    1. I enjoyed Resident Alien too, though I’m a bit peeved I apparently have to get on to Nine’s online service to watch the rest of the series. It’s not on the EPG next Tuesday. I hope the rest of Series 1 eventually gets shown on Free-To-Air.

        1. If I remember correct, the on-air promotion (during Lego Masters ad-break) made reference to a “preview” of Resident Alien, which I thought was a bit odd. I would have to watch back my PVR recording to be any more certain, sorry David.

          1. I can confirm with you that Nine did state on one of the commercials I watched last week that Resident Alien was a “Special preview screening”… which had me thinking straight up that it was a taster to get you on to the online service. I thought it was common knowledge which is why I didn’t bring it up here in the lounge.

  1. The fact that ESA have 4 shows on at the same time highlights the homogeneous feeling one gets when watching FTA. While the content is different, the approach is the same, with the same OTT music and SFX. Old peoples home probably less so, but my point still stands.

        1. Which may be the issue here, great for Endemol now, at the moment the show’s are stable, whilst there’s a little bit of cannibalism with ratings, but if they hit each other too much it means they’ll lose those shows, however if they could maintain what happened last night they’ll be happy for a couple of years to come.
