Thank you very much to everyone who participated in our Save "Terriers" effort yesterday--you never know if taking a few seconds to send out an email will do anything but at least you know that you did something. If you haven't had a chance, send an email to FX and politely ask them to give us another season of "Terriers". Last night's episode was superb - intercut with flashbacks we learned why Hank was canned from the force, how he met Brit, as well as the seeds of destruction in Hank's marriage. Powerful stuff, we'd like to see more of it next year.

Our good friends at the Parents Television Council, aka idiots, are now going after online video streams by issuing a report that children aren't being safeguarded enough at these websites: Hulu, Comcast's Fancast, AOL's Slashcontrol and AT&T's U-verse. Some of the websites have responded by stating that they aren't targeted at children and teens, have no content meant for children or teens, or they already provide software controls to provide parents with a means to limit their children's access to specific parts of the streams. Shades of Tipper Gore.
