Us and Them (gavin and Stacey USA)
- the first looks like a straight up rip with some obvious changes. The guy playing smithy's character looks like such a bad fit but maybe it'll work. I imagine they'll have used up all of thebritish storyline by the end of the first season.

Shawn saves the world - looks like the character jack from will and grace but less in your face. But looked like it could be funny.

Almost Human - Karl Urban being awesome in what looks like Alien Nation but with robots. Trailer looked great and will nicely fill the void left by Fringe.


Just watched that. Eugh. What did they do to Brynn? All the characters looked awful and over-the-top.

Hannibal is the best thing I watch at present. So it will probably get cancelled. :|

Us and Them doesn't actually look terrible.

Plus I like the actor that's playing Bryn's character.

just seen the trailer for 2 new shows coming later and next year

Legend with Sean Bean playing a deep cover agent who doesn't know he's undercover, but has all the skills, looks very Bourne but very good

Sleepy Hollow, Icabod Crane awakens 200 years after killing the general who becomes the headless horseman, looks very Michael Myers and Grimm in tone

Just watched the series finale of The Office.
Fitting end to a great show.

It's particularly struck a chord with me because it's the end of seeing people I've spent years watching grow and develop relationships on a regular basis, and that's exactly what I'm doing in real life on Sunday when I leave my job.

^ Very good episode, but the first ten minutes or so felt really out of place and I'm not sure why.

Still, fantastic show, and I only started watching it agian after I'd heard it would be ending soon.

I thought Breaking Bad was beginning of July! it's been a long time since the first half of Season 5 i haven't really been looking for any news in the past months.
