No not yet.  And they usually take it off just before Christmas and it doesn't return for a couple of months.

Wow. That's kinda sad. In my place, there's already the three episodes subtitled (it comes out usually one day later, or two, at maximum) and the premiere is already dubbed. Warner Channel is even already airing it at cable! I feel bad for you, brits. It shouldn't take that long. Fortunatelly you can watch online. :)

I always watch at US pace (either live stream or downloaded the next morning) here in the UK, the network that airs it has a habit of crudely cutting anything it deems inappropriate for a before 9.00PM screening.

so true!

I don't think E4 actually cuts the new episodes of TBBT, it's only the daytime repeats that have certain scenes cut from them.

Zhalen, this has nothing to do with E4 "deeming things inappropriate"; as a free-to-air broadcaster and a subsidiary of Channel 4, E4 is obligated to adhere to OFCOM's pre-watershed decency and standards regulations, which prevents potentially offensive material from being shown before 9pm. If E4 were to show the crass or rude references and jokes made in some episodes of TBBT before the watershed, they risk being fined or even having more serious consequences taken against them. They're doing their job.

If you want to be angry about someone for the daytime repeats for being cut, I would suggest you complain about OFCOM having decency regulations to protect British children from viewing offensive material and bad language, or blame the TBBT writers for including the offensive stuff in the first place. But then again, complaining about those things would be ridiculous, wouldn't it?

Sorry but this is Factually wrong, they cut new episodes if they are shown before 9.00pm.  For example, In first showing of The Tenure Turbulence they cut all the trash talk between Sheldon and Raj, in the The Cooper-Kripke Inversion they cut all the talk between Sheldon and Kripke in Sheldons office at the end and don't get me started on Skank Reflex, that's never been shown in its entirety. I have no issue with the afternoon or early repeats, that's common sense.  Now The only reason I ever watch new, on E4,  is to see what they cut at 8.30pm, it's not the writers fault E4 could simply move new episodes back to 9.00pm.

I wish they'd stop showing the  Sheldon and Penny kiss followed by Sheldon giving Penny her bra back in the advert on E4 :( .

I know it's to pull in the unspoiled but it makes me sad with no Shamy in the ad ! 

ive not seen any trailers but I can guess what people will be thinking and then their response at it not being real!

Do we think there are now enough forum members based in the UK to warrant an E4 Pace discussion thread? That way, those unspoiled can discuss episodes they've seen rather than those that are yet to air in the UK.

I'll set one up if we think it would work. If not, we can always stick with this thread to post our comments on the latest UK aired episodes.
