I think this has been one of the better years. But I also think there have been too many repeats, too many weeks not on, etc.
That's just not helpful. I wanted to give The Event another chance because I'd heard so much good stuff about it. But it airs the same night as Chuck, both on NBC, and every time I'd try to watch, it wouldn't be on.
You can't maintain a following that way.
I think Chuck is suffering from the fact that NBC pulls it here or schedules repeats there and it can just be very hard to find the show.
I had one e-mail about Fringe. Do I think it will get the axe? I have no idea. What I do know is that Joshua Jackson (Peter) has been encouraging everyone to watch and that he appears to be concerned about the ratings. I would assume he'd have a reason for that.
I hope both come back next fall. I have no idea what will happen though.
Okay, this is from Debra Sweet's "True Concern for Humanity vs. Flying Robot Death Machines" at World Can't Wait:
The events we're sending this week are in New York state. But they could be happening where you are. Write and let's make plans for protests, film showings, and discussions where you are!
Stop the Drone Attacks Action & Walk for Peace Ithaca to Syracuse NY 4/17-4/22
Beginning April 17, activists are walking from Ithaca NY to Syracuse, which is home to Hancock Airfield and the 174th New York State Air National Guard. Hancock, formerly an F-16 fighter jet base, is now the national maintenance center for the Reaper drone. The MQ-9 reaper drones are used in Afghanistan, Pakistan, Iraq and elsewhere, according to Voices for Creative Nonviolence.

Nick Mottern writes in Drones Fly Through Congress to Enter US Skies that "Within weeks and possibly days, President Obama is likely to sign into law a bill that will bring unmanned aerial vehicles - drones - into US general airspace, crisscrossing the country in company with passenger planes and other human-carrying aircraft."
