I have not seen this information passed on to those of us in region 1,(hell I don't even know if most people know what a region is) if you have a stand alone dvd in the US it is probably a region 1 dvd player, however if you have a dvd attached to your computer then it contains no region codes and can play any region. You can also get your stand alone dvd player adjusted so that it will play region 1 and region 2 dvds, the bad news is that I know they are doing this in Britain, but I have no idea if it is done in the US or where.

For those of us who wanted the Crusade tapes NOW and not maybe in the future, as I know you know they are available but only in PAL format. If anyone is going to upgrade their vcr I highly recommend the Samsung SV5000W, world wide vcr, it lists for about $450. It plays all sorts of formats (PAL NTSC SECAM) and relays all this to your NTSC or PAL or SECAM tv. I have been collecting the Crusade tapes now only a few more to go and I will have the complete set.

Also, when I pulled Cheryl's info, I had forgotten that she is connected to some BABYLON 5 news. Here it is: Greg Funk, BABYLON 5 and X-FILES make-up artist, along with Jason Mattews of Stan Winston Studios recently worked on a new horror film called STOP IT, YOU'RE KILLING ME. The film's co-executive producer is Cheryl Duran, the editor and publisher of THE MONSTER NEWS and the author of the soon to be released THE MONSTER CLUB.COM GUIDE TO HORROR.
