Congratulations on FAST LANE, Dave. I'd tend to disagree that the saloonkeeper is less evil in the later episodes, and I won't give away why I think so, but he certainly becomes a somewhat more rounded character. Marianne, I suspect you'll continue to enjoy the series.

FWIW, Murdoch's holdings in the US are not, for the most part, tagged "Sky" so much as Fox. Though this is a terrestrial broadcast network and a set of cable stations (mostly sports, the general- interest channel FX, etc.), and he and his group have been buying into the satellite delivery service DirecTV here, which is somewhat Sky-like.
