Full “Curse of Steptoe” on YouTube

Post by Hot Wheels » Wed Mar 27, 2019 4:35 pm

I was poking around some older folders & found this one.

I also like to go to my YouTube, put Jason’s name and some of his works (or, sometimes, just random words), just to see what come up.

Anyway, look what I found (a little surprising, IMO, given my understanding of the controversy surrounding the project).

PSST! Be sure and check out the rollicking number at the 00:02:30 mark! Short, but sweet!!):

You’re welcome (and I took a chance...and just got lucky)!

I have the DVD, but I think everything was stopped because of the controversy with the family. So it's really hard to find now. Thanks, Hot Wheels. :D

You’re wecolme, too! There’s no telling what else is out there! (Even if you don’t have a YouTube account, you should be able to access videos via Google...try typing “Jason Isaacs ______ YouTube”.)

I know plenty of his movies are on YouTube, but I don't think we should share links here to his work (full movies and series) that are easily available to buy or watch on VOD or different streaming services. It's his and others' livelihood afterall. But if they aren't available... that's more in the grey zone, I think. ;-)

I've been collecting over several years, A lot ofhis work, even old work is available to watch via the official channels/means.

Aye, aye, Skipper.

If that means I’m busted, then do what you must....

No, you are on the right side of the line so far. If they don’t sell it, we can post links to it (as long as it is on a respectable site), at least that’s my opinion of grey zone. :mrgreen:

I agree completely! If it’s easily legally available then we expect people to support the artists by purchasing the ticket/DVD of film/series/subscription/etc. But if it is no longer available or is promotional interviews/articles- then post those links.
