Hello, this is Garrett Godwin, and welcome to Go Now, where yours truly brings the latest on the addictive world that we all know and love so much as the world of entertainment.
The final verdict is in the case of Law & Order
Well, the jury from NBC came back, as the verdict states that there will be more Law & Order for another season of 22 episodes, while Criminal Intent is also coming back next season.
Creator and executive producer Dick Wolf and the NBC Network reached a settlement of a longer agreement between Wolf Films and NBC Universal extended until 2012.
Both the original, which is still the best, and CI, have suffered ratings decline this past season, especially Law & Order, when the acclaimed, award-winning drama moved to Friday nights at 10pm against CBS’ Numbers.
Though struggling in the ratings on Tuesday nights at 9pm against FOX’s House and CBS’ The Unit, Criminal Intent has done very well on cable that first-run episodes will air on the USA Network and repeated on the Peacock Network.
The new season of Criminal Intent will start in the fall, while Law & Order will begin its 18th season on Sunday nights at 8pm next January after football season.
Lifetime strengthens its Ties in Blood
Just as the triangle heats up as the temperature does in spring and summer, it will cool down as Lifetime renews Blood Ties for a 10-episode sophomore season.
Sort of between Buffy, The Vampire Slayer and The X-Files, the show is based on a series of books from author Tanya Huff, centering ex-cop turned private investigator Victoria “Vicki” Nelson (Christina Cox), who has Henry Fitzroy (Kyle Schmid), a vampire to keep her warm, and Mike Celluci (Dylan Neal), a cop to keep her cool, as the trio must work together to investigate supernatural evil. The series’ Sunday 10pm timeslot will be vacated by Army Wives, one-third of Lifetime’s newest shows this summer.
The triangle will continue to heat up when new episodes of Blood Ties will air next fall on Lifetime.
However, if you still want to satisfy your hunger for Blood Ties, then you read the books based on the series from Tanya Huff at your nearest bookstore.
Turbos! Airwolf continues to fly its way onto DVD
It is time to take flight again with Airwolf: Season Three, available on DVD.
The DVD features all 22 episodes as Stringfellow Hawke (Jan-Michael Vincent) pilots the most advanced, elite helicopter on the planet as he takes on missions of national interest on behalf of Archangel (Alex Cord) and the shadowy agency, the F.I.R.M. while still searching for his MIA brother, St. John (“Sinjin”).
