    Do you know if there is a simple way to record ITV4 on my sky box?

    I'm in the same boat, and don't think so.

    No ITV4 on Sky I am afraid - virgin only as far as I know !
    Hopefully RTE will be showing it at some stage this year ...

    This is for me one of the most frustrating things about RTE, they get these shows, show them in good time slots and then 'retire' them to graveyard slots for later seasons and never tell anyone. Personally I don't care about the times as I like to record and binge watch later but you need to know when it's on. Tried contacting RTE on season 4 last year and got no reply on twitter

    I will be keeping a close eye on the tv guides for season 5, if I spot it then I'll post it here. I have seen a few American TV series appear on RTE 2 for the middle of the night, which as I said is fine if you are setting it to record,

    rte not showing having taken the previous 4 series frustrating




  • They did the same with Person of Interest, showed the first four seasons and not bothered showing the fifth and final season!

    Anyone have any idea when season 6 is coming on any available channel? I tried programming ITV, no joy.

    Never realised it was back on RTE until today, S6 ep4 on tonight.

    Kinda raging I missed the first 3 episodes but it's a slow burner anyway so doubt I missed out on too much.

    6 is the final season, with 10 episodes. RTE have aired 4/10, so far.

    has this series bombed in the states? seems to be more or less forgotten about, little or no promotion

    It's a slow burn cable drama with limited appeal (its Russian element would be off-putting to some) and is about a marriage, as much as it is about other stuff. Other than critics and an online fanbase it doesn't have much traction. It ended last May in the US. I'm surprised RTE stuck with it given the small audience for something like this.


  • Registered Users Posts: 18,070 ✭✭✭✭ fryup


    ^^^^^^^^^^^^

    when it started it was promoted to the hilt, ITV were showing it..and then after the first series ended it just kinda fizzled out


  • Registered Users Posts: 15,294 ✭✭✭✭ Galwayguy35


    Elizabeth killed more people in these 4 episodes that she did in the previous 5 seasons!

    that do-gooder daughter wrecked my head...did she turn assassin?

    oh I loved it - its my top series that I recommend to people… has a certain cult following I think at time but I think its growing now that it over.
    It was so well made ( esp the setting and the 80's look) … I know some of the plots out there and dramatized but fascinating all the same on what went on back then and the goings on of the "centre" !

    Solid 10/10 series for me :p

    ^^^^^
    i think if you lived through the 80's and the whole cold war thingy, i think you'd appreciated this series more

    *can't wait for Chernobyl
