A run-down of what can be seen when Jones! launches in May

jones-channel-logoThis week Sky released the first batch of highlights for their new channel Jones!.

As we posted earlier this month, the channel celebrates the shows of days gone by so if you’re over a certain age the following line-up will certainly feature a few familiar titles.

The May line-up features crime classics such as the Telly Savalas-starring Kojak, cop drama T.J. Hooker featuring William Shatner, Columbo and gritty British series The Sweeney.

If you’re a fan of classic British comedy then Dad’s Army and It Ain’t Half Hot Mum can be seen every weeknight between 7pm and 8pm starting May 13. The first season of Porridge also appears.

The first season of the critically-acclaimed drama Twin Peaks from director David Lynch will air from Wednesday, May 15. The first season picked up a whopping 14 Emmy nominations.

Jones! also has entries from the superhero genre with Bionic Woman, Wonder Woman featuring Lynda Carter and The Incredible Hulk, which featured the pairing of Bill Bixby and Lou Ferigno.

Trekkies can catch re-runs of the first seasons of The Original Series, The Next Generation and Deep Space Nine in May. Thunderbirds will begin on May 19.

In terms of comedy, Cheers, Happy Days and Mork & Mindy will all screen with their first seasons from May 13.

How I Met Your Mother’s Neil Patrick Harris can be seen as a teen in Doogie Howser, M.D. weekdays from May 13.

Dallas may have been revived with a flashy new series last year but Jones! will have the original from season one.

The original Charlie’s Angels will also air as will The Brady Bunch, MacGyver and Matlock.

    Maybe they can shift all the old comedy off Comedy Central onto this too

  • LOTS of great shows but what about CHiPs? 🙂

  • David Harrison

    Yep and whats the bet they bloody charge for it like they did to Soho.

    • Soho was launched as a premium channel. It was free for a short period to give people a taste. That was well pulicised.

  • I see Lynda Carter is in NZ at the moment, wonder if it’s to do with JONES? 🙂
