West Wing on terrestrial!

Just a general public service announcement, because I know there are people out there who, like myself, were very upset when it seemed that the new series of The West Wing was only going to be shown on E4.

It now begins this Friday at 19:35 on Channel 4 - whoop! Can't imagine what caused the change in heart from showing the last series late at night on something like a Tuesday, to putting this one on at prime-time on a Friday, but I ain't complaining.

Continuing on the TV-related theme, I know from episode guides that last night's episode of Six Feet Under, which I taped, is a very scary one in which David gets abducted and nearly killed, and has prompted much debate on US-based discussion boards. I shan't be able to see it tonight, as it's Sci-Fi / Goth night here in Belfast, but I'm hoping to get to watch it either tomorrow morning while I'm waiting for the NTL guy to come and install all my lovely cable-based goodies, or tomorrow evening (if he spoils the first plan by coming too early!). I hope it doesn't make me either a) paranoid that the NTL man is going to kill me or b) unable to sleep the night alone in my flat (depending on when I watch it).

You can always start again! The site I linked for 'Six Feet Under'in my original post has full episode guides for all seasons, so you can read about the episodes you missed there.

(I'd prolly do a geeky nerdy thing and download them fro da net and watch them on my phone while commuting)

I really hated the jump forward between season 2 and 3 and te artificiality of keith getting fired from the police and nate's wife was boring rather than the orritating she was ment to be....

I figured it would be downhill from there - can I take it it managed to snatch victory from the gaws of defeat?

Well, I've always loved it, although I recognise that some of the things that happen in it are unrealistically dark / dramatic. So I can't really comment on the snatching victory theme, as I never felt it had got bad in the first place.

But Keith is a bodyguard to the stars now, which throws up interesting story-lines of its own. And Nate's wife is dead, and probably a lot more interesting that way!

It might be an anti-climax now!

It was not pleasant. But I was more in the 'god, David, stop being such a wuss and sock him one!' camp than the behind-the-sofa one.

Hi! I've just added you back. Sorry about the most recent post in my journal, which is full of unpleasantness to do with vnv_fairy: my posts are usually much nicer than that one. And thanks for the comment you made on his post (whether you had guessed it was about me or not).
