Food Featurette

Another disc, another musical featurette. This one, included on the Series III DVD, is set to I Got You (I Feel Good) by James Brown, a song which is familiar to everyone in the Western World, apart from John Hoare.

Series III DVD Review

I like DVD release dates. Waking up early, getting down to Woolies at 9am, taking the day off college, rushing to get the review finished, then soaking up the reaction on the internet. Lovely.
