Hot Reels

Hot Reels just started a few minutes ago on Channel 4. This is the kind of thing that proves how much better British network TV is than just about anywhere else in the world (even Ireland, ’cause we kinda rip them off). Would something like this ever be broadcast on US network TV? I don’t think so.

It reminds me of the time BBC 2 showed Patlabor a few years ago, in Japanese with English subtitles. I haven’t seen many anime films, but that was the best in my experience. Would anybody else except BBC 2 or Channel 4 show such a movie, in its original version (as far as I can tell Patlabor is only available on video over here in a dubbed version)? Hell no.
