Wally the space dolphin says to 86 the cartoons, because he wants to watch Flipper.

Yes.

Wally has taken over the teevee, and is watching Flipper.

Now what do we do?

The teevee is now unoccupied. Let's see what's on channel three...

Well, now, we can't post that here, can we? http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/eek.gif Isn't cable wonderful?

...So there are extraterrestrial teevee stations that we yanks don't know about? Your slip-up has revealed your secret! Ah-hah-hah! Ha-ha-hah!

What is it, then...Mars TV?

Wally the space dolphin is done with the fish, and now he's back...only this time he's demanding svelte, supple girlie space porpoises to placate his outrageous appetites.

Mars TV launches in 2 months. Actually, Saturn is generally thought to have the best programmes short of the Black Hole Corp., but they're based in Sirius, and the reception isn't too good here.

Now if only we can get 'Fuzzy Panda' cabled as well (to the ceiling.)

I have convinced Wally the space dolphin to take a transceiver out halfway to Sirius, thereby linking us to galactic cable.

Oooooooohhh...6,809,014 channels of NOTHING to watch. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif

The problem with Canada is that almost everything is an American puke-back. (no offense) If it's actually Canadian, you can almost never tell because we don't really have a separate identity media-wise from the US. That and the fact that most of the channels we have are American. Oh well. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

I know, I mean we do have identity in other areas, but not really in the media. All of our Saturday morning cartoons really suck!

Ah hear ya!

All of "Canadian Content" can be summed up into 4 things:
Sports
News
Politics
The Red Green Show

Bloody Space: The Imagination Station, trying to be the Sci-Fi Network. Doesn't even carry MST3K. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/mad.gif

And don't even get me started on Teletoon's delusions of Cartoon Networkism. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/frown.gif

On the bright side, Relic Hunter and Andromeda are coming on tonight. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

I personally don't like the Red Green show. Although I think that the Royal Canadian Air Farce is hilarious. I think that This Hour Has 22 Minutes is just trying to be the RCAFarce, and they stink. I don't find them funny at all! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif hahaha... not.

Scelt, BBC runs 2 of the terrestrials, named, oddly enough, BBC 1 and 2, then there's ITV, Channel 4 and (totally pathetic) Channel 5, all run by separate companies.

(I know this is late, but...)

In a fight between Flipper and Wally the space dolphin, pay-per-view would win.

Well, Zaarin if it weren't for cable teevee, I would only get five channels, too. http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/wink.gif ABC, CBS, NBC and FOX are the mainstream networks, and PBS is our version of BBC.

My favorite teevee network? WWW! http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif

Ya, and Sceltor, we also have SKY, big fat Mudda satilite channel, broadcasting a 24Hr News channel, a 24Hr entertainment channel, THREE 24Hr Sports channels, TEN free Movie channels (Kinda like HBO, Showtime, Starz! stuff Like that) 3 movie channels that show 50 year old movies, often neglected.

Then The BBC launched a 24 Hr News service, then so did ITV then CNN popped over launching a Europeoan version which nobody watches, although CNN Headline News channel would work over here.

We also have TEN Religious channels eg the GOD channel. 2 million documentry channels (Which is good 'cause there's always a good WWII documentry on http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif)
we have 20 Music video channels.

So we are in no ways short of channels http://www.xwingalliance.com/forums/biggrin.gif
