      Hi Emm,

      You can watch both series in, I could not wait that long, especially being a contributor on other TB forums, not to be able to speak to our American buddies, when they were sooo far ahead of us.

    I am in London and have seen all 24 episodes thus far, I cannot believe that we will have to wait until June next year for season 3.

    Thank goodness FX has picked it up and Channel 4 not far behind.

    It cannot come soon enough, all the books have been read and re-read and I am feeling like a (non user drugs junkie), when will I get my next TB fix????
