Great clip. I'd like to see the rest of that show. Is Kevin wearing a H2K2 shirt?

Steve Wozniak stole the show. Very dynamic. This man is a part of history.

I like when Leo introduced John Markoff. Markoff is assigned to San Francisco where "Screensavers" is shot. Even so, I noticed that the New York Times article mentioning the end of Mitnick's internet prohibition was not written by Markoff. Seems NYT was a bit slow noticing that conflict of interest.

Emmanuel is filming the DVD version of Freedom Downtime. The new version is being funded by sales of the VHS version. Well worth buying both.

Mitnick and Emmanuel do an excellent follow up on this week's episode of "Off the Hook".

The Joke is of a great bad taste... for sure...
WEll... Mitnick and Goldstein... I think we can expect really good thinks on H2K3 and even better things on 2600.

what do you mean "filming" ? You mean that they are simply making it on DVD now? Or are they going to film new material and edit the older version?

2600 is adding new footage to the Freedom Downtime DVD. The VHS version is already a fat 121 minutes and that version is different from the original release. The one problem with these versions is that it is a movie about Kevin Mitnick but Kevin isn't in it a lot.

Porkchop who edited Downtime said that the DVD would include multiple subtitles, nods to the 2600-MPAA connection and many other features. He is considering a deleted scenes selection that will include the full version of Metrocard scene. Other than that, any footage that was deemed film-worthy is already in the VHS version.

I'm glad I have the VHS version, because I'm interested in what they going to change and if they're going to remove anything to allow for the new footage. Freedom Downtime is a comedy documentary. Porkchop says the style was inspired by Michael Moore (Rodger and Me, Bowling for Columbine). But there is a more subtle technological humor. Look for joke is credits and warning for example. Having the VHS means I freeze it to find out what various computer monitors are displaying, a courier's nation-wide combination or the frequency my local drive-through is broadcasting and ... transmitting. I know you can do all this with the DVD as well, but the VHS version is here now and it supports filming additional footage for the DVD.
