SoHo Too Slow Off the Draw With Justified

SoHo Too Slow Off the Draw With Justified

SoHo’s scheduling of Justified means it won’t catch up with US screenings of the modern-day western until at least a year from now. Season one of Justified will replace The Wire on Tuesdays at 9.30 from June 25, when it and season two, which already have aired in SD on TV One, should have been boxed-set as a […]

SoHo will premiere the penultimate season of Dexter in October. It will go to air here only a couple of weeks after its September 30 launch in the US. Season six was a shocker for all the wrong reasons but it did end on a cliffhanger that fans will be desperate to see resolved. Dexter’s […]

New to Blu: June 20-26
