    US version was GracePoint. It was filmed in Canada and cancelled after the one series

    Gracepoint, thanks. Identical save for his accent. How weird was that. Surely that didn't make a difference to American viewers, did it?

    I think that's why no one tuned in, including me. It was virtually the same for several episodes before differing much and Fox changed it in look and feel to supposedly appeal to a US audience. Everyone had already seen the story play out on Broadchurch on BBC America, so why tune in to the same thing on Fox. It was pretty much doomed from the start

    I tried to watch the first episode. Got about halfway through and was completely bored.

    I just managed to make it through the whole thing. It did get a little better toward the end. A little more guerrilla-ish, if you will. I'll watch another one anyway.

    I set up a MANUAL recording to catch CLASS on BBCA at 10PM on Sat night just after 9PM Doctor Who - and it looks like the TIVO thinks that is another occurence of Doctor Who - so I got the manual recording and a 2nd copy as Doctor Who. Looks like the Schedule doesn't really know what it is ... sigh ... but at least its there ...

    The Doctor Who episodes were an hour and 10 minutes long so Class didn't start until 10:10pm. If you started your manual recording at 10:00pm it would have assigned the name of the current show to the recording which would be Doctor Who.

    'Orange Is The New Black' - Netflix

    Season 5 was leaked early.

    It was reported in the news that a hacker tried to extort money from Netflix and threatened to release the season before it's official June release. Netflix didn't respond and episodes started to appear on sites.

    That hacker is a fool. No way Netflix pays, but it may energize Netflix to beef up their security and DRM to prevent future leaks.

    It wasnt taken from Netflix, but from a post production company server, along with some shows from a couple of other networks.

    I'm aware. That does mean Netflix cannot tighten security by pressuring their contractors to increase security, or by changing to other contractors, or bringing more in-house. And increasing security across the board, including better DRM, as part of a complete overhaul.
