Yesterday we passed along the great news
, from Chris Elliot himself, that Shout! Factory is working on a release of Get a Life - The Complete Series
on DVD. Since then the number one question from fans has been whether or not the show's original theme song during it's broadcasts, "Stand" by REM, would be included with the new DVD release. We didn't know at the time...and in fact we didn't even have confirmation from Shout! themselves about the title being in the works.
Now, both questions are answered courtesy of a discussion at Shout!'s message board
. There at the studio's official website, one fan passed along a link to our story yesterday, saying "If this does come to pass, the biggest question is whether REM's Stand survives as the theme song.
" One of Shout!'s DVD producers, the well-known Brian Ward, quickly answered the question. While he apparently isn't working on this title himself, he said that "I'm told by the set's producer that the theme song is in tact.
So fans can, in fact, stand in the place where you live when you get a life. We still don't know when that will be available on DVD, but stay tuned and we'll keep you updated as best we can!
