    I like the sound of the White Collar episode. The show isn’t coming back fast enough.

  2. RP says:

    White Collar is flat-out fantastic. Perfect fun without being “zany”, and all the main characters are lovable. Forget the guest stars, I can’t wait to meet Diana’s girlfriend and see more of Alex!

  3. Bob says:

    So is Maya going to have the baby before shooting begins?
