The dawning of the age of 'Aquarius'
If you love the first episode of "Aquarius," the new series featuring David Duchovny as a homicide detective who goes up against Charlie Manson, you won't have to wait a minute to get the rest of the story. Taking a page from Netflix, NBC will make all 13 episodes available the day of the premiere, a first for network TV. "We are fully aware how audiences want to consume multiple episodes of new television series faster and at their own discretion," NBC Entertainment President Bob Greenblatt told the Hollywood Reporter. For more traditional-minded viewers, the series will still unspool weekly throughout the summer. The drama may be about the '60s, but its distribution deal is a nod toward the future. 8 p.m. Thursday, KARE, Ch. 11
