    It seems that the fact that they are not heroes to an American audience but are the bad guys is sort of what the whole thing is based on.

    Was Tony Soprano a hero?

    Did the editing folks forget that the show was supposed to come in at under an hour.
    I recorded last night's episode only to find that it ran longer than the hour slot.
    Thought the beginning may have been delayed... but no, it started on time.
    Scheduled a later recording and added 15 minutes, thinking that should be enough... the guide showed that it should have been an hour.
    Looks like it ran somewhere closer to 20 minutes over.
    I'd b###h at DTV, but if the schedule shows an hour, not much they could have done about adjusting the recording time to record all of it.

    I saw the same thing on the 10PM EDT Americans. I also recorded the 12AM Justified, and it too shows an hour, but it looks like the first 12 minutes are the end of the 11PM Americans, and the end of Justified is missing.

    Based on what I could see from the Justified overlap, it looks like about 2 more minutes of the Americans needed to be added to the 10PM recording.

    I have the series set to record. Last night's recording stopped where Agent Beeman shoots the Russian from behind.

    Thanks for the thread.
    A make up episode "Safe House" is scheduled for April 11 at 12am.


    I do not see a make up episode yet for the Justified episode that was affected.

    I am referring to post #105.

    I have not confirmed it, but I have no reason not to believe the observation.

    Justified comes on Tuesday night at 10pm. The Americans comes on Wednesday at 10pm. Maybe FC goofed up on Tuesday also? If they did, wouldn't they post something on ther site, sine it was the finale?

    I recorded Justified for the first time that night, since I heard it might be in 1080p. If it originally aired without an issue Tuesday night, what I recorded was likely a re-run, which would explain why there was no need for FX to apologize.

    Dumb luck I recorded it, tho, because it got me the last missing minute + of The Americans. :p

    Due to recording conflicts my HR24 recorded the 11PM airing which was actually the last 7 minutes of the 10PM airing which totally ruined the whole episode for us. Plus we still missed some of the episode when the recording ended at 11.

    Wondering if anyone else saw this, but this week's episode ("Only You") had a lot of digital breakups. The were in the same place on two different DVRs, so I wonder if it wasn't a problem with the original broadcast? We stopped watching it about 15 minutes in, for fear that we might miss key plot points. I've got it scheduled to re-record right after next week's new episode, so fingers-crossed that one will be OK.

    Thanks. I'm pretty sure I recorded the 10PM episode as well. Guess it was a signal issue in my neck of the woods. :shrug:
