Thanks to a visitor, see comments below, I was told to my surprise War of the Worlds is also going to be released on region 2, in de UK, and very soon also! The first season is going to be released at the end of this month, April 30th, season 2 is scheduled for release a little over 2 month later, July 9, 2012. It has not yet been announced if this release has any kind of subtitles. Season 1 of the US release does have English subs unfortunately the UK release, at least the first season, does not have any subtitles. I had askes the question on the amazon forum and a customer confirmed to me that there aren't any subs.

Perhaps not familiar to everyone but indeed there also is a tv show called "War of the World" which dates back from 1988. The show lasted 2 seasons and during season 1 they had very good viewing ratings. Because of cast changes and different kind of storytelling the ratings of season 2 dropped very fast and it was cancelled at the end of season 2. Adrian Paul, whom we later also know as Duncan Macleod of the Highlander series, joins the cast in season 2. As far as I know never been released in Europe, only in North America. Season 1 does come with English subtitles, I'm not sure if season 2 has English subs. If anyone can tell me...please let me know so I can update the info. As mentioned above, it's a region 1 release.
