  1. I almost never watch Drama’s when they’re actually screened. Because I can never keep up with all the different timeslots and days…. and they’re usually out of order… Or they chuck in random old episodes to confuse you…
    I just wait for the DVD most of the time.
    I love Bones, but They’ve lost me as a viewer.

  2. @Jason
    2 hours of Home and Away in Melbourne because there was no home and away last Thursday due to the AFL.

    Home and away is best watched 1 episode at a time. At the most 2 episodes in a row is tolerable. Anymore than that it really feels disjointed.

    Seven need to do better a scheduling Home and Away. I enjoy the footy but think the AFL could do better on how they fixture games. Not interested in watching footy on Thursday nights and Sunday nights.

  3. @tvf Network 7’s treatment of all dramas is atrocious. They favour reality for advertising revenue and the no brain required to follow plot lines and decent character development.
    Similar fate has affected other overseas and local dramas.

  4. “and a brilliant episode of Fargo…”

    Brilliant all right !

    Great to see that Deputy Molly survived – the show just wouldn’t be the same without her.

    Well, Lester is turning out to be quite the scheming weasel.
    Guess he feels he deserves a break after all those years of being downtrodden….
