    ROME I think is a must watch and I hope that the BBC editing of the first ep to cut down on the historical background is just a rumour and not a fact. I don't know about anyone else but Roman History wasn't big in my comprehensive education and wouldn't it be bizarre for a US production being cut for having to much educational content:)
    The BBC may have limited HD via Dsat by the time ROME is screened, that would be the way to see such a costume drama.

    Prison Breaks pilot was excellent so I'll be watching Five when they show that and Supernatural is the new X-Files if it's treated right by ITV.

    NTL capping my broadband has made me appreciate broadcast TV a little more even if I have to wait 6-12 months to watch some of the shows:)
