Is it true? Has Channel 4 finally decided to stop screwing with the West Wing schedule? No more “Oh, we can’t show any series on E4 over the summer, it would interfere with our 24/7 Big Brother shite”? No more putting WW on C4 at 3.20 in the morning? Holy fo’schnizit.
And whats this? A whole channel dedicated to sensible shows, like West Wing, the Sopranos, Curb Your Enthusiasm? Is that not what E4 was supposed to be, before it became totally FriendsTV/BigBrotherTV?
And what is this post doing? I can count seven silly questions so far. That’s totally unnecessary. And must be stopped.
But yes. This new channel (More4) looks interesting. It’s just a pity that they start showing series six of the West Wing two weeks after it came out on DVD. A small lack of business sense there, Channel 4. But we’ll forgive you. Just because you’re opening your new channel with a quick session of kicking Uberstamfurher Blunkett. With quotes about it like:
“Tory ministers used to find scandal in low places. New Labour prefers to get its trotters into the top trough. This film explores how Blunkett became a metaphor for Tony Blair’s decadent regime.”
