Reality on Demand debuts

A mix of experience and unknowns will help bring to life a new, independent TV series that follows four strangers testing an advanced virtual reality game world. Composed of their favourite television shows and movies, they become trapped in a world where cancellation means death. So begins the adventure in Reality on Demand.

The series was filmed in and around Evansville, Indiana, USA during the summer and early autumn of 2011. Since then, collaborators Julie Hernandez Seaton and Jarrod Moschner have been working in post-production on the series so that all is ready to roll for the show’s debut on 18 January 2012. “Reality on Demand is packed with action, laughs, visual effects, and a few zombies. Everyone knows you can't have a web series without zombies” said series creator and director Marx Hernandez Pyle. “Most importantly, the show has great characters. It's a nice blend of comedy and drama. Once you're done watching season one, you'll want to follow the adventures of these characters and learn more about this crazy virtual world, which is a blend of television and film."

The Corridor People on DVD

The Corridor People ran for only four one hour episodes in 1966, yet has garnered a considerable underground cult following. Incredibly difficult to pigeonhole, reviewers have mentioned the likes of The Avengers, Twin Peaks and even Monty Python as reference points. However, it is none of these as it carved its own niche, with its mainly-studio recorded monochrome production, a few filmed inserts, and a combination of surreal characters and camera work. Rest assured that once seen it will never be forgotten. 

Phil Scrotty is an American, Bogart-worshipping private detective, and each episode sees him pitched against the cunning schemes of Syrie Van Epp, a beautiful but treacherous Persian millionaire.

Avengers Series 4 DVDs

You can win Diana Rigg’s debut season of The Avengers, retailing at £59.99, for nominating in this year’s Cult TV Awards. We have three copies to give away to the trio pulled out of our electronic hat, and this is one hell of an incentive to get your ‘thinking cap’ on! The Avengers Series 4 hit UK audiences in 1965-6, with some major changes from what had gone before.

More than 80 actresses auditioned for the role before Rigg was discovered.  Her screen test with Macnee showed the two immediately worked well together, and a new era in Avengers history began.  It was also this series, the first to be on film, but the last to be in black and white, which was sold to US television for the then unheard of sum of $2 million. This made it one of the first British series to be aired on prime-time American Television.

Brian Clemens BFI Season

Brian Clemens’ vivid imagination and flair for elaborate plotting – crossed with his gift for witty banter – have enlivened British TV and cinema for over 50 years, and in that time he has worked for some of the greatest action/adventure series ever made. The BFI is charting the career of the amazingly prolific Mr Clemens in a season of screenings next month.

From 2-31 July 2010, the BFI will be raiding the archives, mixing some of his finest work with some of the rarities that the vaults have allowed to be exhumed. Brian has worked on some of the greatest action-adventure series ever made, and the BFI will be screening the likes of The Avengers, Danger Man and, from the big screen, “Captain Kronos: Vampire Hunter”. Mr Clemens will also be appearing live in a pair of interview – one specifically on The Avengers, the other a more general overview of his career.

Curry & Chips comes to DVD

Written by Johnny Speight, creator of Till Death Us Do Part, and based on an idea by Spike Milligan, Curry & Chips proved to be one of the most controversial situation comedies ever made. Originally screened in 1969, the series featured Milligan as Kevin O’Grady, a man of mixed Asian and Irish descent who has just started his new job at Lillicrap Ltd, manufacturer of cheap novelty items and seaside souvenirs.

Inevitably, he soon becomes the butt of jokes from his resoundingly intolerant workmates. Speight’s determined attempt at confronting racism with its own conventions polarised critical opinion, although it was extremely popular with the viewing public and ended up in the ITV Top Ten. The character of O’Grady actually made his first appearance in an episode of Till Death Us Do Part.

Cloudy Meatballs on Blu-ray

When Flint Lockwood (Bill Hader – a stalwart of the more recent Saturday Night Live line-up) sees his latest contraption accidentally destroy his town’s square and rocket up into the clouds, he thinks his inventing career is over. Then, something incredible happens as fast-food cheeseburgers start raining from the sky. His machine actually works! As you would expect of our world population these days, people greedily ask for more and more food.  As the machine is so obliging, it runs amok, unleashing spaghetti tornadoes and giant meatballs that threaten the world!

It's up to Flint, with the help of weather girl Sam Sparks (Anna Faris – Cindy in the “Scary Movie” franchise) and Steve, his talking monkey assistant (voiced by Neil Patrick Harris of How I Met Your Mother), to find some way to shut down the machine before the world is covered in super-sized meatballs!  Directed by Phil Lord and Christopher Miller, “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” was based on a book by Judi Barrett and Ron Barrett. The film is produced by Pam Marsden.

For All Mankind - DVD

“For All Mankind” has been released in the fortieth anniversary year of the original moon landings. During the Apollo lunar missions from 1968 to 1972, those onboard were given 16mm cameras and asked to film anything and everything they could - in space, in orbit, and on the surface of the moon itself. In 1989, filmmaker Al Reinert went into the NASA vaults to create this compendium of their journeys and experiences.

At times intimate then awe-inspiring, “For All Mankind” is a first-hand document of one of the historical cusps of the 20th century. The Masters of Cinema Series presents Criterion's high-definition restoration of the film for its UK home viewing première in a comprehensive, director-approved special edition on DVD and Blu-ray.

YEAR ONE on DVD

Jack Black and Michael Cera star in the new movie from the Director of “Caddyshack” and “Groundhog Day” – the Director in question is Harold Ramis, the film in question is “Year One”, out now on Blu-ray™ High-Def and DVD.

Billed as allowing us to play witness to the evolution of comedy, “Year One” stars Jack Black (“Nacho Libre”, “Tropic Thunder”) and Michael Cera (Arrested Development, “Superbad”) as an unlikely duo of primitive men who, after being exiled from their tribe, set out on a road-trip-style journey through the ancient world. Along the way, they encounter a host of famous historical figures played by a tribe of comedy icons, including Hank Azaria (Homer in The Simpsons), David Cross (another star of Arrested Development), Oliver Platt (the irascible Russell Tupper in Huff – which also starred Azaria), Paul Rudd (Mike Hannigan in Friends), and would you believe, the legendary Brit tough Brit Vinnie Jones!

Jimmy Carr: Telling Jokes DVD

Jimmy Carr marks ten years in comedy with the release of his fifth live stand-up DVD, “Jimmy Carr Telling Jokes”, out now through 4DVD. Featuring 90 minutes of fresh material that’s just too rude for television, the new title sees Jimmy Carr do what he can’t do on broadcast telly: machine-gunning relentless one liners and putting down brave hecklers with equal panache.  

Filmed earlier in 2009 at the Bloomsbury Theatre during his latest tour, the DVD also features never-been-seen-before DVD extras including Jimmy’s Twitter Diary, a Comedy Central Special and bonus stand-up material from the tour.

Blackadder Remastered!

Blackadder is one of the most fondly remembered and critically acclaimed BBC comedies ever to emerge from England. It traces the deeply cynical and self-serving lineage of various Edmund Blackadders from the muck of the Middle Ages to the frontline of World War I. Packed with brand new and exclusive extras and digitally restored episodes, Blackadder Remastered - The Ultimate Edition is out now on DVD.

British comic actor Rowan Atkinson plays all five versions of Edmund, beginning with the villainous and cowardly Duke of Edinburgh, whose scheming mind and awful haircut seem to stand him in good stead to become the next Archbishop of Canterbury - a deadly occupation if ever there was one. Among tales of royal dethronings, Black Death, witch-smellers (who root out spell-makers with their noses), and ghosts, Edmund is a perennial survivor who never quite gets ahead in multiple episodes.
