It's the calm before the upcoming upfront storm the beginning Monday, May 16. I suspect next week will perk up a little bit with announcement of a few pickups ahead of the upfronts (or at least rumors of them). But today is a bit slow, at least so far...
Somebody just e-mailed me asking whether "The" was my favorite show, or "Chuck." I enjoy both, but neither top my list. FX's ' " was my favorite drama of the season, and perhaps by a wide margin. It's gotta be the TV by the Numbers consensus best hour-long drama pick of the spring season because it's the only drama I'm sure both Bill and I went out of our way to watch.
I've also been pretty stoked about "Doctor Who." I'm also really enjoying "Game of Thrones." I didn't think the third episode was awesome, but still, whoever cast Maisie Williams as Arya Stark deserves some sort of bonus (note: I haven't read the books, it just seems like perfect casting though).
Anyway, the e-mail got me reminiscing about this TV season, so I figured I'd let you reminisce with me and weigh-in on what you loved or loved to hate about the season. I added a smattering of choices, but feel free to use the write-in option.
And oh yeah, you better believe I went with "Renewed!"
