A big "thank you" to crazybutsound, who surprised me with a package the other day. Inside: a little bear dressed up for Halloween in a carrot suit (soooo cute!), and a DVD with the first two episodes of Hustle; a BBC show that I've never seen.
Guess what, Jem? My DVD player can read the disc! I don't know how you did it, but whatever your method, that seems the way to bypass the PAL problem. I'm going to try to watch at least the first episode tonight. Thanks!
