They can tell, you know....
Sky One repeats 24. And Atlantis. Heck, I think it even repeats Enterprise, despite the fact that no-one's watching first time around either.
But does it repeat Dead Like Me? Nope. Why not? Because I screwed up setting the timer. They know.
That's how they choose what to repeat. Bastards...
And as for re-starting DS9: we were up for trying to get into that until we saw that there was an episode every day
. Can't keep up with that. Uh-uh.
