    this show looks hot. I have read all the books and loved them.

    When will this be shown in NZ? Who’s picking it up?

  • Rachel

    HBO screened the first episode on September 7, and it has already been given a second season.

    Consiering it is HBO I say it would be tv3/4 or even tv1

    Gutted they recast the black chick though, new one no where near as funny.

  • I’m loving it. It’s going to be hard to find an audience here, though, because they’re hour long episodes and quite slow-paced. I suspected at one point that they’re turning each chapter of the book into an hour of television. Despite all that, it has us hooked.
