Slightly odd dream last night in which I went for a meeting with a particularly grumpy Hugh Laurie*, who asked me lots of trick questions while I sat on a chair which had annoyingly short legs.
I mention this only because today, the ever-reliable Twitchfilm have news of the release of the first in a series of four 'A bit of Fry and Laurie DVD's'. Closer inspection reveals that these are Region 2 only, and I can find no details of plans for a Region 1 release. Fortunately however I am a Neuromancer-style techno-jenyus and have hacked my cheapo DVD player into taking all regions, and it's quite cheap to order stuff from the States anyway, what with the dollar being a bit low, as it's no longer based on science.
UPDATE: Patroclus has pointed out that that the UK is in Region 2, and that I am, in fact, a dur-brain.
My friend Matt has the sketch on video where Stephen Fry does a deliberately bad joke about politicians having no heart (or something), where Hugh Laurie looks on, dressed as a nurse, eyes boggling with fury. I'm only allowed to watch it once a year, for medical reasons. Anyway, when that DVD comes IN REGION 2 WHICH IS WHERE I LIVE, OBVIOUSLY, I can make that high-pitched keening sound all year round. My flatmate will be delighted.
* And I've never even seen 'House', but the posters are everywhere.
