  1. And no new Simpsons as predicted as always. Still must illegally download it.

  2. I wonder when TVNZ rights to Disney movies end? it must be soon with Disney+ only 2 months away today YIPPEE 🙂

  3. Skys programme guide has The Rookie on Wednesday 2nd October at 8:30pm, not that I’m complaining after the first season’s extended delay.

  4. D’oh!!! Thanks for the ‘heads-up’, Darren. Duly corrected.
