Hi God… i mean Pooch:D

When's NYPD Blue back?

And Im looking for a show called Brotherhood starring Jason Issacs, its had good reviews in the states and sounds pretty good.


Brotherhood, a Showtime original series, follows the lives of two brothers in the Providence, Rhode Island Irish-American neighborhood known as “The Hill”. The blue-collar neighborhood has roots in old-world ways of street justice and shady dealings. Tommy Caffee (Jason Clarke) is a family man and local politician who is out to protect the community and its best interests. His world is turned around when his gangster brother Mike (Jason Isaacs) returns to “The Hill” to regain control of the seedy underworld.

Sounds great to me. Any idea when this might show over here?

It does indeed. According to digiguide it is repeated on 10th, 11th, 12th and 13th at the same time, and on FX2 on a two hour delay, so no excuse for missing it!

Time: 23:00 to 00:05 (1 hour and 5 minutes long)

Notorious east coast gangster Michael Caffee, long thought dead, returns home to stake his claim in the Providence underworld, a move that threatens to undermine his brother's credibility in the state parliament. Season 1, episode 1.

Hi Folks,

NYPD Blue returns to More4 in mid-October, the 12th I think. More details, as soon as I get them. :)

Hi Idoexist,

Copied the following, from a post I made back in mid-July 2006, for you. ;)

Five's new spin-off satellite TV channel "Five US" will launch later this year, probably in September or October! The bonus good news, is that not only will Five be able to show older US dramas from their own catalogue of material (e.g. Law And Order, CSI, The Shield, et al), but they will also air new episodes of these shows a month or two prior to them being given their terrestrial premiere on Five. On top of this, Five have also garnered the rights to air all three of the current "CSI" shows, plus all previous episodes, on the new channel!

Thanks to Digital Spy, for the following Sky channel information. All of the following are due to start broadcasting via Sky, in the next 6 months:

Five US (See TV News above!)
Five Life (Daytime channel, with female-friendly output, e.g. like LivingTV)
Horse And Country TV (I kid you not!)
Milton Keynes TV (Seriously, this channel isn't an April Fools Day joke either!)
