Wow Reggie Rocket, what an amazing collection! I've just grabbed a premium FileFactory account and will start filling the gaps in my collection.
I really appreciate you putting all these episodes up for everyone. THANK YOU!
Thanks also to criscles for hooking me up today as well!
Amazing work, Reggie Rocket. Thank you!
If you're interested in the .TS file from 2015 that you missed, I still have mine*
*Unfortunately my recording ended too early so it got the first 5 Countdowns but not the 6th one :slightly_frowning_face: Better than nothing though. Happy to upload it for you.
Anyone who wants a copy of my Countdown episodes collection (H.264 MP4 files) can get:
● This year's episodes from THIS LINK (Google Drive link)
● My 2014-2019 episodes from THIS LINK (FileFactory)
"If you're interested in the .TS file from 2015 that you missed, I still have mine"
Thank you, but it is the other way around. I got that week and missed the following four! Actually, the 6th "Countdown" from that week is in my uploads linked previously as a .mpg file if you'd like to go and grab it.
This has been something really special. Lots of very generous and helpful people here have shared their content to help us all fill those gaps. Luuuc, Grant, kiersey, ReggieRocket, CountdownLover - you've all been been amazing.
I'm going to be a bit self-indulgent and post my list of PRE-DIGITAL requests. There's quite a few of us who did record Retro month on VHS since it began on RAGE, then later transferred to DVD. It seems like only a smaller group of us have gone on to digitally rip their DVD's.
If anyone can fill my list, this is what is outstanding to complete my collection.
Happy to negotiate for physical copies. It's the completist in me that would love to obtain these. So here it goes....

RetroTragic/Criscles - if I've done this right then you should be able to download the Xmas 83 episode you're both looking for from here:
Very much appreciated, cheers.
some more Countdowns here:
I've excluded all the episodes that have already been generously uploaded by Luuuc, Reggie and Grant, so these should be new to some at least.
Criscles - The "May 27th 1984 Scott & Craig (Kids in the Kitchen)" episode you want is here, but it's not the best quality (I didn't rip any of them, I just found them)
Luuuc - the two Countdowns from Rage 2014 that you are missing the start/end from are here too
Just want to say thanks for your impressive contribution of Countdown episodes you put up on DropBox. I noticed you kept updating it with more episodes, which was awesome. The link is now defunct, but what you put on there was just fantastic! Thanks.
Hi kersey. No, I'm good now. Some very generous people helped out. Thanks mate.
I have been trying to reply to an email from you, but keep getting a mail undelivered message.
Do you have another contact email, or have you been having email problems that you know of ?
Hoping you see this
