Monday 8:30 PM on Seven NetworkIn Season
That's brilliant news! I love City Homicide and all its characters. Hopefully we will get a new season in May, but if it airs on Monday 8:30, won't that interrupt Desperate Housewives broadcast?
Can't wait for season two, should be great.
|im currently in love with Seven....first they commission this awesome show, then they fast-track a whole bunch of US series, then they commission a 2nd season of the show....their brilliant! yea DH wont start until Feb....usualy that ends in late-July/early August, so City Homicide prob wont get to screen until then u gotta remember that none of the new 'fast'tracked' shows will screnn in either december or january dut to the fact their no ratings r recorded....the shows will be held over until February when ratings, and so the shows wont finish till June or so...and Heroes has an extended season this year (30 episodes, inlcuding 6 Heroes:Origins) oh and Lost isnt being fast-tracked...its dosnt start until Feb in the US, but it will screen inline with America (they will screen 16 eps back2back)|
I know that Lost doesn't start in the US until Feb, but Seven will be showing it in Feb as well, so technically, it will be fast-tracked. Also Lost has a reduced 16 episode series, so it will be finished in May.
The other difference between US and Aus airing of episodes is that we take about 24-25 weeks to show a series of 22 episodes. In the US they take about 40, showing other shows and repeat episodes during what we would call their 'ratings' period - but they function on their 'Sweeps' months (I don't understand it completly), but that is when they show new episodes. While shows like Heroes and Prison Break may have begun already, they won't end until May due to their system, meaning that with Seven's downtime in December/January, it won't miss much and it will catch up to the US during the first few months of next year.
As to Desperate Housewives and City Homicide, I read somewhere that Seven was considering a different night for City Homicide - it was only speculation, but that could suggest an earlier start for the show next year.
Another great show I'd reccomend to those looking to fill a hole is a Canadian drama called "Intelligence"......
Season 2 just came to an end with a 2 hour finale, this is one of the most intelligent (excuse the pun), well written dramas I've watched in years, if anyone's looking for some TV time to fill I suggest you grab this
Basically it's about Mary Spalding who heads Vancouver's anti crime unit and Jimmy Reardon who runs a marijuana shipping empire (pot is grown in Canada and shipped into the US) and how they build up a relationship with each other to help them out in their different roles, it's hard to really describe what it's about, you just need to watch it!
Summary from the creator's site:
Intelligence is the story of opposite sides of the law coming together to serve themselves and each other. It is a cat and mouse game of exploitation and cover-up as each camp uses intelligence agents to build their enterprises.
The 13-part hour-long series picks up where the pilot left off. Jimmy Reardon (Tracey), third generation crime boss, and Mary Spalding (Scott) Director of Vancouver's Organized Crime Unit (OCU), made deals with the devil - that is, each other. Jimmy agreed to work with Mary as a star informant, and Mary made a deal to protect Reardon from prosecution. Each will attempt to use the other without getting caught in the act. The season begins with both players cleaning house, getting rid of their worst agents and informants.
Reardon works with a gang of cut-throat dope dealers, pimps and thieves, including his right-hand man Ronnie Delmonico, played by John Cassini (The Handler, Robson Arms). While Jimmy and Ronnie struggle to keep their team in line and out of jail, Spalding has her hands full dealing with a clutch of errant, power hungry intelligence agents anxious to see her fail and their own careers advance. Heading this voracious pack is her immediate underling, veteran agent and loose cannon, Ted Altman, played by Matt Frewer (Taken, Max Headroom).
The critically-acclaimed two-hour series pilot, to be re-broadcast on CBC-TV on Tuesday, September 26 at 8 p.m., just received five Gemini nominations for Best Television Movie, Best Writing (Haddock), Best Direction (Stephen Surjik) and Best Performance by Lead Actor and Actress for Tracey and Scott.
