They have cleaned up the episodes so it is much better quality to purchase them on DVD rather then to simple "Tape" them. The Aired TV Episodes in the first season were somewhat hazy they have done MUCH to correct this in the DVD's.
It does not have commentary and Deleted Scenes and all the other stuff you watch once if ever,
For the price its worth it, the show itself is amazing and worth a try, it really gets alot better in season two, but thats not to take away from season one which has its moments and will easily hook most viewers
"Traders" appeals on so many levels - drama, comedy, romance, intrigue, suspense. But how can a show about a bunch of people in banking, stock trading, investment, and finance be exciting? I don't know, but this show surely is! Whether they are at their computer monitors on the trading floor tracking the ticker or in the boardroom handling the fate of unsuspecting others or on location assessing the value of some investment, these characters are intriguing, addictive, appealing, and believable. Some are young upstarts; some are old-timers with lots of experience; some are in the "game" for the thrill; some are in it for the money.
Just watch the show a few times and you get an idea of what "Doing a Marty" means. Then there's the invisible rival McGrath -- a character who never appears but always gets (or sends) the dreaded Grim Reaper fax. This show is different -- even the theme song by Lou Natale sucks you in.
When I gave a co-worker a few episodes I had taped off CBC, he came back the the next day with "More!" He had watched all the episodes in a single night, unable to put the show aside. Yes, "Traders" is THAT good.
The full run of this show deserves to be on DVD. It deserves extra features to explain how some of the episodes came to be written. Much of the activity came from real life. The writers used "moles" to ferret out some interesting material. Real-life traders were willing to share their scares and victories. And some of it is pretty scary!
But it is doubtful the entire series will be released on DVD. Alliance Atlantis has ceased responding to requests for such a release. In the past, the company responded with a "no plans at this time" reply.Read more ›
When the powers that be decided to release the remaining seasons, I'll be first in line.
I've already seen all the episodes on TV a couple of times each, but still wanted to own this series on DVD. I sure hope they get around to releasing the remaining 4 seasons on DVD. I want them all!
The mid-nineties 'edgy' hand-held camera work takes a bit of getting used to, but it is certainly worth the effort.
Although this is not the kind of show I would usually watch, I'm eager to see more and hope that further seasons will be released on DVD in the near future.

It was a pretty good show 20 years ago when it was broadcast. And now it hasn't lost it's appeal. The only thing is that the technology shown is ancient but the story lines are... Read morePublished 15 months ago by James W. Kenny
Really good TV drama. Why are there not more seasons on DVD? Characters were complex. Acting was superb. So much grittier than later Canadian TV.Published on Dec 4 2011 by k
This is a pretty original idea for a TV series - and largely succeeds in what it sets out to do. That's to say, it's both pretty plausible and at the same time entertaining. Read morePublished on Sept. 5 2010 by H. L. Mason
