Apparently channel 5 have it for the UK, which I think is good news. BBC and channel 4 will either butcher it and stick it on in early evening to appeal to teens or else shove it all over the timetables, usually at random ungodly hours, testing your sky plus to the limits. Channel 5 at least tends to make its US imports something of a flagship for the channel.

I can't remember the last time BBC had a major American import, as for Channel Four, I assume you didn't watch Fargo?

Re: Fox Developing "Gotham" Young Jim Gordon Series

^ Um *blushes* I did watch it (slaps self). But I was thinking more of how they treated the likes of Angel (editing) or the West Wing, Hostages, Studio 60 and even The Sopranos, all of which aired at late and irregular times. Fargo (which was brilliant) is probably more of a good Ch4 fit than most US imports.

The BBC went down the late-night and irregular route with Damages, which was the last American import I watched devoutly there.

Channel 4 admittedly airs Agents of Shield but it's a little more PG than I expect Gotham to be; I suspect that Gotham won't really be suitable for a Sunday afternoon repeat, for example.

Fair enough, I didn't really watch SHIELD, only caught a few early episodes on C4 then the finale on RTE a couple of months ago.

As for Fargo, it was on at the same time every week, it even pushed back what was on after so they wouldn't edit the episodes down and even though that Lexus advert/sponsorship indent we had here was annoying as hell, they seemed to put the adverts in where they were meant to go.

I think it's down to the different controllers as to how they treat any programmes. (Obviously) Whether they're homegrown or imported but it's been a while since the examples you've cited (especially Angel!) and their have been a few regime changes both at the BBC and Channel Four since. - I remember when BBC2 was the place for Sci Fi at 6'oclock, starting with Next Gen in the late eighties and then finishing with Farscape, Buffy and Voyager a decade or so later.

I'm surprised Sky Atlantic didn't get this though.

^Yeah, I was thinking that about Sky Atlantic, or at least one of the satellite channels myself. But SA tend to go for the HBO/AMC type shows, as oppose to the network type programmes (which I think Gotham is).

Basically as long as it gets aired unedited somewhere accessible, I'm happy enough!
