a jimmy & joanie mix

mix here @ colournoise

a/n: i had such a soft spot for joanie while watching the black donnellys, so i just had to make a mix for these two. it mostly has a sort of, hm, inconsequential and light sound to it and lyrics that are a bit darker if you read into them - which seems rather fitting for the combination of these two characters. enjoy!

a Donnelly brothers mix.

never get away, i am never gonna get away from this place

a/n: the black donnellys mix since i marathoned the series over the past few days, and absolutely adored it (and was enraged at the cliffhanger ending :|) the donnelly brothers endeared me to them within the first episode, and when i heard a few of these songs - liza forever minelli, and soldier (such a jimmy song) i just had to make a mix. if you pay attention to the lyrics of people as places as people, it's the spoiler-y, and perhaps a few others, so, i would say warnings for spoilers for the entire series!

Black Donnellys airing in Australia

I don't know if this is old news or what, but I recently went to Showtime's website to see when Brotherhood is supposed to air (read it's supposed to be in the vein of TBD...sort of?) and I gasped when I saw a picture of Jimmy, Kevin, and Tommy on the front page underneath 'Coming Soon'.

I was under the impression that Channel 7 was supposed to be airing TBD (and was getting quite annoyed when it never showed - they've had it since Dec 2006!) but YAY Foxtel!

Anyway, the whole point of this post:

The Black Donnellys will air on SHOWCASE Thursday 15th May 8:30PM

(plus multiple screenings throughout the week in case you miss it)

Yesterday saw the announcement from NBC-Universal for The Black Donnellys - The Complete Series. The 3-DVD set comes out on Sept. 4th, for $49.98 SRP. Besides having every episode, including 7 that never aired on NBC, we have confirmed that "God is a Comedian" will indeed appear on the set, with Deleted Scenes. We've got the box art for you, plus a couple of menu shots:

The box art isn't spectacular, but it's nice.

DVD Update!

I just got this in my e-mail, and I knew you guys would be interested.

Meet the Donnelly brothers: Tommy, Jimmy, Kevin and Sean. There is nothing these four Irish brothers wouldn't do to protect each other, and for them that means lying, cheating, stealing and, occasionally, calling the cops. Narrated by wannabe gangster Joey "Ice Cream," this gritty series bears witness to the Donnelly brothers' sudden involvement in organized crime, focusing on how they go from boys to mobsters, and showing how their new life affects their relationships with friends, family and lovers.

Academy Award winners Paul Haggis and Bobby Moresco ("Crash") are the creators of this gritty new crime drama series loosely based on Moresco's background. The ensemble cast includes Jonathan Tucker ("Texas Chainsaw Massacre"), Billy Lush ("Huff"), Thomas Guiry ("Mystic River"), Michael Stahl-David ("Uncle Nino"), Keith Nobbs ("25th Hour"), Olivia Wilde ("The O.C.") and Kirk Acevedo ("Oz"). Haggis, who directed the pilot, and Moresco are the creators, executive producers and co-writers.

NBC's short-lived series is coming to DVD this Fall. The Black Donnellys - The Complete Series hit the streets on Sept. 4th. The 3-disc package sells for $49.98 SRP. Video is Anamorphic Widescreen (1.78:1), and audio is English Dolby Digital 5.1, with English subtitles. Running time is 9 hours 19 minutes. There will be Deleted Scenes on the first disc in the package. There will be at least 12 episodes, including the pilot, and we expect that the web-only episode "God Is a Comedian" will probably also be included. We'll try to find out for sure. Stay tuned for that, and for box art!

The link is here if you want to see it yourself. Kids, we're getting a DVD!


I'm working on a couple of Black Donnelly LoveBars and I've run into a problem trying to find caps of the wee!donnellys (or younger versions). I've got good pics of young Jimmy & Tommy from the pilot but could anyone help out with Kevin, Sean & all four of them together? I just need one of little Sean now!

I looked through the memories but I don't want to download all the caps of all the episodes just for three pics. So if anyone has easy access to them or already has them saved, could you please help me out? Thank you!

I was wondering if any music savvy people at there would be able to help me out with a couple of songs. I've gone to the heardontv website and while the first episodes have lots of entries, I haven't really found any for the last couple of eps.

So if anyone knows where I can download these songs, it would be much appreciated.

Notice for TBD writers

We now have a section on fanfiction.net just for The Black Donnellys.

If you have been posting your stuff in the Misc. TV Shows section, you can now move it to 'Black Donnellys'. The section is not listed with the others on the main TV Shows list, but it will be soon.


A group at The Firecracker Lounge is trying to organize a movement similar to the one that brought back Jericho. It appears that they will be focusing on HBO as a potential channel to pick up TBD. Please visit http://thefirecrackerlounge.com and the website they have created at http://www.savetheblackdonnellys.net for more info!


From the girls who run the Donnellys myspace page:

Just giving everyone the heads up. We heard from Jamie Bonelli and James Badge Dale (Samson) that there will be a DVD set some time this summer.

Yay! It'll be nice to get all those special features together. And I don't know about you, but watching tv on the computer is just not the same as having it on my actual television!
