New Doctor Who Logo

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.

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

Pick Your Favorite Summer Show!

In 10 Things I Hate About You, 2009 Pilots, ABC Family, BBC America, Being Human, British TV, Burn Notice, Defying Gravity, Doctor Who, Eureka, favorite shows, HBO, Hung, In Plain Sight, ITV, Make It Or Break It, Nurse Jackie, Programming, Royal Pains, Sci-Fi, Summer Schedule, SyFy, The Listener, The Philanthropist, TNT, Torchwood, True Blood, Uncategorized, USA, Warehouse 13 on 08/12/2009 at 2:23 pm

It’s a been pretty dynamic summer when it comes to television. Both premium and basic cable networks have packed nearly every night of the week with some great, quality programming.

At DVR Life headquarters, it’s be a season rather thick with sci-fi.  The brits have been rocking the genre this year.  We managed to cram the first two seasons of BBC’s Torchwood in just in time to catch Torchwood: Children of Earth, we’re also digging BBC’s latest sci-fi series, Being Human, and caught up with Doctor Who in time for the new movie BBC America treated us to in July and mourned the cliff hanger ending to final season of ITV’s Primeval.  Syfy’s newest scripted offering Warehouse 13, is a quirky fun time and the return of their much beloved Eureka have given us our dose of stateside sci-fi while Defying Gravity is a sci-fi lite multi-national effort between ABC, the brits and Canada’s CTV.

For our teen drama fix, we’ve been turning to ABC Family’s (I know, right? Who would have thought) shows Make It Or Break It, while their new comedy 10 Things I Hate About You has given us a few good laughs.  Looking for action, adventure and smart talk?  USA’s been ruling the ratings with In Plain Sight, Law & Order: Criminal Intent and Burn Notice.  Newbie Royal Pains has been tearing it up on the Nielsen charts, too.

We’ll stop here.  We could keep going on and on – there’s plenty to say about HBO’s new Sunday lineup, as well TNT’s wins and misses.  There’s just way too much great summer fare this year.

Nurse Jackie, 10 Things I Hate About You & Leverage have each recieved one vote under the ‘other’ category.

Doctor Who Returns and Being Human Debuts on BBC America

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.
