Darn. Wish I'd done my homework before purchasing season 1 on Blu-ray. I've bought many BD's from Amazon UK with no issue, but I always make sure they're truly region-free. But when it says "Region Free" right in the title, I assumed it was okay. Won't play on my PS3 / Panasonic plasma (not sure what component is preventing playback)
