Seven will air the first episode tomorrow – Friday 21 August – sometime after the AFL game finishes. Click here for more info.
Yes, I know, you cannot trust the free to air channels in Australia to air something on time, when planned, or when they say they will air it. I would rarely recommend viewing something via free to air tv, purely because they shaft their viewers on a regular basis.
And they wonder why people torrent and pirate?
However, I love this show so much – in particular the first episode and that amazing ferris wheel scene – that I am telling you about this, so you can attempt to see the first episode and decide if you like it enough to *ahem* source it via alternate means. Whether that be via Presto, or other means, that is down to you. :)
When it will appear, nobody could actually tell you. Unfortunately you can’t rely on your episode guide to tell you. Shows routinely begin 15-30 minutes before or after they are scheduled to begin. Usually after.
Check your local guide, then tune in half an hour before that says it will air just in case they start it early which does occasionally happen just to mess with the viewers minds, and plan to see it about half an hour to an hour after the guide says it will start.
If you are going to try and record it, record the entire football match and the rest of the scheduled shows that evening. Hopefully somewhere in there, you may catch the show.
The good news is, they are only showing the first episode, so no need to try and rely on them to show you the same show in order during the same time-slot for 10 weeks running, which they almost *never* do.
If you catch it, drop back and let me know what you thought in the comments on this post. :)
