Does the world want or need an unrelated show called 'How I Met Your Father'?
How do the "How I Met Your Mother" creators plan to follow up a season misguidedly set entirely at Robin and Barney's wedding weekend? Reportedly, with a "HIMYM" spin-off.
According to Deadline, "HIMYM" creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas are collaborating with Emily Spivey ("Up All Night" creator and "Parks and Rec" alum) for a spin-off that, if picked up, would be titled... wait for it... "How I Met Your Father."
The French import series continues Sundance's impressive move into scripted drama series
I first heard "The Returned" described as "a French zombie series," which is inaccurate. Though people rise from the dead, they are as they appeared and behaved before their initial demise. Though all are ravenously hungry when they reappear, it's for normal food and not brains.

Bland characters, forgettable stories and a tenuous connection to Marvel
No new show arrived this fall with more expectations — or punctuation — than ABC's "Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D." It was a spin-off of the wildly successful Marvel Comics films. It had Joss Whedon attached as a co-creator (even if he wasn't going to be around much due to his Marvel movie commitments). ABC was so confident in the thing that it scheduled it opposite "NCIS" and built an entire night of all-new programming around it, under the belief that "S.H.I.E.L.D" would cast a powerful halo around any shows placed near it. It was going to be a blockbuster akin to "Avengers" or "Iron Man," drawing in viewers from all demographics — and enough of them who weren't already watching TV in that hour that it could stand on its own opposite TV's most-watched drama.

Dan and Alan also discuss HBO's "Seduced and Abandoned"
Happy Monday, boys and girls! For two weeks in a row! It's an eclectic Firewall & Iceberg Podcast this week, as Dan and I discuss a documentary (with some fictional elements) on HBO, a French zombie miniseries (if that's the right way to describe it) on Sundance, and check in on the great season of "The Good Wife" and an uneven but mostly good start to "Scandal" season 3.
Next week's gonna be either the long-promised all-"Breaking Bad" podcast, or it's going to be an hour heavily dependent on reader questions. Either way, the email link is below. Use it. Please.
