Motive on ABC uses original Canadian air dates

Motive begins on May 20th and is now in the guide, but it's using the original Canadian OAD's so you'll need to set your SP or ARWL to record repeats

Is this show worth the bother? I do that for Merlin, but really wish I hadn't, because it sucks this year.

I'm sorry that you find it such a bother to set up a SP or to change a SP setting. Perhaps you could convince 'the powers that be' to limit the SP Alerts forum to only programs that are worth it.

You made the mistake of asking a question to a grump.

Motive is in my season pass but I still have none recording. Is it on Thursdays? I do not see it in any search for Portland, OR listings.

It's probably preempted for the NBA finals airing on ABC. The same is true for Rookie Blue which doesn't come back until I think June 26.

OK, so far it is not even on my To Do list. I guess I will have to just see what happens.

Three episodes have aired so far, the last being May 30. It will be back on either the 20th or 27th, depending how long the playoffs go.

According to their Wikipedia page, it will start again on June 27.

Well, I have missed them all so far. I will see if my to do list gets it. I do have first run only selected.

Either you failed to read the first post in this thread (and the thread title) or you did not understand it. An FRO SP will not pick up episodes of this series, which is why the thread was created in the first place.

I saw it, but thought it was fixed by now and was surprised that I still had no new shows in my to do list. I do not suppose that changing it to include reruns at this stage will help.

Then as I indicated with the second option, you didn't understand it. What did you think would be "fixed"? The Original Air Date(OAD) is just that, the Original Air Date, not the Original U.S. Air Date. You should have taken the suggestion in the initial post to heart and modified your SP accordingly, rather than ignoring it and thinking that the "problem" would be "fixed".

And Motive may not be showing up yet as it is not showing again until after the NBA finals

Thanks all, but it is only tv and I guess I have missed at least 3 shows already. Is this show worth getting? ie: change to get reruns?

Also, the reason I did not modify my SP was that I already missed the first 3 shows and thought that the "NEW" ABC sched would have all of this fixed.

ABC has only shown 3 episodes. They appear to be available on Hulu Plus and Amazon. It won't be on again until at least the 20th of June. If the NBA finals goes 7 games, it won't return until the 27th.

If you want your TiVo to record subsequent episodes, CHANGE YOUR SEASON PASS! An FRO SP will never record any of the first season episodes since they have already been shown in Canada. If the ratings are good enough, maybe ABC will decide to air the second season episodes soon enough after they air in Canada so that they qualify as new to the scheduler, but that is not until next year.

OK, I will change the SP. Does it matter if we missed the first 3 shows? I mean do we need anything from them so we understand the next shows?

Probably not, but I've only seen the first episode.

So, this makes me think the show was not that good.

Don't take that as an indicator of its quality. I am just way behind in my viewing. As a matter of fact, the only reason I've seen even the first episode is that I made a special effort to do so. It was OK. Worth checking out and making your own decision. You could acquire the 3* episodes by, uh, "magical" means, if you want to see them before the series starts showing on ABC again.


*Actually, you could acquire the entire first season if you wanted.

OK, DEL "it is only tv"

We do not watch T&V on a computer so not sure how to get the previous shows with my XL4.

Can't really discuss how to get them to your computer. Getting them from the computer to the TiVo can be discussed. Or you could always use your free week of Hulu Plus, but the TiVo servers are down so even that is not possible at the moment.

I would not be surprised if the 3 eps aren't being repeated on TV.

Yes, I just looked and mine did too. I did modify the SP, so do not know if it would have found it if I kept it as First Run Only.
