That's just the randomness of present-day TV scheduling for you. Anything goes! Can't recall what the series was now (a recent Nordic-noir crime type thing on Freeview) where a female detective, who was one of the main characters, was killed off mid-way through the series. In the last episode which aired, she miraculously re-appeared again, large as life! Either they had accidentally missed an episode part way through and just stuck it on the end or needed another week's worth of material to fill a gap in the schedule so just added on a missing episode from mid-season right at the end!
LOL, thanks Graham and no, I don't leave my phone anywhere but in the little section that cheerfully charges the thing up for me, it was just the easiest comparison I could come up with while my Daughter was telling me to leave the suave Anton & his attire well alone 😊
Next gripe ... Has anyone else noticed how different the quality of pictures between HD & SD are?
It seems the gap between them both is widening by the day lately ... EG: I've just compared:
ITV1 HD & ITV1 SD, ITV4 HD & ITV4 SD, (among others), for the darts, and the difference between like channels is pronounced, so much so that the SD channels look almost out of focus? ... We ALL know that companies 'want' us viewing in HD ... As do we all ...But I'm sure the SD channels were never this bad before the likes of HD & UHD came along, or maybe we never knew what we were missing lol ... It's as if some boffin sat in a little room somewhere tweaking the 'focus' ..... Makes you wonder 🤔
Aha! Found it. I was clicking on the Help Forum at the bottom of the screen and not the one at the top. But I found it. Good to be here. So, what have I missed the past few weeks?
I noticed the Law and Order episode wierdness as well - and that I find the same ones on different channels days apart.
About a year after Law and Order also became Law and Order SVU and then Law and Order CSI, Saturday NIght Live did a whole thing when Eddie Murphy was the Guest Host (he's brilliant), on Law and Order UTI (Urinary Tract Infection). It was hilarious.
Tonight we have - s13e17, s18e7, s13e8, s16e18, s16e19 ...
I did start jotting down what series/episodes I'd watched, but the numbers look as the chaotic series/episodes schedule. So while I could probably use my notes to prove time travel is possible through a wormhole, I'm buggered if I know where I am with Law & Order: SVU.
Just to get off the 'power outage' rants for a second or two ...
Has anyone else noticed that on practically EVERY American cop show, the Officer always shouts who they are, while still around 30 yards from the one they're after? ..... Wouldn't you think they would get as close as possible before opening their mouths ???
Granted, the majority of shows would only run for about 15 mins without the chases, or maybe they get a bonus for running?
