Screwed Again!

Been waiting all through '04 for the '04 season of New Yankee Workshop to appear on Discovery Home and Leisure (Europe), not a damn thing, only re-runs. Then last week new ads. appear for the NYW. I check the website, yep the '04 season starts today. I tune up the VCR, get the snacks and a cold one ready for the off, double check the listings again just in case, yep it's the "The Butterfly Table". 2-30 comes, I hit the record button, Oh f@#$ it , the bloody planters bench again.
I bloody hate Discovery H & L when they do this. Screwed again

I'm with you on that one micheal. I remember them promising to show certain one and it turning out entirly different. I like the NYW even though I'm not a cabient or furniture maker. I like it for the techniques i learn, unfortunatly with so many repeats i know them by heart.

When you and they say "new" series, is it really "new" or is that the series hasn't been shown in the UK before and is still some years behind the series in the states?
