Tonight’s Episode Of Falling Skies Was Great! The 2nd Mass. Encountered Another Group Of Survivors, And Weaver Was Able To Re-Unite With His Daughter. These New Developments Really Helped Develop The Episode. I’ve Been A Fan Of The Show Since Season 1, And I’m Really Hoping That The Series Gets Renewed For A Third Season. Overall, I Would Absolutely Recommend Falling Skies. Watch Falling Skies Live: Sunday’s At 9/8C. On TNT.

Tonight’s Episode Of Men At Work Was Great (As Usual)! Tonight’s Episode Was Hilarious, It Packed Non-Stop Laughs Throughout. I Like How The Awkward Gibbs/Tyler Friendship Was Focused On In Tonight’s Episode. The Series Has A Faint Plot Progression, Which Is Milo’s Search For The Perfect Woman. The Show Is Great, Because You Can Basically Jump In At Any Point In The Series, And Still Understand The Story. This Show Is Magnificent, And If I’m Not Mistaken, It’s Already Been Renewed For A Second Season. Overall, I Would Highly Recommend Men At Work. Watch Men At Work Live: Thursday’s At 10/9C. On TBS.
