    I don't understand hte point of this: one can no longer access you on TV Catch-up and then we're rediredted to ADVERTS and clips. Which brains in your organisation thought that was good marketing? Unless your development plan is to lose alot of viewers. TV is not that important , but you're making it increasingly less appealing and making a good book seem more inviting - or other chaannels!!

    Touch wood, I have very little trouble with Demand 5, but I HAVE had trouble with ITV picture and BBC buffering. I am guessing, but maybe a lot depends on the computer being used, and the service provider??????

    What happened to the subtitles? I really enjoy this programme, but I find the actors often speak far too fast or have poor diction, so using the subtitles really helps me to keep up. Please get them working again!

    extremely frustrating.....this won't play. I have tried 6 times and after the adverts it either goes Black or freezes after a minute or two. I hate to say it, but Channel 4 is perfect, never a problem with anything I try to watch on there, but always a problem on Channel 5....please do something to improve your playback, it's so frustrating!

    This episode showed us just how desperate and ruthless Jane has become and how far he is willing to go in order to gain information on RJ. Thought that was quite sad. I think he is playing a dangerous game with Lorelei though. On another note it's nice to see Simon's name as Producer in the credits!

    @Bee Glad you're still around, we've been here since day 1! I completely agree with you, it's been absolutely fantastic so far, and it sounds as though it will only get better. I think every episode so far has been great, but those 2 are certainly the standouts. @Lanny Agree on the positioning of the posts, much better this way.

    Oh, forgot to say I like the reverse order of the posts: more convenient to look for new posts at the TOP rather than having to scroll all the way to the bottom. Thanks Channel 5!

    This was a pretty good opening to the new season! Although the ACTUAL murder case wasn't my main focus of attention, who the killer turned out to be surprised me: it wasn't as predicable as SOME of the cases from season 4. Good twist at the end of the episode!

    Yes Con I'm still here. Like you I'm watching US pace. I think this is the best season yet. No spoilers from me either. Still watch Channel 5 though.

    What is wrong with this god-forsaken curse of a television channel?. I'm waiting for 'Perfect Murder' at 10.00 and low and behold no film? Any reasons.

    Yes Con I'm still here. Like you I'm watching US pace. I think this is the best season yet. My favourites Devil's Cherry and Red Dawn. Glad it's back on Channel 5.

    I may have already seen the first 5 episodes of this season, but I'm still excited for you guys, it's a brilliant premiere and I can't wait to see it again in...19 minutes! Say, are any of the long standing users still on here, Bee for example?

    Thank you! Thank you, Con it's a great track and it was driving me crazy trying to find it. Have to say channel 5 trailer beats the pant off the US ones I've seen on youtube.

    @Sandy, there is now an advert/promo for the new season on TV, fear not! As some of you may know I follow US pace, so I'm now up to the special 100th episode (5.05 coming this Sunday), but I still rewatch on CH5 and post on here with you guys. Don't worry, no spoilers from me, I'll just say this: this is gonna be a GREAT season. By the way, this episode was renamed 'The Crimson Ticket'.
