What happened to me this week that was TV related??

-Well for starters, my Sky+ decided to start playing up on me, and deleted my series links for both Moving Wallpaper and Echo Beach which means I’ve missed an episode of each.

-I’ll try and go back to them, but I hate missing out on vital details and Moving Wallpaper has quite a nice bit of attention to detail that might go over my head now.

-The strike is now almost 10 weeks deep, so how come Las Vegas is on Episode 16??? Just how many episodes did they film before the scribes put pens down? Keep it coming team, its the kind of fluff I love!

-I won’t believe this rumour until I’m standing in line to watch it! Jason Bateman spoke to Kristin Veitch about a potential Arrested Development Movie. Read more about it here.

-Sky really got a thumbs up by putting the Season 4 premiere of Lost on Sky Anytime, uninterrupted and in HD. It means I watched it last night,and I can prepare for Ghana v Nigeria tonight properly, without worrying about Jack or Kate (not that I care about Jack).

-Speaking of and ABC TV studios, Jeff Zucker and NBC Universal may get all the press, but its ABC Television and Walt Disney Studios that quietly cut the best international deal, and move the TV business model forward outside of Hollywood. I mentioned BSkyb’s deal with them earlier, but this week they also tied up deals with Tiscali and TF1, the second allowing the French broadcaster to broadcast Lost one day after its US transmission date. The only real way to kill downloading is to give the people an alternative whereby they don’t have to get up off their couches/sofas/chaise longue.

Finally, I’ll leave you with Sarah Silvermans confession video to her husband Jimmy Kimmel. It would seem she has a little thing going on with Matt Damon, watch the video to find out more.

Moving Wallpaper/Echo Beach

13 01 2008

Last week I stood up in the office and announced my plans for the evening, and was laughed at by most of my colleagues. My plan was to go home and watch an hour of ITV1. Thats right, a solid hour of the nations favourite network. One of my co-workers told me how he had tried to watch a comedy the previous Friday starring Mark Addy, and was frustrated because he would no longer have that particular hour available to him again throughout his entire lifespan.

But I ploughed on regardless, getting home on Thursday….and promptly falling asleep. Luckily I had Sky+’ed both of the shows I was meaning to watch and just got round to watching them this afternoon. I can go into work tomorrow and tell everyone that the joke is on them, because the combo of Moving Wallpaper and Echo Beach makes for marvelous tellybox watching.
