    So in the UK if we don't watch DSC when it's actually on there is no on demand option available!! Very poor show, I haven't had to watch something when it was actually on since the 80s/early 90s - what a complete joke.

    1980. Some good songs that year and a Hostage Crisis. But too bad the macho he-men were hell-bent on killing Disco. The more things change, the more they stay the same. ;)

    I didn't (or rather my parents didn't) have a VCR till late 80s, thing is you can't even do that in this case lol.

    I'd rather pay for a decent signal and be able to watch it ad free at my convenience than have what we have for free,

    The Pluto TV announcement said, in addition to the free Pluto TV airing:

    ‪‪I believe it’s presently available through both iTunes and Amazon, commercial free.

    Yes there is, I spent £20 for the season with itunes last Friday, and watched it on the built in apple tv app on my TV.

    Oh I'll go for free thanks - I'd prefer to save my pennies for a Bluray release.

    It's certainly a novelty to be watching something 'live' though.

    You may find that when you do eventually see it that you're more disappointed than when you didn't see it.

    So, they shouldn't watch it? O_O

    Shouldn't they judge for themselves? Or perhaps we should not watch it at all and save ourselves from future disappointment? *enters philosophical mode*

    To watch, or not to watch, that is the question

    Best not watch it then. Or anything else for that matter.

    Perhaps the ennui some feel after watching this programme is in fact buyers remorse?
