Any chance of having this on DVD? Has it been released in any region?
It might be coming. One episode was on a bonus disc that just came with some dvd (Gunga Din I think).
I want the original British version of the show that aired on Comedy Central on DVD. Is that out at all yet?
I'd like both versions of the show, the original British version, since Clive was such a hoot, and the US version, since many of the same regular cast members and guests were on it as well.
I received an ep of the US version of it as a bonus disk with my Night Court set.
I am also hoping that the powers that be would also be inclined to release the Drew Carey show on DVD as well.
Doh. Yes, it came with Night Court. Don't know what I was thinking. :b
If anyone wants to part with their bonus disc I would love you!
I'd love a release of the British show. Pity they don't make them any more, especially as the Comedy Store players are still going strong (if their annual one-off performance at the Globe Theatre is anything to go by).
I'd say a region 1 release of the British version is very unlikely (unless as a "best of" disc that concentrates, ironically, on the American improvisers).
Unfortunately, I feel a region 2 PAL release is also unlikely, as interest in the series (and Clive) seems to have waned in the UK. All they ever got in the past (which is more than the US has had) were two VHS tapes: a "best of" and a tape with three episodes on it (including the BAFTA-winning one). I don't think either sold particularly well, but that was the mid-90s, so I don't think the video companies should use that as a guide.
