According to the PBS website, since 2003 there's been 110 episodes!

 :o  They haven't shown them around here, at least not that I'm aware of.

I remember seeing one of the Detectives also as one of the experts on Antiques Roadshow.

I don't think I've heard mention on the forum anywhere of this:



NetFlix has brought us another go around of Tales of the City. I've heard some decent things about it and also some quibbles. I know that Laura Linney and Olympia Dukakis are still involved in it. As you can tell from the photo, it's been on NetFlix a few weeks.  It is ten episodes.

I'm going to watch it at some point this Summer, Lyle. Seems interesting anyway!  ;D

Fox has been rerunning episodes of 9-1-1 on Tuesdays but not in original broadcast order.

Blood & Treasure had a quieter episode last night, for that show, and a lot of it was downright hilarious.

Looks like Fox is maybe done with the reruns. A friend told me he saw Season 1 on DVD at Walmart, but I haven't had time to check that out. Of course, Season 1 doesn't have Ryan Guzman. ...  ::)

I cannot for the life of me understand why this show didn't grab me, but it didn't.  :">

I started watching it yesterday, but I started with the old episodes, which was a surprise, I had never heard of this show! I thought it was a recent show and was amazed by how good they got the 80s look! So far I am liking it.

Season 1 of 9-1-1 is available on DVD. I ordered it last evening.

I wonder how long it will take before Season 2 is available? I wish I could get some kind of notification somehow.

Right now I'm accumulating sets of TV series faster than I can possibly watch them. I haven't yet finished the bootleg set of Houston Knights that I bought last month.

Then again, I have some series in the library that I've had for I-can't-say-how-long that are still sealed. I don't want to speculate how long ago I bought Season 1 of Bewitched! and Season 1 of Remington Steele, and I've never even opened them.

:laugh:  I put a similar post on my FB page.  I saw that commercial on July 9th.  Apparently, Balsam Hill is having a "Christmas in July" sale.

Why, so it appears. It also appears it's "Hen Begins," not an episode I'm in a hurry to see again.

I'd like to see the two earthquake episodes (I missed the first one), but maybe rerunning them right now would be a little insensitive.

Actually, it's not such a bad episode. It gives Aisha Hinds a chance to be in the spotlight. It shows how her character and "Chimney" became friends. My only real complaint: No Buck and Eddie. ...  ::)

When we had the big earthquake in 1994, a psychologist talked about the fact that in situations like an earthquake where people have no control over it that many people were actually renting and buying the movie earthquake to watch and that provided a sense of coping and well being doing it. Or something like that. When our video store was open a reporter from the Wall Street journal called our store and asked what the customers were renting and specifically asked about Earthquake. I still have the little article from the front page of that WSJ!

You said you missed the first earthquake episode. The first night of the season they showed two earthquake episodes back to back:

1: Under Pressure
2: 7.1

The the following week a third earthquake episode:
3: Help is Not Coming

Do you mean you just saw the third episode?

The first episode was really leading up to the quake, but you would have remembered part of the plotline:
"Handsome new hire Eddie jeopardizes Buck's chances of being chosen for a fireman calendar."
