Just two movies. But I want the original series… Here’s the plan: Everybody will order 10 copies (R1) of both movies. That should convince MB that they have to release the original series, too. Besides, I’ve heard that you will miss most of the jokes if you haven’t seen the series. Old actors doing cameos, all references etc.
It’ll be like Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back probably. Like if you had seen all the films like Clerks, Mallrats, Chasing Amy, etc. beforehand, then you got a lot of references and nods, but people who hadn’t were none the wiser, and got the jokes in a whole other way.
