... How can we go one knowing that this will NEVER be released on DVD?! Well, just barely, to be honest. I discovered SPUNG halfway through the first season and got hooked from there on. The show follows 6 people during school as they party, drink, have sex, and try to figure out why life is so hard to figure out. It deals with real issues and gives a heart and soul to all those thaughts that you yourself had during you're years trying to get on with your life and your choices.
As mentioned before, this show will NEVER be seen on DVD or even VHS or TV (probably) for that matter. Mainly because the series uses such a bizarre amount of music (about 10 songs per episode at least) and the rights to all this would just be too expensive to ever get it released. In fact, the music is also so much of what made SPUNG "SPUNG", it was a real genuine feeling of youth, flowing through every show, but it didn't feel faked like Saved By The Bell (yeah, I know it's an understatement, but I couldn't think of anything else) or Beverly Hills, it was actually genuine. Real people, with real problems, really really depressed, happy, sad, in love, and f***ed up.
The acting was also amazing. Blended with a grainy and unique visual style (influenced perhaps by a dogmatic feel) the series uses a lot of coulor and high contrast imagery which really made it stand out from the rest of SVT's crappy shows.
So yada yada yada, you will probably never get to see this :(
