    Graceland looks like a keeper! Very different vibe from White Collar (grittier and very much focused on the more laid-back California lifestyle), but still has that same sense of camaraderie that Eastin does so well.

    I liked Graceland too but what did you think about the Criminal Minds type twist at the end?

    I watched the Revolution finale even though I lost interest about a third of the way through the season. Charlie is just as petulant and insufferable as ever.

    I missed the premiere of Mistresses - at first glance, it's not really my thing but I want to see Yunjin Kim in another successful series

    I watched "In The Flesh" last night. I think you got it right - sort of a "zombie version of "Rectify". Even though it's a bit depressing, I still enjoyed it. I'll finish watching the next 2 episodes tonight and tomorrow.

    I haven't seen Criminal Minds, so I didn't know the twist was similar. Though I did think, "That feels like something that's been done before." :) But I liked it nonetheless. It added an interesting layer.

    Prentiss on Criminal Minds was originally a plant by higher ups to find dirt on Hotchner. I liked the show too a lot but that bit in the end feels like a let down.

    For a premium cable series, the ratings are decent but the production costs were probably not worth it.

    Me too! Love the show. Jeremy irons is wonderful as is Arnaud n Grainger. Plus it is the most gorgeous show cinematographally. Looks like paintings from the era.

    My TV guide is showing a two hour premiere from 9-11pm on Sunday. In any case, I am looking forward to it!

    Watched "Falling Skies" "Game of Thrones" and "Nurse Jackie" last night. Glad networks do encore presentations.

    "Falling Skies" is one of those shows that seems to be getting better every year.

    I'm trying to like "Veep". But they aren't making it easy.

    "Falling Skies" Season 3 premiere does well: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/20...ampaign=Feed: Tvbythenumbers (TVbytheNumbers)

    "Game of Thrones" Season 3 finale also does well: http://tvbythenumbers.zap2it.com/20...ampaign=Feed: Tvbythenumbers (TVbytheNumbers)

    I'll post full Cable ratings for Sunday once they are up. They come out much later in the day than Broadcast ratings.

    ETA: Cable ratings for Sunday 6/09/2013: Game of Thrones, Falling Skies, Mad Men, Nurse Jackie, The Borgias, etc.

    I'm spending the next week or two catching up on Game of Thrones then I plan on downloading this season of Nurse Jackie. Excited for True Blood and Dexter!

    I hope Falling Skies and Southland comes to Netflix soon! Especially since Southland is now cancelled.

    Has anyone here ever watched a show called The Increasingly Poor Decisions of Todd Margaret? It features David Cross and Will Arnett from Arrested Development and features the same sense of humor. I actually think I like it a lot more than AR because there seems to be more of a story line and plot to follow. It is on Netflix if anyone wants to check it out.
