Top critical review

I've watched (and enjoyed) all of James May's Man Lab episodes on youtube, so when I received the DVD of the first season of Man Lab I was excited, expecting behind the scenes stuff, bloopers, etc. But no. Not only do you not get any 'extra' stuff, the episodes are actually edited (shortened) from the UK version. While I still enjoy the show's contents, it really detracts knowing there was stuff taken out that actually added to the episode. Plus, all episodes have the end music theme cut out (it's a part where James May's original version of the theme, which he composed, is re-done by a group or individual with different instruments--a fun part of the show). So, while the show itself is good, the DVD version is disappointing because of the edits. Don't know if Mr. May had anything to do with it, but hopefully it will be corrected in season II version.
