    I haven't, and I didn't even know it already started with showing it..

    I have one question, is it the same old crew, or new season is about Tonys little sister?!

    Just saw the first episode and my doubts were dispelled (although I will wait a few more episodes before passing a final judgement), it is rare such a show (I doubt anyone would argue the first and second series were not cast driven) can survive such a change in cast.

    I've watched it, and I like it a lot..
    I thought they'll mess it up by changing the crew (almost) completely, but it's really great..

    Start is very fast and dynamic! And series actually kept that "freshness" from previous seasons..We'll see what will happen in next episodes, will they manage to keep it up, or will quality fall!

    One question tho, when are episodes broadcasted?! I mean, I'm interested in when will they pop up on internet, because that is the only way I can watch it!

    I'm not sure if it lets you watch it in your country, but you could always try www.channel4.com/watch_online

    Oops, I thought it didn't start until next week. Season 1 was absolutely brilliant but season 2 was utter shit (they went way over the top, the chances that that much stuff can happen to just 9 people is just absurd). I'm going to give 3 a chance but I'm not holding my breath just yet. Is it coming round on Channel 4 too or am I better off sticking with the online player?

    Toni: it's on Thursdays at 10pm (E4)

    Well, this third season started pretty much with the bang.....We'll see how it will develop!

    Also, thanks for the info on the day of broadcasting!

    Not at all War, best way I can think is sitcom + drugs + twisted sense of humour.

    That's basically Real World. Just add in sex, sluts, and mentally unstable 20 year olds.

    I didn't expect this series to be so much better than the previous one. I'm not missing the old group at all. (only seen the first two eps btw)

    Heh heh, I thought it was some sort of gamer skinning shop-talk kinda show. [​IMG]

    Looks like 90210 meets Degrassi Junior High but without all the SoCal sunshine and "aboots". [​IMG]
