I preferred the apparent ad campaign they had before it when they openly announced the ad was from the 70's and then ran it.

Looks like there is going to be a Dr. Who spinnoff.

http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/5345442.stm

The spinnoff is intended for children, though, but features Sarah Jane.

That's quite fascinating.

I remember when I was watching the Tom Baker episodes of Dr. Who, I had heard somewhere that there was going to be a spin-off involving Sarah Jane and K-9.
I never heard any more about it other than that. The article doesn't mention it directly, but I wonder if this new spin-off has any relation to the earlier idea.

Good question.

No, it doesn't - K-9 & Company (the original's name) was supposed to be another mystery/adventure type of show. This, in addition to being more for kids than Dr. Who, won't feature K-9 (some licensing issue, as I understand).

 

BTW - I have K-9 & Company somewhere, if anyone wants it. It's not awful, but it's not good, either.

Ok. This is a clueless and randomly proffered comment, and I know it's "sweeps"
time, but when do the re-runs stop. Calling them "rebroadcasts" or "replayed by
viewer demand" does not in the slightest conceal that this is in fact regurgitated
ealier episodes because they have nothing newer to show.

I was pretty miffed at the much ballyhooed *new* season of SouthPark last fall
which culminated in an astounding seven episodes. WOW!!! A whole seven shows! Then
they simply started re-running same seven shows over and over ad-nauseum. Blegh.
(although the first of those was really cool. the rest lacked seriously)

I hate sweeps. It's just the same old garbage with some edited in plot twists. No
matter which show you watch. Everytime I turn on the groove tube I'm reminded of this
Pink Floyd line - "Got thirteen channels of shit on the T.V. to choose from."

Aside from NFL football, I haven't really watched anything on the networks in years... HBO original programming is the way to go.

Most of what's on TV is crap. I used to politely tolerate it, but some shows (in particular, "Lost" and "Desperate Housewives") actually make me leave the room. (Yes, I know, some of you love one or both of those; I don't care.
I hate them.)

Thank God for TiVo. The few times I'm in the mood to sit down and watch something on TV, I can turn on a science show recorded off Discovery or a cooking show recorded off Food Network.

Gotta disagree with Ygorl about the NFL, though. Americans don't know how to play football.

I actually find that I watch quite a lot. I like Scrubs, Veronica Mars, Gilmore Girls (though lately, I'm not thrilled by it), CSI, and a few others...

but I never watch anything with commercials.... never!!!!

Ginger and I like the shows about stuff around the house, like interior decorating and painting, to things like how to clean up and re-organize a room. These shows are on Comcast cable here in Seattle on the HGTV channel (Home and Garden TV, I guess).

If it weren't for my other two housemates, I wouldn't have TV (probably)

We find that the internet is a perfectly suitable substitute for television.

Plus we can watch DVDs on the computer as well.

we haven't really missed tv too much. now and then it would be nice to have something on in the background so we just stream something. i can just put on a dvd of a tv show to distract the dogs (cayce watches tv, beaker's just more low key so he doesn't need the time out, just something to chew).

They know how to play American football.  Futbal is a good sport too (I guess), it's more chaotic and loose.  Football is more logical and strategic, placement of where each player is is much more vital.  It's turn based, as oppose to real-time, like soccer is.   It is chess as opposed to marbles.  Ya just can't compare the two.

Crosses fingers ***FOOTBALL*** vs soccer flame war doesn't start. (Or I'll be returning in 2015, in no time)

I think the teams should go out on the field and randomly throw chess pieces and
marbles at each other. The duty of carrying the ball should be given to the mascots.
First one through the gauntlet wins!

I'd watch that.

American football is certainly not a sport I enjoy watching.

Then again, my favorite sport to watch is figure skating... so I guess I don't count for much.

I don't mind watching basketball, though.

Doesn't matter much to me. I'm not interested in soccer at all. I'm even less interested in American "football." I went to the games when I was in college, but that's only because I was in the marching band. Many of us came to the conclusion that a football game was nothing more than a delivery system for the halftime show.
