    Ah yes, the "alternative US audio soundtrack" for those in the US who couldn't understand the Glaswegian accents. I'm pretty sure the previous Region 1 edition of the DVD called this an 'English soundtrack', which turned everything into something more akin to Jean Brodie :-)

    I never knew that existed, I guess it's one step beyond burnt in subtitles...

    It's when I read things like that, I'm amazed they managed to even get past one season if The Wire.
