Network dvd sale
« on: 21 January, 2009, 09:58:59 AM »
Those lovely people at www.networkdvd.net have a nifty sale on at the moment. Everything was cheaper from their website anyway but now there's an aditional 40% off.

They specialise in ITV related programmes and amongst their back catalogue are Beasts, Kinvig, Arthur C.Clarke and the kingdom of the crystal skull, Owl Service, and brilliant shows like The adventures of Robin Hood, Special Branch, The XYY man, Upstairs Downstairs, Press Gang, and classic Corrie.

The only danger, at this point, is overspending...

Was about to shout "SPAM!" as well, but have just bought the two London's Burning box sets I'm missing for quite a lot less than I've seen elsewhere - so I guess I should shout "thanks" instead :-)

Indeed, I've just found the Prisoner on that site, and I'm wrestling with my conscience.

For the taste of it...Spam up.

It did occur to me that it was a spamtastic linkage but I'm not in anyway affiliated with the company, just a regular customer. One who shouldn't, really really shouldn't, buy the Complete Robin Hood on top of the complete Upstairs Downstairs. But I will anyway.

There's some fantastic stuff there, but their complete inability to include subtitles earns them a kick in the ringpiece.

I used to find Watching really funny.

I wonder if it still is.

That site is like a mental tar-baby, oooh remember that, ahhh I'd forgotten about that.... and only a tenner!  For a minute there I seriously considered buying the first season of Press Gang, just for fun.  Then I realised how that would affect the y-axis on my Interpol Online Nonce profile.

Ah go on, you'll love it.

For myself I've got the complete Upstairs Downstairs, and The Adventures of Robin Hood. I was going to buy the Prisoner but as it's only a fiver cheaper than Amazons price I think I'll end up with Dawsons Weekly, Espionage, and At Home with the Braithwaites. Hoorah.

I hope you're on commission Brunt. That's The Owl Service on its way. I'm sure this series, which I never knew existed, was mentioned in a recent Meg and I was intrigued then. Alan Garner's great.

That brings back memories. Especially *that* song. (I was surprised to find out the singer was a man.)

Hey ho silver!* <Doo doo!>
You got me lone Ranger!** <Doo-be-doo!>
Rindin' on down....<Do-be-doo-be-doo!
Ta rescue me!

[Backs out of the thread...]

*pronounced "sil-VA"
**I'm not sure that's exactly what he's singing, but that's what it sounds like to me.

No equal rights for spammers here.Just an overwhelming bias towards some and against others.

That would have been so funny if it was worded in the spammers own peculiar take on the English language..
