  1. I still think it’s ridiculous that 7 are sacrificing their HD channel for this. A lot of the shows aren’t, or won’t be shown in HD and those that watch regular 7, which is arguably the best of the 3 channels, will be seeing the low quality versions of their favourite shows.

  2. @Pete

    As you probably know Caprica is set before BSG. You don’t have to have watched all of BSG to be able to watch Caprica. Although it does help to have some knowledge of the BSG universe.

    The second part of season 1 returns in the US on October 5 when it will air behind new episodes of Stargate Universe. No confirmation yet on a 2nd season.

  3. David, any chance to do an interview with the big boys of Foxtel. I reckon they’d be starting to worry with the emergence of all of these new free channels.

  4. To Earthquake ,

    I agree , there is not enough Australian shows.
    A Country practice finished repeating on Hallmark channel a few months ago , now it could be 7TWO’s turn I think. Sons and Daughters / Home and Away are already repeating on 7TWO.
    All the others you mention are worth a rerun too somewhere on freeview. Cop Shop , The Sullivans , Prisoner , The Flying Doctors , Altogether Now , Richmond Hill and many more…
    Wouldn’t it be good if there was a rule that they can’t screen 3 American shows in a row ??
