CBS announces "Streets" remake series!

Many of those moving in the somewhat limited Streets fan circles will already know this (especially seeing as I'm around a gazillion years late to this party! Sorry! Been busy.), but for those who don't:
 
CBS have announced plans for a remake series of The Streets of San Francisco. It's better news than a remake movie, I reckon, as those can be so seeped in Hollywood machismo and drowned out so completely by the stars employed that they can be a complete disaster for original fans (eg. Starsky & Hutch, Miami Vice). A TV show at the very least can potentially have some fresh faces in the leading roles, a slowly developing arc and hopefully some of the grit of the original show. The fact that Numb3rs producer Robert Port is one of those writing the pilot script brings me a little hope, but remakes like this are such a hit and miss thing.

Season 2 Volume 2 DVD due November 11th!

I have barely two seconds to blog about this, as I'm just out the door for a trip surfing in Cornwall, but I had to quickly post on here that CBS have announced November 11th as the release date for the second half of the second season. Obviously sales are doing well, which is good news for us and for the chances of getting a third season on DVD!

Video clips added for "Blockade" and "Flags Of Terror"

I finally dumped my old youtube username (I only realised after registering that it made me sound like an iPhone, gah) and seeing as that requires re-registering completely, I took the opportunity to christen my new account with some tsosf video clips! I've posted a scene from Blockade including a shootout and the aftermath between our guys. Plus a scene from Flags Of Terror that I love - Steve in a tough situation and Mike feeling (and looking) concerned and totally helpless.
 

You can watch both clips on the media page. I'll be uploading more soon, and feel free to make requests if there's anything in particular you'd like to see. :)

Extended theme available for download

Another fan requested help getting hold of an extended version of the theme tune, and after sorting that i decided to bung it on the site for others to download too.

 

So you can find a pretty awesome extended theme tune in mp3 format on the media page. It's not the original instrumentation, of course, but it's 2:57 long, and the file is the best quality I could output. It's 2.7MB so might take a few minutes to download. If anyone wants a smaller file, let me know, as i can probably manage that without too much loss of quality (won't know until i try, i don't  think).


Enjoy! :)

Season 2 DVD to be released July 1st

Finally CBS/Paramount announced that Season Two Vol 1 (yes, again with the stupid volumes instead of one whole season set) will be released on July 1st, hooray! No doubt that date might move around a bit, but at least we know we're getting half of season two. The whole 'volumes' thing might indicate that they're still unsure of how sales will go, so let's hope they support the release of the second volume.

 

You can get more info, and a look at the package art (nicely done, again), here at tvshowsondvd.com.

 

WHOOP! :P Must celebrate by doing some more caps this weekend.
