But there’s a good reason: we were getting up-to-date with Channel 4′s <cite>Catastrophe</cite>, which is a great sitcom.</p> <p>We only started watching it a few weeks ago. Luckily the whole thing is <a href=”http://www.channel4.com/programmes/catastrophe”>available on All 4</a>. Thank the tech &amp; TV industries for catchup services.</p> <p>Channel 4′s even seems to have become stable, and improved its UI. It’s only about a year ago that we stopped watching <cite>Homeland</cite> because the playback was so choppy. And we couldn’t record it because it was on Sunday night at the same time as <cite>Downton Abbey</cite>, and we were recording that. (We only have a simple DVR.)</p> <p>Though it had well and truly jumped the shark by then.
