Good Afternoon, Folks,

It’s March, and I am now back, with my newest Monthly TV Update for you all. Shockingly, there are still plenty of new dramas still making their way into the schedules, meaning that in 2007 alone, we’ve been given some 20-or-so new shows to get all excited over. And the list doesn’t end here. There are still more to come! :eek: Be prepared to put those VCR’s, DVD Recorders and Sky Plus boxes into overdrive again. Here we go… Enjoy!


Saturday 3rd March
TV NEWS: Artsworld
From today onwards, “Artsworld” will be rebranded as “Sky Arts”. Quite why this is, seeing as the channel has always been run by Sky, to cater specifically for more subjective viewers for whom even BBC4 isn’t “arty” enough for them, I don’t know. Anyway, as much as I prefer the old name, Sky seems to think otherwise. Ah well, at least the channel’s content remains the same!

Xena: Warrior Princess – 4:00-9:00pm
Bravo 2 start a complete season-by-season repeat of all 6 seasons of this enjoyably risqué and campy action-fantasy show, which introduced us Brits to New Zealand actress Lucy Lawless (who can now be seen in the remake of “Battlestar Galactica”). Season 1, episodes 1-5 air today, with a second chance on Sunday morning, between 8:00am and 1:00pm. After that, episodes will air each weekday at 8:00am and a daily repeat at 5:00pm. Then, you can do a weekly catch-up each Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning, when the same block of episodes are repeated again. Fans of the “Hercules” show, see Sunday’s schedule for details. (Bravo 2)

NEW: Heroes – 9:00pm-12:10am
If you’ve not yet caught-up with this brand new, and adult-oriented sci-fi drama series, here are two more chances to catch the first three episodes, back-to-back. Also repeated between 1:10-4:20am tonight. (Sci-Fi Channel)

NEW: Nip/Tuck – 11:00pm-12:05am
Season 4, episode 8, and the show now moves into an alternative time-slot, meaning that the show now only airs once a week on Sky 1, and there are no weekly repeats of the show at all on either Sky 1 or Sky 2! :mad: (Sky 1)


Sunday 4th
The Dukes Of Hazzard – 9:00-10:00am

Start of a Sunday morning repeat run of all the episodes made of this classic Saturday teat-time action show from the 1980’s. See how the General Lee came into being, and how Bo, Luke and Daisy Duke all became cultural icons to a generation of thrity-somthings! No repeats, of any episodes I’m afraid, bar the +1 channel schedules. (Bravo)

Knight Rider – 10:00-11:00am
Another chance to catch this classic action-adventure show, that gave the world the Hoff-meister himself, David Hasselhoff, and the world’s favourite talking car, in the form of KITT (or Knight Industries Two Thousand, to us geeks!). See how Michael Knight became the man he did, with the first half of the original 1983 Pilot Movie. Episodes continue each Sunday morning. As per “The Dukes Of Hazzard”, no repeats other than on the +1 channel schedules. (Bravo)

FILM: Logan’s Run (PG) – 3:45-5:55pm
Excellent, cerebral 1970’s sci-fi movie classic, where citizens are culled, once they reach their 30th birthday. Michael York plays the titular role, with Jenny Agutter as his friend, who both go AWOL in an attempt to escape the cull. Some minor violence, but otherwise family-friendly. (Five)

Hercules: The Legendary Journeys - 4:00-9:00pm
Bravo 2 start a complete season-by-season repeat of all 5 seasons of the original fantasy adventure show, loosely based on the Greek hero Hercules. Season 1, episodes 1-5 air today, with a second chance tonight, to see episodes 3, 4 and 5 between 2:00am and 5:00am. After that, episodes will air each weekday at 9:00am and a daily repeat at 4:00pm. Then, you can do a weekly catch-up each Sunday afternoon from 4:00pm, when the same block of episodes are repeated again. Fans of the “Xena” spin-off show, see yesterday’s schedule for details. (Bravo 2)

NEW: Grey’s Anatomy – 8:00-10:00pm
All-new (to terrestrial viewers) episodes of Season 2, and Meredith is still deciding how to sort-out her love-life. Will Dr Shepherd choose her or return back to his ex-wife, in order to make another attempt at romance? First of 22 episodes. Viewers should note that Five are airing all Season 2 episodes, in their correct order. In the USA, the final 5 episodes that form the end of Season 1, were added-on to the beginning of Season 2, giving a run of 27 episodes in total. LivingTV aired the show in the US format, whereas Five have corrected the error, airing the full 13 episodes of Season 1 together, and will now run the 22 episodes of Season 2 together over the next 11 weeks or so. Viewers should also note, that Five plans to air two episodes every Sunday evening! :eek: (Five)

NEW: Criminal Minds – 10:00-11:00pm
Another chance to catch the first episode of Season 2, if you missed it on Friday night, and the episode concludes the story from the end of Season 1, as the gang attempt to decode the chilling clues and evidence that the criminal Fisher King has left for them. Expect some scenes of violence, and disturbing storylines. The show continues each Friday night at 9pm, with repeats each Sunday at 10pm. (LivingTV)

FILM: Patrick (15) – 1:15-3:05am
Late-night horror chiller, of a previously heavily-cut video horror title from Vipco. Susan Penhaligon plays the nurse who finds a patient she is looking after in the local hospital’s psychiatric ward, has developed special psycho-kinetic powers that allow him to read other peoples’ thoughts, fears and emotions. Interesting movie, with some occasional scenes of gore, but best enjoyed for its now dated portrayal of psychiatric patients and psychiatric treatment. Electroshock therapy, anyone?! :D Showing uncut and in the original 1.85:1 ratio. (BBC2)


Monday 5th
TV NEWS: More4

From today, More4’s transmission hours are extended. More4 will now start broadcasting from 9am everyday, and cease transmitting around 2am. However, don’t get too excited, as most of the extra hours transmissions are filled with daytime TV repeats like “How Fat Is Your Husband”, “You Are As Ugly As You Think”, “Property Scrabble” and its numerous offspring and breathren! :rolleyes:

Why Is There So Much Rubbish On TV? – 9:30-11:30am
I’ve highlighted this one-off documentary before, but stupid scheduling by Channel 4 usually meant that most people weren’t able to see it. Here’s another chance to catch this genuinely intelligent and thought-provoking two-hour documentary about TV programming. From the 1950’s through to 2005, TV personalities, programme makers, writers and directors, plus various press and media luvvies discuss the changing face of television, and look at what shows have caused viewers to praise and those shows that have caused viewers to moan about. Despite the early-morning timeslot, this documentary does contain some swearing and occasional scenes, which makes it unsuitable for under-12’s. (It’s aimed at teenagers doing Media Studies in High schools.) Recommended! (Channel 4)

NEW: Galactica 1980 – 10:00-11:00am
Weekday repeat of the rarely-seen spin-off from the original sci-fi show “Battlestar Galactica”, from the 1970’s. After finally discovering Earth, the remaining space-travellers aboard the Galactica discover the Cylons in close-range, and are forced to take evasive action, so set about on a reconnaissance mission. However, a TV journalist latches on to the Galactica crew, and starts poking around, discovering valuable facts that could easily be given to the Cylons, for a hefty reward. Although Lorne Greene appears, the rest of the original cast were jettisoned, and Kent McCord, Barry Van Dyke, Robyn Douglass, Richard Lynch, and Pamela Susan Shoop were given the leading roles. It’s considered by many fans to pretty awful TV, but as it’s been so rarely seen in the UK, this may be worth a watch. Thankfully, the show died on its arse, and was pulled after about twenty episodes. Episodes are given a same day repeat, at 6:00pm. (Bravo)

NEW: Shaun The Sheep – 3:45-4:00pm
Start of an all-new British animated series from Aardman Animations, starring Wallace & Gromit cohort Shaun the sheep, previously seen in the 1995 animated short “Wallace & Gromit: A Close Shave”. There are a massive 40 episodes that have been made, with each one being approximately five minutes long, airing throughout the entire month of March. :clap: Each one is practically silent (bar music, and a few sound effects), and BBC1 are airing them in double-bills, every weekday at the same time. The good news, is that each double-bill is repeated the next weekday morning, at 8:15am over on BBC2 (meaning Friday afternoon episodes will be repeated the following Monday morning). The same high-standards have been followed by all the team at Aardman, and although the series is aimed at 5-7 year olds, I suspect there will still be plenty of little knowing jokes for adults to enjoy as much. Episode 1 re-aquaints viewers with Shaun (or introduces him to those of you who haven’t heard of him before) and his new doggy pal Blitzer – so-called because he was a dog owned by an old war-veteran! (The “Blitz” – see?!) Anyway, this should be something for everyone to enjoy, irrespective of age, and as such, it’s…. Highly Recommended. (BBC1)

NEW: Alias – 4:00-5:00pm
For the first time in the UK, one channel has bought the rights to all five seasons of this much-loved action/spy drama, that introduced Sydney Bristow to our screen in 1998, and her hidden life with SD-5. Now, here’s your chance to catch every single episode, at the same time, on the same channel, over the remainder of the year, starting right back with the first part of the Pilot Episode (which ran to just 77-minutes including ads, but which has here been split-up into two separate 38-minute episodes instead). Episodes continue every weekday at the same time. Thankfully, an uncut evening repeat is also being aired, at the more respectable time of 8:00pm, each weekday night. If you can’t afford the DVD’s, and aren’t too fussed about seeing the show in Widescreen, this is the best chance you may have of seeing this show. Just remember to pay close attention though! (Bravo)

NEW: Slings And Arrows – 12:00-12:45am
If you’ve never seen this show (other than on Artsworld itself, over the past two or three years), then this is quite simply Must See TV! :clap: Quite possibly one of the finest Canadian dramas ever made, and certainly a show that deserves to be seen by as many people as possible. Paul Gross, from “Due South” fame, stars as over-worked theatrical director Jeffrey, of the Theatre Sans Argent (Theatre Without Money!): a place where nothing works correctly, the staff don’t get paid, the utilities are constantly being cut-off due to non-payment, and no one wants to see their productions. Yet, in spite of all of this, the small cast of theatrical stars, are determined to make their productions work, no matter what the cost to themselves or their sanity. But when their lead actor is killed in a hideously-funny accident, and Jeffrey begins his second nervous breakdown, the cast and staff are forced into making some very difficult decisions. If you enjoyed “Extras”, “Action” or “Entourage” and enjoy the clever, intelligent and sophisticated wit of “Frasier”, then you’ll have a bit of an idea of what to expect. With only 3 seasons ever made, and each seasons lasting just 6 episodes each, here is your chance to see an absolute gem of a show, that has stupidly remained buried in the TV schedules. It’s rude, crude and hilarious, and if you don’t split your sides by the end of Episode 1, then you have no sense of humour at all! Contains very strong language (including the c-word on occasions), and some nudity (male and female), this is adults-only material, but it’s a corker! Watch out for the name of the truck that kills the actor, at the end of the episode, as it’s a beautifully clever in-joke, that sits alongside some of the best material like “Police Squad” and “The Naked Gun”! Episodes air Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesday nights, at approximately Midnight. Also showing in Hi-Def, and in a rarely seen 2.20:1 Widescreen format for a TV drama! Do not miss this show under any circumstances! Highly Recommended! (Sky Arts)

NEW: The Sopranos – 11:05pm-12:10am
Season 6 comes to terrestrial television, having already aired last year on E4. Tony is in the proverbial doggy-doo again, as he has to come to terms with the family and “the family” both being put under intense scrutiny, as the FBI start to piece together their case in the trial of Johnny Sack. Expect very strong language, very strong violence and explicit sexual material as always, as the first of 12 episodes air, before the final part of Season 6 comes to E4 and Channel 4 towards the end of the year, and closes the book on the Soprano household forever! (Channel 4)


Tuesday 6th
Star Trek: The Next Generation – 11:10am-Noon

Random episodes are being slotted in to the mid-morning schedules, by the BBC. This week, episodes can be seen today and on Wednesday only. (BBC2)

NEW: Smith – 10:00-11:00pm
Start of a new US crime drama (yes, another one), but with Ray Liotta in the lead role, as the head of a gang of professional thieves who deal only in spectacular, well-honed and high-risk heists. The bigger the risk, and the higher the reward, the more chance Smith and his crew are behind the crime! :D Family man Bobby “Smith” Stevens (Liotta), is an ordinary American family man, with a loving wife and daughter. As far as his family is concerned, he’s just a well-rounded, well-meaning, high-earning businessman. But little do they know, that all of his exclusive trips across the USA and Europe, are actually nothing more than background cover for his real profession – one that the law is determined to put an end to, one way or another. Some strong crime violence, but an excellent US drama that has taken a long time to get into the ITV4 schedules. Episodes repeated each Sunday at 9pm. Highly Recommended. (ITV4).

NEW: Outrageous Fortune – 10:00-11:00pm
Brand-new to the UK, this is a New Zealand comedy drama show, about a family of ex-cons desperately trying to go straight, but finding that being back in the real world after lengthy stints in prison, a lot, lot harder than expected, especially in their sleepy little town, where everyone knows everyone else, and where everyone knows everything! Could be an interesting new addition to your weekly schedules. Episodes will probably be given a weekly repeat on Saturday or Sunday nights, but no concrete decisions have yet been made by Living. :( Check the show out, and see what you think. From what I’ve heard, it does contain some occasional strong swearing, and bits of nudity too! (LivingTV)

Law And Order: Special Victims Unit – 11:00pm-Midnight
Repeat of Season 2 of the long-running and uncomfortable US crime drama, that deals only with sexually-motivated and sexually-violent crimes. Harrowing and disturbing viewing, but stellar stuff! Contains some adult material. For fans or interested drama enthusiasts, Season 1 can be seen on Hallmark, each weeknight at 11:00pm, from tomorrow evening. Both Seasons were not made in Widescreen, and are aired in their original 4:3 formats. (Five)


Wednesday 7th
NEW: The Jasper Carrot Show – 9:00-9:35pm

Repeat run of his classic 1970’s comedy series, originally aired on ITV, before Jasper really hit the big-time. Some of his early stuff is a little sexist and racist by modern tastes, but nothing overtly distasteful. Bear in mind when it was originally aired, and you shouldn’t be too offended. Even now, some of his early stuff is still superb. Recommended. (ITV3)


Thursday 8th
Everybody Hates Chris – 6:30-7:00pm

Repeat run of Season 1 of this cult US comedy, based on the life of black comedian Chris Rock. Episodes will be shown every weekday, at the same time. Fans will be glad to hear that Season 2 is going ahead, and will be shown by Five and Paramount later this year. (Five)

FILM: The Punisher (18) – 10:00pm-12:25am
Enjoyable, if flawed, re-imagining of the comic book character. When undercover FBI special agent Frank Castle is targeted for assassination, he sees his family brutally slain, whilst out on a family picnic. Managing to survive, Castle goes undercover as a nihilistically violent and unremorseful one-man vigilante, to track down the person behind this heinous act. Showing in the uncut, original US and UK cinema version, not the longer US Director’s Cut, this is a darkly intriguing thriller, that despite its lack of plot, and some far-fetched developments, make for an intriguing two-hours or so of entertainment. The film is very, very violent, and some scenes may be off-putting to some viewers, but if you are willing to take the film for what it is (and nothing more), then it’s not that bad. Certainly superior to the awful 1989 Australian version, starring Dolph Lundgren. A sequel is currently in the works. Strong language, scenes of sadistic and brutal violence, and scenes that may upset some viewers. Showing uncut, and in the original 1.85:1 widescreen ratio. (Five)

NEW: Without A Trace – 10:35-11:35pm
All-new Season 5 episodes, of this FBI-based missing persons drama, get their first UK showing, courtesy of More4. (Apologies – but this series actually started last Thursday evening, and I missed it. This is the weekly repeat showing! New episodes are first shown on Friday nights at 9:00pm!) Channel 4 viewers can see this series later in the year. (More4)


Friday 9th
NEW: The Closer – 10:00-11:05pm

Apologies once again. This is all-new Season 2 episodes (which are not currently expected to air on Channel 4 at all), but this is actually episode 2. Episode one was aired the very night I wrote this Update. Sorry, folks! :eek: Anyway, if you want to, this show follows the exploits of the Priority Homicide Division, headed-up by new staff member Brenda Lee Johnson (actress Kyra Sedgewick), as she has to deal with sexism from the rest of her team who are not keen on her being placed in charge, over a preferred male colleague. However, behind that Southern drawl of hers, she manages to see things the rest of the squad frequently overlook, and thus, manages to impress them. Tonight, a juror in the trial of an infamous mobster is found discovered slain, and Brenda has a family surprise in store, when her antagonistic mother appears unannounced on her doorstep. Enjoyable and provocative crime drama, that deserves more respect from Channel 4. No weekly repeats of this show, I’m afraid. (More4)

FILM: Amityville II: The Possession (18) – 12:00-1:35am
Uncut transmission of this strange, but effective horror movie, from Italian director Damiano Damiani, that will send you off to bed feeling very uncomfortable indeed! Very loosely linked to the original “The Amityville Horror” movie, in that the film follows a family who move into a haunted house. Other than that, the film is strictly a dark, uncompromising tale, that borders on the exploitational side of things. Seeing as this was made nearly 25 years ago, and was critically slated, time appears to have improved the way it is seen by moviegoers. Not for all tastes, and you may give-up before the final half-hour or so, but try to bear with it. The special effects are very, very gruesome, so the easily offended should stay clear of this film, but if you like your films on the grim and gory side, and aren’t too worried about plot cohesion, then this may be right up your alley. I should warn you, that the film includes scenes that castigate the Christian faith, and an extended sequence involving the a family (and children) being brutally slaughtered. As such, this film does contain explicit scenes of gory violence, and scenes that may offend many viewers, on taste and decency grounds! Be warned, this is not pleasant viewing! Showing in the correct 1.85:1 widescreen format. (BBC1 – Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland viewers may find the film rescheduled or even replaced, because of the content!).


And there ends, another TV Update for you all. As this is a monthly thing now, here’s a brief list of shows that you can all be looking forward to seeing over the next few weeks or so.

Stargate SG1 – Complete rerun of the first 8 seasons. (Sky 1)

Stargate Atlantis – Complete rerun of the first 2 seasons. (Sky 1) Season 2 should come to Five later in the year. They do own the rights, but no transmission schedule has been decided upon yet.

Third Watch – Alas, still no news on when FX will be airing Seasons 4 through 6. Sorry about this. I’m as eager as many of you to see this show uncut, but despite several requests, FX aren’t giving me any info on this much-loved US drama.

Sue Thomas F-B-Eye – Enjoyable comedy crime show, based on the real-life exploits of a blind FBI agent. (Hallmark)

Tru Calling – The very short-lived Season 2, gets a repeat of the six episodes that were filmed. (Sky 1 and 2)

Jake 2.0 – Repeat of this fun sci-fi adventure show, about a young man who is accidentally enhanced by Nano technology, and is sent into dangerous missions, that would be too harmful for ordinary humans. (Sky 1)

Lastly, I’ve also discovered that Season 2 of “Dead Like Me” is being released to UK Region 2 DVD, towards the end of this very month! Extras will include audio commentaries, behind-the-scenes featurettes, a documentary looking at the entire show, interviews with the cast, an on-screen diary by lead-actress Ellen Muth about her experiences on the show, and a few other bits too! Price is expected to be around £30 online, with a Recommended Retail Price of about £45, for the 15-episode, 5 disc set! Likely BBFC certificate, will be a 15, for strong language, and adult humour.

Hope you’ve enjoyed this month’s update, and I hope you are all well. See you next month, as we head into April, and the Spring TV seasons starts to be unveiled!

I watched season one on living TV does that mean that I missed some episodes if I watch season 2 on Channel 5?

because of the time clash of the second episode with 24 I missed the first two episodes shown last night, however it is repeated on Friday night at 11:50pm if I remember correctly.:)

Hi People,

Pags - Yes! If you watched "Grey's Anatomy" on LivingTV, you've only seen the first nine episodes of Season 1, and have missed episodes 1-13 inclusive. Sorry. :(

Everyone else - mucho good news! :clap:

Grey's Anatomy - if you can't watch the Sunday night double-bills, every week Five are doing a double-bill repeat, late night on Saturday nights, around 11:50pm. :clap:

House (Season 3) - an official start-date is now on the blocks, and it's not long to wait! :clap: Pencil in your diaries Thursday 23rd March, at 9pm, folr the first episode, and every Thursday night thereafter at the same time!

New US dramas coming to the UK this week, or very soon:
- Shark: Naval crime drama with James Woods, Jeri Ryan and Alexis Cruz, starts Thursday 23rd March at 10pm.
- 3lbs (or Three Pounds): Short-lived US medical drama, lasting just 8 episodes, with Stanley Tucci, Indira Varma, and Griffin Dunne, starts on BBC1 on Sunday 11th March at 10:50pm.
- Kidnapped: Another short-lived US drama, this one about the kidnapping of a self-made millionnaire, starts its six-episode run from Tuesday 13th March, at 10:00pm on Channel 4 (with weekly repeats on E4 only, every Friday night). The series stars Timothy Hutton, Dana Delany, Will Denton, Jeremy Sisko, Delroy Lindo, Mykelti Williamson and Linus Roache.
- Vanished: By name, and by US scheduling, as this conspiracy drama with Ming-Na, John Allen Nelson and Rebecca Gayheart, lasted just 13 episodes, of which only 9 were shown on US TV. A second season is highly unlikely, but Five will be airing the show from September/October 2007.
- Six Degrees: This fared even worse, across the Pond! :eek: Lasting a mere 13 episodes, with only the first six actually being shown at all. A new relationship drama with Bridget Moynahan, set around six New York singletons, died on its proverbial bottom, with ITV1 having bought the rights. Don't expect this to be given a decent sheduling!
- The Nine: What sounded like a really promising idea (that of each episode depicting ten minutes of a hostage situation, with at least nine hostages being taken on each occasion, hence the title of the series), has again been cancelled in the USA. Starring Kim Raver, Chi McBride, Scott Wolf, John Billingsley, Owain Yeoman, Lourdes Benedicto and Jessica Collins, this show has only had six episodes shown in the US, and no plans are in the works to show the remaining ones either on TV or via online services. Five plan to air this show, in the Autumn, and are keen to obtain the rights to all 13 episodes!
- Studio 60 On The Sunset Strip: A very hit and miss show, according to US TV ratings, despite much critical acclaim, the new drama about the inner-workings of a TV channel from "The West Wing" creator Aaron Sorkin, doesn't appear like it will make it much further. After the initial run of six episodes, a futher 13 have been ordered, and it is hoped that a final 3 more will be allowed to complete one whole season. However, viewing figures have generally been average at best, simply because - like Sorkin's previous shows - it requires viewers to really pay close attention to all the dialogue, characters and plotlines. At the moment, More4 own the UK transmission rights to the show, but no scheduling details have yet been decided upon, but it sounds like they will be stripping across the Spring/Summer holidays. There is a slim chance that a late-night transmission of the show, across 13 consecutive (or near-consecutive) nights, may be planned towards the very end of the year, for Channel 4 viewers.

The new series of Cold Case returns to our screens on Sky one on Thursday 22.3.07 at 22.00 hrs (straight after Bones :thumbsup: )

Unfortunatly this means that Rescue Me is being moved to the graveyard shift - on Sunday 25.3.07 at 23.00 hrs straight after Lost (so I suppose it still could be called a prime slot)

What with House and Shark starting the same day Thursdays is suddenly becoming very busy.

Hi,

DEXTER will be on FX, but they've pulled the show from the schedules for the moment. I think it'll probably now start in April, along with new NCIS, and a few other shows too. :)

NEW: Alias – 4:00-5:00pm
For the first time in the UK, one channel has bought the rights to all five seasons of this much-loved action/spy drama, that introduced Sydney Bristow to our screen in 1998, and her hidden life with SD-5. Now, here’s your chance to catch every single episode, at the same time, on the same channel, over the remainder of the year, starting right back with the first part of the Pilot Episode (which ran to just 77-minutes including ads, but which has here been split-up into two separate 38-minute episodes instead). Episodes continue every weekday at the same time. Thankfully, an uncut evening repeat is also being aired, at the more respectable time of 8:00pm, each weekday night. If you can’t afford the DVD’s, and aren’t too fussed about seeing the show in Widescreen, this is the best chance you may have of seeing this show. Just remember to pay close attention though! (Bravo)

I can't seem to find this. I'm a VirginMedia (formerly Telewest) user and I've never watched Alias properly, just the odd episode here and there, so I'd love to be able to watch this straight through. I know that I should be about 7 episodes missing as I've only just found out that its on but i looked on RadioTimes.com and saw that it was airing on Bravo+1 at 5-6pm an 9-10pm. I've checked the TV Guide on AVForums and it's not listed. Its also not showing on my on screen guide. Anyone know why this is? or if I'm just stupid?

Bravo are very hit or miss with their EPG scheduling - they show both Xena and Hercules on the EPG and then show football !!!

I'd never noticed any problems like that before. Surely it can't be too hard to keep on top of it from their end surely.
