    TVNZ’s delay in screening Broadchurch seems not to have hurt its first episode ratings at all. And of course it is the kind of show they needed to save for Autumn/Winter rather than throw away over Summer. There’s still a hunger for meaty well-made Brit drama in prime time on free-to-air. More please.

    No surprises Topp Country did great

  • Tania

    I thought Broadchurch was boring … I ended up Googling the Wiki page to see what happens in the end. And can’t stand those stupid Topp Twins – what an embarrassment.
    I was surprised to turn TV3 on at 5pm and see a new episode of The Block Sky High – I wonder if anyone else missed it, not realising it was on?
    I’m looking forward to see who wins the 7:30pm slot on Wednesday, out of House Rules and MKR – I reckon House Rules will.
