    Crikey that sure is spread out it!

    I think the UK got the best deal where we got 13 chances to see each episode, all in the space of 4 weeks ;)

    Yeah. You also got the last five episode of Transformers: Armada before we did. I'm still irked about that.

    Anyways, yeah. I got this commited to memory, and I got a tape ready. [face_devil]

    I certainly agree that at first blush, it doesn't seem at all fair that they're spreading the shows out across such an interminable timeframe....with it being either a week between single episodes, or the double-header the following night, I still can't help feeling that there's something....rather shoddy and suspect in Teletoon's reasoning or modus operandi here. It does leave you rather scratching your head in utter confoundment, though, doesn't it....because, really, how very difficult *would* it be for them to show one episode each night? We're only talking two minutes here....hardly something that's necessarily interfering with the rest of their programming.... (some of which really *should* be seriously interfered with, ugh....but that's beside the point) :)

    Of course it's just *so* very decent of them to finally relent - or cave in to overwhelming fan pressure and protest, more likely - and *finally* grace us with the CW shorts.... (and that, by the way, was a fine dollop of sarcasm....if I do say so myself) ;) *However*....more to the point....methinks that there's still something rather rotten in the proverbial state of Denmark, is all, when they're spacing the shows out to such an extent. It's *not* fair, and it hardly seems sensible or reasonable, much less justified....just one more thing for us poor long-suffering folks to have to put up with. Ungh....

    Am I glad to be seein' the shorts again, *especially* in the much bigger environs of broadcast TV? Mmmm, yes, certainly so....I don't think anyone could *not* be glad about that. But I still feel that the whole situation for us Canuckleheads has been very much mismanaged, ill-timed, and in general totally bollocksed from the start. Still feels like we've been shafted some....feels too much like we've been given the most maddening runaround....and it hurts. Hrmph....


    Dawn. (who *is*, despite all this, going to spring the surprise of the first CW short on some friends tonight....very likely they know *nothing* of the show, haven't even yet heard of it for *some* unfathomable reason....so this should be fun!....)
