Well there's Most Haunted on tonight if you know somebody with Sky that you could pop 'round to their house. The new series of ER is repeated on C4 - I always like watching that. Hell's Kitchen if you are really stuck for watching something. The great Distraction on C4 Friday nights. Derren Brown on just before that. Experimental can be quite funny - yes Friday nights on C4 again. But if things go from bad to far far worse there's always the new Big Brother starting up again, but I would rather bang my head against the wall to be honest.

Hope that helps.

Aww, I love Phoenix Nights - making full use outta my dvd box set I can tell ya! There was a prog on Paramount Comedy Channel earlier about Peter Kay - filmed back in 1997. Caught the last half which was quite interesting. Then there was Dave Spikey's stand-up show on afterwards. Although I do like Spikey, he doesn't have anything over Peter when it comes to stand-up.

Ah yes!

Due South was the best thing on TV.

Just annoyed at the fact that the DVD boxset of the series is out in America! :x

Why don't you get your DVD player chipped? Obviously if it's a comp player then I don't think you can. I got my Panasonic one done specially in the Panasonic shop for £80 - leagal of course. If you have a PS2, you can buy the code/region disk. If you can do any of these, then get your wallet out for the box set!! :D

Sounds like an option...

Though I have very little money left so I'll have to get a job over the summer.

Though I want them to release it over here.

Well, you can get a program called VLC to play R1 discs on your comp. I have it as I didn't want to naff about getting it chiped. It works on most discs, but not all. Worth a try as it's free! You can get it here: www.videolan.org Don't say I never give you anything!

Anyway, back on topic.

Now that Hell's Kitchin is finished there is now almost nothing to watch! Lucky for me I at least get Sky One so can watch Enterprise (although that finishes tonight), Tru Calling, Angel (again, finishes tomorrow) and...oh, that's it. Humm, well, there's Frasier on Wednesdays on C4...and that's all that's worth watching on 4 except for Derren Brown. I'd rather burn my eyes out with chillie sauce than sit through Big Brother.

Other than that, it's back to my 200+ DVD collection for entertainment!

I said that to Mum a while back (when Gordon did that other thing). We saw a bit of it and she was quite shocked at the way he talked to his idiots...sorry, staff! But, she watched this last one and has changed her mind.

I was dissapoined...I wanted James to win. :cry:

Oh well, Enterprise finished tonight. Glad they're doing a forth series; it really did get very good over the last 10 episodes.

Just Angel to go tomorrow. Still hoping against hope that it'll be picked up by another station for a sixth season.
