This is not the thread to bash folks for online downloading, so I won't do that...
But I do have a question... I understand completely the series that aren't imported to the US on any channel... or back when it was a year or more before we got a show like Doctor Who in the US... but 2 weeks?
At this point, we have waited since January 1st... which by the time April rolls around will be 3 months... so what's another 2 weeks?
It isn't like sports where you have to not watch any TV to miss the score for the game you haven't seen... It's pretty easy to avoid spoilers if you want from a UK show... and once you wait those "extra" 2 weeks, then you get a new show every week roughly for the whole series.
I truly understand the gotta-watch-it-now mentality.. I open stuff in the car on the way home if I'm not driving!
But 2 weeks is not enough to even make me notice... especially if I just train myself that April 17th is the start of the season and ignore the fact that it aired already in the UK.
Also, at least in my case... Dish finally picked up BBC America HD, so I'll get to see in HD this time around without having to wait for the Blu rays like with the specials last year.
