        Those are pretty cool, I hope they keep expanding SW Miniland, it was a nifty design last year but more really would fill it out. I'm interested in seeing the gallery as well.

        That Sandcrawler is really impressively big, they should release it as a real set.

      Patton 360 is good. My only complaint about the series was it rushed through late 1944 and the rest of the war too fast.

      It was a good one. Tony is one paranoid dude. Working it way too hard. The lies will catch up with him.

      Next week looks good with Woo (Wooo!!)

      Not certain if it'll be back or not for a second season. From what I've read I've been getting the impression that this may have always been intended

      ARCHER on FX (or, possibly, better yet, on DVD!)

      I know. That made me laugh. I'm glad that Mama Archer didn't get it because it would be in character that she'd be clueless on that one.

      I'm waiting for the extended version that's bound to be released later this year. Still need to pick up the extended version of the first Hobbit, too.
