Hello World!

One of the big downsides of living in Europe is that we often get American television series well over a year after they air in the US. One of the upsides is that while there also is little original Dutch programming during Summer, we seem to get fresh episodes of American shows throughout the year.

The main reason for that is that we have about as many television stations here as there are networks in the US. As only about half of their primetime programming consists of American television series (the other half being Dutch shows, news programs, films, etc.), that means enough series are available for them to show fresh episodes all year long.

As a result, today the first episode of Boston Public premiered in the Ally McBeal timeslot, while tomorrow Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel will begin their new seasons in the place of Charmed and some other show. As I mentioned earlier, Dark Angel already started last month, and Law & Order will begin its new season two weeks from now.

Now the climate will just have to cooperate and give me a wet, cold summer without any of that annoying sun stuff - can you imagine having to actually go outside and do fun things while all these great shows are debuting on screen?
