What I want is the entire television series to become available on Netflix Instant. The movie is just a "best-of" reel.
So do I. Hopefully, once this version has played for a bit, they'll decide to release the whole series. Does anyone know if the film version was released anywhere other than North America? FWIW, I enjoyed what I got (I watched it last night after posting it was available on Netflix), but having seen so many clips from the series I began anticipating what would come next, only to be disappointed that certain scenes were suddenly chopped down. For instance, the green liqueur "snot" aperitif scene drops the Ray Winstone sputum imagery, I presume because not enough folks in North America know who Ray Winstone is. Overall, it was a pleasant film that had me laughing quite a bit. I wonder how closely this mirrors Coogan and Brydon's actual relationship. Brydon seems like someone you'd really enjoy having a relaxing pint with, whereas having a pint with Coogan might be more taxing on a person.
: The movie is available now on Netflix streaming.
But not in Canada (or anywhere else outside the U.S.?).
Alas, I do think we have to be more careful or particular about such announcements these days, given that Netflix is spreading to country after country, each with its own set of distributors.
I say "announce away". I'd like to know what others are getting to see that I'm missing here if, for no other reason, than to be able to pester Netflix and film distributors to make more product available to a wider audience.
