Can some tell me what is going on with the broadcast schedule of Farscape? The schedule this week has been: Monday episode 1; Tuesday episode 7; Wednesday episode 2; and Thursday and Friday will be 4 then 3. Is there some reason they are not being broadcast in order?

I love Criminal Minds but currently we are left with a cliffhanger The Fisher King Part one but no mention of Part two. Can't afford Sky so will
I ever be permitted to see Part two of the Fisher King?

I really enjoy watching Monkey Life on Pick channel, relaying on subtitles but since the New Year there are no subtitles so I miss quite a bit. Please is it possible to bring back the subtitles on this programme? I really really would appreciate it very much.
many thanks

Kat: There does appear to be a problem with subtitles on Pick at the moment for some reason. There are a number of programmes on the channel that were subtitled but the subtitles seem not to be appearing for some episodes and are appearing on others.

However, this website has no connection to Pick TV. Pick is owned by Sky. You can use the link at the top of this page to go to the website. Use the "Contact Us" section on that website to make a complaint.

Can you clarify what is happening with the broadcast of Farscape? The series was being broadcasted from the beginning but has suddenly stopped. Is there a reason for this? Is it ever coming back, or has Pick dropped the show?
