Re: "The Stranger" - early Australian sci-fi rediscovered

I've been watching this over the past few days and so far enjoying it (just finished ep 3 yesterday).

Re: Programmes that kept going for no real reason

Yeah, it's even happenned here in Canada with the CBC who have had shows run for years and years and you wonder why they're still on the air.

Re: Britbox - UK version

If it's anything like the Canadian version, I'd give it a chance before you totally write it off. The Canadian version started off mildly ok but in the last 6 months or more they've been adding a whole bunch of content that I never expected them to add. I think the lack of some content has to do wit...
