Wow!
I didn't think that Volume 2 will be released this fast. I still need to buy Volume 1.

I watched everything on Vol. 1 in a week. Since then I've had three people ask to borrow it. I should charge rent.

I'm surprised to hear how many people I know loved that show when it was on.

I will buy all volumes.

If there's some way to request decent chapter markers on this and future releases, it would be nice. For me, a chapter header only for commercial break spots is about as helpful as having the release on VHS to access favorite scenes.

For those that have not picked up Vol 1 yet, be sure to go to Blockbuster Video where it is (mis)priced at $29.95, you will probably have to special-order it. See the thread in the bargains forum for all the gory details.

None of my friends seem to remember this skit, but I think its one of the funniest things they ever did! Can't wait!

"I'm Taking My Own Head, Screwin' it on Right and No Guy's Gonna Tell Me That It Ain't!"
"Eh?"

That sounds familiar. Was it Catherine O'Hara saying that?

Actually, at the end of the "play," the entire cast says the first part to Joe Flaherty:
"I'm Taking My Own Head, Screwin' it on Right and No Guy's Gonna Tell Me That It Ain't!"

And Flaherty's response is:
"Eh?"

Which just killed me!

Do they have the rights to release the earlier seasons?

I hope Melonville gets all of their shows onto DVD in a timely fashion.
