A cartoon with a girl playing the flute, another clarinet and a boy in the middle with a bassoon

Keep your ears peeled for some famous voices like John Malkovich, Gillian Jacobs and Jennifer Coolidge.

Not only is Scrubs (which the second season is on March 4) on Viceland, it’s (still) also on Disney+, and the seasons of the show are on DVD as well.

Quite normal for a show to be on a TV broadcaster and a Streaming service at the same time? And DVDs as well? :open_mouth: :joy:

I just noticed that Viceland has been airing four episodes of The Movie Show (with David and Margaret), every morning. Weekdays 10am-12pm. It was in the guides all of last week, this week and next week. Am not sure how long this has been airing in that slot though.

Obviously there for a filler. But would be nice to see the odd episode airing in primetime, even if its there to fill in a random gap.

Been there for some time now, they’re also on SBS On Demand. However not all seasons, I think at random, usually after whatever is broadcast. At last check they were showing eps from late 90s/early 2000s.

Senses of Cinema

Wednesday 27 March 9:30 pm

Senses Of Cinema, by John Hughes and Tom Zubrycki, charts the cultural life of late 20th century Australia through the rise, fall, and afterlife of the Filmmaker’s Co-operatives – the passionate individuals who moved through them, and the powerfully independent films they made.

Many of Australia’s most celebrated independent filmmakers began their creative lives in the Filmmakers Co-ops. Dedicated, energetic and young, filmmakers like Jan Chapman, Gillian Armstrong, and Phillip Noyce, fondly acknowledge the formative influence that was the Sydney Filmmaker’s Co-op. By the early 80s, conflicts between the community-based cooperatives and the managerial style of centralised government bureaucracy, challenged the Co-ops’ viability, and led to their ultimate demise. The Co-ops’ stories and films are vibrant, surprising, and essential to Australian cultural history. It’s time to tell their tale.

Faithless

Egyptian-Irish Sam must raise his three daughters with some support from his Egyptian father and Irish mother-in-law, and his narcissistic half-brother. The girls struggle to cope with their loss: Layla turns to Islam, Nancy finds comfort with her family, whilst Lina struggles the most. Hard for Sam to help when she can’t stand him.

Travel Man - Season 12

From Tuesday 23 April 8:30 pm

Travel Man is back for a quartet of minibreaks starting in Trieste, where Alan Davies accompanies Joe Lycett for 48 hours in northern Italy. They soak up the history of this former major seaport of the Austro-Hungarian Empire from the moment they check in to their heritage hotel, housed in a former insurance company.

Since 1 January until yesterday, Jeopardy has been airing new episodes of the show, and as double episodes. And it seems like we were nearing to being up to date at the US airings. And perhaps reverting back to single episodes nightly.

But looking at online guides and on print, the show is going back to repeat mode on Monday, and with Alex Trebek episodes.

Am hoping it’s a mistake, and it is getting new episodes. The recent bunch of episodes were “Invitational Tournament”, where past contestants return to earn a spot in the Masters Series.

Am not sure if SBS has ever aired the Masters Series (the smartest of the lot).

Yes it’s disappointing that they’ve gone back to repeats despite it being the legend that is Alex.

Unfortunately looks like we caught up to the US. Who knows what happens next. Are they stockpiling the episodes so they can resume double eps in a few months time.

Also I don’t think we get the prime time specials that air on ABC in the US. It’s a shame as they are epic episodes with all the great players.

The Specials: A Message To You

Monday 20 May 9:25 PM

The Specials emerged in the late 1970s during a time of great social, political, and economic upheaval in England. These deep subjects heavily influenced their music right up to the present day. The band’s songs ‘Ghost Town’, ‘Gangsters’, and ‘Too Much Too Young’ bravely tackled issues of racism, unemployment, and social inequality, unafraid to reflect England’s shadow back onto itself.

With the passing of Terry Hall this film reflects on The Specials’ cultural impact. They were not just a musical phenomenon, but a cultural one that influenced fashion, style, popular culture, trends and even the mood of the entire nation. This film explores how their legacy lives on in contemporary culture and how their influence can still be seen in modern art, fashion, and media. Their messages are universal. They soundtrack moments in history.

Deadline is told that Channel 4 has been sitting on the current series since it was delivered last year and there are no plans to record a new series this year.

“We have already shot episodes which are ready to air,” said a spokeswoman. “To keep the show current we will shoot further episodes nearer transmission.”

Channel 4 wasn’t able to say when the new episodes will be shot.

Deadline understands that talent availability plays a factor in filming and Cats Does Countdown has always been ordered ad hoc but sources tell us they feel the delay is a reflection of Channel 4’s continued grapple with the ongoing slowdown and attempts to further spread out its shows across the schedule.
