So RTE are fucking around again, and Gilmore Girls has disappeared off the scedules. If you're an Irish fan, tell them you want it back, because they really think no one watches it! Email RTE at complaints@rte.ie

Hey, Gilmore Girls is back on again next Saturday, according to the Sunday Times telly pages and Sky Digital tv guide.
RTE must just have been doing that annoying thing where it randomly stops showing things for a while - bastards!

Mail them and complain anyway! Fans of the very few decent programmes shown by RTE should stand up and be counted. ;)

It's really annoying, because my TV license goes to fund crap like The Big Bow Wow, but I don't get to see the few programmes I want to watch. I mean, I literally watch no home-grown RTE shows, because they're usually terrible, but I'm still paying for them.

Okay! I wonder if the few email we sent last time get the Gilmore Girls back on the air!

I agree that it is really unfair that RTE get the license money no matter what they show. And that we have to pay it even if you never watch RTE. I'd love to be able to pay a license fee to the BBC instead and get all the cool digital channels!

I'll send an email to RTE and let you know if I get a reply.

This is the reply that I got from RTE for my gushing e-mail. (Gushing about the Gilmore Girls, and not RTE, obviously!)
It's surprisingly nice!


Dear Grainne,
Thank you for your e-mail in relation to the very
excellent series Gilmore Girls.
We are currently showing the remaining episodes of
Series 3 and our Acquisitions Department confirms that
we have Series 4 under licence. We have no
transmission date as yet, but it definitely will be
shown.

Best regards
Nina Ward

Heh, I got a snarkier e-mail - possibly because I put on my journalism ranty-hat in my own mail!
