Episode 39 – Last week, we took a look at our bookshelves and movie and TV show collections and thought about which ones would do well in one of the other formats. Like, what books would make a good TV series or what movie we’d like to see become a weekly TV show. But, first we chatted about a couple news items: TNT’s HawthoRNe getting a second season and ABC setting a premiere date for V to debut on Tuesday, November 3rd. After covering our news and topic, we talked a bit about The Closer, So You Think You Can Dance, Burn Notice, Psych, and In Plain Sight.
