    Zak Storm in October? Spotted this in a press release announcing Miraculous on the block:

    Supposed to debut on November 1st on Netflix, so maybe?

    I have a feeling Zak Storm was supposed to premiere on Netflix first. Oh well, at least it'll be on TV before that.

    Is...this a trick question?

    As for me, I personally can't really answer that question; only that there are shows I like, and others I don't like.

    EDIT (7-13-07): Okay, I don't like this. They're played "Stormy Weather" (the episode they were supposed to play on Monday) yesterday, and now they're playing it again. They're supposed to be playing Princess Fragrance today.

    I'm glad Zak Storm is going to air on Netflix as well.
    They realized more people will have a chance of noticing on on the nation's most popular streaming service as a opposed to a programming block that's only available in few locations.
    Isn't this block supposed to have some sort of streaming service as well?

    Okay, everyone. This is getting ridiculous. They're showing part one of Justice Reborn...AGAIN! They're supposed to be showing part three.

    It's official. I now think they may be trying to sabotage their own block. Either that, or they are literally that disorganized, with no teamwork and/or communication (either that, or there have been communication breakdowns), or they literally don't (really) know what they're doing. I mean, it's been two weeks now; two weeks! You do NOT do something like this and think that people won't notice.

    In any event, I think they owe everyone an explanation at this point. However, their Twitter is totally inactive, and their last Facebook was made three days ago asking what everyone's favorite cartoons are, apparently ignoring what's been going on (worst case scenario: they could be pretending as though these problems don't even exist). I'm not kidding. If this keeps up, people will likely stop watching, but if they (the people behind KidsClick) are trying to sabotage their own block, then that would be what they call a "catch-22" problem...

    This is getting ridiculous - at this point I wouldn't be surprised if this thing died out by fall.

    Yeah honestly, this is getting ridiculous. I get the block is new but how do you mess it up this many times?

    If they continue re-running the same 5 episodes again all this week, then this block is just going to die out before we can even see any of the shows slated for Fall.

    It's just sad to see that more than likely one of the final attempts to put actual cartoons on broadcast TV again is falling apart everywhere.

    I'm going to admit this but Sinclair needs to realise that their block has problems and that in order to be salvaged, it should be retooled.

    They could have sorted out if they switched the weekday format to include other shows in rotation, but no, they didn't.

    @ AdrenalineRush1996:

    To be completely honest, I think that what really needs to be done, simply put, is for the people running (and broadcasting) the block to get their acts together (with all due respect to them). That's the only way this is going to work...

    That can also work in order to salvage it.

    Today's episodes:
    RoboCop #6: Cyber-Fagin
    Max Steel #6: Animal Attraction
    Angry Birds # Uh, I don't know how these are packaged: Chuck Time/Where's My Crown/Full Metal Chuck/Another Birthday/Egg Sounds/A Fork in the Friendship/Trampoline/Roughnecks
    Miraculous #3 The Pharaoh
    Rocket Monkeys #6 Three Wild & Crazy Monkeys / OK Baby Yay
    Super 4 #42 Negatives

    I think Miraculous is airing in the same order it did on Nickelodeon. No idea what's going on with Super 4, lol.

    Also saw the first non-Chuck E. Cheese commercials. Something called "KaDunks" debuted at the end of RoboCop, FlipAzoo/Zuru Bunch o Balloons during Angry Birds.

    The Angry Birds shorts are listed as "compilations". I saw the one for today listed as "compilation 6".

    They aired episode 8 (season 2) of Max Steel today. I guess they're going to pretend yesterday was the correct one lol.

    Also noticed a few different commercials.

    This reminds me of back in the day when episodes of cartoons were aired at random where I live.

    Glad those days are over :D

    For a block like this it is unfortunate that it is making a big mistake of repeating episodes, hopefully it does something about it, as it surely has a lot of potential.
