  1. When’s Veep coming back?

    • Jrs says:

      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

  2. Jan says:

    come on TV Line , we need some COMMUNITY scoop . So what if the writers have only been at work on Season 4 for only a week . No excuses :)

  3. Linderella says:

    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!

    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.

  8. Velvet says:

    Adam Baldwin on one of my fave shows is awesome! Adam Baldwin and Christian Kane are making me very excited. I am dying for the new season of Leverage to start.

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

    • MIchael says:

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

    • Ash says:

      Adam Baldwin is an awesome actor. The talent that man has is wonderful, not to mention his own emotion that he brings to a role.vsome notable roles of the things I listed before
      Lindermen the bodyguard
      Jayne Cobb firefly
      John Casey chuck
      Animal mother full metal jacket

  10. Ellyn says:

    Don’t forget Adam Baldwin has a big screen connection to Timothy Hutton–Ordinary People.

  11. Ali says:

    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.)
