Definitely. And you'd hope that with the new season around the corner we'd get more posters.

yeah, but a lot of people were disillusioned after s3. and shows usually don't get new fans this late into the game.

Have you been to the BBC America site?

Unlike almost every other small show I've ever seen (or even any big ones), all of the first three seasons of OB are available to stream free of charge.

IOW, they're gambling not on DVD sales to bring in revenues but on the quality of the show to bring in new viewers.

Remember, there are only 30 episodes so far, which means that someone who wants to binge-watch over a long weekend can still do so.

Please don't try to discourage new viewers (especially as mod of a board devoted to the show). I've always disliked people who claim to be fans but try to tell me that I should dislike moments that moved my heart, purely because I like to believe that my heart is more open to truth, as experienced, than to cynicism or bitter persuasion.

It's actually pretty common that the older a show is, the less "new" fans they have. Because most fans come around during the first two seasons, generally, when the show is new, and they don't have a lot to catch up on. This applies to literally every show.

I'm not even remotely saying we can't or won't have ANY new viewers. Please stop putting words in my mouth.

Can't believe there's only a month to go and we know basically nothing.

What I know is that the paradigm of "television" is changing. I keep hearing about "you should be watching this show" long after it premieres, largely because broadcast networks seem to be losing more and more viewership to "on demand," and there's enough appetite for "on demand that I've never seen before" that amazon.com, hulu.com, etc. are sponsoring shows that have never been broadcast over the regular airwaves.

The result is that I'm personally spending very little time with my actual television switched on, which makes it difficult for a small, good show to grow anywhere but a start-up like BBC America, which seems to be willing to put assets into OB that come close to what the original Auntie Beeb put into the Doctor -- and that's survived for decades as being "a cult show."

Do I want OB to go through many actresses taking the roles of the "Leda Clones?" Absolutely not. But when people still barely know that the show exists (let alone have watched a single episode, I think that pessimism about the show's trajectory are based on an antique model and that almost all "programming" is in a state of flux.

There's quite a bit more on the BBC America website.

And (technically) the new trailer was released yesterday, but I only saw it today....

Well that was timely of us to mention knowing nothing then.
