Only four episodes at one hour each, not too much time investment.

Note that a 'first-run only' season pass will not record any episodes as apparently TiVo is considering the date that series was originally shown in Britain as the first-run. You will need to keep the Season Pass default of 'Repeats and first-run'.

This has been the case with several other British series is, at least, a logical bug in the system. Most people believe that 'first-run' should mean 'first-run' in the US, but there is no way to separately list that.

Usually happens to Canadian series too (eg, Flashpoint).

This is becoming more and more common as more BBC series make their way to the US. And it's a real PITA. TiVo should give a little thought to fixing this. Or working with Tribune to fix it.

All it need be is first run on the given channel, since season passes are channel specific. A shame they can't fix this sort of thing.
