American Gothic MUST be brought out on DVD or we'll pine away!
It is so nice to know that there are other people out there in the world who remain as passionate as I do about American Gothic ten years on.
I loved this series even though the TV network showed the episodes in the wrong order or often missed them out completely. It was wonderfully written showing a facility with language that is very rarely seen in American programmes (sorry USA but it's true!). The acting was fabulous - but then I have long been a fan of Gary Cole!
So, I have signed all the petitions to bring this series out on DVD but still nothing seems to have happened. I accidentally taped over the few episodes I had managed to copy and have bitterly regretted it ever since.
With so much interest in American Gothic continuing worldwide - surely someone must get the hint?!
