They're even showing HOMELAND here in the Netherlands! The last few years networks here have been pretty quick to adopt cool new shows. And not far behind on episodes either. Not like back in the olden days when shows would run here several seasons behind the originals. I think downloading/streaming might have something to do with that.

Ok, so we're 9 episodes behind the US for New Girl and 12 for Homeland, but at least their going to be shown on prime time TV
