|West Wing, The-Season 6||R1|
Ok, this is where it gets ugly. In the past I have simply compared each season's Region 4 release with the equivalent release from the US, with the Region 4 box set often available well ahead of the box set in the US and similarly specified. Alas, since the free-to-air broadcast hiatus The West Wing has endured in Australia, this situation is now reversed. Making life even more miserable for the Region 4 shopper is the fact that while each of the seven seasons of The West Wing have been available in Region 1 individually for some time, they are now also available as a mega 45-disc box set (yes you read that right - 45 discs!) featuring the full series - and this is where the comparison swings in favour of the Region 1 version - comprehensively enough to label it a landslide victory in election terms.
Season Six in this box set is spread across six discs and features some bonus material of its own. There are commentary tracks for three episodes (King Corn, In God We Trust, and the season finale 2162 Votes), plus a featurette called CJ Cregg - From Press Secretary To Chief Of Staff which looks at the evolution of one of televisions most dynamic characters. The Region 4 set of Season Six on the other hand contains no extras of any description.
