Around the world...

So, last night I decided that I'm flying to LA on Friday morning. It's very last-minute, but there's a great opportunity there on Saturday.

For two years I've been bugging Warner Bros to release "The Adventures of Brisco County Jr" on DVD. We've posted the news that it's coming out, but now I'm getting a bit more involved in the set, with the blessing of Warner Bros. I want to promote this set pretty heavily on the site, and instead of simply posting "Buy the set," I'm going after some exclusive material. They're shooting interviews with Carlton Cuse and some of the writers on Saturday, and I'll be there to cover it. I'll snap some photos, hopefully get some audio clips, and try to stay out of trouble. We're going to be doing some other cool things with the set, so if you're a fan of the show then you'll want to keep checking the site for the news.

I leave around 7:00 am tomorrow, but that means I have to be at the airport around 5 am. I'm freaky tall (6'8" - seriously), so I need an exit row or else I can't move for a few hours after getting off the plane. I fly through Las Vegas (America West got rid of their direct flight - damn them!) and get into LA about 10:30 am. I've managed to make lunch plans with a friend, and dinner plans with some TV critics in LA for the Television Critic's Association gathering. Saturday will be spent at the interviews, and hanging out...maybe doing some shopping, or stalking celebs. I leave to come back at 9:00 pm, flying through Vegas again (free wireless internet in the airport), and I get home at 4:00 am. Now the problem is that I leave for Toronto with my girlfriend Monday morning, so I have about 25 hours to get caught up on sleep and pack for that trip. Phew!!

Hopefully I'll find some time between LA and Toronto to post some of the material from the interviews.

Good luck on your trip and I hope you get some good material for the site. I still can't believe after all this time of wanting it they are finally putting Brisco out on dvd, I haven't looked this forward to any dvd set in a long time. I would just be happy with the episodes but it sounds like there is going to be so much more and I look forward to hearing what the extras will be.

That sounds Awesome! Good Luck... and have a great time! Brisco will be a blind buy for me... but after all this talk I have to see this set now!

It's a very worthy blind buy. You won't be disappointed.

I know people really want this show released, but I don't know a thing about it. Can someone fill me in?

Thanks!

Seriously, 6'8" that's freaky tall. I always suspected that there was something different about you.

Gord's so thin and tall that he makes up for my short, potbellied appearance. I'm 5'5" and with the holiday eating I probably am dangerously close to 200 lbs, if not actually there.

Mutt 'n' Jeff, if we ever got together side-by-side.

But 6'8"...Gord's someone we can all look up to!

Hey I am 5'10 and I would have loved to have met a guy 6'8 back when I was single. It would have made me feel tiny. LOL!

I would love to answer the question about Brisco but I am afraid I won't do the show justice and it has been a family favorite for years now. It was certainly a show before its time in that people didn't really appreciate it when it was on. I didn't get into it until I became a fan of Bruce Campbell and then TNT started showing it and I was hooked. It is just so funny and unlike anything else I have ever seen especially the pilot episode. Believe me if you buy it you won't be sorry. Hopefully when Gord returns he will have more info to pass along about it.

Hey, I'm not THAT thin! I have a 38" waist, and I weigh more than you do, Dave :P

Excellent news - I loved that show, especially in the first season.
