  1. I wonder when we will be getting season 2 of Glitch and seasons 5 and 6 of Grimm? I think they have got them in Australia … C’mon Netflix 🙂

  2. Yeah, they have seasons 5 & 6 of Grimm in Aussie, Trevor. I was over there last week and noticed. 🙂

  3. There may be an issue with Sky’s rights to the series in this country. It screened all six seasons on The Zone and it would seem a sitter for the Sky Box Sets channel.
