Well this is very, VERY exciting because I wasn’t expecting to be writing this at all given last year’s response. However the one true version of Fort Boyard appears to be back on screens this evening on France 2 at 8:35pm (7:35 UK time) for the series premiere, starring lots of old Miss Frances and a man.
The exciting thing is I don’t know how easy it’s going to be to watch outside of France. Happily last year they put new episodes up on the website for a fortnight which you could view internationally but there’s no guarantees they’ll do it this year. It will be on pluzz.fr, but not outside of France (anyone coming up with a cheap way around it get’s 20 Botherpoints, although I will pay to use a proxy if necessary). Maybe someone will stream it live on Justin.tv, like with Schlag den Raab, although I wouldn’t be getting my hopes up. And anyway, I’m not going to get the chance to watch it until tomorrow anyway, so.
