Filmfour? Film4!

From BBC News:

"Channel 4's film channel, Film4, will relaunch as a free service on 23 July with a premiere of the Oscar-winning comedy Lost in Translation. In the process it will become the UK's largest free film channel, available to 18m homes, the broadcaster says. Around one-quarter of the films shown on the channel will come from the UK, but they will be broken up with advertisements for the first time."

July 23rd happens to be my last night in San Diego! D'oh! But it's a good homecoming, to be able to work off jetlag with my favorite film channel. I can easily put up with the ad breaks if they keep the standard of films as high as it's always been. Yes. It's that good.
