  1. Come too far to miss tonight's episode of Big Bang Theory.
    Kudos for mentioning Face Off's new show. It's been a fun replacement while the main show is in between seasons. Plus this week Sig is back!

  2. Sad after all the build up they're dumping Inhumans out on Friday, the weakest weekday for TV.

  3. Looks like you're having a good week. Are you getting Electric Dreams over in the U.S. yet? Have seen the first two episodes, pretty good so far.
