Radio Free Skaro #55 – Last of the Time Snores


Our last commentary episode also marks a first, in that the Third Guy called in from London with tales of errant police boxes, playbills aplenty and dodgy internet connectivity. Oh yeah, and we commented on Last of the Time Lords, and were none too kind to it, sending it to bed without diner and making it think long and hard about what it had done.

On a tangent, George Stroumboulopoulos went and geeked out on The Hour this week about Life on Mars, urging his viewers to download it off the Net and watch it (since CBC, of course, doesn’t air it). I think it must be his current favourite show.

Chris Burgess says:

I’d seen it, flipping channels, once or twice on Showcase but never really stopped long enough to watch. The last time I saw it on there I didn’t watch because it’s one I hadn’t yet seen (and I had the rest on the computer anyway), but I don’t think I could watch it on Canadian TV. CBC, were they to air it, and Showcase is presumably the same, would likely leave the swearing intact (not there’s really much swearing); however, neither could leave it alone and air it without commercials. Either that means, since each episode is 57-59 minutes in length, they use a 90 minute timeslot and add commercials like crazy, or they edit it for length so as to fit commercials and the show into a one hour slot. Neither is desirable, and it really makes me wish there were more stations like the BBC, able to broadcast things without interruption.
