Official DVD Release of Bargearse and The Olden Days

Post by BenjaminG »

Hi all,

Hope everyone is well.

I'm hearing that Village Roadshow are prepping a DVD release of Bargearse and The Olden Days. All I know is both titles will be on the same DVD, later this year, possibly Aug/ Sept.

If/ when I know more, I will let you know.

Cheers,
Ben

This is great news. I hope TM packs it with extras.


( Edit: Also, I'm disappearing for a while (at this stage, the rest of the year). We have lots of serious work and home commitments, including moving house, packing and storing goods etc etc. and this includes the computer. I won't have time for forums. I hope to talk to you all again later in the year. )

Yes, I too hope it'll be the version Tone used to talk up - the one where you could make your own Bargearse episode in the extras.

Also coming soon, there's this: http://www.ezydvd.com.au/item.zml/794263

(Good luck with the moving and the packing Steve - hope to hear from you again soon)

Tony has today revealed 2 of the easter eggs:

- Rob as Uncle Sam in the street theatre awards sketch (one of my favourites)

- the Four Kinsmen "Cop Killer" sketch.

... and now I can die a happy man. As an Ice-T fan back in the day (I even have the Body Count album with Copkiller on it, not the later pressing where it was removed), the Four Kinsman version was the catchiest song I'd ever heard. And the clip features some of the best facial expressions ever seen on late Show cast members, from Rob's snooty to Jase's creepy. Yay!

Tony is giving it some sizzle with that 17 Easter Eggs on the DVD. This is dizzy stuff folks.

The EzyDVD page has had an update:

Bargearse:

By re-voicing the classic 1976 Crawford’s police drama ‘Bluey’ the D Generation have created an entirely new story which is at once a subtle and Bergmanesque rumination on the nature of existence, and a thinly veiled excuse for some bloody good fart jokes.

The Olden Days:
In the hands of the D Generation the original ABC series of ‘Rush’ becomes a steamy tale of hope, betrayal and false moustaches set against the rarely-convincing backdrop of the Victorian ‘mud-fields’.
Also, the first half of this year's The Chaser's War on Everything goes on sale the same day.

And season 2 of Thank God You're Here comes out a week later.

And the EzyDVD website's spruiking an interactive DVD board game starring the Chopper character from The Ronnie Johns Half Hour, called Chopoly. I will probably never buy it, but I liked this in the stats at the bottom:

Aspect Ratio: Who F*ckin Cares!
BUT WAIT!! (No reason, but thanks anyway.)

It's here! By which I mean, I've grabbed a pre-release copy (for work purposes) and here's what the back cover has to say:

Where's Me Bloody Extras:

*Commentary Tracks with Tony Martin and Santo Cilauro
*Olden Days coda
*Italian Bargearse
*The 1992 Street theatre Awards
*The Last Aussie Auteur: a tribute to filmmaker Warren Perso
*Pete Smith sings Aerosmith
*Seventeen often mystifying Easter Eggs
*Something else

I haven't had time to watch any of it yet - I'll report back as soon as I do.
