What's with Australia? Why do you always get things so late in the game? Movies get released there sometimes weeks after they've been out here, and now you're just getting the first episode of DH? I guess their trying to build up their own industry? Well, whatever they're doing, it seems to be working, as now there are many aussies in Hollywood, and doing quite well I might add...

But really, someone needs to do something about the lag.....

Some things we get straight away, we get the Golden Globes and Oscars on the day they happen, we got each episode of American Idol last year just a few days after it aired in the USA, we have the newest season the Amazing Race starting at pretty much the same time as you guys I think. But a lot of things take up to six months or more to get here. We have the first season of "The Swan" screening later this year, and that is REALLY old.

We have a minimum portion of TV that has to be Australian-made, but that doesn't mean we can't get US programs straight away. I don't know why it takes so long. Maybe they like to see how well a show rates in the USA before they screen it here - to see if it's worth it.

Anyway ... Desperate Housewaives was on last night. I missed big chunks of it becausee we had people over, but they are re-screening it later on tonight so I can take more of it in. I love the characters, I love the fact that they jumped right in with the drama. It seems to be really well written and well acted, so I think it's cool!

PS: what did the note that the girls found when they were taking away the clothes say? I missed it and it seems to be important.

Housewives a hit

SUPER hit US series Desperate Housewives - a satirical look at wealthy suburbia - scored one of the highest drama debuts in Australian TV history.

Almost 2.5 million people, the majority of them women, tuned in to Seven at 8.30pm on Monday for the drama that is sure to set tongues wagging around the water cooler this year.
The drama wiped the floor with its competitors. In Sydney, 60 per cent of viewers were women and the program rated particularly highly in the 16-39 age bracket.

Its formidable performance was underlined by the fact last year's top-rating show at 8.30pm, Nine's Who Wants To Be A Millionaire, was watched by one million fewer viewers every week.

"It provides us with a terrific opportunity to try and rebuild our audience share," Seven's Simon Francis said. The program got off to a strong start in the US so the success in Australia reflects that and the program accelerates as people get to know the characters."

They finally showed it here last week... actually, it wasn't really in Taiwan, they played it in another Country, I just have their channels I'm 2 episodes in, but I really enjoy it.

I've been watching it on and off lately, I still don't know 100% for certainw hat the note said.

"I know what you did" or something wasn't it?
