    I'm still enjoying (just caught up through episode 3 today), but I've noticed weird popups on the screen where they're publishing hints or reminders of characters (so far they haven't reminded me of anything I had forgotten because the show itself is doing a really good job of explaining things for those that are still contemplating starting with this season).

    I know I'm not recording at the first air time, but was wondering if all the episodes are showing this. I really don't like them. If they were just reminding of something that had aired previously that I might have forgotten, it wouldn't be so bad (but still distracting); but what they're doing is introducing new information and saying it will be explained later.

    Am I only getting this because I'm not recording the first airing or is it happening on all the airings? If possible, I would like to avoid them.

    This doesn't happen on the first showing of the week on Wednesday. I saw that they were advertising an enhanced version that played later in the week. Maybe that's what you're seeing.

    Its the enhanced episodes that comes on, Fri or Saturday night.

    You need to record the 1am showing on Thursday mornings.

    I've forgotten what goes on in this one so I'm have to rewatch to post. :-/

    I got one episode with the popups. I see what they are doing, in trying to keep people caught up that might have missed an episode, but jeesh... so annoying if you are following the show and have half a brain.
    I'm glad they are not on every showing.

    Thanks. I'll have to find out why it's recording so late in the week and fix that.
