Jericho's not bad, but doesn't make a lot of sense. Maybe it eventually would have done if it hadn't been cancelled.

Best thing I've watched recently is Mike Tyson Mysteries. A show which makes even less sense, but is very funny if you like their sense of humour.

Which Jericho do you speak of? There was an American one a few years back that just went on and on and I got bored.

I've got my missus hooked on The Darling Buds of May. You can find it on Youtube, if you try hard enough.

I knew she'd like it and she's watched all the Poirot episodes already.

She's rather into Brit TV. Not really surprising. It's a hell of a lot better than North America churns out.

Oh, I was assuming people were talking about the American post-nuclear-war show? Didn't realize there was another one.

Never having watched Poldark I can't comment on that. I thought Jericho was a rip off as you say of Hell on Wheels.

I understand it was the U.S. series that was cancelled.

Thought so. I couldn't quite believe it was the American one and that was how I discovered the other.

Nothing wrong with...what's the expression...slow-burners, but it was painfully slow. Not surprised it was cancelled.

That's one programme I couldn't bring myself to watch, it just sounds a bit too messy.

Me neither- I think you just wasted 14 seconds of your time TP (Tinpusher, not Tootlepootle) - Im sure that the other TP will love you forever though

While doing my 14 seconds of wasted time (as per Stinky) I did see a link to a PBS (U.S. Public Broadcast) site that had episodes from season four. Google may be your friend.
