I didn't think they did. I believe it was suggested, as was top-slicing for broadband roll out, but none of the suggestions ever went through.

I don't think Sony have been able to syndicate Breaking Bad outside of AMC Networks. There aren't that many episodes, all would have to have 4 minutes cut at least (and that's before you get to...

I don't know, Breaking Bad, Justified, The Walking Dead, Sons of Anarchy, Terminator:SCC all seem to have big cult fanbases, and in the past few weeks Lip Sync Battle has been going viral. It's a...

Spike aren't going after a highbrow audience, starting with Mad Men wouldn't make any sense.

One of the key strengths of Breaking Bad was that managed to be very intelligent without being...

I doubt it. Seems like it would be the wrong demographic. The US Spike may be trying to broaden out, but the UK Spike seems very male dominant, and has a lot more drama than the US Spike.

Would Viacom be shooting Nick Jr. in the foot by launching another kids network though?

I must confess I do not like their endboard, the font is weird and it just looks a bit too busy for my liking. The rest of their design is really good though.

You spend all this time asking for a channel like this and now you're ****ing whining that it's a niche channel and isn't that good. Make your bloody mind up!

I think you'd be pushing it airing BB at 9pm. There's nothing I'd have a problem with at 9pm, but there's one or two episodes that are probably pushing it a bit too much for the 9pm slot.

It's being managed by Channel 5's team, so arguably the wording is perfectly acceptable.

A tenner?! Only if you buy dodgy copies.

From Viacom's comments it sounds like they started with a desire to extend the Spike brand, and then thought about programming that would suit. Police Interceptors being an example owned by C5 that...

Syfy UK has to bid for the shows the same as any other network would, it would seem Spike outbid them.

Will the gain from Spike HD equate to the loss of another channel? I'm fairly certain, not.

You all say you won't watch if it isn't in HD, but there aren't many people like that and if you compare...

C5's website says they still haven't decided, and they're normally honest about dropping shows, but the show was dropped prior to season 4 and subsequently picked up again. Sounds like Digital Spy...

Which was my point exactly, it's far too big a commitment for people interested in the show, and if you miss an episode (even just one) you're screwed for the rest of the series.
