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 ...
I for one really enjoyed RockA rena in the 80s and still now. It's nostalgic for me and I got to record some AMAZING Dance and Alternative videos on RA in the 80s which Countdown didn't play.
COuntdown is my NUMBER ONE but I loved Rock Arena and The Noise on SBS desperately!
You can blame me for the 1986 Rock Arena as I requested it for the David Sylvian interview as I am a huge Japan and Sylvian fan and I LOVE that interview that Suzanne conducted with My Sylvian xxxx Sigh ...
I however HATED the 1989 ROck Arena and stopped the recorder and stopped watching, I LOATHE The Black Sorrows and 1989 is ****E.
I don';t have any high hopes for week 3 this weekend but live in hope that week 4, rage play some Countdown!
All four Countdown episodes on Week 1 were on ym request list and I got one of the Rock Arena's I want so I should shut up BUT I won't because let's face it. We all want as much Countdown as possible!!!!!!!!!!
I think lots of GTK this weekend coming which is of NO interest to me! It's VILE

I'm very happy with the Countdowns they have chosen - all from early 80s. I prefer them to later 80s. Disappointing that they are repeating film clips we've seen plenty of times already in between Countdowns. Still annoyed that they aren't showing more Countdowns, and that they aren't starting at an earlier time, say around 11pm like last year. The sad possibility is that they will show less Countdowns and more other shows as February progresses - let's hope not.
Starting off the night with a bang with Space Invaders. I enjoy Countdowns from every era so happy with whatever they play. The one hosted by dorky Constable Roy Baker from Cop Shop should be fun. A Rock Arena would be nice though hopefully we'll get a couple in the next few weeks.
