    > Well, there are rumors it will be on DVD by the end of the year, so that's a possibility. Otherwise, once its all been screened, we could probably organize some kind of dub and tape swap for those members who haven't seen it.

    I'm not sure what we can/can't talk about with regard to distributing the series on this messageboard. (so, err ... feel free to delete this post, Mods, I'm only saying this 'cause our City Rep bought it up ... Kitt, it's your fault, OK?) Anyway, I have downloaded the first 10 chapters, and am happy to start some sort of "tree" where I send out, say, discs to three people on the understanding that they then make three copies each, and so on and so on ...

    Obviously, this would be for people who subscribe to either Sky or Hyperspace, but who just happened to miss them on TV, or couldn't download them because of slow internet speed. ;)

    Far be it for me to condone internet piracy. Oh no.

    PM if this sounds like a plan.

    I didn't get to see them the first time around, so I was happy to have the chance to see the first episode tonight. Liked it a lot, and I'm looking forward to seeing the rest.

    For those who didn't know, the series is repeating at 9:30pm each night, with a repeat screening at midnight.

    I have all episodes on VHS and as quicktime movies. Chans unless you have access to a second VCR getting a copy of my tape may be a bit tricky, I can however whack you of a "backup" copy of the full series in quicktime

    Actually, no, I am just very lazy. Better late than never.

    Really excited about Bowie ... flights booked, accomodation sorted etc. etc.

    Some of those times (the Saturday ones) listed contradict those on the official SkyTV.CO.NZ website (I think they got them from CartoonNetwork.COM.AU).

    I have put the schedule that I got from the local SkyTV site on SWNZ at http://swnz.dr-maul.com/moretext.php?request=20040304.

    The error, of course, could possibly be on the NZ SkyTV site, not the Australian Cartoon Network site...does anybody have a copy of the March SkyWatch handy to confirm?

    Yeah, I've checked the SkyWatch, and 7:30pm March 29, not 5pm, is the correct time.

    So the correct times are on SWNZ.

    I dragged myself out of bed to catch episodes 1-10, which screened at 10am-11am this morning, on TCN. There were some neat previews for the second series, included shots of Grievous.

    Hyperspace members can catch episode 11 this afternoon ... it should be available for download between 2:30pm-3pm NZ time.

    It will be screening on Sky Digital, Cartoon Network at 7:30pm on Monday 29th.

    Episode 12 will be on hyperspace tomorrow, and features Mace Windu on Dantooine.

    I think I'm going to wait for the Sky broadcast at 7:30, this time around. On my 56k connection, downloading those huge movie files takes hours.

    There was something mentioned about the inspirations for the 'seismic machine' in the hyperspace commentary ... I read some info about it in the official episode discussion thread in the small screen forum.

    Excuse me Mr Graal, but as a former CR, I would have expected you to know that the "F" letter is FORBIDDEN.

    WTH is the correct abreviation.

    BANE HIM. lmao.
