Why is 'Shaun of the Dead' always on ITV2?

They seem to rotate the same films.

And Hot Fuzz.

Leftie - 19 Aug 2013 22:17:20 (#2 of 384)

They only have about 6. I remember when the first two Ice Age films were only two weeks in a row or something like that.

SlasherBindman - 19 Aug 2013 22:17:46 (#3 of 384)

And 28 Days Later.

Can't someone nip down to Blockbuster?

Because there's someone somewhere who still can't remember some of the words.

Leftie - 19 Aug 2013 22:41:07 (#6 of 384)

They are doing a live blog on The Guardian.

It can't be difficult - half of all the words spoken are 'fuck'.

One or other of the Bridget Jones films is on tv every week. It's the law.

JohnIlly - 20 Aug 2013 14:29:34 (#9 of 384)

It's about time ITV started their annual re-run of ALL the Bond films. I believe that it is a condition of their franchise.

MaisonLazlique - 20 Aug 2013 14:39:45 (#10 of 384)

ITV great is great!

We've watched the first two Bournes and The Shawshank Redemption on there recently. It's a great antidote to the 9pm Sunday undemanding entertainment desert.

EchoChamber - 20 Aug 2013 14:41:39 (#11 of 384)

Antidote to, or addition to?

solomongursky - 20 Aug 2013 14:47:04 (#12 of 384)

Sky have bought the Bonds, that's why one of the Bournes is on every month.

ITV has also bought the company that made Shaun of the Dead, so presumably they get mates rates to show it

JohnIlly - 20 Aug 2013 16:02:48 (#14 of 384)

When a company gets the right o show a film it lasts for a specified length of time so they show it as often as they can. The assumption now is that there are so many channels* that people don't mind repeats since they missed it first time.

* mainly showing crap

MonsoonBloom - 21 Aug 2013 09:56:21 (#15 of 384)

They need films that will get 100,000 to 250,000 and these are films that will every time they are shown. They're also quite old so cheap to show. And it helps if they're British as they will be even cheaper through ITV stake in c4.

Leftie - 21 Aug 2013 10:32:58 (#16 of 384)

I can't believe the film is nearly 10 years old.

TheExcession - 21 Aug 2013 11:54:46 (#17 of 384)

I can't believe anyone watches ITV2.

moto748 - 21 Aug 2013 11:58:45 (#18 of 384)

Yeah, ITV3 is where it's at.

CaptainBlack - 21 Aug 2013 11:59:12 (#19 of 384)

No, ITV4 is where the real men hang out.

moto748 - 21 Aug 2013 12:01:08 (#20 of 384)

That too. Although I'm currently enjoying classic episodes of The Bill on the Drama channel. Burnside! Bent Don Beech! Great stuff.
