A Short Note on Broadcasting in Canada and the US for This Season (2) and the Next (3):

The order of the episodes presented here for Season 2 is correct - this is how they were aired on Canadian television. CBS did not air these episodes in this order - we have corrected the airdates as they appear. Also, please note that in the USA the show flip-flopped between the 9PM and 10PM timeslots. This table is crowded already so we didn't have the space to write them in. Those episodes which aired from June until the end of July 2010 (with the exception of "Unconditional Love" which aired on July 16th) broadcast during the 9PM timeslot. All other episodes (including "Unconditional Love" on July 16th) from August onwards are broadcast at 10PM. Canada has also followed this trend since August. In Canada, "reverse simulcast" occurred in July with the show airing at 10PM on CTV following the US broadcast. However, depending on the timezone one lived in Canada, sometimes the show would air at the same time as the CBS broadcast. We're as confused about the timeslots as you are, so if things don't seem right above, heed what this paragraph says as the ultimate authority!

How Flashpoint Fans Outside of Canada Can New Legally Obtain Flashpoint Episodes

In light of fans' anticipation to watch the new episodes before they air on CBS, we have decided to post directions on how fans can obtain the episodes legally on iTunes. This may not work for everyone, so we ask readers to please exercise caution when attempting this.

Before you start, you will need to:

1. Create a new email account - this will be linked to your Canadian iTunes account.

2. Obtain a CANADIAN iTunes gift card in whichever amount you would prefer. Each episode is $1.99, so a $15 gift card would probably suffice for only those new episodes airing during this month. These can be purchased easily online, but please be sure that you are getting a card that is in Canadian dollars. Some places will even send you an activation code within 30 minutes via email. An American iTunes card number will not work on the Canadian store.


1. Open iTunes, and go to the iTunes store. If you are logged in under your current account, make sure you sign out. At the bottom, you will see a link under "Manage iTunes" that says "Change Country". Choose Canada.

2. Click "sign in" at the top, and create a new account using the new email you have created. At the next screen where it asks for billing information, ignore both the credit card as well as the billing address. iTunes will never send you a paper bill, so you don't need to worry about this. In between these two parts, is a field to enter in your Canadian iTunes gift card number. Enter this, and click on next.

3. You are done! Now you can purchase anything (except for apps) on the iTunes Canada store you wish. Search for Flashpoint Season 3, and all the new episodes you are looking for will be there (Caution, look for the episode name since the newer ones are not at the top or the bottom, they are in the same order as listed on this post)

4. To go back to your American iTunes account, sign out of your account, scroll to the bottom of the iTunes store home page, click "Change Country" and choose USA. Sign back in with your regular account.

New Flashpoint Episodes on the Way!

Hey Badgers and Doves! Still really busy behind the scenes, we will catch up on old episode summaries as soon as we possibly can (hopefully, one or two at least by the end of the month). We were surprised to learn around a week ago that there are five new episodes airing in the next month on CTV (but as of this writing, they will not be appearing on CBS at the same time). Here is the upcoming schedule:

January 4 - Episode 305: "Collateral Damage"
January 11 - Episode 307: "Thicker than Blood"
January 18 - Episode 310: "No Promises"
January 25 - Episode 311: "Terror"
February 1 - Episode 312: "I'd Do Anything"

For those of you questioning these episode numbers, these are correct - they were aired out of order for broadcast. We will fix this on our episode ratings table once we get our summaries all finished. And as always, we will update the music cues as soon as we possibly can!
