Not that it's a laughable matter...
Perhaps I should try some Tippex?

I am, or rather was, a very keen cinemagoer and had to put up with censorship and the stupidity of some of it. Censor a movie for swearing for example and put a high age restriction on it and then remove the very things that gave the movie the high age restriction in the first place. So, I've built up a sort of resistance to "in your face" logos such as are depicted on the Oscar Channel. See, I KNOW the name of the channel without having to have it taking up a large portion of the screen.

For me it's not too much of a sacrifice as I have in my dvd collection a lot of the films that will no doubt be showing here. Any other film that I may be interested in I'll go out and buy on dvd. Or look if it's available on You Tube. If you haven't looked there you'll be surprised at the movies that are available and legally so. So not really that much of a sacrifice. But, I refuse to acknowledge that there's any need for the Mnet, and Oscar, logos to be so large and "in your face". Ridiculous.

Re the channel's full list - I noticed something unusual earlier today, and that's developed into a possibly positive theory why we still don't have it
But I don't want to start any wrong rumours, so let's just remain simply annoyed for now

And moving the makeshift lists to this new forum page.

Only one complaint, no Shawshank Redemption again... it's popular M-Net, should have been on one of these two pop-ups (IMO)

The EPG's 2008 synopsis date for this is wrong - the description given and the given actress, Jane Fonda, is for the 1977 version.

So which one is it? There is a 1977 version, 2008 version and a 2014 version. Is it supposed to be the 1977 movie with Jane Fonda?

What a feast awaits! Already making mental notes on how and where to free up space to record all the "must see's".
