Brett, please see my review on the TV Series DVD: http://fhc.soopergrape.com/index.php?topic=135.0

I explain a bit of what to expect, and how to get it so you can watch it in Region 1 viewing areas.  :exactly

I will say if you go the purchasing route, expect to spend about $35 to get the dvds, and pay almost as much to get it shipped to North America.  When I bought them, it was my biggest flub of ebay purchasing because I didn't read the fine print correctly. :doh  However, I will say, it was the best thing I ever did to get my own copy. :) If you truly love the series, nothing less than stellar quality and being able to hold it and display it will do.

Well let's just say, I was going to do my own review on it, and I was prepared to take out as much hate on it as possible, but when I watched it on youtube, I was stunned. Mainly because I had the lowest of my low expectations for it, and it blew them right out of the water.

Thanks for the link.

Yes, have you heard of the Nostalgia Critic? I was going to do my review in that style, video review. And I was going to review it with my buddy.

Granted, I'm not anywhere near as funny as the Nostalgia Critic, though I'm renaming my show "The Unlikely Duo" and reviewing with my buddy to invite some arguements and make it more interesting. What do you think of that title? I'm terrible with titles.

I guess that will work.  Why "Unlikely" though?

I've been wondering the same thing.

Honestly, I don't know. We're different in so many ways, except we both love movies. He's one of th biggest guys in my school, and I'm one of the smallest for example. That's probably why I'm naming it "Unlikey"

Speaking of the episodes being released on DVD, I just read on wikipedia (and found back up for this information through google http://groups.yahoo.com/group/watershipdown/message/14984 Someone here mentioned that they had seen the episode) that there was an episode titled "Dandelion's Big Story" released in the box set in Great Britain.

Since it isn't available anywhere here, is there someway that I could see this extra episode (if it exists, I may have misunderstood what wikipedia and the link said)? Nothing comes up on yotube relating to it.

There is no such episode, I'm afraid. There is description of its plot on the box of Volume 10, but on DVD we have episode called "Bigwig's Way" instead. I doubt that there is any way we could watch "Dandelion's Big Story". I wonder, if they even created any part of it, before they decided to make a new plot with Bigwig...

Yup, typo, big mistake on the home video division as that episode was never created as intended but nobody bothered to update the dvd packaging.
