American Gothic on UK TV

In my not so humble opinion, American Gothic was the greatest show that’s ever been on TV. (If I reviewed that one episode at a time, the Firefly episode called Objects in Space wouldn’t be the only review to score 42 out of 42.) Well, UK TV fans can rejoice; I’ve just learned that SkyOne will start running the series (in reruns) as of 10pm on Thursday May 22.

    I fully agree. Gary Cole was in a zone I would call “beyond perfect” on that show. I don’t know that I’ve ever seen evil done better.

    The last time I had a chance to see it was when it was run on SciFi. For the Americans, I would suggest that anyone interested in seeing it again write to [email protected] so that we can get it on for another go-round.

      Why Bother. I’ve Given Up On The Sci-Fi Channel. After Cancelling Farscape, Passing On Firefly, And Deciding To Move Away From Space Shows, They’ve Now Got a ‘Tremors’ The Series, And A *Reality Show*. A Reality Show For Our Target Demographic? Do They Know Who We Are?

      On Top Of That, They’re Evidently Casting For A Show Called ‘Mad House‘ (Another Reality Show). This Is Going To Feature People From Odd Walks Of Life, Evidently Just To Use Them As Charicatures Of Themselves. The One That Has Me Particularly Riled Up Is They’re Looking For A Pagan To Be In The Household, And Want Someone Who Is As Stereotypical Goat-Sacrificing As they can Find. I work As Part Of A Charity That Is Attempting To Dispell The Myths About That Sort Of Thing, And Here They Are Doing The Exact Opposite.

      So, I’ve Given Up On Sci-Fi. A Few Years Ago, They Would Have Been The Reason To Get Cable. I’d Turn Them On, No Care What Was Showing, And Be able To Sit and Watch. I Still Remember A Solid Hour About Some Space Marines Re-Taking A Base, And Having To Defend from Android (I Think) Enemies. I Knew Nothing Of The Series, Backstory, Or Anything, And Was Enthralled For That Hour, Because It Was just Good Sci-Fi. Now, If I Want That, I Guess I’ve Got To Go Download Old Firefly Episodes.

      Sorry. Rant Over.

        I feel your pain but if they’ve still got the syndication rights, it’s the only shot to get it on the air. I know for absolutely certain that our hideous affiliates here in Portland aren’t going to show it (partly because there aren’t enough episodes and partly because they’re, well, hideous).

        At least with SciFi, they do show old series (such as their rotating daytime block), and I can’t imagine that rebroadcasting AG costs them that much.

    I can’t believe it for once I am glad of a repeat!

    At last someone over here is re-showing American Gothic! When it was first shown here in the UK on Channel 4 it suffered from being bounced around the schedule more than a… a… a thing that gets bounced around a lot (give us a break its a Monday), lets hope that doesn’t happen again… oh, must set up season pass on TiVO!!!
