DVR already set. Pity they didn’t take a leaf out of 9’s book and air it on the same day it airs in the US. We are already 3 weeks behind and it will be just about impossible to avoid spoilers. Hopefully they may show a couple of double episodes so we can catch up.

If they want to combat torrents and piracy they need to start offering the shows sooner! I’ve already seen the first two episodes and I don’t trust TV stations in Australia to remain loyal.

I thought last night’s ep was really good. If we are behind can you please put spoiler alerts up before giving anything away. I’ll watch this every week on Thursday’s unlike Survivor where i’m a week behind. That’s why i’m not posting on Survivor threads. Does anyone watch I’m a Celebrity Get Me Out Of Here. I know it’s an old series but i’m enjoying it heaps.

I think Chester Pitts II should win based on name alone… hopefully Ephraim Salaam doesn’t let him down

Omg, FFS channel 7….Greys Anatomy runs friggin 30 mins over so my DVR misses the last bloody 10 mins on the show…..I even set it to record over time.
Can someone pls let me know how this week ended up, would have loved to have seen the NFL or Hipster dudes win this leg….and also, did the theatre guys get the boot? They got diddled with the language barrier for bus…buggger….many thanks for quick recap…muchos grasios!!!
