...unless you have a subscription to Paramount+. Channel 5 are playing
the same trick that they did with "Halo" just over a month ago. This new
Sci-Fi series has the pilot episode showing on Ch5 at 2200. To see the
rest you'll have to take out a subscription to Paramount+.

Somebody complained in the Radio Times letters page about Halo, but they
haven't made it unambiguous for Le Brea. They do it better when Channel
4 play the same trick by use of the word "only".

I checked my EPG for next Monday. Le Brea was missing.

Is truth stranger than fiction? The timing couldn't be better!

The Guardian slagged it off, but vaguely said it was on Channel 5. They
didn't even say when it was/is on. That's typical of the Graun, who
often review something without saying whether it's a TV programme, a
theatrical production or a magic lantern show.

Saw the first seven eight minutes on P+.

It's pretty fast-moving. Like ER when it started. Or 9-1-1 before they
introduced all the woke stuff.

I'll catch the rest later.

Just in case anyone is interested...

Via Sky Cinema, the Paramount+ channel ostensibly includes Season 1 of
"La Brea".

But there are currently only eight episodes of Season 1 (which consists
of 10 episodes) available.

Numbers 2 and 10 are missing. (!!)

A query at Sky revealed that the difficulty is at the Paramount+ end of
things, that they are aware of the problem and hope to get it resolved.

Having watched Ep 1, the absence of Ep 2 is a bit of a bind.

Fingers crossed.
