    Absolutely. At this point, I don't even care what it's about.

    I noticed the commercial and the conspicuous absence of Deadwood. I guess they figured we would forget about the wrap up movies.

    Still lots of good stuff coming up though.

    I didn't know it was by him...the promo is so stupid, though!

    I guess I'll give it a shot, but I'm not happy about it! ;)

    I always give them the benefit of the doubt and try their shows. Oz, Larry Sanders, SFU, Deadwood, Rome, Sopranos, all great great shows I wish were still going to continue. Curb is about done (I believe this next batch is it).

    I found this piece from TV squad which actually kinda cracks me up:

    Stuff like those quotes doesn't intrigue me, it annoys me. People trying to sound profound, mysterious or intriguing almost never are. To me, it's the real world equivalent of "Sprockets."

    That said, the genius of Deadwood has earned Mr. Milch at least a two episode tryout.

    But I agree that the promos are truly terrible. If the promos end up being indicative of the show, this one will find its way out of my Season Pass list awfully fast.

    I just read in EW, that there is going to be another Tom Hanks/Steven Spielberg WWII colloaboration called "The Pacific." If it's half as good as Band of Brothers, it will be well worth watching.

    I saw that recently on the DirecTV schedule, but I can't remember where just now. One of the HD channels is showing it I think.

    Not much sense in them saying, "Milch hasn't started work on Deadwood yet." Usually, you make announcements to announce something, rather than to say what is not happening. :up:

    sez you

    I LOVED The Comeback. It's brilliant and hilarious. Lisa Kudrow was robbed of an actress Emmy for that role.

    I own the DVDs and it holds up just as well in repeat viewings.

    The Comeback wasn't for me although I didn't think it was bad, if you enjoy that type of humor (me, I'm squirming through most of The Office and The Comeback was even... more). I'm still bummed they canceled Lucky Louie, though, so that shows you where my humor is coming from :)
