COUNTDOWN IS BACK THIS JANUARY, 2019 ... ON rage !!!!! Stay tuned below with regular Countdown full archival information for each Countdown episode rage shall be airing every Saturday throughout January ...
From my years as a Foxtel subscriber watching Max's Muscle TV on Aurora, the usual practice is to show one episode several times for a week, then the following week do the same thing with another episode and so on.
I'm really surprised that's happening and I wonder where the programmer's got the idea from.
It's a welcome idea though - a bit strange they are only showing 3 of the 20 episodes though. It'll be interesting to see what the reaction is to it. I have it on DVD and re-watching it again it stands up very well, which is great to see.
I was having a bit of a laugh there for a minute, because there is a show on Aurora called 'Sweet & Sour' and it's a panel discussion where they discuss viewer's emails, same format like the show 'Beauty & The Beast' that aired on Ten years ago.
Anyway, got onto the Foxtel online TV Guide and typed in 'Sweet & Sour' and it says in the description the band The Takeaways trying to make it in the music business. OMFG! But...it says Episode 70 and year of production 2008? I guess I will have to record it tomorrow morning to find out for sure.
Sorry guys. False alarm. I was sucked in by the info on the EPG.It said "A young band, The Takeaways, try to succeed in the music business". Turns out it is the community panel show as mentioned above. How disappointing.
