Ewan Mcgregor & Pierce Brosnam in the political thriller movie The Ghost Writer looks good!
2.15am On SBS ONE

The Blues Brothers movie is on SBS tonight at 8.35pm, I recall last year it aired on 7mate. I wonder how did SBS score the rights to movies from Hollywood so soon after it aired on commercial free to air networks? Last week it was Purple Rain (previously aired on Nine), and I also recall Priscilla Queen of the Desert airing on SBS Viceland so soon after airing on Nine!

Just watching the doco Hipsters hosted by Samuel Johnson. Why do they censor their shows on SBS on Demand?

kiddies have the internet now. They should be banned :stuck_out_tongue:

:laughing: Sure seems that way. Ridiculous how loud the bleeps are and how they blur the f word when it’s often the point of the story.


###The Good Fight to air exclusively on SBS in August.

From Wednesday, 2 August at 8.30pm

Launching as a double episode on Wednesday, 2 August at 8.30pm, and then continuing Wednesdays at 9.30pm, is SBS’s brand new legal drama series The Good Fight. From the creators of the multi award-winning The Good Wife, Robert and Michelle King, comes the new CBS All Access original series, The Good Fight, which picks up just one year after the events of the final broadcast episode of The Good Wife.

The critically acclaimed series, which was recently renewed for a second season, features some of The Good Wife’s original cast including; Christine Baranski , Cush Jumbo, Sarah Steele, guest star Michael Boatman and special guest star Matthew Perry (Friends), along with new cast members; Rose Leslie, (Game of Thrones), Delroy Lindo (Heist), Erica Tazel (Justified), and Justin Bartha (The Hangover).

The series commences as Diane Lockhart (Christine Baranski) watches President Donald J. Trump being sworn in at his presidential inauguration ceremony. The drama addresses the new era in American politics, as Diane Lockhart and Maia Rindell (Rose Leslie) settle into their new roles alongside Lucca Quinn (Cush Jumbo), in one of Chicago’s leading African American law firms, specialising in representing police brutality cases. Each week, The Good Fight captures stories inspired by real events, covering terrorism, cyber-bullying, censorship, hate speech and fake news.

Creators, Robert and Michelle King serve as showrunners and executive producers of The Good Fight. Phil Alden Robinson co-wrote and executive produced the premiere episode with the Kings. Ridley Scott, David Zucker, Liz Glotzer, Brooke Kennedy and Alison Cross also serve as executive producers. Kennedy directed the premiere episode. The series is produced by CBS Television Studios in association with Scott Free Productions and King Size Productions and is distributed worldwide by CBS Studios International.

The Good Fight premieres as a double episode on Wednesday, 2 August at 8.30pm on SBS, continuing 9.30pm Wednesdays, with episodes available on SBS On Demand after each episode airs.

The Handmaid’s Tale will be shown on FTA after all, after being a big success on SBS on Demand.

Same in Sydney.

Just watched The Good Fight. Loved it, so far it’s on track to be as good as The Good Wife.

They’ve also had prominent signage up for the show at Southern Cross train station in Melbourne for the last few weeks.

I don’t really have an issue with SBS advertising its wares. No point having these shows broadcast to a vacuum where nobody can know they’re on.

It’s not fastracked so the audience will be smaller than normal ?

That’s SBS entire mantra though. They aren’t going to suddenly get lets of new viewers because of one tv show and the people that like SBS already know what it has to offer. Not to mention people can check their dvr tv guide.

Nice to see them wasting money instead of on new shows. They would have been better off playing Uncle Buck again.
