Just a day after TEN sent out preview disks for its premiere of Three Rivers it has switched the episode it will launch the series with.
Now instead of starting with “Place of Life” (Ep1) it will air “Ryan’s First Day” (Ep2) tonight.
The medical drama, starring Alex O’Loughlin, re-shot and re-cast the first episode.
Meanwhile Ep2 is also said to be an improvement on Ep1, which could be behind TEN’s belated move.
Either way it may be a hollow move given the show premiered fourth in its timeslot in the US.
Ep1, reviewed here, will now air next week, which will be very bizarre for one of the patients who came into the (new) pilot seeking a heart transplant…
Updated: Sounding more and more like a fumble in the US with suggestions Ep 2 introduced ‘Ryan Abbott’s’ character better than the re-shot Ep 1…..
A TEN Spokesperson said: TEN received permission to change the order in which the episodes appeared in the States as the story wasn’t sequential. It didn’t make sense.
