Should we be surprised if Mr Bedingfield is being escorted into the finals by 4 young girls instead of 3?
We’re contemplating introducing a new forum on Throng for a bit more general discussion about television but would like to get some feedback on whether or not this might be something useful.
Happy to take on board any other content suggestions you might have.
When Choice TV announced it was bringing back Days Of Our Lives many would have been pleased with this as it had been 3 years since TVNZ removed it and The Young & The Restless from our screens.
We were also promised, and this was mentioned on Throng and in TV Guide, that episodes were going to be 6 months behind America.
However, it emerged from the end credits of yesterday’s first episode back that we are viewing episodes from 2011, and not 6 months ago.
To further add to this I asked Choice TV, via Twitter, why they said 6 months behind America and they replied back that they meant to say 6 months behind Australia.
In checking the soap recaps at SoapCentral.com it seems that we are 18 months behind America’s screening
So would Choice TV like to explain why the public and myself have been told two different periods in time when the reality is that we are watching episodes that aired in America 18 months ago.
And just out of curiosity I’ve checked Nine’s website and they today aired episode no. 11709, that originally aired in America on November 4, 2011.
(Update: 7:05pm, 12/3/2013 – After talking with Choice TV on Twitter it is now my belief that in TV Guide and on Throng the mention of America may have been incorrect and that they meant to say Australia instead, which is only some 2 months ahead of NZ but is still airing material originally broadcast in America in 2011).
With all the talk of the government selling assets at the moment, how is News Corp’s ditching of $815m worth of shares in Sky Television going to impact on the availability of capital for investment?
Given the opportunity, would you rather purchase shares in a power company or a television company?
No doubt the Sky TV shares are going to get snapped up but the big question is, by who? Will it be another media company? Should TVNZ buy back in? Or will it be another clueless hedge fund that will mine it, and its customers, for every penny they can?
See how you’d get on with these warm up questions and then the actual question at number 4.
1. Who is Ross’ TV Guide addressed to?
2. Phoebe changes her name, what to?
3. Which band sings the show’s theme tune?
4. Which supermodel had a cameo as Joey’s room mate?
Answers after the jump.
This morning TVNZ sent out a press release celebrating the ratings success of Robyn Malcom’s new show, Agent Anna. When we reviewed it we found it pretty hard to watch and while we don’t appear to be alone, the ratings would suggest that people are still watching it.
So, here is a question for those who have seen more than the first episode. Is it really worth watching?
