A lot of us have had this show on dvd and cd for a couple of years.Without wanting to boast(although i am) i've got 9 dotv shows from previews to the final show.Shame ive only got two steve barton shows of tanz plus one other european show on dvd.Also i like the japanese cast album of tanz.The poland cast cd sounds very eurovision in places.I did enjoy dotv.I know it ain't tanz but its still good in places.
