Horray for BBC's iPlayer....

For once a catch up on TV service (the new 2.0 streaming one rather than the 40D style download one) that doesn't crash your computer or demand you install large unreliable player software, so you know, you can actually watch the programs again and not just have program on the computer that uses all the memory without actually doing what it is supposed to. The highlight this week for me, with shifts all over the place temporally and geographically, is I can follow the fate that has befallen poor Pingu in Criminal Justice and the Imagine show on Werner Herzog

I suppose even since V, I just like the idea of a consecutive-night miniseries which you don't often get and in a way caters for the quick gratification box set crowd (which I would be if I could afford extortionate box set prices) well I do watch box sets but mostly in their static form in HMV.

After I flirted with disaster, and fucked up my computer, with 4od I may give the BBC iplayer a try - on your recommendation. Although maybe I'll just wait until I recover from the 4od induced trauma.
