Happy Monday, Boys & Girls.
First off, sorry about last week. Or the absence of last week. Not just the absence of a podcast last week, but the absence of last week in general. It's like it never happened.
So this week? We went a little extra-long as a bonus. Not two-hours, or anything. But nearly 90 minutes.
This week, we caught up on a heaping plateful of our favorite dramas, or at least dramas we haven't talked about lately, including "Parenthood," "Prime Suspect" and "Homeland." We also answered some mail.
Next week? Another slow week, so we'll catch up on a bunch of our favorite comedies. And answer more mail. If you e-mail us both as email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org.
This week's breakdown:
"Parenthood" -- 02:30 - 12:45
"Prime Suspect" -- 12:50 - 18:30
"Fringe" -- 18:35 - 26:00
