Actually, I'm not sure how new/old this project is. I'm intrigued to see how this series develops. :lol:

Jemaine and Taika have officially regressed to age 12, lol. Nice to see their success is opening doors for them to work on projects that involve digusting bodily secretions. :lol:

This tv series is from 2003-2004 and the whole series of 10 episodes is available on DVD. I wonder how I can watch a DVD from New Zealand here in Europe if I managed to buy it... hmmm...

I can't believe they made 10 episodes of this, lol.

Emira I could be mistaken but can't you watch any DVD on the computer? I thought computers were zone free.

You can...to a point. You get five free plays, at least that's what my Mac tells me. That might be part of the copyright of that particular movie (Diagnosis Death).

I love Taika as the patient purple octo-germ Casting against type!

Thanks, emira. Somehow it makes me feel better that it's an older project. :wink: I'll admit that I had a bit of trouble telling Taika's voice from Jemaine's.

I think it's possible with Macs, just as MM said, but I don't know how it works with PCs. I used to try to watch a DVD from the Uniteds, but couldn't. Maybe my system was too old. Oh, well... I'll try to get the DVD anyway and worry about it later. :)

You have to manually go into you're settings and tell your computer what region you want to play. Most computers (and all Macs I think) let you change this setting only 5 times and then it's stuck on that 5th change. Or you can download freeware like VCL Player that allows you to watch pretty much any region DVD. The quality is not as good as if you were watching directly from your computer but it's not terrible and better than nothing. Or you can get a region-free DVD play for really really cheap, at least here in the States. Like $30 at Target. I'm bet you can find one for pretty cheap in Poland too, Emira.

I never had problems with watching DVD's on my old PC. I have many region 4 ones and they have been fine. I did have VLC iirc. We use a multi region DVD player also and watch DVD's from all over. Dirt cheap online. Can get them for £15 these days.
