Regarding QI, we are trying.

Petition needs at least 2500 sigs.

I watch a lot of British TV. I get frustrated by BBC America. They cut for commercials. They show mostly boring drek. They censor language and do it unevenly. About the only thing they have showed of a recent vintage has been Doctor Who, Torchwood and a few smutty soaps. I sometimes wonder if they even watch the real BBC or anything else.

I just don't understand why they show Footballer's Wives. I's arse. not even a BBC show either.

They need to show Tribe as well.

Hang on, it is aired over there. By the Discovery Channel (Going Tribal).

It is a shame really that PBS might get Kingdom before it airs on BBC America. In general PBS shows more quality BBC shows then BBC America itself.

...and without the commercials/advertisements.

Don't forget the Nurses program in BBC America. Slutcoms we call them. Now everytime I turn it on it seems I see Ramsey's Kitchen Nightmares. The Friday Night funnies are Little Britain, Ab Fab, and The Office, then repeated. They're ok, I esp like Ab Fab and Little Britain but they've been run a million times. There must be more comedies. They ran one last spring I think, after advertising a "new Friday lineup" including that one about a rather odd town with Dawn French and Jenny Saunders, and a really funny/weird one with quick clips of another sort of odd town, and after one night that show was yanked. (The weird one, not Saunders and I have not seen that one for a long time either unless there weren't many made)
UK Gold would be better than the current BBC America.

Are you Talking about the leaque of Gentleman? That was a good Series. It just really bugs when I see now that PBS is showing show like "Johnathan Creek" and "Absolute Power" And see the BBC America Logo comes up and The First thing that comes to mind was "Hang on don't that Suppose to be On BBC America?" BBC America just not start showing Top Gear. It doesn't make since to me that they can get Top Gear and Not Kingdom or QI.

Once upon a time, BBC America's Friday night line up was The Avengers, The Saint, and The Prisoner. I have four words for that:

FU KING AWE SOME

Now they play shit.

It wasn't League of Gentlemen, I remember that. One sketch in that odd program had some woman who kept yelling to her boyfriend/husband "I want a f***ing BABY!" in public. It was so weird it was funny.
BBC gave me my first taste of Father Ted so I thank them for that. Now I don't know why I bother flipping it on.
