So so so looking forward to Series 2 of The Almighty Johnsons, it really is brilliant. The premise sounded so silly that I nearly didn't bother when they first aired it, but I'm glad I did give it a chance, and honestly would now include it in a list of all-time favourites.
(And the producers in NZ have recently agreed to a third series after all, so there will be even more to come eventually.)

So watch it, everyone! And if you didn't catch Series 1 the first time around, then you can watch or record the marathon this Thursday. :D

When they say "Remastered" for Star Trek:TNG, are they referring to the HD version of Season 1 that's on Blu-Ray?

Looking forward to the Transformers marathon on Jan 1st. Despite the hate Transformers gets for lack of storyline... I still love the visuals & music. :)

@sherds,

Aw, pity you don't see the joy in Almighty Johnsons...but as you say, to each their own. I agree with you though on Ripper Street, I'm quite looking forward to trying that out. :)

Well some people have long theorised that the Ripper was actually a supernatural being... ;)

Seriously I have no idea, I'd assumed it would be on BBC Canada or Showcase, but I'm absolutely thrilled it's on SPACE since the BBC shows always look brilliant in HD on SPACE.

It appears that The Almighty Johnsons are getting a third season! There was an announcement in Dec/13, with filming to start in Jan/13!!!!

Horay!! The series got better and better as it went on through series 2, and it deserves another season.

In some ways, it reminds me of the Iron Druid series of books - the basic premise seems to be that the gods exist because people believed in them. Thus, the native Kiwi gods that were introduced in season 2 fit within the structure of the Almighty Johnson's world.

Any idea when the British Being Human will be back. I don't like the U.S. version.
Finally - someone who agrees wtih me that the US, as usual, does a poor job with BBC concepts! :)

From Wikipedia - unfortunately, no dates yet:
Series five

On 26 March 2012, the day following the series 4 finale, it was revealed that series 5 of Being Human would air in 2013 and comprise six episodes. Michael Socha and Damien Molony will reprise their roles as Tom and Hal respectively. Lenora Crichlow will not be returning for series 5 as the production team feel her storyline has reached a natural conclusion.[12] Kate Bracken confirmed her return to the show in an interview before this series started shooting.[13] The BBC have referred to Alex (Kate) as "Our new ghost", implying that Alex will be a main character from Series 5 onwards[14]

Being Human UK has broadcast two or three episodes so far, in the UK.

I can't find anything on the BBC or Wikipedia websites that indicate how many episodes are planned for series 5. I did read elsewhere that this will be the final series.

Hi Dave I'm confused about some thing I thought Dr. Who was 1hr.15mins. is it only 45 mins. in England so it fits in 60 minutes with commercials?? Ripper St. must be 60 mins. in England because its 1hr.15mins. on SPACE but maybe Dr. Who isn't??
