Stewart Lee's self-piracy
In an excellent move, Stewart Lee has decided to upload some of he and Richard Herring's old TV material on to Google Video! So far, there's series two of Fist of Fun, and both series of This Morning With Richard Not Judy, in their entirety. And they're all in really good quality, and the ones I've tested seem to be the complete shows from start to finish, so they're far superior to the dodgy, thousandth-generation-VHS-quality torrents that have been going round for years (which had bits of TMWRNJ shows missing, and some eps of FoF in the wrong aspect ratio and suchlike).
This is an excellent move. The BBC were never going to release them on DVD, because they’re idiots. Everyone who’s already a fan of Lee and Herring will love to see this stuff in decent quality again, and indeed convert their sceptical loved ones to the cause (as I will be doing when my girlfriend gets home from work). And if you’ve never gotten in to them before, then a) you’re an idiot, and b) this is your chance to see some of their best work for free.
