Okay, that was just weird. Tonight, E4, a relatively small British TV channel owned by Channel 4 (and broadcasters of Misfits), is showing the pilot and first season episode of US TV show Glee. Simon Pegg. star/writer of Spaced, Shaun Of The Dead, Paul and more is watching and tweets;
About to get into the wonderful world of Glee on E4, starring the brilliant Jane Lynch. Heard so many good things. Here we go.
Half an hour in he adds;
Love it so far.
Then, in the break between episodes, the E4 continuity voice pops up, telling people there’s the next episode coming up and not to go anywhere.
“Keep watching, especially you Simon Pegg.”
Simon Pegg freaks slightly. Well, wouldn’t you?
I’m so freaked out, the TV just spoke to me personally. That hasn’t happened since it asked me to kill all those nuns in 1995.
I think anyone else who was watching should pretend that we all got an individual message and that it’s a new service from E4. Just to freak Simon out even more.
