    They were going through season 3 on Monday nights. I missed a few episodes and now they seem to have stopped showing it.

    Does anyone know what happened?

    Thanks

    I just think they stopped showing them for the time being, why I do not know. Was it shown about 6.30-7.30? Because they started showing a soap? 6.30-7.00.:mad:

    It was on at 8 IIRC, then they moved it back to about 7:30 and now it's gone!

    Wouldn't they cut Angel to pieces in such an early time slot ?

    You could always just get the DVDs from CD-Wow as they are doing series 3 for 39.99

    Hi,

    It would seem that Five, as Zoolap confirms, have temporarily dropped the show, although it would have been nice if they'd announced it.

    As for censorship, with most of the Season 3 episodes being "15" certificates, mainly for stronger violence (e.g. headbutts, kicks and punches to the upper-body, women being punched and kicked in the head), and some minor occurances, but rather strong language, the editing's not been too bad, all-in-all.

    Five have managed to keep a lot of material in for their 7:30pm/8pm start-times, and have certainly let a lot of stuff go through, that Channel Four would have just deleted without any sensible reasons.

    Having seen all of Season 3 on VHS, from my local library, some of the later episodes do get quite adult in tone, but nothing that's going to cause too much concern for parents, or too brutal to warrant any major censorship. The odd bit of language, and some of the fight-scenes may be trimmed, but nothing to loose sleep over.

    At least Five are trying to treat it with some respect.

    Pooch

    The censorship is still stupid - if it isn't suitable for that time it should be shown later.

    I anjoy the series, but not enough to buy and watch again and again. I just want to see the story through all the episodes until it reaches an end.
