In 2009 Fall Season, 2010 Spring Schedule, BBC America, British TV, Doctor Who on 10/07/2009 at 1:46 pm
BBC unveiled a nifty new logo for forever-running sci-fi hit Doctor Who. We know it’s not much, but DW fans have been rather neglected the last year or two, what with only a small handful of specials here and there. BBC America has yet to announce an exact date, but we’re told the next special, The Waters of Mars, will air sometime this fall with two more specials in the next few months. A full new season will finally premiere sometime in spring 2010.
In 2009 Fall Season, 30 Rock, ABC, ABC Family, BBC America, Being Erica, British TV, Brotherhood, Brothers and Sisters, Castle, CBC, Contest, Crash, Criminal Minds, CSI, Daybreak, Desperate Housewives, Doctor Who, Fox, Fringe, Ghost Whisperer, Greek, Grey's Anatomy, Harpers Island, Heroes, Homicide: Life On The Streets, How I Met Your Mother, It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia, ITV, Kings, Law and Order SVU, Life On Mars, My Name Is Earl, NBC, Number 1 Ladies Detective Agency, Parks and Recreation, Primeval, Private Practice, Rescue Me, Sanctuary, Sci-Fi, Showtime, Stephen Fry In America, Supernatural, SyFy, Terminator Sarah Connor Chronicles, The Big Bang Theory, The Game, The Mentalist, The Office, The Unit, Top Chef, TV on DVD, Two & a Half Men, Ugly Betty, Worst Week on 08/26/2009 at 5:43 pm
Along with being the biggest month of the year for both series and season premiere’s for TV, September is also one of the biggest months for TV on DVD releases. Don’t ask us why. We think it’s kinda stupid to wait until September as, like we’ve already pointed out, the month is crammed with plenty of stuff to watch on TV AND it doesn’t give people much time to catch up before the next season begins, beyond the fact that it’s a wallet-buster. It’s a massive month of overload, in our book.
But that doesn’t mean we can’t still be excited! We’re especially looking forward to Fox’s mind-bending first season of Fringe, the fourth season of The CW’s cult-hit Supernatural (on blu-ray to boot!), Canadian sci-fi lite dramedy Being Erica‘s first season and, of course, the third season of NBC’s comedy giant 30 Rock.
In anticipation of the release of Fringe‘s first season on September 8th, they setup a cool website in which you can enter to win a visit to the show’s set in Vancouver, among other things. Once you enter you can watch a video about the difficulties of filming the episode The Ghost Network and then play a game which, if you answer correctly, gives you five extra entries into that set visit contest. And here’s a little hint for our readers: you may wanna brush up on some episodes of ABC Family’s Greek for some help on the game. Check out the site: Completethepattern.com

In BBC America, Being Human, British TV, Doctor Who on 05/28/2009 at 1:21 am
The BBC America summer schedule is finally coming out. The network is notorious for not bothering to release scheduling and programming plans so it’s pretty good to get some news.
First off, the beloved sci-fi series Doctor Who will be returning. The network will broadcast the five Doctor Who specials, starting with the xmas one, on June 27th and the second slated for July. The others have yet to be scheduled.
Premiering on BBCA is a new six part series called Being Human. Not expecting the series to air here in the states I took a different route in acquiring the show, so we’ll just say I’ve previewed it for you.
The show has a rather great premise: A werefolf, a vampire and a ghost walk into a bar…just kidding. A werewolf, a vampire and a ghost share a house together. All three battle their nature, the vampire trying not to convert humans, the werewolf trying to manage his monthly “outings” without hurting anyone or anything and the ghost girl battling loneliness and trying her best to be seen and heard.
It has a great mix of graphic humor and horror and I wholly suggest tuning in for it’s July 25th premiere. You can see whole mess of previews and promos on here.
Also coming sometime, though no dates have been announced yet, are Survivors, a post apocalypse series following a group of people after a virus wipes out 99% of the world’s population, and The In-Betweeners, a soapy show about the awkwardness of teen life.
