And yeah, I'd do that, but the current DVD/TV/surround sound setup we have is my flatmates, and it's really good, minus the fact it's not multi-region. Although she's moving to England in November, so I'll be forced to buy one then! Woo!

I've also tried to play other-region DVD's on my computer, but windows tells me I can only change the region of my PC a certain amount of times... Eds - I'm sure you can tell me a way to hack this?

region unlocked dvd players are perfectly legal in Australia, and the $50 ones you buy from computer shops that also play divx mp4s etc are nearly always region free.

for lol windows dvd hax, umm check msn later.

Why? He wouldn't have had any say in it, as is the case with anybody who creates a show and then sells the rights to a TV company in order to get it made.

In a perfect world.

Channel Four own it and they sold the US rights to Granada.

Game over.

(Unless he got a specific clause written into his contract which said he'd get creative control over any future projects based on the format. Which I doubt. It was his first major show, he would've sold his Mum to get it made.)

In all honesty, respect was kinda dwindling for him when I heard he was doing a David Schwimmer film.

Mortgage payments aren't cheap. I don't begrudge the man who gave me some of the greatest viewing moments of my life. It's when THOSE moments are raped in the form of a US adaptation do I get a bit upset. Can I still wear a chocolate beanie and walk with my head held high?
This has put a bit of a black cloud above my day

Edgar speaks his mind (from AICN):

Quote:

The interesting part of that is, no-one has been in touch with me at all. Haven't deigned to get in contact. So my involvement is indeed very unclear.

P.S. I can confirm too, that Simon was never contacted either. I don't really want to get involved at all, but it infuriates me that they would a) never bother to get in touch but still b) splash me and Simon's names all over the trade announcements and infer that we're involved in the same way Ricky & Steve were with The Office.

Also, it's worth stressing that I will not be profiting from this reversion, nor do they have to get permission from me to make it.

One more thing...

I'm calling for everyone to refer to the U.S. version of Spaced as "McSpaced" from now on.

I can't think of a better distillation of the whole idea.

"McSpaced."

I'd never lose respect for actors who do shit films, it's a job, we've all had shit jobs.

I mean, look at Michael Caine...he himself admits that a huge percentage of his career is total bollocks but at the end of the day, well...he's Jack fucking Carter.

Nuff said.

lol, watched S1, E1,2, & 3 last night, loved it, particularly Brian, esp. the bit when Marcia asks where to put her coat @ the party and he jumps up and takes it.

Brian: It's from Vulva.
Tim: Who's Vulva?
Brian: An old friend of mine.
Tim: You've got a friend called Vulva? Who's called Vulva?
Brian: Her real name's Ian.
Tim: What do you mean, her real name's Ian?
Brian: She's non-gender-specific.
Tim: Oh what, you mean like a tranny?
Brian: [Smiles] More than that.
Tim: [Scoffs] What, a big fat tranny?

ROFL.

When Brian scans the invite for ages and then it flips to it and it just says: Come.
