In the arena.
Shows on this national television channel never start on time, but argh! I knew this would happen again – someone just loves to fiddle around with the scheduling.
Pray tell, who – at the ungodly hours of 12.45am, Mondays – would stay up to watch Jack Bauer save his country? Only two episodes into season six of 24 and they have to do this.
Then our lovely satellite television network makes us exercise our fingers by reshuffling their channel numbers and packages. Along with it, one of my favourite channels gets moved to another package – one to which we are not subcribed to.
No more Hotel Babylon and (reruns of) Later… with Jools Holland then.
Out of the blue, we are greeted with not just one but two Amazing Races – both starting this month. Overload, overload.
This is it. No modern-day heroes cautiously utilising their special abilities; no castaways running about their mystery island.
My days with the idiot box – over.
