Cape Wrath

Tuesdays 10pm C4 (July 2007)

The long delayed Cape Wrath finally debuts on C4 on Tuesday (it was supposed to air back in March), and it seems to be a British series with a British cast set in Britain.


The basic premise is a family on witness protection sent to a new home where nothing is quite what it seems - Meadowlands.


However, it seems now even with UK series the American's get to see them first - it appears to have been airing on Showtime as "Meadowlands" for a few weeks.

Is it me or can anyone at c4 pronounce wrath right?????????????

Americans would find saying ''wrath'' difficult anyway???

It's pronounced "Cape Wroth" - which I think is correct, it's Big Brother who've screwed it up by pronouncing it "Wrath"

I've just seen the next 2 episodes on TV Links, bloody hell this is getting good.

It's a bit violent though I must admit!

I pronounce - well, I DID pronounce it Wrath, but Wroth seems to of slipped in now =P

I've watched the first and got the second to watch - still undecided about it really.


Not doing brilliantly though for C4 - just 1.1m last night, down 500,000 from last week.


Anyone know how well it performed for Showtime in the US (as "Meadowlands") - that could win it a second series I suppose.

Well I am! Enjoyed the first one, second one seemed to tie up a few points, whilst opening up a couple of new threads...next weeks does look like a craker!

Caught up with episode two. After the first I wasn't sure it was worth sticking with, but after the second it's looks like it'll be worth it.


Couple of things to note - firstly, it has very short breaks (around 2 minutes compared to the usual 4mins) probably due to the running time on Showtime - and secondly, the C4 ECP terribly annoying covering up the last line of each page of credits - even though I couldn't care less who the make-up assistant or whoever is!
