          Paperwork is evil. You have my sympathies.

            Thanks I'm about halfway through now. Then I need to catch up on all the other stuff that I haven't been able to do because of my shoulder

            Oh dear! It's raining. That puts paid to all the outside stuff that needs doing.......

            Shame

              *huggles Dee* Glad you had a great time

              *cheers for PNW* I can't wait for that show!

              Sanctuary DVD extras spoilers (Jumble, don't click! )
              Spoiler:
              I just saw the one entitled 'A Day in the Life of Amanda Tapping' that Sil reposted on her LJ. WOWZA. This woman is even more incredible than I thought.


              Now off to make the most of my only day off which *is* actually a day off. Nothing to do, nothing planned. Just lazying at home. I haven't done that in so long! Two jobs are fun building up savings, but my social life and time to myself went down close to zero. Today I plan to read, enjoy the sun (if it decides to actually show itself), go for a walk and do everything I haven't been able to do for so long.

                How unfortunate. I can understand time-consuming, but why expensive? Unless it's to pay the salaries of all those people who do the CGI?

They make their money from ads and since they are out to make money, they can't pay more for a show than what they can pull in via ads. I do not believe this money is given up front, which is why they need financial backers to make the show - i.e. people to invest. The money goes to the production company (i.e. financial backers) they also get money from DVD sales and any merchandise sales (which is why Sanctuary merch is hard to come by compared to other Syfy shows because it would have to be the Beedie Group that would produce it since they have the rights) and any 'international distribution' of the show. The EP's (i.e. M.A.D.) get a salary. I know that in the first season they waived their EP salary to get the show made (they just got paid as directors and actors). I am not sure about subsequent seasons. I do remember that when I was on the set for a visit during the filming of the season 2 opener, it was payday and so checks were being handed out and AT made a quip about actually getting paid that season

                *additional disclaimer* Once again, not an expert.
                Thanks for explaining. Money stuff is not my strong point, so i appreciate someone trying to sort it out for me.

YEAH! If you have cable TV (which most Americans have some form of) you have a good chance of getting BBC America!
                I have Dish network, but to get BBC America we'd have to upgrade to the next "tier" and pay more money. Right now it's a struggle just to convince hubby to keep Dish at all, let alone upgrade.

                Fresh broccoli? Got any dip to go with it? Wait just a minute...

                  Time consuming = expensive As you say, you have to pay the people for the time they work on it if nothing else.

                  I've been thinking that seeing all the news reports with the flooding here and the heat wave over on your side of the pond. We could gladly take some of your excess degrees and send you some of our excess water

                    *hugs WooHoos*

                    NumberSix, you could just smoke the broccoli and skip the dip. It's very effective

                    I see Jumble's paperwork got the best of her

                    And as for those Sanctuary DVD extra's... (I mean, it's not like I get those DVD's anytime soon. )
                    Spoiler:
                    Ayee! *happy dances*

                    It did make me really miss the show.

                      I've been lazy today too. The hubster and I had our massages this morning, went to the grocery and pharmacy, and then out to lunch. I've been fighting with a computer program all afternoon.

                        No, no! I love the heat. I want to keep it. You can have some on Monday when I go back to work.
