NBC Gets Medical

In 2009 Fall Season, 2009 Pilots, Mercy, NBC, Trauma on 09/11/2009 at 3:15 pm


E.R. was a very successful series for NBC.  At fifteen seasons, the series was the longest-running medical drama to in air primetime, receiving a record 123 Emmy nominations, 22 of which they won.  And that all came to end last season.  NBC must have looked at the situation, said “where do we go from here?”, panicked a little, and then green lit not one, but two new medical dramas.

Here’s some behind the scenes peeks at each.  We must admit that Mercy has a pretty exciting cast.

Robin Hood Returns!

In 2009 Fall Season, BBC America, British TV, Robin Hood on 09/11/2009 at 1:17 pm

Robin Hood

At long last Robin Hood is returning stateside!  This weekend marks the beginning of the third season of the BBC/BBC America c0-production.  Season two ended with a heart breaker of a plot-line: the murder of Robin’s beloved Marian in the Holy Land.  Not quite sure where Robin will go from this point – I imagine it will be nothing short of all out war?  The problem there is the updated Brit-folk hero series makes it a point for the good guys (i.e. Robin) to kill very little, if at all, so we’re not expecting a bloodbath.

The third season of Robin Hood begins tomorrow, Saturday September 12th at 9pm on BBC America.

True Blood Season Finale Preview

In HBO, Season Finale, Summer Schedule, True Blood on 09/11/2009 at 10:51 am

True Blood

It’s sad but true, folks: Season 2 of True Blood comes to an end this evening.  Judging by the intense cliff-hangers they end just regular episodes with, we’re expecting a doozy for the season finale.  It’ll be sad when the season ends – it’s been an exciting one for both the fans and HBO network, chock full of crazy gory, sexy badness and killer ratings.  The show is set to return for it’s third season in June of 2010.

Don’t wanna wait that long?  Grab yourself a Tru Blood, kickback and start reading the Sookie Stackhouse novels, then!

During a True Blood marathon last Sunday (poor make-up for having no new episode!), HBO broadcast this promotional trailer for the season finale.  It’s basically a different edit of the True Blood/Depeche Mode video we posted the other night, minus the  band footage, shorter and with more footage from the season.

True Blood‘s second season finale airs this weekend, Sunday September 13th at 9pm on HBO.
