    • Love, love, love Veep! Great writing, brilliant cast, frigging hilarious and extremely smart. It took a few episodes for it to come together for me, but by 3rd eppy, I was completely hooked. Can’t wait for season two

  • My guess Falling Skies had massive amounts of DVR downloads because of the finale of The Killing. Surely it will be riding high next week. I watched both shows and enjoyed both immensely. Falling Skies is a definite winner and not to be missed!

    • In my case, somewhat correct. I DVR’ed at 9, watched True Blood, then started the 2 hour block at 10

  • Reason #845 why Leverage is such an awesome show! Now if they could have the actress who played Lila on Angel or anyone from Firefly or Buffy (besides Jonathan) pop up on Leverage. It would be awesome.

    • They did already have Emma Caulfield on an episode, and of course the guy who ends up on EVERY show I love, Mark Sheppard! Armin Shimerman also had a brief role.

      • I totally forgot that Emma Caulfield had guest starred! And yes Mark Sheppard is just constant awesomeness.

  • Once again, Adam Baldwin gets a job because of who he knows – Dean Devlin – not because he has any talent.

    • I think that he’s a pretty decent actor. He’s just a gigantic douche in real life.

  • Great news about Adam Baldwin guesting on Leverage. I love the characters he plays. He steals the scenes he’s in and always delivers the perfect mix of comedic charm, wit smarminess and braun. He really deserves his own show (and so do all of his fans.)
