Default Decent Telly at Last!

recently came across a cracking website for those of you missing British television or sick of seeing Monty Python reruns on BBC America. You can download all types of programmes new and old and some shows are posted a day after they air. The files are in bittorrent format, so you will need to download a small programme to transfer the files. I think they have a limited number of users, but they boot people (with bad sharing ratios) every couple of weeks to make room for new users. The site is called uknova followed by the obvious. Enjoy!

Cool Re: Decent Telly at Last!

We get our HBO channel on digital and apart from showing 'Extras' with Ricky Gervais, there is another British programme which my husband found which we can get 'on demand'.

It's called the 'Sex Inspectors'. I haven't seen it (but my husband found it very interesting LOL!). It's where the 'Sex inspectors' visit couples and discuss what is going wrong with their sex lives and give them remedies/ideas on how to improve it.....

OMG! I saw one of those last year when I went back for a few weeks. They discuss what's going wrong with their sex lives after filming them doing it and watching! They put cameras up all through the house to film them at it. They even show some of the footage on the program, and even though it is blurred, they're obviusly not as good as the American 'blurrers' as you can still pretty much see it all going on... :scared:
