and contents are the UK Cut, which is generally what you buy on physical disc.

"What, what is a 'week-end'?"

@chronosquall14's comment about the costumes looking glorious on Blu-Ray sold me on the deal: my first Blu-Ray purchase ever!

I noticed that the DVD set is six disks and the Blu-Ray set is five. Can Blu-Rays hold more data than DVDs? If so, I didn't know that!

@neuropsychosocial: Yes. DVD=6GB. BluRay 25 or 50GB. The HD data is much larger than the SD data, but the container is much bigger, so fewer discs.

In for three. Time to get my aunt and grandma into the show. And of course I needed my own copy.
