Hello World!

Commercial television here in the Netherlands is getting more annoying all the time. A couple of weeks ago, they started showing the new season of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which I expected they'd continue showing all summer long. As I'd never had a chance to really follow Buffy before, I was looking forward to finally get into the show. Well, I did, and the show managed to really intrigue me - and then yesterday, after only five episodes, they announced the show would go on hiatus until September. Same for Angel.

Meanwhile, on a sister station of this same station, they also recently replaced Dark Angel with the failed UPN show Freedom, of all things, after showing only six or seven episodes or so. No idea when, if ever, it'll be returning. And of course trying to get into Freedom is of no use at all, as I already know only 13 episodes of the series was ever produced.

At least the Tour de France is still showing. Unless they cancel even that halfway through, of course.
