ok Next Tuesday 19/8 the online guide for Channel 7 says it's on  big grin so it should be 11:30

Looks like we might be getting backtracked for the episodes we've missed...."A Leela Of Her Own"

Hooray....!

When you reach the relevant number of posts, you will gain that rank.
Mods may reduce your post count to 0 if you spam just to get more posts.
Also, You will get a different set of 'stars' with each new rank
Spoilers
Use spoilers!! If you are about to give a part of a later episode away, use spoilers by putting <spoiler> and </spoiler> around the Spoiler (Replace the "< >" brackets with the "[ ]" brackets though) This will allow your message to be selectivly read.
Chat Talk
Basically what im saying is don't use numbers and horribly shortened lettering/wording in your posts.
Spamming? Spam? Whatís that?
Spam is basically a pointless post or thread. 'Welcome' threads are a common source of spam, so they get closed. Also donít doublepost, use the edit button instead.
What are moderators? And administrators?
Administrators run the board and control every aspect of it. They also wield the dreaded Banstick TM.  The admins are ][-mArc-] and SlimmyCGEF.
Moderators are explained in the PEEL FAQ. Basically theyíre helping the admins keep the board clean. Get the word straight from the horseís mouth here. The UberModís wield the just as dreaded BanstickLight TM.
How was I supposed to know there were another thread like that?
Use the search function before making threads, you'll also find a link to 'Search' at the top of all threads. 2 times out of 3 youíll find another thread about that exact topic.
Why canít we discuss the locations of downloads?
a) Itís illegal.
b) Because the admins said so!
What are scans?
Scans are a form of fanart, where you trace a framegrab from the show.
Read about how to make scans here, here and here
I have some fanarts I want to show you, but I donít know how to post pictures on PEEL.
Even though itís outdated (since Netfirms doesnít allow hotlinking on their free plan), this thread is still a good read. Just find another hoster.

Use:
&#38;#91; for [
&#38;#93; for ]

Instead of saying replace <> with [], it's clearer. Just be careful, if you then edit that message, it will convert the &#38;#91; into the [ and thus translate it as UBB.
Example:
Initial Code for post was:
&#38;#91;IMG&#38;#93;
When edited, in the edit box it becomes:
&#91;IMG&#93;
Posted it is translated as UBB and becomes:


I hope that's clear.

EDIT: Also, that link to a tutorial is dead (The last TFH one), use this link:

Hi Katie always nice to meet a fellow Aussie....  smile
And Alex I don't think we've been formally intoduced, and err all the others lol *waves*

I went to Ballarat for a scout jamboree when I was 12....had the worst weather I've ever seen....anyway getting off topic here....:-P

Also this has been bugging me but what does "Pre empting" mean and what is "syndication" in the US....?
I'm guessing syndication is when they show repeats of the show....?
But I can't work out what pre-empting means, being an Aussie sux sometimes lol  frown

i guess pre-empting would mean assuming an episode would be shown unless something happens.

those words aren't strictly american.

"Pre-empting" means airing a program different than the one normally scheduled.  For instance, instead of airing Futurama, The Visionaries at Fox saw fit to air pro football instead.

In the US, many programs are produced by the network that initially airs them.  For instance Fox produced and eventually got around to airing Futurama whenever there wasn't something more important available (such as the Pygmi Lawn Bowling Semifinals).  During the initial run, the programs are aired only on network affiliated stations.  Once a program has had its run on a network, it is often made available to non-network entities.  This is "syndication", and just another way to wring more money out of a program.

Hope this helps clarify things.

*Looks a bit more closely at EBroadCast*
*Sigh* Look at all the crap on before Futurama...
Prime
 7:00 pm: HOME AND AWAY
 7.30 pm: BETTER HOMES AND GARDENS
 8.00 pm: ROOM FOR IMPROVEMENT
 8.28 pm: OZ LOTTO: DRAW: 496
 8.30 pm: ALL SAINTS
 9.30 pm: CROSSING JORDAN
 10.30 pm: THE AMAZING RACE

None of that deserves to be on TV let alone shown before something good.... well thats Prime (And aussie TV in general) for ya.....

Great... I have to wait an hour (OK lets be honest, half an hour) between Rove and Futurama

And just on a side note... Damn Rove Live by Request... It should be called "Rove's Dusty Off-cuts" Also known as RDO

Amazing Race is a good show though, it's probably the best reality tv show and it has a large fanbase here so perhaps it might bring some fans to Futurama.

I missed Futurama last night (I didn't know it was on), but thankfully my trusty TV guide told me the episode was A Leela Of Her Own, which I've already seen (DivX).

Next week is 30% Iron Chef which I haven't seen, so I can't miss it.

TAR is a wonderful show. There are two shows for which I will interrupt whatever I'm doing to watch. Those are Futurama and The Amazing Race. I do not watch any other reality shows.

The TAR finale airs on CBS on August 21st at 8:00PM ET/PT.

On topic, what episode(s) will be shown on Australian TV?
