Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition
Network Distributing should release a special limited box set that comes with a small can of Spam.
i'm getting the vapors...
that's all then I'm moving to uk.
IIRC Network is owned by ITV PLC.
Also, it had some unfortunate edits. I sold it long ago and got the UK set from Sony about 10 years ago. Hopefully, this Network set will prove definitive.
Just get a player that converts 50 to 60, or a player that will pass-through the 50hz signal if your TV is compatible...
It’s true that above a certain weight, Network’s shipping charges take a steep hike. I recall facing this with their UFO Complete series that came with a hefty 600 page book.
Happily, there were some workable options. Amazon UK and Zavvi.com both carried the product at a higher unit price than Network itself, but at a fraction of the shipping charges. A little while later, Network also issued a version without the book at a much cheaper unit price and a vastly cheaper shipping charge, as it didn’t breach the weight threshold.
You might not necessarily end up in the poor house, but you may need to skip a couple of meals.
And Region Free if they lock it like most of their titles.
Might I suggest ...
Don't forget these go well with Spam
And after you get tired of that you can have this
When I was in high school, people would quote whole sketches from Monty Python verbatim. I hated those people.
It will have the edits. Monty Python chose themselves to cut out Jesus on the telephone poles.
They did? I remember seeing that on PBS, then suddenly it was cut on A&E and DVD. I assumed it was some TV executives choice.
Bit of a positive development, Paul Vanezis (of Doctor Who Restoration Team fame) is working on this release. https://twitter.com/PaulVanezis/status/1144014517569032199?s=19
That's great! The DWRT have performed close to miracles on Doctor Who episodes over the years.
Are you sure about that? I just looked on the SOTTAA website, and it doesn't seem to be apparent who ordered the telephone pole cut. All that is know is that it was cut prior to transmission.
Since the package is supposed to include All four series, along with unseen and excised footage, sketches and much more, I see no reason why this and other stuff that was cut prior to transmission (and for reruns/home video releases) won't be reinstated.
The only reason I can see for any cuts remaining would be if music clearances cannot be obtained for the ones that were cut for music licencing reasons.
At any rate, I'm sure this won't have some of the more ridiculous edits that were in the A&E set (such as the deleted line "masturbation" in the Summarise Proust sketch).
At any rate, I'm sure this won't have some of the more ridiculous edits that were in the A&E set (such as the deleted line "masturbation" in the Summarise Proust sketch). Jonathan Wood is overseeing this (the same fellow who oversaw, among other things, Network's Space: 1999 Series One release. It will be as complete/definitive as possible.
I think it was Terry Jones who mentioned it in an interview. They received mail on it and reconsidered it as a group. There's still a snippet of it in the fast forward version of the show at the end. I think the cut was made around the time of Life of Brian and they were getting flack. The cancer edit wasn't their choice. That was the BBC, and I think that one was done earlier. I might be wrong though. I'm working on decades old memories.
I think the first 2 seasons you can only do so much. I remember hearing that S1 and S2 were to be overwritten and the tapes reused.
Some quick googling turned up this
However, this notes that when sold to other markets, it was sent on 16mm
dunno. I do recall that the whole bit in a third series episode in the funeral parlour ("surely, you're not suggesting we eat her") got a lot of complaints and (like a certain grisly scene in I Claudius) was actually erased from the master tape. That bit only ever got recovered from a NTSC North American syndication tape years later.
