[quote=""SonjaMarie""]Just to warn you, some of those if not all of them do not allow people from other countries to watch the shows online. I.E, you have to be in the UK to watch the UK shows.

It's true, I tried it before and always get the message "you have to be within the UK to watch ....." BBC has it and Channel4 as well.
Pity !

Just about to watch TDW on repeat, as I fell asleep on the first showing :( . It looked really good.

I just watched An Old Fashioned Thanksgiving. It was written by Lousia May Alcott...I thought as much, but wasnt sure until her name came up on the credits. It was nice enough. Its amauzing to see how her early stuff set the tone for Little Women.

It's not upcoming or even airing but did any of you watch Xena, Cleopatra 2525 or Hercules? I know they were cheesy but as a teenager I loved them and I ran across them searching the internet the other day.

I used to watch some of Xena, Hercules and a few of Cleo. But I wasn't a big fan.
