Oh, really? Although to be fair the article does say it's much under-appreciated, and VIVA and SET are hardly major.
Anyway, I've been rewatching a lot of these recently and it's even better the second time around. So many subtle jokes and so much foreshadowing that I didn't or couldn't catch the first time through.
That is the very same article I read the other day that motivated me to go watch the show. The whole premise of that article is what I was getting at; the show isn't well known enough over here. If I hadn't stumbled across that article on my Guardian app browsing I'd have been one of the "unconverted"
And no, I wouldn't call Sony TV or Viva major channels which is what I was implying. All the big American sitcoms seem to get picked up by the likes of E4, Comedy Central and Sky One. They're the kind of channels that get the heavy advertising sitcoms of this quality deserve.
What the f*ck is Sony TV and Viva? This is almost as bad as Breaking Bad ending up on Five USA.
