ER on sky atlantic

Hello,

 

Ever since sky atlantic launched, ER has been showing since series 1, it has showed 1 episode per day during the week.

 

It seems that from now on its going to show 2 episodes a day, 5 days a week.

 

Why are sky doing this?  No one is going to have enough time to watch this many a week.

 

What is the point in doubling it up? 10 episodes a week is so pointless

Re: ER on sky atlantic

Hi adamCCC,

 

Firstly I would like to thank you for your patience and for your enquiry about this. The reason why this has now been double billed on a daily basis is because of it's popularity and so far the reaction has been very positive. This is not unusual that shows are double billed as other channels do this. It's very common that this happens with American sitcom's.

 

I hope this answer your queries, however if it doesn't then get back to us.

 

Thanks.

Re: ER on sky atlantic

if there are too many to watch just out it on record with series link and watch it when you want.

 

I'm doing that with Charmed, the box if recording Series 7 but I still half way through series 5.

Also have 3 series of X-file to get to sometime.

Re: ER on sky atlantic

Hmm for starters it isnt a sitcom, its an hour long drama.  Sitcom's typically last half an hour, therefore 2 episodes isnt that much.

 

how do you know its had a positive reaction? Because people are still watching and recording?  That is probably because they have just watched the first 10 seasons and dont want to just stop watching the programme now. 

 

Most series have 1 episode a week, the ER re-runs were on 5 a week, now its 10.  Its just stupid.

Re: ER on sky atlantic

not only is it hard to watch that many, but it also means a whole series will be over in about 2 weeks.. so the show is guna be over alot quicker aswell

Hi adamCCC,

 

I understand it's not suited to you, however at the moment it has been changed to two episodes per day. I suppose the the good thing is you can record them all and watch them when you want:smileyhappy:

 

Thanks for your questions and hopefully we will hear from you again soon.

 

Regards.

Re: ER on sky Atlantic

Hi, I too have been watching ER on Sky Atlantic and have them on series record but have just noticed that after series 11, the next few scheduled episode summaries are out of sync and skip from various series' from 1 to 6 randomly. When will series 12 be shown? If it is not planned then I will not bother to keep the series record.

Thank you

Re: ER on sky atlantic

After some serious research (looking in the Radio Times lol) I have discovered that ER series 12 will resume with episode 4 on Boxing day. However it will still be two episodes per evening. Hope this helps.

 

P.S Sky, maybe you should get a Radio Times so that you can keep your customers informed of you TV listings schedule lol :smileyvery-happy:
