The season 6 UK DVD was released on monday, with a lot less fan fare than usual it has to be said, as Prison Break Season 2 released a week earlier still takes up most of Fox’s promotional power.
And while you could question why this is, “not up to 24’s usual standard” etc., the list of extras does still look impressive and could well be the best set we’ve ever had if documentaries “Inside The Writers Room” & “Opening With A Bang” can live up to the 90 minute making of seen on the Season 2 release.
From what I can tell the UK Region 2 release carries exactly the same list of extras as the U.S. release due in December will. I’ll update this post if there’s any significant developments on that, and i’ll have a full review up on the site once my copy arrives.

Why does the UK get an early release?
It’s simply the way it’s always been, U.S. gets it later because Fox use it as a way to promote the new season.
Seems like the US version usually has a few extras too, like a prequel or something while the UK version doesn’t. Does that sound right?
It’s true that in the past the U.S. version have had more extras, but starting with the Season 5 UK release they moved the DVD’s release back a month so that the UK release would have everything the US release had.
I was easily able to order this from amazon.co.uk on the day of release, and it arrived at my US mailbox a few days later. The DVD’s are PAL 16:9 coded for regions 2 and 4. If you have a region free DVD player you are good to go. If not, December is just around the corner 🙂
