TV Junkie: Another Hour of '24'; 'Heroes' & 'Studio 60' Are Back
A Word or 80:
Spent the weekend in Canada, my first visit, in the province of Quebec to be exact. I found the radio programming to be innovative and excellent but television sucked. I'm sure there's some good programmes (please give me cred for the spelling) out there but in a first glance/overview kind of perspective it was wanting. Dear Canuck friends, don't take it personally, American TV sucks for the most part as well, the shit is just packaged better and it has an air freshener stuck to the box.
