Doctore in True Blood? Guess I can't drop this shit just yet. Dan Stark in P & R? It was already next on my watchlist and the special recommendation just seals the deal. Previously I've only seen the first episode and thought it was a bit so-so, but after that I've heard it gets helluva lot better.

A tv-series of Hannibal? They really think they can find an actor who can come close to what Hopkins already did with that character? Also the fact that it's a network show means there won't be too graphic violence. Not too excited about this one.

Thanks Spydie for the news and also for all the effort you put in hotlinking the actor names. Without those half of the names here wouldn't mean shit to me. And on that note Daniela Bobadilla looks immensily hot, so cannot wait for the new Sheen series. He maybe one crazy asshole, but all is forgiven for giving me Hot Shots and Hot Shots 2.

As of Parks & Rec:

Start watching S02 and just read what happened in S01 on wiki. You'll get in right away. I started watching from 2x23 to 3x16 and there was no problem with learning about the characters and their relashionships.

Re: 19/02/12 - TV News Weekly Review #55 - Ain’t Love Strange

About parks & rec, I'm somewhere in the 3rd season I think. (the one where Louis CK is frequently on).

At first I didn't like it, but after you guys pushed me again onto it - I started watching it from the start and it quickly grew on me.

It's pretty great.

I hope the same will happen with it's always sunny in philadelphia after I'm done with parks ...

Great work Spydie! But what I'd really like to know is.. will Fringe be renewed?  hmm

Re: 19/02/12 - TV News Weekly Review #55 - Ain’t Love Strange

Probably not. They're hemorrhaging money. And we all know broadcast networks hate that.
It's way worse than last year. So I don't have my hopes too high. DVR it's the only thing working for Fringe right now.

Did as you suggested. After reading the wiki, I realized I have watched the whole first season and not just 2 or 3 episodes. Had I known back then that the quality increases so dramatically after S01, I would have continued watching. It's really good, but maybe not as good as the hype makes you believe. Main problem being that the rest of the cast doesn't measure up to Knope and Swanson. But still, well worth my time, so thanks for the suggestion!

Thanks for the advice Orlando. However, being a moron, I don't know whence is said wiki of which you speak. smile  I have started d/ling S02 and would now like to read the wiki about S01.

Care to share or should I just get off my lazy arse and Google?

Namaste,

Edit; Hmmm, Wikipedia huh? Will look. tyvm.
