Programming note: Away for a bit
Family business interrupting coverage
We've had a death in the family, so I need to go away for a few days at a minimum. I'm always working a bit ahead on some shows, so there are reviews of "Justified," "Parks and Recreation," "Doctor Who," "Game of Thrones," "The Killing," "Treme" and a couple of other things set to publish in the next few days (including the rescheduled version of my latest "Friday Night Lights" review), and both my RSS feed and Twitter should be automated to put out links to those within an hour or two of when they publish. (If you're a fan of one of the shows I listed, just check the blog within a few minutes of when it finishes airing on the East Coast, and hopefully they should all auto-publish with relative promptness.)
Beyond that, though, I'm gonna miss a bunch of episodes of things while I'm away, and - with the exception of Steve Carell's last "The Office" (I already wrote a few farewell pieces about it, and will try to cover the episode itself after I'm back on duty) - will likely just skip ahead to the next new episode of things whenever I return.
Back in a while. Please play nice with each other while I'm gone.
