Where are the Satellite City fans ?
16 March 2006 | by (South Wales, U K) – See all my reviews

I know that there are some out there but why aren't you talking about this excellent comedy which is currently (feb 2006) being repeated on BBC2W Digital (available on Sky and Freeview). If more interest is shown in this Bafta winning show then perhaps a DVD set might be released by the BBC in the near future (or possibly a national transmission on a terrestrial channel) If anyone outside Wales is thinking about watching it, then don't worry! you don't have to be welsh to enjoy it - but it might make it funnier. lol

BTW: who put that quote on the page? I had a clean sweep (every entry on the page) until that was put there. Oh well, at least someone else is thinking about it. :)
