Well the Frinks have finally decided to spring for Digital Cable. In a coldly calculated move, our local cable company replaced The Sundance Channel with a religious channel! The only way to get Sundance now is to subscribe to their digital cable service. So we bit the bullet & subscribed.
I really do like it, I must say. The Discovery Science, Discovery Civilization and History International channels are addicting!
But best of all: After exploring their website, I’ve discovered that, beginning** April 18**, Thursday nights on BBC-America will have an unbeatable line-up*! Check it out:
[ul][li]at 7PM they showThe Young Ones– a hysterical show…Monty Python’s surrealistic humor with an '80s “punk” attitude.[/li][li]followed byMen Behaving Badlyat 7:40PM-- not to be confused with the lame Americanized version…this one’s actually funny![/li][li]and at 9PM is Manchild – a new BBC comedy about 4 single men in their 40s who are trying to recapture their youth. One of the stars of the show is Anthony Stewart Head, who played Giles on Buffy the Vampire Slayer.[/li][/ul]
This line-up definitely makes the upgrade to digital cable worth it. Especially since rerun season on network TV will be starting soon! But since I’m new to this channel, I’m wondering: Are there any other BBC-America shows that are worth a look?
