To quote Wikipedia on the police drama “Flashpoint”:
(…) hostage taking, bomb threats and heavily armed criminals. Even though they’re backed with high-tech equipment with an arsenal of explosives, tasers, submachine guns, assault and sniper rifles, the SRU operators use their intuition to voice their judgements to resolve the situation. (…)”
CBS, in lack of balls and spine, has switched the timeslots for “Flashpoint” and “Swingtown”. Means:
SWINGTOWN IS NOW AIRED ON FRIDAYS, 10PM.
Make a note in your calendar.
While I’m not a particular fan of “Swingtown” (no moral qualms, I’m simply not interested), I find it hilarious that the much-quoted vulnerable children and their morally outraged parents can now enjoy hostage taking and bomb threats on Thursday nights rather than the most sexless swinger drama ever, which seems to be fine with the concerned citizens. Heh. Colour me not surprised.
No news yet on the future of “Swingtown”, but we’ll keep you posted. The grapevine says that all episodes in the can will be aired, which makes sense, especially considering a possible deal with ITV and other “foreign” TV stations.
On the plus side: “Moonlight” fanpoodles will now get on the nerves of “Flashpoint” fans rather than on ours. See? Every cloud has a silver lining. Cheers!
