kind of way, I'm afraid.
Don't look at it that way. Come here and join us in dissecting each thrilling episode in the days after it airs. Proclaim your wildest theories and let your friends comment, agree, or dis you unmercifully (all in good fun, natch').
While there is undeniably much satisfaction to be gained in rolling through episodes on DVD until you're bleary eyed and exhausted, there is a different kind of enjoyment watching each episode and then waiting excitedly for the next. 'Cause when this show ends in May, there won't be anything else like it, maybe ever (with the uber-cautious approach the networks are taking now). So, have fun with us watching this last season slowly reveal its unique magic, week by week. We're here for you, man!
