I have been a bit under the weather the last couple of days, hence the lack of updates when there has actually been lots going down in TV town.
2010 is a date most Lost fans will be interested in. That is the date that ABC have earmarked for the end of the island based series, in a departure from the norms of US TV and hopefully not to the detriment of the show. 48 more episodes have been ordered, and they will play out over 3 years in 16 episode seasons, taking the grand total to 120 come May ’10. I wonder if ratings will drop over the next couple of years followed by a sharp rise in season 6?
The English Premier League have launched legal proceedings against Youtube for copyright infringement. Are the Premier League really as stupid as they sound? Do they really think that by suing the largest of the aggregated video sites the problem will go away? No, it will shift to Dailymotion (in fact it already has), where I can pick up goals around the world minutes after they are scored. The only way for the premier league, and all other leagues for that matter to take charge of the situation is to offer up the clips for free with advertising on their official sites. Or learn the hard way that you cannot govern the internet.
Scrubs will have a cliffhanger ending this year (I am betting that JD does something to sabotage Elliot’s happiness), which is risky because there is a good chance NBC will not renew the show next year. The word on the street is that if they are cancelled on the peacock then ABC will pick up the show.
Isn’t Heroes great? That’s all I have to say on that subject! Apologies if I have posted this link before, but here are details of season two that should whet the appetite.
It’s a bank holiday here in the UK, so I forgot it was a Monday and I haven’t acquired my weekly fixes of Entourage and Sopranos, along with all those Fox animation thingies. So i’m off to do all that now, and watch them from under the duvet.
