American TV still sucks...

...but: on a good night you can see up to 5 episodes of Seinfeld. Superb, and horribly mistreated when the BBC showed it in the UK: late in the evening, in a different slot every week, and forever being shunted to make way for snooker and other such guff.

And PBS isn't too bad either; on Saturday we got Casablanca, uninterrupted by adverts. Yesterday an episode of Red Dwarf, although with terrible sound: as if it were being played off a 3rd-generation videotape. It's a little like an amateurish BBC2; although I could do without the endless reruns of Are You Being Served, which America apparently loves but which still makes me cringe.
