  1. Wasn’t Pope universally hated?

    My Last Days seems too depressing for me. Not your typical CW series either.

  3. wrstlgirl says:

    Since people had such a hard time with the fictional show Red Band Society I can’t imagine they’d enjoy watching the real thing in My Last Days.

    Mr. Robot is getting an after show? That’s something.

        Matt, it’s a little confusing how the USA Network has the episodes named and numbered. On season premiere night, there aren’t two back-to-back episodes (per my Cox cable on-screen guide.) It’s one episode numbered “201” – 1 1/2 hours long. This episode seems to contain TWO episodes: “” and “”. Again, it’s ONE episode, 90 minutes in length, and immediately followed by the Mr. Robot aftershow. BTW the following weeks’s episode is “202.” :)

          From the press release “will kick off its second season on Wednesday, July 13 at 10/9c with a premiere night event that includes two back-to-back episodes — presented with limited commercial breaks”.

    Happy Colin will be back on TV. He was great on Falling Skies.

  6. msstargate says:

    Great news for Colin! Such a great actor. Love him in Stargate but he really hit it out of the park as Pope. Hated what they did to the character at the end though. Will try this new just for him.

    So this Andy Greenwald is a poor man’s Chris Hardwick?
