      Person of Interest is the only show i watch on CBS. Hopefully this show gets picked up by them. I really like Shawn Ryan’s (The Shield, The Chicago Code) writing skills.

  2. Eric says:

    Ders on Mindy Project? Awesome. I might actually tune in.

    I wonder if Billy’s still the DDOJSIOC?

    Sounds like we might finally get to see a decent amount of Chalky on Boardwalk Empire! After I read this I went up and looked up more stuff about Jeffrey Wright, and found an article that said it learned in an interview that 1924 will be the year of Chalky and he’s going to rise to great prominence. Sweet!! Omar comin’!

  5. Boone says:

    Shawn Ryan + Eddie Murphy and Judge Reinhold + Brandon T. Jackson = AWESOME!!!!!
    Beverly Hills Cop is going to be great :))
