Channel 4 have… er… lost the rights to broadcast the next series of Lost. They have been outbid by Sky One.
It’s been a while since I’ve watched a US import drama on Sky One. The last one was probably when I got bored of Nip/Tuck halfway though the third series. Oh, no. Actually we watched Threshold on Sky One earlier this year. But the vast majority of US imports that we’ve been watching in recent years (The West Wing, Six Feet Under, The Sopranos, ER, Lost itself) have all been shown on Channel 4 (or one of its digital channels).
And, to be honest, I won’t be watching series three of Lost on Sky One either. We were getting so caught up in the mysteries at the end of series two, that I’ve been getting the series three episodes from Bittorrent. I know I’m behind the curve here, but I’m slowly becoming what 2lmc call a Martini content consumer.
