  1. HYBPA does well as usual, i don’t understand why they need to finish it so early, 10 doesn’t have anything else to show on Monday nights so why not keep it around until the big bash starts in mid December.

    Hopefully next year they can start it in February rather than wait around until Masterchef starts.

      1. Love HYBPA, and what a story it is, given its humble TV beginning early on Sunday nights for 30 minutes. Although, even though ratings are ending, it’s odd doing a year in review special with a month to go still. I think they should end the season with a normal show & then do the year in review as a one-off at the end of December (Ten has repeated the review special around this time anyway).

    1. Yes, agree that Cold Feet should be screened in the Liar timeslot on the main channel, instead of being buried away on 7TWO.
      Looking a little dated now but was one of the first shows of this genre when it first started.
      Am still enjoying it for nostalgic reasons …good to see all the old characters back again.

      1. Unfortunately missed the initial series (missed it due to being younger and out more – ha!) but tuned in to the series last year and worked out many of the gaps. Must make an effort to track down the original series…

  2. Forgot about Criminal Minds being on last night. Hopefully one of us recorded it as can’t stand using +7 for catch up – usually has as many ads as when the show is live to air, takes just as long, if not longer to watch then it would just to watch live and the ads are usually double the volume of the show to the point where I just have to mute and wait.
