Channel 9 are actually going to start showing the second half of the final series of Sex and the City tonight. I won't have to be a poor, Carrie'n'Big-deprived Aussie girl anymore. Why in HELL they showed the first half in March-April and held the rest over til now, I'll never know. Prolly something to do with that Ratings Pie, and wanting an extra large share of same.
But I'm telling you now. If one more bloody Aussie TV network gets me hooked on one more TV series they've bought on the cheap from overseas, only to show 6 episodes during the Summer season, change its timeslot 3 times during that period, then move it to 1.30am for 3 more episodes (on 3 different nights mind you), and then not bother to finish the series at all... only to begin the second series in primetime a year later as if nothing happened (ala the Shield and Scrubs and countless others lately)...
Well. There will be bloodshed. Ooooh yes. *sharpens claws*
Or at the very least a good tanty. And maybe a mediocre letter to the paper. If I'm in the mood.

Is this the 6th season of sex and the city....that is my favorite show....i love it, i bought season 1 and i am going to buy the rest of them.
I would go insane if that was me! Not sure if you have The OC down there, but I love it! The 1st season ended in the spring and now the 2nd season won't start until early November. And now they're going to move the show to the busiest night of the week - Thursday. There are so many shows to watch on Thursdays that just about every other night of the week is lacking. I don't know why they don't share the love.
If you need to release pent-up agressions, you can always spank me ;-)
The Shield and Scrubs? I'd be well fucked if they moved my timeslots and made me miss 'em.
Can Aussie network executives fight well? They'd have a battle royal on their hands!
Adria I think the final season is the 6th season... but anyways, it was fab. "This program is rated MA: 15+. It contains strong sex scenes, coarse language and sexual references."
Six feet under, which was on right after (oh heavenly monday nights) had a similar warning, but add 'drug use' for Nate smokin a pipe.
Yaya darlin', we sure do have The OC. It's taken me a while to get into it. I think I've been spoiled by the depth of stuff like 6 feet. but I watch it for my escapist fix every week. and yes, they most certainly stuffed around with it last summer, but then replayed it all in prime time, including all the episodes they didn't show. I think they realised they were on to a winner and yanked it from low ratings period.
Harv: only if you're good. aheh. I have seem rather frustrated lately haven't I? I'm really enjoying some good rants though - see Bitchalicious ;).
Maine I know! we both adore Scrubs (who wouldn't) and hubby loves the Shield. We were about ready to hurl many, many abusive things (rotten tomatoes and such) but we figured they wouldn't understand anyways :(. We're just waiting for scrubs to come out on DVD. Hmmm. Maybe amazon has a US version...
I missed most of the last two seasons of SATC, but saw the series finale. I thought the ends were tied up too neatly..just my opinion.
You're into Six Feet Under? Heh. We must chat.
Ms Funky: Oh I love six feet under. I love media that pushes the boundaries, whether it be television, cinema, online, print, design...
Hell yes. Scrubs. One of the best shows on TV right now. I freaking love Zach Braff.
