  • You guys say April 20th, IGN says April 6th for Turn, so which is it? I’m on your side though, seeing as you just focus on TV unlike IGN.

    • Also, cannot wait for Mad Men but it’s very annoying how split seasons are a thing now.

  • I’m looking forward to Turn, hopefully if it is good it will still do well, especially since it is up against the premiere of Game of Thrones.

  • I have to wait until April to watch Mad Men? NOT GREAT, BOB!
    I’m never going to get tired of that.
    So basically AMC is determined to get their seven episodes finished out right exactly when the Emmy voting starts. That’s smart. Last year they started the season a couple of weeks too late and Vincent Kartheiser got screwed because of it since his episode aired so far into the voting period. He really should have gotten a nomination.

    • OMG! I thought I was the only one who thought that was amazing and will never forget it. I rewound it so many times and couldn’t stop laughing. Most perfect line ever.
