    • I saw Lance Reddick on Intelligence and now this. It saddens me to see the awesomeness of Lance Reddick wasted on these series, but his presence does increase their awesomeness. Get him on Sleepy Hollow!

  • Why is BJ Novak so popular?

    • He was a writer, producer, director, and an actor for several episodes of The Office and The Mindy Project. One of which was one of the most popular sitcoms on Television. Although I don’t think he’s as popular as you think…

    • I never understood that, either. He came into The Office as a producer, along with being in the cast. Just never understood that.

  • Lance Reddick not only was good on Fringe but he was so great on The Wire (one of the best groundbreaking dramas on television).

  • Some of those Amazon pilots seem to have really good potential. Alpha House was really good so hopefully there will be some winners here. I love the idea of being able to help Amazon decide what to pick up.

  • Good that it appears he’ll have a recurring role on ‘The Blacklist’, as I believe ‘Intelligence’ isn’t going to get renewed. Hey, maybe Abrams & Co. can create a role on ‘Sleepy Hollow’ for him? Worked for John Noble.

  • Hmm it appears like your website ate my first comment (it was extremely long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I wrote and say, I’m thoroughly
    enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog writer but I’m
    still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for beginner
    blog writers? I’d certainly appreciate it.
