    It would be really cool if they had a reunion, I was sorta hoping for a MITM marathon or something in the U.S. like they had with Glenn Martin D.D.S. last week on Nick at Nite (grr I only had 30 minutes of MITM the whole week) anyways, based on the schedule here http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0212671/tvschedule for the US, it doesn't look like there's going to be anything until 1:35 A.M and that's it.

    Now that our Gallery is mostly complete, I've finally found some time to deal with the 10th anniversary again, after a very hectic December that left me hardly any time to spend on more constructive things than upload the odd picture! It's a pity time is so short now, December is always a crazy month to get things done - remember we Dutch are foolish enough to also celebrate Sinterklaas (the historical Santa Claus) as a completely separate feast with lots of presents and poems on December 5th!

    OK, I've just contacted Levie Isaacks, MITM's main cinematographer, again and sent him a couple of questions about his work on MITM. For the moment, the idea is for him to type up replies which I will publish on this site, but I've also invited him to come to our site on January 9th and pass on the invitation to any crew or cast he might know.

    I really don't know what to do with Dutch Comedy Central yet. They're showing MITM now for another (third?) run at the viewer-friendly time of 9:15 p.m., and it's actually bringing in new fans - quite a feat considering they're showing hosts of umpteenth reruns of Scrubs, Frasier, Futurama, Simpsons, 70s Show, South Park!

    As we can't offer goodies or promise anything substantial in terms of interaction (I think, TJ?), I can ask them to direct any ardent fans to our site on January 9th to become members or just have a chat.

    Best,

    Rich

    P.S. I noticed something funny and striking for Dutch web users. A lot of us use www.startpagina.nl as their default homepage to link to certain popular topics - if you prefer a thematic search to just haphazard Googling. Now, if you go all the way down to TV comedies, the entry for MITM links directly not to some Dutch site, but to us! (and I had no hand in this whatsoever)

    Thanks a lot, Rich! I have been busy as well, and looking at the stats, so have a lot of other members. I suppose this is an extremely busy time of year, but now that the holidays are ending, I hope members will trickle back to the VC in time for the Anniversary.

    I'm now going to try and dedicate as much time as possible to this, I was thinking we could do an Anniversary "month" because getting everything sorted for 1 day (so close to hand) will be hard. I've contacted Frankie just now about it.

    Great idea to make this a special month instead of the one day! Did you contact Frankie on Twitter or Facebook?

    The 'Dutch route' isn't going too well. Monique has let me know that she's been wanting to close down her fan Hyves (the Dutch Facebook) for a while, because she moved on to different things - it's a terribly designed one anyway, which frustrated me no end (just between me, you and ... the rest of the world)!

    Comedy Central decided against a special event, because there's nothing to offer. As you can see on the site http://www.comedycentral.nl/ (Win!-links), they offer DVDs, signed stuff and special parties, but it's not a running series, and they can't even offer the DVD because it's the wrong region !

    They concentrated on The Simpsons' 20th Anniversary instead in December: viewers could choose their Top 20 episodes, which were shown in one week, and famous (a relative term) Dutch actors and comedians voiced one episode as a special event.

    Anyway, I'll restrict myself to POSITIVE news in this thread. Me no wet blanket, nor spoilsport!

    Yes, it would be terribly hard to fit this into 1 day but we could kick off with a special celebration 24 VC party from 8:30 pm friday night to 8:30 pm Saturday night ( the exact time it first aired). Plus, since it is 24 hours long, members from all time zones can check in and not miss the party! And maybe a special event every week throughout the month! Well, just throwing it out there.
    P.S. Too bad about Dutch comedy central. But, I'm sure they would have if they could.

    Awesome! Well, only a few minutes until MITM would have first hit the airwaves 10 years ago...tonight. (sounds cliche to me)

    It's a small step for mankind, but a giant leap for a Malcolm!
    (avoiding cliché)

    P.S. I've always loved a cliché!
