The Daily Teaser — 5-4-2016

Hmmm … 

I’m something of a fan of the series, Gotham: although it’s not one I’ve written about.

Something that annoyed me with the first series, here in the UK?

Was the fact that the air dates Channel Five selected for it matched its US air dates, very closely.

And included a mid-season break: something that’s common with US TV stations, but not here in the UK.

That break was something I found incredibly irritating.

And, if events are anything to go by, something other fans have found annoying, to the point of saying so.

Leading to Channel 5 delaying broadcast for a few weeks, in order to air Gotham series 2 in open complete block.

Well done C5!

Well … 

ALMOST Well Done.

Last night, Gotham took a one week holiday.

So Channel 5 could show a Neighbours special.

Thanks for that … … … … … … 


But let’s move on, shall we?
