Does anybody know whether this is due for release on DVD anytime soon?
Well the CD is now available, so i'm keeping my fingers crossed for the DVD.
I'm sure it'll follow soon, just like the rest of the Comic strip presents.......series.
I'm sure they will, but the question is WHEN !!
Read recently that ALL the Comic Strip shows (C4 and BBC2) are being prepared for release!
"Mr. Jolley Lives Next Door" - Scatalogical genius!
Nice one...........looking forward to seeing these classic episodes.
Especially "Mr Jolly", "Fistfull....", "Gino" and "Bad News"
I'd love to see Bad News tour again. I saw tham many years ago in Bristol. One of the best live concerts I've attended.
Are they going to include the Famous Five episodes?
I've just been searching the net for DVD release info for all the Comic Strip stuff but can't find anything. If anyone spots any info at all then can they post a link on this thread.
Not really Comic Strip, but Play.com have "Filthy, Rich and Catflap" available for pre-order.
Can't comment on the show, as it's one of the few Mayall/Edmondson programmes I've never seen.
Just been watching more bad news again.
Anyone heard anything about the comic strip dvd release??
If there will ever be one that is
So many classic episodes I have on video
Nope, still heard nothing!
Although the two Bad News episodes are my favourites, I also enjoyed "Five go Mad", "Consuela", & "The Bullsh*tters". There was another Comic Strip one which was a mock episode of "The South Bank Show", but I forgot the title.
Bad News tour was excellent,as was most of the comic strip stuff.
It's been years since i've seen 5 go mad - but still remember Uncle Quentin and his industrial sized drum of vasoline.
It sounds cliched,but they certainly don't make em like that anymore.
Mr Jolly is my own fave Comic Strip (obvious really!!!) but nobody ever remembers that other classic "Private Enterprise" with Ade Edmondson and Peter Richardson as a couple of parole boys. They nick a tape of a band and pass it off as their own to a record company boss (Nigel Planer) who wants to release it as a tax loss. When the single gets advanced sales of something like 100,000 copies the boss decides they have to promote the single so they end up trying to blow up all these concert venues! More trouble arrives when the singer of the band (Rik Mayall in a fantastic Boy George type outfit) turns up wanting to get his money!!
It really is about time they got their fingers out and got these classic programmes released - for long enough they were the only thing worth watching on Channel 4.
"What's Mr Jolly got that we haven't?"
"Our Fairy Liquid"
I love the comic strip films and that is one of my favourites.
Yeah, there are so many classic episodes.......i've still got many episodes on VHS. Some have been lost over time which is a great shame.
Who own's the rights to the comic strip series ?? Maybe try emailing some of the actors / companies involved ??
It's about time they did appear on DVD !!
