Make me director of BBC America, and they'll stop playing crap. Guaranteed.
How many sinatures do you think that petition would need?

To my vast astonishment, the little PBS station (WLRN, not the big one) down the road in Miami is showing Kingdom! I happened on it by accident and was floored. They showed the episode with Aeste the guest worker.

So it's out there, and maybe we don't have to wait for BBC America to get off its haunches. Just start bombarding your local PBS station with emails and letters.

Our PBS stations in Maryland don't show any of Stephen's work. They do show the Vicar of Dibley and Keeping Up Appearances and they used to show Chef but they have been doing that for years and I have seen every bloody episode (in fact I own the complete box set for the Vicar and KUA). And for some reason that I will never comprehend, I am constantly assaulted by that dull and boring Judy Dench show, As Time Goes By--no offense to those who enjoy that show, but I just can't bear it.

I wish that they would show Absolute Power or A Bit of Fry and Laurie or any of the Black Adder series but they don't. Its wall to wall As Time Goes By with no end in sight. Somebody help. For God's sake, make them stop!

Godfather -- so true. One of the PBS stations near me has been playing Are You Being Served for at least 18 years. I know PBS has money, despite their incessant whining. They just don't seem to share our ideas about fresh programming.

Absolute Power was on my PBS station the other night. Saturday night @ 11:30, along with The Young Ones and Red Dwarf. Sunday nights Blackadder X-D

The best one of my local PBS's can do is Jeeves and BOFAL every now and then. I think its time to start sending emails to my local stations.

I love the show KINGDOM--all 6 episodes--Stephen Fry has such a lovely voice and he is a really good actor. Jeeves & Wooster--hilarious show. X-D

I wish the UK would make Brit shows on DVD available to American audience a lot faster than they do now. Sometimes one has to wait a number of years before getting a Brit show on DVD. I own quite a few Brit shows on DVDs, it is better than what is on American telly (with a few exceptions) these days, IMO.

SO i emailed my pbs station (which doesn't show any of this stuff you guys are talking about, you lucky lucky ...luckikins.) and they said that they AREN'T PLANNING on having any programming with Mr Fry in it, but that they would submit my request and it would be more likely to happen if I could see about getting some more requests from FRIENDS.

SO HEY YSEBELLA!! SHAYLA!!! ANYBODY ELSE ANYWHERE NEAR SEATTLE??

or, you know what, since i used email they have no way of knowing whether or not i really live in thier area. IF ANY OF YOU WRITE TO MY STATION, I WILL WRITE TO YOURS. deal? mine is kcts. winky winky.

sorry for the rotten all-cappage.

I have circumvented this by buying a region-free dvd player, it was less than $100 from Amazon. I bought Kingdom immediately from amazon.uk and I just got the Torchwood dvd's over Thanksgiving. Other than the crappy exchange rate right now it works great. You don't get the cleaned up for american broadcast television versions and you get it a lot quicker. I suggest everyone get one.
