Nice to see the Aussies know their proper place


All beer swilling yobboes-whinging pom jokes aside, welcome monzac.

Didn't John Cleese say about (the American) independence day that it was celebrating the colonies decision to do something themselves?

Thanks for the good cheer everyone, perhaps excepting bobwilson who... oh never mind... reddygirl is right about the way the ABC lets quality slip through her fingers, but I'm not throwing money away on cable, not even for QI... well... I might reconsider if all past seasons were shown.

Hi monzac, welcome aboard! And don't worry about bobwilson, it's just his way of being friendly ...

As for getting the show broadcast in Australia, that would be above the elves' salary level (insofar as payment in biscuits can be considered to be a salary). But I dare say the Management (tugs forelock) would respond favourably if lots and lots of money were offered by an Australian TV station!

While we wait for that to happen, the first three seasons of the show are available on DVD, so that might be a worthwhile investment.

Dvds, certainly, good investment. Just hopeful of current shows. It's the same with Clue. Having the dvds and so on is great, but I feel a bit tragic listening to them in lieu of the shows as broadcast to air... Only joshing, I love them at any time, but they have the lack of availability of illicit substances.

Biscuits can be arranged for the elves. Australian TV stations will need to be spoken to eftsoonest.

But why do it for ourselves when someone else has already done it for us?

Well it's come to this. I've signed the petition to get QI on US tv, and... well... we've begun downloading the available series. It's joy unalloyed!

If I write an inane comment here, does that make me post-coyttl?

Now I've gotta change my user ID. D'oh! :)

If you really feel the need to do so (and I wouldn't bother if I were you because this lot will undoubtedly find some kind of smutty innuendo wherever it is to be found) send me a PM and I'll change it for you so you don't have to re-register.

Ehm, it's okay. I'll live with it. I'm familiar with 'those types'. :) I've often been called one of them. Unjustly, of course.
