b2H October 12, 2016 Share October 12, 2016 I have taken to following the BBC America Facebook page. For about a month, every time they advertised the new programming coming this fall, I went through their list of programming on my DirecTV app for the next two and a half weeks. Almost half of it was Star Trek: TNG, which had nothing to do with the BBC. Kitchen Nightmares, Planet Earth (in all its various incarnations), the Lions den, endless repeats of the 007 movies, (most recently) the US version of Star Trek (and for the record James Doohan was Canadian by birth, not British), some periodic Dr. Who broadcasts, Nature's Weirdest Events, CSI Miami (why, I can't tell you), the Terminator series of movies, Galaxy Quest, and Men in Black (again, why????) fill out the rest of the schedule. We get the occasional Graham Norton and Sherlock broadcasts, and Dirk Gently, along with Humans, Scorpion King but these are generally shown once and done - no repeats. Miss it and you are SOL. One time, for fun, I counted the number of episodes in a two week period for Next Generation. It exceeded the number of episodes for the entire series. So every time they go on a run for TNG, viewers are seeing pretty much every episode ever made. They just don't care. They really don't. 2 Link to comment
