    The Closer

    I cannot wait for this season of The Closer, I missed the bus at first on the show but when Kyra Sedgwick won the Primetime Emmy Award for best Actress I decided to check the DVD's out to catch up. I work for the marketing company that picked up the campaign for TNT for the latest season(it began again last week). I am not usually a big fan of police drama, but this show has become one of my favorites on the air right now. I figured this would be a good space to discuss what's happening as this season progresses. For those that missed the boat on the series, thus far its about Kyra Sedgewicks character Deputy Chief Brenda Leigh Johnson and her team of detectives which make up the LAPDs Priority Homicide Division. The show is set, as one might guess, in L.A. and it deals with aspects of Los Angeles crime and culture in each episode. For those that haven't seen much of the show and wanna check out more about it here's the site: The Closer

    Men of a Certain Age

    John Lennon once wrote, “Life is what happens when you’re busy making other plans.” For three men entering the second act of their lives, those words are starting to hit home in TNT’s Men of a Certain Age. This wry drama stars Ray Romano (Everybody Loves Raymond), Scott Bakula (Quantum Leap) and Andre Braugher (Homicide: Life on the Street). Now in its 2nd season, Men of a Certain Age follows the bonds of friendship among three life-long friends who are now in their late 40s. Joe (Ray Romano) is a slightly neurotic separated father of two who has a gambling addiction. Owen (Andre Braugher) is an overstressed husband and father, who works as a car salesman at the dealership owned by his father. Terry (Scott Bakula) is a struggling actor, working temp jobs to make ends meet. The friends are aware of each other's life struggles and show male reactions to life issues. I really started getting into this show during season 1 and now that the marketing company I work for picked up this campaign from the folks at Turner, I am loving the sneak peaks. I cannot wait to see what drama is in store for the day to day life of the three aging friends! For more information about the show visit Men of A Certain Age - TNT

    My Boys

    I am surprised there is no post about My Boys on TBS, or at least I did not see one. My boys is one of the most hilarious comedies on air right now. I have been a fan since the first season so when I heard the marketing company I work for was picking up the campaign a while back I was thrilled. Season 4 has not disappointed me yet. If you have not seen the show, My Boys follows PJ Franklin (Jordan Spiro) and her eccentric male pub posse pummel their way through awkward situations in search of romance. Within the smorgasbord of career roller coasters and poker games, PJ and her boys find that love can appear without warning in the most unexpected places. You can find full episodes and other goodies at the My Boys site.

    Has anyone seen Hawthorne on TNT? It is a great medical drama that is told from the view point of the nurses as they struggle to provide the best care possible to their patients. This task does not come easy, especially with the harsh truth that Richmond Trinity's doors have been closed. I have been a fan since season 1 of Hawthorne, so I was pleased when the marketing company I work for picked up the campaign. Season 2 continues to impress. You can find full episodes at the Hawthorne site. Let me know what you think!

    Memphis Beat

    Has anyone seen Memphis Beat on TNT? It is a great police drama on TNT. I found out about this show when the marketing company I work for picked up the campaign. Jason Lee plays Dwight Hendricks, a police detective who is powered by his duty, his deep connections to Memphis and his close relationship with his mother. Those very qualities make him more than just a cop. Dwight's passion for Memphis is really great, and his passion for the city's blues music scene has provided him with a unique after-hours job as an Elvis impersonator. Check out the feel of Memphis at the Memphis Beat site.

    Rizzoli and Isles

    Has anyone seen Rizzoli and Isles on TNT? I recently read the book series by Tess Gerritsen, so when I found out the marketing company I work for was picking up the campaign from Turner I was pleased. I really enjoyed the books and the show is just as promising. Rizzoli and Isles follows Boston detective Jane Rizzoli (Angie Harmon) and medical examiner Maura Isles (Sasha Alexander), good friends who grew up at opposite ends of the economic spectrum, the two remain strikingly different from one another. Jane is the only female detective in Boston

    Leverage Season 3

    Any fans of the show here on TVFan Forum?? I don't catch it as often as used to because of my job. I usually try to watch it on TNT's website. Ironically my job at the marketing firm is the reason why I got into the show when we got the Turner campaign. The show reminds me of a new age A-Team. I loved the A-Team when I was a kid. Definitely going to get the previous seasons on DVD when I get a chance to. If anybody else is interested in the show check out the shows website at: Leverage - TNT
