LOL, they cut out the hash cake part, but left in Naboo showing off his lack of genitals.

Strange the way they edit things sometimes.

The whole migration was supposed to be about freeing up bandwidth to improve their services, but getting On Demand into more houses might have been a factor, too.

Probably time issues, British shows run longer than American shows. They cut the bouncy house crimp from earlier in the episode too.

I hate how On Demand has the pay stuff mixed in with the free stuff.

I've noticed before that British shows tend to be longer.  One advantage of a system depending on mandatory fees from every household, fewer ads.  We've had On Demand for a while but haven't really delved into it.  Is it easy to accidentally order something that has a fee?

The price isn't displayed until you've clicked on info, the price is up with the title and the rating. It's not easy to accidentally buy something, because the play button is different.

Saw an Old Gregg in Fable II just recently, entirely unrelated to the fish man, I think.  He wasn't on screen long though.  After putting my character in a cage, he wandered into the thick fog and was taken away by the banshees.

Nah, mostly offline, except for a limited online co-op.  Gregg captures you when you teleport to a haunted marsh and the gate explodes behind you.  It's a British game though, heavy on humor, and made years after "The Legend of Old Gregg".  Both Greggs try to keep you imprisoned in their own ways...  Maybe not just a coincidence.

Have you seen the Tim Burton version of Willy Wonka? I'm convinced it's not a coincidence he looks a lot like Naboo.

That's my favorite version of Willy Wonka, though I'll generally like anything with Tim Burton involved.

I love Tim Burton, but I prefer the old version.

AS changed their line up again, Mighty Boosh is being replaced by The Office.

They like shuffling things around to go for the best ratings.  They're moving Bleach to midnight on Saturday and putting an hour of American Dad before that.  Like in the past, they hope you come for the comedy and maybe stay for the anime.

I don't think the anime ever got very good ratings, I think most people prefer their anime subbed.

The shrinking space that anime gets in the schedule would seem to confirm that.  In the ratings they like to post on Saturdays, the anime is always beat by whatever comedy they're featuring that night.  Bleach has plenty of fans but it takes so long to get the dubbed version on the air.

I've heard about certain channels that will show subbed programming (I don't get any of those).  I doubt they'd experiment with that on AS.

Probably not. Dubbed anime does a lot better on tv, but not with the real fans. Being on Saturday nights might have something to do with it too, most people aren't home.
