... the first 10 seasons of SVU and then was disappointed at not having the rest
Verified purchase
I had collected the first 10 seasons of SVU and then was disappointed at not having the rest. It’s just not been released in the U.K. to keep up my collection I have eventually gave in and got the rest on European release. I was worried. Firstly that it wouldn’t play- but they do because we are the same region (region 2), so even if your DVD/Blu-ray player is locked to other regions these discs will play, and secondly about the language issues, some seasons are automatically in English on the menu, other seasons it is very easy to work out where the menu is and change the language to English, without any knowledge of the default language. The only difference is the title text (“Law and Order Special Victims Unit” that starts each show) is in the foreign language. This season isnt one that automatically plays in English but can be played in English audio when switched on the main menu (the text does remain non English see pics). Overall still happy to have this in whatever language as long as it plays in the U.K. as it completes my collection. Just a shame it has never been released after season 10 in the U.K.

Best cop show from America’s
Verified purchase
I only discovered this programme on Prime which is available from season 14 on all of which I have watched. Highly addictive and so good I bought this season and will buy previous ones. Stories can be harrowing but never predictable and well written with characters changing in this one you will instantly accept them. The best American cop show I have ever seen. This season is as high standard as the others.

Great. I bought this several years ago but while it was in English, Netherlands sub titles couldn't be removed. Very off putting so I bought this one on English. I have Series 1 to 21 and have watched them several times.

I love this programme so much i asked my husband to buy the complete series from 1 to 15. He dident realise there was another write up saying it was from the Netherlands but i read it and it said it was in English so i didnt mind (after all you don't watch the packaging )!! We had great difficulty in getting it to load on the English section and it was only by mistake i thought i would watch the Netherlands part and it actually does play in English with subtitles which you just turn off. So when you turn it on you will see french and Netherlands, tap on Netherlands and enjoy!! Hope this helps and happy watching!

As always this does not disappoint. One of my favourites. Only downside my copy had option to click on Francais or Netherlands. The latter was fine. In English but when watching on portable DVD player iwhich resumes from last play it kept reverting to French language. Got around this eventually by clicking on audio. Otherwise thoroughly enjoyed the series. Would highly recommend it.

Don't panic, this is in English!

I thought I'd made a big mistake in buying this dvd when I tried to play it and the only options were French and Netherlands. But then I read one of the other reviews - if you click on Netherlands, then turn off the subtitles, you have the original series. Many thanks to that reviewer! I love this series. I was a bit worried about the change of one of the main characters, but it's actually rejuvenated the series. I like the new characters and the stories are better than ever. Brilliant!

Addictive! I am currently working my way through all the series and this was just as good as all the others. Just wish Stabler would return then I'd be completely happy.
