    It's worth watching just for the little bit between Gray and Miles at the police station at the end...

    He gave her his truck, which was part of the reason he was looking at buying that car this week.

    With commercials, no doubt. I virtually never watch anything with (unskippable) commercials. Well, I'll see.

    Thanks for the pointer!

    If you have Hulu, they also have it.

    I still like it. It's light and fun. It's not must see TV, but it's a decent way to pass an hour of time (well 40 minutes on the DVR).

    Tonight is the season (series?:() finale of Stumptown. I've grown to really like this show. Never read the comics, so I have no idea what they were like, or what fans were expecting. I'm guessing this is a bubble show, as far as renewal, although I've heard no buzz either way.

    It keeps me entertained, the #1 job of a TV show. :)

    I like it enough. It's not a must watch, but it's, as you said, entertaining. If it goes I won't miss it, but if it stays, I'm in for another season

    Going in to the season I thought I'd like Prodigal Son much more than Stumptown. Coming out of the season, it's completely reversed. They've managed to make Dex a likable yet flawed PI character surrounded by some solid supporting characters.

    That's about how I feel. Hopefully tonight's season finale isn't a cliffhanger. Heck, I'd lean that way whether or not in comes back. I hate cliffhangers.

    Funny, I like Prodigal Son more than Stumptown. Wonder when the season finale for the former is? Last Monday's could have been a fitting finale. In any case, I like the Dex/Grey/Ansel relationship.

    Stumptown and Prodigal Son are in entirely different categories for me, and never get compared. In other words, my wife will watch Dex with me — usually with The Unicorn in the same session — but never Malcom. Apparently Dex is fun enough to somehow sneak past the police procedural filter.

    I believe next week is the season finale of Prodigal Son. Renewals have not been announced for either show. I'm hoping that's just due to the COVID-19 effect, as I'm enjoying them both.

    I'll have to post on the Prodigal Son thread.

    Personally I kinda wonder if we'll see a lot of shows that were probably borderline on renewal getting renewals this year because this has also really limited the pilot season stuff. I think I read somewhere that almost none of the pilot shows had really gotten much if any filming done.

    It's a little early for most announcements, especially bubble shows.

    Same here. Really enjoy Stumptown, but dropped Prodigal Son some time ago.

    I like Stumptown, too. I didn't even realize this was the last one of the season. I hope it returns. I want to meet Dex's [?].

    Excerpt:
    Lastly, what have you [heard] in terms of renewal prospects? And how confident are you that the show is coming back?
    The show just has so much story left to tell. It feels in some ways like we’re really just getting started… but just as a creative person in general, you always try to stay in the middle and prepare yourself for any outcome. But I’m hopeful. It’s been such a thrilling experience, and when the show is cooking on all cylinders, there’s nothing more fun in this world to be doing… I think that everybody is very proud of the show.​

    What a non-answer.
