DURHAM COUNTY on ION


Was it just me or was this one of the creepiest TV shows ever. Those Canadians may seem like a civil bunch, but they really let it fly in this one. Even my husband had to cover his eyes once or twice. Anyone else see it? If you missed it, there are reruns all week on the ION Network, which is on basic cable. Five more shows to follow if you can take it.


Here's "Bella, The Fortune Teller" in the Chick Lit Review.

Yes, it was decidedly odd.

Didn't see it.

Why do I have to sign into my hotmail account to read the review? And why, after I signed in, was I then denied access?

"Hi:

Two things

1) I’d like your permission to (re)print your article on The new adventures of old Christine
for our website

2) I was hoping we could use your ‘scribing’ talent for our website.

The Best Shows Youre Not Watching (dot) com [all one word]

The new adventures of old Christine is one of our featured shows. We’re hoping to round up a few people who can occasionally contribute perspective (via an article/blog) on the shows – maybe a recent episode, future direction, plot shortcomings etc.

What’s in it for you?
Primarily a larger audience back channeled to your blog. We don’t pay but the site has a lot of promise and we're pretty excited about getting it off the ground. Let me know what you think.

Thanks

BSW-I can't remember blogging on THE NEW ADVENTURES OF OLD CHRISTINE although I do watch it. I guess I would be willing to do some writing. Email me more specifics.

Two things.

The comment from (Best Show)Watch seems to be some sort of spam. If you check Dusty Rhoades' blog, you will see he got exactly the same message.

And Yes, I'll have a book Friday.

One thing: ION, or Ion, isn't solely on cable, but also on broadcast, though most people might well be seeing it on cable as most of the network's stations were and perhaps are low-power (this is the network that was born as Pax, or PAX). The Philadelphia/Wilmington station has been one of their full-power stations. (That's why so many of the call-letters still have PX in them somewhere.) The last new weekly dramatic series that they didn't share with NBC (such as MYSTERIOUS WAYS) was TWICE IN A LIFETIME, another Canadian production, in the early Pax days.

I missed it, but was happy to see Ion dig deep and commit to importing something other than the occasional interesting miniseries. I suppose I'll either have to dig up a screener around the office or dig deep myself and replace my recently broken tv. (I've been going through my backlog of dvds on a dedicated dvd player I rec'd as a gift.)

Much as with Kitty's experience, the CHICK LIT REVIEW link wants my Hotmail password.
