Wasn't it the same for Scumbus? That seems to be Ten's preferred option these days. Less chance of people turning over between programs.

Hi there - could somebody direct me to where I could find Mad as Hell episodes, the first series and the new series? Trying to find them through conventional means is a pain in the arse as I've moved to China and nobody seems to be uploading them.

Shaun's Kenneth Williams impersonation was a highlight for me.
Actor Melvyn Hayes and stars of the Carry On films.

Yeah, they did that to GNW too. Just disappointed that it was really - literally - 1 second.

I'm not sure why you're surprised. This is how commercial networks all now seem to deal with all credits, but I guess they do usually give them more than one frame, they're normally split screened and thrown under to the side or below the next show starting up. Standard practice isn't it?

Thanks for the links, baudrillard. Shaun is also a Tuesday guest on Tom and Alex on JJJ for as long as MAH's on.

So, what are people thinking of Mr&Mrs Murder? It's living up to my expectations, which weren't very high. I was hoping for Shaun's character to be a bit less placid, perhaps more Monk-like, though. Hoping we'll see more spark in him as it continues.

I must admit I approached the first ep with some trepidation and I suspect that messed with my enjoyment- I loved the second one (which of course may well have been done before the first).

It's in an odd model with the mix of actual crime with (intentional!) humour - and very Aussie but not as a key humour element like The Castle etc - but somehow all that works. Also I watched second ep online on the Ch 10 site which interestingly plays each section between the commercials in sequence but without the ads!

May not rate like TAYG but it's brilliant to actually have a new Aus drama and I thing the risk paid off!

I'm loving both MAH & M&MM. I agree, the 2nd episode really hit its stride.
