(SPOILER) Tonight on BBC Two - Chiwetel Ejiofor stars in 'The Shadow Line'. It's got quite the cast for a BBC drama. Christopher Eccleston, Sir Antony Sher and Stephen Rea are in it as well.

I can't wait to see this! The adverts look great, and the cast really is remarkable. I wish it weren't airing on a Friday night, but I'm sure I'll watch it on iPlayer whilst hungover at some point this weekend...
That's actually for last night (it's on Thursday nights) so you'd be watching it on iPlayer whether you were out on the razz or not ;).

(as will I cos once again, despite Simon's best efforts, I totally forgot it was on. Whedonesque could really do with some sort of SMS alert system or failing that, a big flashing neon sign above my TV)
I don't know what we did before iPlayer. Stay in on a Saturday for fear of missing Doctor Who?
In the olden days we had these wondrous machines called video recorders. So i'd stay in on Saturday for fear of my video recorder not working causing me to miss 'Doctor Who' - which is an entirely different fear.

(true though, iPlayer's the balls. Money well spent)
Ooops! Well, noted for next Thursday...

I've realized that over the past 6 months I've virtually given up watching live TV (hence not knowing when things are on). I keep thinking about getting rid of my telly, but it's been such a tool for Whedon evangelism over the years that I can't quite make myself do it...

Know what you mean, that's why I keep forgetting/missing stuff - I almost never see trailers for anything because I almost never watch live TV anymore (except the news and even that I often get on the web now).
