The comedy went past adorkable to just plain good
"New Girl" wrapped up its first season tonight with an episode about the gang trying to talk Nick out of moving in with his ex-girlfriend. (I reviewed it here.) It was, on the whole, a strong first season for the comedy, particularly starting around the point where Dermot Mulroney showed up. I interviewed the show's creator, Liz Meriwether, about the learning curve that any first-year show goes through, what she learned about each of her characters, how she adjusted to losing Damon Wayans Jr's Coach after the pilot, and more. That's all coming up just as soon as I declare squatter's rights...

Dan and Alan preview the network upfront week, review USA's 'Common Law' and look back on 'Desperate Housewives'
Next week will be crazy for the Firewall & Iceberg Podcast due to the broadcast network upfronts, so we tried to prepare both ourselves and our listeners this week with 40+ minutes of speculation on which bubble shows will survive and which are doomed. Also, we found a bit of time to review USA's "Common Law," look back on the unlikely success of "Desperate Housewives," and, as usual, chat about last night's "Mad Men."
As always, you can subscribe to The Firewall & Iceberg Podcast over at the iTunes Store, where you can also rate us and comment on us. Or you can always follow our RSS Feed, download the MP3 file or stream it on Dan's blog.

Characters, action and humor all in perfect alignment in Marvel's biggest movie yet
Like any right-thinking nerd with no childcare or other scheduling conflicts, I made sure to see "The Avengers" during the opening weekend. Our movie team has covered the film pretty exhaustively, but as both a longtime Avengers fan (who uses this poster as part of his son's bedtime ritual) and a longtime Joss Whedon fan, I couldn't resist jumping into the fray. I have a spoiler-filled review (as with many of my TV reviews, designed to be read only after you've seen the film) coming up just as soon as I show you my vintage trading cards...
