Drugs, Inc. New Episodes, Again?

Postby elprice7345 » Wed May 15, 2019 1:12 pm

I originally posted this question in this forum: https://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=55&t=55624

I'm not sure where to post my question?

I didn't ask anything about translations, so I'm not sure why the post was moved to completed translation requests with no explanation. :?

I have now recorded 2 new episodes of "Drugs, Inc." with a 3rd to be aired 2019/05/15.

Episode info:
  • Title - Cocaine Crisis
  • recorded 2019/05/01
  • Copyright date 2019
  • Description: "Cocaine is claiming thousands of lives in the U.S. each year."
  • Title - Meth Madness
  • recorded 2019/05/08
  • Copyright date 2019
  • Description: "Meth claims thousands of lives each year in the U.S. Included: Why it's so deadly and addictive."
  • Title - Opioid Epidemic
  • recorded 2019/05/15
  • Description: "Heroin is deadly addictive, but new drugs like krokodil and fentanyl may be even worse."

I emailed NatGeo, but I don't expect an answer.

I can't even find "Drugs, Inc." on the list of shows on their web site.

Can anyone shed some light on what's going on?

Should these shows be added to a season 9? Should they be added to the specials season?

Have you tried searching the NatGeo site? Also check out our list of trusted sources (viewtopic.php?f=7&t=9271).

As mentioned in my OP the Natgeo web site doesn’t even list Drugs, Inc. as a show.

TVGuide lists 2 of the episodes: https://www.tvguide.com/tvshows/drugs-i ... es/305452/
• S09E01 - Meth Madness
• S09E03 - Opioid Epidemic
• No info for Cocaine Crisis

TV.com: http://www.tv.com/shows/drugs-inc/episodes/
• S09E01 - Meth Madness
• No other info

IMDB has no info.

In the absence of much information, I would like to propose:
• Add “Cocaine Crisis” as a special
• Create season 9 and add episodes:
* S09E01 - Meth Madness
* S09E02 - Opioid Epidemic

An alternative would be to add all 3 episodes as specials.

Thoughts?

We don't even have a season 8 to add a season 9. I suggest adding these episodes as special. But I need you to bring image and synopsis to create. What do you think?

Sorry, sloppy cut & paste. :oops:

I meant to suggest creating season 8 vs. 9

I’m OK with either approach.

The episode info is in my OP.

Screen grabs are attached.

Do you need anything else?

Thanks for your help!

We will not open new seasons, it has already been decided that there is not enough evidence that they exist. I reinforce my suggestion to add the new episodes as special. By the way, the prints you brought do not serve to illustrate the episodes. The most correct is to show a scene (as long as it does not spoiler).

I’m fine with adding them as specials and not creating a new season, but the series is locked, so an admin will have to add the episodes.

Here are 3 more images:

Meth Madness:

Opioid Epidemic:
