Not quite so. We got mad cow desease first, we got proper health care first, we are even getting a police state first. First into the industrial and then technological age and now soon to be the first out too. We are the first to complain, (ask an Aussie). But seriously, some TV series they see first BSG, and Lost come to mind, but you can get them from the net pretty quick (within 24hrs). But we get Dr. Who first, etc.

Maybe the USA gets 1st shot at the stuff so we can check it out & make sure it's safe; so you don't hurt yourself. <<

Learn to use the internet... Knowledge is power. If your smart you can see stuff within the first hours its aired over here. I always heard that you guys got to see stuff a few weeks ahead of us on skyone. i know BSG is a scifi original but its made over there in the UK.

The UK gets (well Sky One) the second half of season 10 of Stargate SG - 1 before anyone else, and gets the second half of season 3 of Stargate Atlantis before the US (although Canada gets that first). The US gets both of these in April.

With regards to games and things, theres a very good reason.

They have to be translated into the language of each contry they're going to be released in. This is by no means a fast process where Europe is concerned. Therefore, its more financially viable to release to the American and Japanese markets, and get a cash flow going.

In most cases of Japanese-developed games (Nintendo, Capcom, etc.), they're released in Japan months before they get to the US, if they ever do.
