Previous CBS remake update incorrect

Apologies guys, I was given incorrect information as the basis for that last blog post. I've deleted the blog I made on March 4th entitled 'Remake dropped by CBS, picked up by ABC-TV' because I don't want people searching on Google finding the post on its own and thinking it is still relevant. The original source for the news revealed recently that it turned out not to be true. Sorry about that. Seems CBS still have the rights to the remake and are looking at sometime in 2010 to get things rolling. I'll keep you updated as and when I hear things, and I'll try and keep things accurate!

Filming locations page and info added

I'm so grateful for all the fans of this show - not only do I get a lot of pleasure from knowing the site is enjoyed, but i also get the occassional motivational nudge to get something done on the site! A French fan contacted me looking for information on filming locations for the show, and I got in touch with Greg Dewar at www.njudahchronicles.com, a resident of San Francisco who was able to locate Steve Keller's house now in SF based on just a few screencaps I provided (I am still surprised!).
 
Some internet seaches found Mike Stone's house too, so I've added a page for filming locations, along with screencaps of the houses then and now. Hopefully I'll be able to build on it in the future. Click on Locations to the left or click here to check it out.      

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. :)
