    Flashpoint - New Police Sniper Unit show on CBS

    Looks to be interesting. Starts July 11th.

    CTV Series Flashpoint Picked Up by CBS for U.S. Broadcast

    -- New CTV drama becomes first Canadian series since Due South to air on network television in both Canada and U.S. --

    -- CBS Paramount Network Television Partners with CTV and Toronto-Based Pink Sky Entertainment and Avamar Entertainment --

    Los Angeles, CA (January 29, 2008) - A new CTV original Canadian drama series currently in pre-production has been picked up by CBS for broadcast later this year in the United States. Flashpoint (working title, a.k.a. Sniper) is a new police drama about an elite, big city Strategic Response Unit (SRU). CBS has picked up 13 episodes of the one-hour drama series, which was green-lit by CTV in December. When it premieres later this year, Flashpoint will become the first Canadian series since CTV's Due South in 1994 to air in network primetime in both Canada and the United States. Production begins in Toronto in April.

    Don't y'all find it strange that CBS airs shows like "The "Unit", "NCIS" and at one time "JAG" but has such a anti-conservative, anti-firearms, anti-Christian political positions? Don't get me wrong I love each of those shows and now look forward to Flashpoint too. I can only assume that money speaks and that viewer popularity have something to do with it. It looks like the networks would sooner or later realize there are many more of us who pay the bills. If it werent for a very few network shows I would only have the Military Channel, Master Blasters, Deadly Catch and the Home Shopping Club (just kidding).

    While I agree and also enjoy all of those shows on CBS, I have also noticed a lot of ANTI-GUN liberalist ideas and views not-so-hidden within the script of each and every one of those same shows.

    Sure, they depict killing and violence, usually with a lot of gunfire on both sides, but there is definitely a message being presented in most of all of these shows.

    Great... now there will be millions more "experts" on SWAT tactics etc., just like CSI created millions of "experts" on crime scenes.

    I can't wait.

    I agree, but, it can be entertaining to watch if you dont take it seriously. I mean, what else is there to watch?? Will and Grace? I only get antenna tv so I am very limited in choice

    I have Dish and it just more replays of the same limited choices -- IMHO.

    Agreed, it might be entertaining, and it might not. The problem I'm pointing out is that a lot of people have a hard time telling the difference between entertainment and education. Just search Law and order, CSI etc. here on this forum.

    What do mean Sixto? I'm already an expert from watching SWAT, Sniper, and the like. Two important tips for you Six:

    1: (from Sniper), when being shot at, just roll quickly as soon as you hear the bang. If you're quick, you won't get shot.
    2: (From SWAT and Speed), it's OK to shoot the hostages, the most you'll get is a butt-chewing.

    I could go on and on, but I don't want the BGs that troll this forum to learn all of the GG secrets. I might watch the show though, if it's not on too late.

    I think all the networks and Hollywood in general is anti-gun.

    rogerswann, you are right I suppose they have learned who watches those type shows, and are kinda caving to where the money is. However as has been said here before we still see the anti-views pop up from time to time.
