    Guess I’m going to wait until July 7th when the new season of HGN premieres.

  4. Nick says:

    Good, I’ll have plenty of time to watch X-Files this summer. Though I do want to watch Mr. Robinson

  5. Neki says:

    NBC has better summer schedule than in regular season :P

  6. Eric says:

    Looking forward to both Craig and Jerrod’s new series, as well as the returns of both Hannibal and Welcome to Sweden. Also looking forward to more news on the Heroes: Reborn front.

    Craig Robinson will star in about 3-4 years in an US version of Sherlock and then in a re-imaging of the Hobbit. You heard it here first. (for those who don’t follow British TV- Martin Freeman went from the Office to a show- The Robinsons)
