Yes, I know I'm very late discovering this show, but remember, I do live in Japan. Some wonderful people having been sharing the shows and putting them up on Youtube, and conveniently, they are in ten minute blocks (not sure how legal that is, but I'm not complaining).
I've been watching both the Aussie season and US show. Both current episodes and old. While watching a bit, I do always have a kimono in hand and am carefully taking it apart, so I still feel like I'm working.
