Darkplace

Hello again all you luvverly people. :)

Don't know whether this has already been posted, but here goes anyway...

Garth Marenghi's Darkplace is repeated on channel 4 on Wednesday and Thursday, for those that either missed it the first time, or like me wished they'd bunged a tape in.

Arse! This should have been posted in the Film/TV section. Bollocking new board!

Definitely going to change it back.

I'm sure this'll make a certain man in Durham very happy...

Oh and a DVD is on the way (but no release date as yet) but no chance of a second series - it cost to much and had poor viewing figures(apprently 'Garth' is trying to to get the money together to make a film)

Marvellous, I'll get the man with the digi-plan to sort me out a copy.

Great series - fuck Channel Four the usueless, feeble purveyors of shite who think having John Snow pretend he's a burglar in a pantomime after Richard and Judy to promote news is a good idea, and who think the british public should fund their debasing of british culture, the horrible, horrible bastards - shame there won't be a second, ah well, never mind.

Mind you, if they were to give ME a series to horrorise your minds, I could be persuaded to change my tune.  Sorry Garth, but it's a dog eat dog world out there, and I'm a crocodile.

Aaarrggh!

Don't know what channel 4 are playing at, but it seems that it's only going to be on *this* week. I checked the listings for next week, and there's no sign of it.

Bloody bollocking arse! :(

Don't know what's going on.

Different listings say different things. According to my telly book, it's on tonight and tomorrow. Channel 4 listings say it's not on tonight, but on tomorrow. Radio Times listings say it's not on at all, as does Teletext.

Does anyone know what's happening?

Radio Times.co.uk doesn't even mention the bastard, but I FULLY hope it does because surely that means they're gearing up for the DVD and goddamn that was good comedy
