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.« I'm finished

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.

it's that time again
ahhh! mikey gave me fair warning, but I read this entry anyway.
And what am I talking about? Survivor, of course. It starts Tuesday night for us Aussies. So we'll officially be 5 days behind devotees in the US.
*note to self: tread carefully 'round mikey's for the next few months* (even though he's always very diligent with his extended entries. I just suffer from an extreme lack of willpower)
Although I gotta say... am I the only one who's a little Survivor-ed out? This will technically be the third series in 12 months after all. Better watch out there Mark Burnett. All this Surviving and Firing. The reality gravy train's gonna pull into the terminus sometime very soon, Marky, especially if The Donald keeps on using The Apprentice as one big pimpage-vehicle for his Trumpire. And then where will you be, hmmm? Up some some 'desert' island's creek with out a paddle? ...with your own helicopter waiting to rescue you?

I'll probably watch Survivor for as long as they make it, unless they do something drastically wrong in one of the series. I doubt they will - they've found a formula that's worked for them so far, so I'll guess they'll stick to it! Yay Survivor! Can't wait till Tuesday :)
PS Note my new blog address!
This will be my first survivor actually. I am always saying that I am going to watch it each season but I never do. I forced myself last Thurs so I am hoping to stick with it.
I've been Surviver-ed out since the damn thing started. I'm hoping that people will get ahold of themselves soon and just people watch if they want reality TV. Don't take over my television to watch people do stupid things. Please, just go to the mall.
yeah I'm getting pretty tired of it myself.
"reality" shows are only as interesting as the people they pick... and it seems like they're picking out of a formula, because everybody on there is pretty damned boring so far. a few nice racks, but that's really it. i'll probably watch one more episode to see if there'll be anyone worth rooting for.
or, to see if Eliza's top falls off.
mikey: ...a good a reason as any to keep watching, I agree. Recall Heidi and Jenna for example. They took it all off for only peanut butter and chocolate... who knows what will cause Eliza's top to travel south?
