so really you have 2 choices keep with how the Americans show episodes (hell some shows have a break every couple of weeks) or you can wait till several months after they came out in america to see them all the way through.
but since FX is changing it's name to Fox (pointless change as everyone already seen it as just being Fox) they are trying to keep more in line with the states on shows as they know a lot of people in the UK download shows because they don't want to wait and this costs them ad revenue. so in one way it is a good thing but on the other side of the coin the entire problem just comes from how the american TV system works. altho a lot of UK shows are starting to have mid season breaks, as it builds hype for the second half and boosts the ratings back up.
Thanks for clearing that up.
They have been advertising the name change, i agree it's pointless. But it was interesting to see some of the Walking Dead cast on the advert, i didn't realise the lead, Rick (Andrew Lincoln) was English. I'm keeping the last episode on my Sky+ so i can watch it again closer to the time. Those damn cliffhangers! every week

Yeah i guess so. Blue Bloods starts on the 13th of December. Then NCIS season 10 starts in January. At least they'll be a distraction, along with the Mentalist & Fringe (unless they take a break too
BTW Warehouse 13 seemed to finish abruptly, is that on a winter break as well ?
