Coaty mentioned "Shameless" earlier. We watched the first 2 of this series last night. No we still don't have Sky. We were going to sort out quite soon... but then we were told about the following website by a lovely young lad we met at the weekend.
It's like [www.youtube.com
] but you can watch whole movies (sorted by genre) and loads of TV shows, past and present.
You don't need to register to watch stuff (only to upload it)... oh and some of the pages take a little while to load - but we've now seen Dark City (which we've been looking out for for ages, as Alan had seen it, but I hadn't), Red Eye, Trainspotting, Shameless, and we're now wading through Gimme Gimme Gimme from the very first episode! It's great!
Be warned... it's very addictive!
