    I miss the Covert Affairs theme. I hope they include it again this upcoming season.

    Looking forward to Hemlock Grove! HG and Arrested Development are the only Netflix series I like.

  3. Ryan says:

    Hemlock Grove is the only thing that I gave a 1 out of 5 stars in all of my rankings on Netflix…still amazed it’s coming back.

    • alistaircrane says:

      It’s Netflix’s best show, so it’s not surprising at all.

    • guest says:

      I am excited about a second season, I really enjoyed Hemlock Grove because it’s different and not so cookie cutter 2013 TV. I stopped watching most of the tv series because I got bored.

  4. HAP says:

    How in the world did Chrisley get renewed?? He’s particularly disgusting, and the show is unwatchable.

    “USA Network has renewed reality series Chrisley Knows Best for a 12-episode second season.” –> I have not watched this show nor do I plan to but I have no problem in saying this….just WOW USA!! You give some stupid reality show a 12 episode renewal, but can’t even give White Collar a FULL final season. Ugh!

  6. Mark says:

    Is there any news if Anne Dudek will be reprising her role in Covert Affairs this season, to resolve Annie’s death story….
