Mad, the best news we have here is that PBS says they're going to buy the show and air it "sometime". Date not yet set.
It aired six months ago
in the UK.
What's even more frustrating is that when PBS finally does
get around to showing it they'll inevitably cut it. The shows run about 100 minutes or so in the UK (2 hours of broadcast time with commercials), but since PBS doesn't have ads, they feel they have to reduce it to fit into a 90-minute time slot. These shows are tightly edited to begin with, so they wind up removing material which is important, both to character development and mood and sometimes even to the plot. A couple of the shows have actually come across as illogical because of the cuts!
The best part of all this is that, at SOME point after PBS airs it, Acorn Media will release the Region 1 DVDs which will contain the full show.
