T-Servo: We have this on DVD (multiregion players are hard to find the US, but hardly impossible), and it's farking brilliant. A friend who worked in Blair's office also said it was frighteningly accurate.

If you have internet access, it's easy to find out if your DVD player can be hacked to be region free.

...and by "hacked" I mean "you enter a code the manufacturers programmed into the damn thing to make it region free."

Anyway, BBC America is the worst channel out there. It hardly shows any actual BBC shows, and when it does, it censors, edits, and just plain butchers them.

At least when you sit down and watch something on TLC, You know it's going to be shiat. But BBC America? They take good shows and make them into shiat, when they're not showing X Files or Star Trek.

fark BBC America.

I saw the movie based on The Thick of It recently and it's great. If there was any justice in the world, this Peter Capaldi guy would be a comedy superstar. He's f*cking hilarious.

I refuse to watch the show until it shows up on Netflix or something, because BBC America is a joke. For a while some years ago, they were the only American station broadcasting Trailer Park Boys, and they censored that as well.

Why even air a show you're going to censor if the entire point of the show is about swearing and doing drugs?
