    excellent, as far as I'm concerned Scrubs is the best show on a major network right now (ignoring HBO & Showtime for arguments sake).

    Shouldn't be that much work. Sure, there's a different network and studio to deal with here but NBC adds shows at the drop-of-a-hat and Touchstone is owned by Disney. Who's that new guy on the Disney board now? ;)

    Good-o.

    Yet another show that we could possibly download when we finally get TV shows on iTunes.

    now I really want TV downloads to come to the UK. At the moment the only Scrubs fix I can get is on ABC1 where they just show the first series over and over and over and over and over. I swear it's on like twice a month. And I missed lots of episodes when it was on Channel 4.

    Excellent news. This is probably the first show that I would consider downloading through iTunes. Everything else is run of the mill trashy American sitcoms.

    Yea then I can get the Simpsons... but would we be willing to pay $1.99 when you can download the torrent for free and with better quality? Let's be honest. Better quality is a must in the long run, esp. if the iPod AV becomes a reality.

    WHAAAAA?????

    Battlestar Galactica
    The Office, based on a Brittish show? Un-American sitcome? ;)
    The Daily Show

    Scrubs would be a good one to add tot his list though. I also look forward to My Name is Earl, Justice League and other DC tv shows, and some animated stuff from FOX.

    Are they only up to season 3 over in the UK? Scrubs is so far gone, all they need is a cheesy laugh track. It's pure crap now.

    Absolutely. I've already DLed every episode to take with me when I travel.. It's the kind of show you can watch over and over again, like the first 9 or 10 seasons of the simpsons.. I'd even buy a couple if they included something extra. Soundtracks for each season are really exceptional too.

    You're going to get modded dead, and so will I for that matter, if you talk about torrents here. Unfortunately, them's seems to be the rules.

    But yes, I BT simpsons and scrubs too and reformat to what I need, i.e. 12" powerbook, ipod, treo, etc.

    Episode before last of scrubs they made a ref to grey's anatomy saying "it's like they saw our lives and put it on tv" :) I laughed at that. I tried grey's anatomy once for half an episode.. not my thing... whereas scrubs, well, the neatly catagorized AVI files on my external speak volumes :-D

    Anyone watch Munk?

    Same deal. Made by touchtone and one an NBC network. I want Scrubs to be on itunes more than just about anyone but its not a tough contract to negotiate. Im worried this may just be a rumor. While we are dreaming heres what else Id like...

    Scrubs, Cheers, Ed, Seinfeld... heres for hoping.

    fox's president peter ligouri[sp] stated that he didn't want to jump on the download game yet. that new media like itunes was a marathon and not a sprint and he wasn't sure how it was going to play out.

    translated: my parent company news corp is working on their own inferior, WMV based delivery method. when it fails i'll come crawling back to apple.

    seriously who cares if it's a marathon or a sprint. you've got nothing, repeat nothing to lose by offering shows on itunes. cost of encoding, meta data entry and upload is negligible. they're just being greedy and want the whole amount.
