    Unfortunately all the crappy old played before movies rear their ugly heads again at Xmas time..

  2. Disappointing to see Hawaii Five-O taken off the air again part way through season 3. Do you have any idea when Hawaii Five-O will return?

  3. It’s hard to fathom the reasoning behind TV3’s programming of the series. It’s been in and out of the schedule so often it’s a wonder fans can still find it. TV3 is actually interrupting the fourth season, with ep 8 screening Sunday. Given the enduring appeal of NCIS and CSI on 3, H5O is the kind of show that should work. The network needs to pair it with the right stablemate and let it build over a year. Hopefully, this is its strategy for 2015, as it will effectively have two seasons in the vault it could run back-to-back. The fact it’s not running H5O out over summer, and the show’s continuing popularity in the US, suggests the network still has faith in the series’ potential. So fingers crossed …

  4. Radar Across the Pacific was in no way HD. They’re pulling a fast one on us!
