It Was Very Nearly Murder

A close thing indeed. Over a week ago, I was enthusing about the then-upcoming premiere of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles. Then I leafed through the week’s TV guide and discovered it was premiering in the exact same timeslot as Women’s Murder Club, a new crime show based on the novels by James Patterson and Maxine Paetro. As you can probably guess, this was a show Vickie was not about to watch on the TV in the bedroom, let alone miss. It could have been war, I tell you. A struggle for the remote control the like of which would never before have been witnessed.

The situation was resolved, by all things, indoor soccer. The first round of the finals was scheduled for 8:15 last night, so by the time I got home The Sarah Connor Chronicles would have been all over. Besides which, as Vickie reminded me, I hog the big screen enough when playing Halo 3.

The fates have been kind, though; I won’t be stuck with a grainy, analogue-transmitted videotape of the show. Channel Nine, in its wisdom, has decided to run an encore screening of the first episode of The Sarah Connor Chronicles at ten thirty tonight, right after the premiere of another crime drama, the gritty Australian based-on-real-events show Underbelly.

See, folks? Everyone’s problems really do get solved by sports.

Some of us have solved it by downloading it. :)

Heh heh! Well,I weakened once and downloaded the first episode of the new Doctor Who after my VCR buggered the recording, but that was the first and hopefully last time. I prefer to wait until shows I like come out on DVD (like Season 3 of Battlestar Galactica) - and in the meantime, there are other things I prefer to waste my download limit on!
