Vampire Diaries deserve it. Even though I got sick of all things 'vampire' and didn't think I'd like the show, I gave it a shot and was pleasantly surprised. Also sad about Rescue Me though it is probably time to end. Will watch Leary and Tolan's new show.

I just paid $24,31 for an iPad2-64GB and my girlfriend loves her Panasonic GF 1 Camera that we got for $34,26 there arriving tomorrow by UPS. I will never pay such expensive retail prices in stores again. Especially when I also sold a 42 inch LED TV to my boss for $678 which only cost me $68,18 to buy. Here is the website we use to get it all from, CentSpace.com

So FEARnet is making its first original series? Like Tim pointed out, every channel seems to be getting into making their own original, scripted shows. I LOVE IT! The more the merrier i say. I look forward to checking Holliston out.

aka "The Vampire Diaries won a bunch of awards on a show where the voting doesn't count" WAY TO GO!. I liked Hannah Murray on Skins (as in the original one, not the non-existant MTV version which was real but i chose not to acknowledge) so it'll be nice to see her on something more often, she'll be the 2nd Skins-er to go to GoT. Last time i saw her she was actually in a weird movie with Eva Green and Matt Smith (THE DOCTOR!) called Womb

I checked out a couple of pictures of Hannah Murray, and it looks like another spot on cast for Game of Thrones. I swear not awarding the emmy to casting directors Nina Gold and Robert Sterne would be like not giving Fringe and Community a single nomination . . . . oh wait.

Saying Rescue Me is "calling it quits" makes it sound like their giving up on the show. This is incorrect. It's been known for years that the 10th anniv. of 9/11 would be the end of the show. And this mini season was shot with last years mini season all at once. They basically shot a full season and split it into 2 short seasons. When Leary was promoting the show last year, they had long finished filming.
