U.S. Comic Book Characters on TV - Are They Available in the UK?

Post by MajorHoy on Thu Oct 09, 2014 1:06 am

This TV season, we'll have the return of Marvel's Agents of S.H.E.L.D., while on the DC-side this year sees the start of Gotham (pre-Batman); Constantine; and The Flash joining the returning Arrow (Green Arrow).

How many (if any?) of those shows will be available to viewers in the UK or in other parts of the world?

All of them. Gotham started here this Monday. SHIELD is back this month, too. But I'm unclear on what "this TV season" means...do you only get new shows at certain times?

Traditionally here in the US, the fall (usually in September) was when the major networks (ABC, CBS, NBC, and FOX) would premiere new shows and new seasons of returning TV shows. (Probably because people were done taking summer vacations and all the kiddies were back in school, plus since it was getting cooler and darker in the evenings, people may have been more likely to be staying at home at night?) Cable television (like HBO and others) have not gone that route, but the major networks still tend to do that.

Very odd. Over here, a new series tends to start when it starts, so to speak.
