Chasing The Saturdays .. Episode 2

TheSatsCoUk-220113-01

Wait? Wasn’t Episode 1 yesterday? Yes it was, Episode 2 aired last night, Episode 3 isn’t tonight, its on Sunday …

For those who have seen Episode 1 which introduced the girls to the US *spoiler free zone here – promise* Episode 2 aired last night which basically is behind the scenes of the What About Us Music Video shoot and shows an emtional Vanessa who just can’t get in touch with Gary! I won’t go into details as I know a lot of UK fans are waiting for the show to air here in a few weeks, but the DailyMail (for some reason) seems to think that ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ is a news item and gives a little recap.

Remember that ‘Chasing The Saturdays’ can be downloaded NOW from iTunes in the USA (Not Canada tho) remember to leave a 5* rating and leave a great review ūüôā

In other news the Daily Star is reporting that Wayne is set to propose to Frankie


[Updated] Chasing The Saturdays …

Update:¬†Chasing The Saturdays IS available to download legally from iTunes in the USA, as expected, but as of now its only available as a season pass for $25.99 in HD and $16.99 in SD. This is a single price for ALL the episodes in the series. So say if there are 10 episodes you would be paying just $2.70 an episode in HD. Due to the show being able to purchase legally, we will respect the group and as normal we won’t put show or music which are available to buy legally on the site.¬†Episode 1¬†is currently FREE on iTunes. So make sure you grab this whilst it’s free! Obviously rate it high everyone, lots of 5 star ratings ūüôā Leave a top review too ūüôā

Chasing The Saturdays - iTunes USA

As you are all aware Chasing The Saturdays premiered last night on E! in the US/Canada with Episode 2 airing tonight at 10pm.

People wondering if it will be on the site or not, the simple answer to that at this stage is that there is a link to the show (which isn’t working yet) on iTunes in the US and Canada. If the show is available to buy on iTunes then we won’t be putting it on the site. The girls need all the support they can get in America and if its available to buy (Which should be $1.99 in SD and $2.99 in HD) – plus a series link no doubt – then I would rather people bought the show. It might also suggest that it might be on sale in the UK in a couple of weeks too. Again if thats the case I’d rather people bought the show. I know those outside the US/Canada/UK are now screaming at me, but if I put up a link here to ‘What About Us’ and said download it here for FREE, well you all know what would happen. Let’s see what happens today before we make a final decision. Plus at the time of this post publishing I don’t have a copy of the show I can use anyway! If you’ve not seen the show, there is a recap here

The girls UK mouthpiece – The Daily Mail – has talked about the show. They are saying that US¬†critics¬†having given it a mixed¬†response¬†– I’m not going to post the article here as its well typical DM writing, but I wouldn’t worry what the critics have to say, the group aren’t trying to publicise¬†themselves¬†to them!

In must better news Heat are running a competition which flys you to LA to meet the girls (so they are going back then!) the competition doesn’t actually give the dates, so that might be difficult!

 


The day is here!

TheSatsCoUk-200113-02

It’s finally the day we have ALL been waiting for, Chasing The Saturdays premieres TONIGHT – well if you live in the USA or Canada. The show airs at 10pm (9pm Central) on E!, also a sneaky look at iTunes in the US suggest it’s going to be put on there too, so please make sure you buy it as well to support the girls in the USA!

It’s snowing (again) in London, so I thought I’d run through the news items and see if anything is worth posting. Firstly need to mention that our gallery is being updated with all the pictures of the girls from the USA. So make sure you pop over and take a look!

The girls are in YOU! Magazine in the UK Today (It’s a Sunday¬†supplement¬†from the Daily Mail) fortunately it seems if you don’t want to buy it the entire interview has been posted online on the DailyMail website. It’s pretty long so you can click through to read it.¬†I’ve posted some of the pictures below.

Firstly JessieJ has praised ‘glowing’ Rochelle as Jessie, Rochelle and the JLS lads all went to dinner last night!

We have a REVIEW in for Chasing The Saturdays (yes seriously) and the NY Daily News gives it 3/5 calling it “On to the toppermost of the poppermost.”

Sats In The City

Hello from a snowy London, well I believe it’s snowing everywhere, and its very bad in South Wales, so take care!

Yesterday our favourite girls took on the mighty Big Apple – yes New York City – where they performed a sell out concert at the Highline Ballroom – and met fans at the NBC Store, plus also paid MTV a visit cos well why not?

I’ve added a few pictures of the girls performance and NBC signing below for you to view, we will no doubt have them in lovely HQ to view in the gallery soon.

The girls also popped into MTV and spoke about the Destiny Child’s reunion:

And, that notion has U.K. girl group The Saturdays quite hyped. So, how stoked are they for the DC girls to get back together? “I’m so excited. I’ve heard a tiny little clip and I love it. I’m hoping it’s not just for one single, which I heard it is,” Saturdays member Rochelle Humes told MTV News on Wednesday when they stopped by the newsroom ahead of the Sunday premiere of their E! reality show, “Chasing The Saturdays,” on January 20.

Gotta laugh, seems the girls song with Rodney Jerkins will feature the trademark ‘darkchild’ in the song (If you don’t know what I mean listen to Say My Name by Destiny’s Child, or Telephone (nearer the end) by GaGa/Beyonce)

What makes the DC news even more exhilarating is the fact that the ladies of the Saturdays are only one degree of separation away from knowing Queen B, Michelle and Kelly. “And it’s really cool because we actually worked with Rodney Jerkins on a track recently,” Una Healy revealed. “And I always remember in ‘Say My Name’ that Darkchild [shout out]. We actually got him to go in and put it down. He says, ‘I’m not sure if I’ll keep it in or not,’ and we’re like ‘Oh gosh!’ cause I remember growing up listening to that song.”

Today Show – Interview & Performance

Yesterday the girls appeared on NBC’s Today Show to promote theirselves, What About Us and of course Chasing The Saturdays! I’ve not come across any nice HD versions of the interview and performance yet so I’ve embedded the official videos from NBC for the time being, they play for me in the UK so I assume they are viewable everywhere. If they aren’t give me a message on @TheSatsCoUk and I’ll fix that.
