TEN gets CLONE WARS
Seems Australia’s CHANNEL TEN has picked up the CLONE WARS animated series and will start screening it in November.
I’m a little disturbed by this. Especially given the way TEN has butchered screening schedules in the past, particularly with their Summer line up, of which CLONE WARS will be a part. I’m still bitter over the utter contempt they displayed towards their SMALLVILLE audience last year when they axed series 6 seven episodes in then recommenced the series 6 months later showing episodes out of sequence. The bastards.
Ah well…we can only hope they don’t screw this up. But then, how much faith can you place in a network that relies on shows such as ‘Big Brother’, ‘Biggest Loser’ and ‘Idol’ to keep them afloat? Not much, I reckon.
At the very least we can be assured of seeing CW on Australian TV. I would have much preferred for Fox 8 or Cartoon Network to have picked it up, but I suspect they wouldn’t have had the required dough to do the deal.
All of us here at the Citadel are looking forward to how this series will play out. Should be a lotta fun!
