Ugh. So NYPD Blue was the series Andy Greenwald was hinting at then. That's a massive disappointment.

I don't know what this is about, but people have know about NYPD Blue for months.

It was one of those news items I missed. I remember NBC saying they wanted to bring back West Wing and 30 Rock (to which Sorkin and Fey were both like "We are far too busy now")

Oh, nevermind then. Andy Greenwald said on the Watch podcast that a much beloved tv series is coming back for at least one season of tv, but he couldn't say what it was so it's all a big secret at the moment.

I find it half depressing and half hilarious that, with all these show revivals, Firefly isn't one of them, despite literally a decade and a half of people begging for it.

What are the best of these zombie shows? I hear good things about One Day At A Time. Twin Peaks gets my shout, but that was bananas in ways the original wasn’t.

Even things I like can stay dead. The rumour that Fraiser is coming back? No thanks.

The new One Day At A Time was damn fine TV, especially if you adore Rita Moreno the way I do

I think its probably Will and Grace.  Its just as good as it was the first time.

*pssssst*

Firefly staying dead is just fine.  It wasn't that good in the first place.

Wait Twin Peaks is dead? I thought it isn't officially and Lynch pops up every couple of months to say Season 4 might happen. Showtime would definitely agree to it if Lynch wants to do it, whenever that is.

edit: wait I read that wrong. But, the only show revival I liked was Twin Peaks: The Return anyways.

What if it was a revival that fused back Fraiser, and Cheers? You can call it “Cheers, Fraiser!”.

Its weird, all this talk of a new NYPD Blue led to me re-watching the original from S1E1 and.. fuck that NYC straight doesn't exist anymore!
I didn't see one Duane Reade or Chase bank in a single camera shot

I feel like if that a person doesn't like Rita Moreno then I can't trust their opinion on anything else.

Only shows cancelled I was watching were the Passage and the Gifted. I stopped watching Lethal Weapon after they killed off Riggs. I'm good with the Gifted being gone. The show was solid, but they hit a nice stopping pointing even if they did leave things open for another season. Kind of sad to see the Passage ending since the story was interesting enough, but that probably just means I should read the books.

Fuuuuuuuck.  The ending of tonight’s Barry might be the most brutal cliffhanger I have ever seen.

How is this season almost over?

She even gives an Electric Comopany call out in one episode and I freaked out about it because it was so awesome!

Dammit. I just started watching Billions, but I'm switching to Barry instead and then I'll watch Billions after.

Every week Barry has destroyed GoT while so many critics heap tons of praise on GoT.

Barry is by far the better series. It's having the better season. It might be the best show on TV.
