Well, for oldcband, the wait is over.

I have a lot of respect for Andy Greenwald of Grantland. Love his quote: "The best show on TV, full stop..."

I guess great minds must indeed think alike! Or, in this case, one great mind and one mostly functional brain.

I was totally shocked! I guess they don't care if anybody is watching it. Like I've said before its not a bad show just an average show. I don't know how there going to get the SOA and Justified numbers back.

These are just my opinions.

Sometimes I just have to see it through when you start from the start of season one and waited for something that would get my interest but never happened. I'm bored.
While I'm thinking about it, here's your dinner...

Excellent news.

What I like most about The Americans is that it's smartly grounded. FX's The Bridge could have been a masterpiece if it wasn't for a number of head-scratching decisions in its creative direction, and a lot of other shows veer much too far into kill happy territory to satisfy people who always demand action.

I don't think Landgraf has ever backed out of a statement regarding the future of a show on FX. If a show is ending he will give creators fair warning. So I expect season five too.

On the flipside he also envisions up to five seasons for The Strain and at this point I'm not sure that show is worth the support. At least from a quality angle.

Yeah, that is one of the most bizarrely written shows. The human interaction is odder than its vampire premise. It will be interesting to see how season 2 turns out.
