some giant pop art andy warhol-esque posters in all cities of the world just might do the trick.

I've heard of a few artists using ]Street teams for promotion.

Re: Doing something to get Darkplace noticed


I have no idea how many people are signed up to this forum but I imagine its a fair few.
I have emailed channel 4 three times regarding the DVD release date, and got the same "at the beginning of this year" reply. Funnily enough, I wasn't surprised I'd been lied to when the date was released as being in the summer!
As far as spreading the pernumbera of uncertainty that is darkplace, I suggest an e-petition! a moderator/boss, whatever the term is, of this savedarkplace site composes an email indicating the level of the support, number of members of this site, site link and the fact it has gotten so big you've run out of bandwith, and then either forward the email to all of us so every single member can forward it to channel 4, or alternatively, post it on here and let us copy and paste it and email it. either way, we'll get the support of darkplace noticed at channel 4, or we'll crash their email system if everyone does it!! I think the reason darkplace matters have diminished is because the commisioner at channel4 is unaware of its support!

reactions et cetera?

I was considering setting up a petition on [sign in to see URL] (I think thats the address) - I know the Mighty Boosh Fans on their forum had a petition on there for the radio series to be released on CD and succeeded.

Oh yeah, 133 members so far if your wondering.

IMHO DVD sales and ratings make Channel 4 take notice, and the two are inter-linked.

Re: Doing something to get Darkplace noticed


does anyone know what sort of ratings garth marenghi got when it was aired originally on channel 4? obviously it wasnt big, because of the random time it was on, lack of advertising, etc, but the ratings must have been pretty poor for the programme to be treated the way it has been.
to be honest im nott too fussed about an offical dvd tho. i have my pirate copy from ebay which serves me fine, plus i quite like the fact that only the 'in-crowd' know about darkplace. its for an exclusive, select few, and i dont want that ruined by it becoming available to any old riff-raff!

Re: Doing something to get Darkplace noticed


So you'd rather see Darkplace never get a second series because you want it all to yourself? Hmmm. Even the main man Garth himself condemned "shameless profiteering sons of bitches on E-bay." I don't understand how mass publicity will ruin Darkplace?

Personally I'd love to see Darkplace get huge, Matthew Holness deserves it, which is why I'm getting everyone I know to buy the DVD. Seems a little selfish to not buy the DVD because you love the cult status of the show (Which I believe it will always maintain due to the kind of humour Darkplace uses). The site is aptly named SAVEdarkplace.

Petition is a good idea by the way.

Re: Doing something to get Darkplace noticed


jebus, i didnt say i'd "rather see darkplace never get a second series" becasue i "want it all to myself". i think this is quite an exaggerration of what i actually said, which is that i'm "not too fussed" if it doesnt get an official dvd. also, i probablement (french for probably) didn't convey very well in that message that i wasn't being completley serious. of course it would be great if darkplace got the publicity it deserves, and i would enthusiastically sign a petition to see darkplace get a dvd release and/or second series. we're all fans here aren't we?

ps. what do mean by this?:
"Even the main man Garth himself condemned "shameless profiteering sons of *****es on E-bay."
in my opinion, what the hell is wrong with owning an ebay copy of garth marenghi??? the guys who sell em are hardley 'shamless profiteering sons of bitches' when the official dvd doesnt exist and there are die-hard fans who arent going to sit around waiting for the idiots at channel 4 to decide to give the series some justice, and publish put something in the shops. best £6 i have spent in a long while.

Right, I obviously misunderstood your post then emoticon Apologies! The quote is off the Garth Marenghi website though, in the message about the upcoming DVD release. However, the official dvd IS going to be released now, and I think it was always going to be released. However I wasn't using that quote too seriously either, seen it came from a fictional character aka emoticon

Re: Doing something to get Darkplace noticed


Darkplace has been off air since January 2004. I don't know what I would have done without my ebay DVD since Darkplace's finish. But I have respect enough for Matt Holness to support his work (brilliant original yet neglected) by buying the official DVD.
