Link - Justifying: Season Three, Part Two

Season three of Justified recently wrapped up, and Les Chappell of A Helpless Compiler was kind enough to invite me to chat with him about it. Les, for the record, is one of the most awesome TV critics around. In addition to the wonderful writing he does on his blog, he's recently begun to write equally great reviews of The Borgias over at The A.V. Club. In short: if you're not reading his stuff, you should be. (If you're not convinced, read the post he wrote on hats in television and you will be.)

Justified fans, feel free to check out our discussion using either the above link or this one (which will take you to the specific post). Not surprisingly, there are major spoilers for the entire season.

Classic TV Coverage - "The Dick Van Dyke Show"

Today I am excited to announce a new, long-term project here at the blog: classic TV coverage of The Dick Van Dyke Show. I'm planning to review every single episode of this terrific sitcom, starting Friday, May 11th with the episode "The Sick Boy and the Sitter" and proceeding from there with one episode a week for the rest of the spring and summer. They'll probably have to stop during the fall, but we'll see. If that is indeed the case, they would likely resume around the same time next year, for however many years it takes to cover the entire series.
