Wow - So did i read that these are high quality versions of clips.... By high quality i mean, not recorded from VHS? (Not that there's anything wrong with that of course.)

Great News... Any official announcements or comments from WD?

I'd say there using the master tapes from the NFSA . When i got that last lot of stuff out of the archive i noticed that they had all the late show episodes there as well but since i could only get access to copys that had a timecode box along the top so i decided not to get them and just stick with the VHS rips from here.

As nice as it would be to have a high quality version of TLS, I figure if im gonna risk getting in trouble for copying stuff out of the NFSA then im gonna stick to stuff that isnt already available

Just noticed this little nugget when watching the Exorcism Parody sketch.

Did this info ever appear on any of the VHS/DVD releases or is someone adding comments to the Youtube clips?

Good find!

I completely forgot about that sketch, the only part i remembered was Tony being possessed by Maurie Fields :lol:

I had the day off work today so i took a look at the original episode and that text is definitely not there and as far as i can remember that sketch isn't on any of the VHS/DVD's so someone must be adding the comments before they upload the clip

I had a lot of those moments yesterday after watching the first 15 or so clips....

There were a few other bits of writing over sketches, but i didn't really take note at the time...

One was definitely at the start of the Mick n Tone Street Theater sketch, but it was really only to reference an earlier joke, for context..

And for those playing at home >>>>

The clips with notes are from the olden days/bargearse DVD. The bits uploaded so far are all from the DVD's
