I'm not usual a half hour comedy person, but these (B99 by the same folks as Parks & Rec, with The Good Place also created by one of them, Michael Schur) are just so much fun. I love them very much.

And Jane the Virgin comes back on Friday. Hooray!
Michael Schur was a writer on The Office too, wasn't he? I think he played Mose, Dwight's creepy cousin.
Yep! He got P&R going as an Office "spin-off," but it obviously progressed from there. I love him. He is a Chaotic Good fellow with a keen eye for comedies with tons of heart. He's great at ensembles with lots of love for one another! Also, he's always bringing in more and more diversity, which is cool.
Not a wholesome trottin' race, no, but a race where they sit down right on the horse!
Like to see some stuck-up jockey boy sittin' on Dan Patch? Make your blood boil? Well, I should say!

The Shannara Chronicles are back tonight at 10, not on Freeform, but on Spike. It's magic, battles, gorgeous scenery and even prettier actors. :P

Anyone else watching The Resident? It feels different than Grey's Anatomy, House, and ER. I'm not entirely sure how I feel about it, but as long as Emily Vancamp and Matt Czuchry are on it, I'll watch.

Of course, I started watching it because ads for it kept coming up while I was catching up on X-Files.

I've been watching and so far, so good. I like the cast; the veteran Bruce Greenwood as the egotistical head surgeon brings some depth to the show's sort-of bad guy. It's not surprising, considering how most people feel about health insurance, that the show has made the bean counters and up-coders who care more about the bottom line than patients' lives the real "bad guys." :P

I've been watching The Assassination of Gianni Versace series on FX satellite channel. OMG! Tonight was the 3rd episode. I think there are 6. Correction - 9.

I remember it being bad. I just never imagined how bad.

I haven't watched it...and now I'm kind of regretting not watching. :oops: All the reviews I've read have praised it.
I don't think I want to start in the middle of the series. Maybe FX will rerun it sometime.

They're playing previous episodes before a new one starts. Last night was episode 3. It's every Wednesday ight on FX 10 p.m. I think they're also playing them during the week.

Part 5 of 7 was on Sunday night, very interesting presentation.
Should probably be shown on the History channel to attract a wider audience.
I've found it easier to tear up tickets at 8/1 instead of 8/5.

Blackhawks broadcaster Eddie Olczyk is cancer-free: ‘We beat this thing’
Eddie Olczyk finished his chemotherapy on Feb. 21. Then he had to wait nearly six weeks for his final scans to determine if the cancer was indeed gone.

“I don’t know what those scans are going to say and I’m scared still,” he said on March 2. “What will they say? What are they going to tell me?”

Well, because of emergency hernia surgery, Olczyk had his scans early — and he got the news he and so many in the hockey world had been waiting for. He’s cancer-free.

“I’ve had enough crying to last me a lifetime,” Olczyk said on NBC Sports Chicago on Thursday night. “I got the call on March 14 at 5:07 p.m. letting me know my scans were clear. And I never heard a better phrase in my life. I’m now 10 days on with the rest of my life.”

Good for Eddie.
It's nice to get some good news after the last few days, when it seemed bad news was on repeat, repeat, repeat.... :(

I can understand a low % for HBO, since it's by subscription and not available to everyone. Guess that would be true of Netflix, too. I know I can't watch Netflix (unfortunately, because it does have stuff I'd like to watch) because of my not-wonderful download speeds, as well as the cost.
FX is a standard cable channel, but I wonder how many people regularly check its programming? It's really just been in recent years that it's developed some quality original programming.
