  1. I am totally listening to this again after my initial comment cause you guys talked about so much and I know I am going to forget stuff because I didn’t take notes.
    I am going to watch Happy Endings over the summer because my twitter feed loves it. I saw the pilot last week and liked it way more the 2nd time.
    I am really glad The Glades it back even if I hate what they did in the 1st episode. Ray needs to die already.
    SO excited about White Collar returning. And Leverage. And Big Brother.
    I need to set up some of these ABC Family shows on the DVR. I did’t get into PPL and now I might have to get the DVDs to catch up. Or join Netflix again. Maybe I will drop my HBO (because I don’t think I can watch True Blood anymore) and get Netflix.
    Again, LOVED Anthony so please have him back soon. Also, where is Kyle? It’s lonely here in the comments lately.

  2. Patty, Glad you liked Anthony. We had fun and will surely have him back.

    Allison, We were talking about Bones S.6 Ep.22, “The Hole in the Heart,” and the death of intern Vincent Nigel-Murray played by Ryan Cartwright.

  3. Thank you!

    The podcast was quite cool. You guys are funny and Anthony was very nice. And I still can’t believe that House finale.

  4. Now that Teen Wolf has been on a couple of weeks – is anyone watching? I saw the first 10 minutes but haven’t watched any other eps. I keep hearing good things. Do I need to catch up?
