BBC Lands <i>Gladiators</i> on U.S. Shores; U.S. Threatens Retaliation

Just when you thought U.S./U.K. relations were at an all-time high, something like this happens. In a clear violation of the Gladiator Non-Proliferation Treaty, BBC America will be broadcasting the game show Gladiators, the U.K. version of the U.S. hit American Gladiators, to American audiences starting on November 1. Since the return of American Gladiators, the U.S. has been careful not to send them overseas or even point them at anybody, so the threat to send British Gladiators into American homes is being taken quite seriously in Washington. ...Washington D.C., not Washington State. Washington state doesn't really care.

<i>Primeval</i>: A Jurassic Lark

If you were like me, you saw that BBC America was bringing over a show called Primeval, and said, "Wasn't that that movie about a giant crocodile starring Orlando Jones?" Well, in Britain, they were either blissful unaware of that film, or they felt that a crummy movie should not have the right to bogart an awesome title, because a month after the movie was inflicted on American audiences, UK viewers got a much better Primeval, in the form of an hour-long sci-fi drama in the vein of X-Files, Angel and Stargate SG-1. And with a new episode premiering this Saturday, followed by a mini-marathon on Sunday, I wanted to get the word out that there is nary an Orlando Jones in sight.
