YES! BBCA is finally showing Season 2 of Ashes to Ashes. They've been extemely quiet about this show for close to a year, responding to e-mails only with vague generalities. Glad to see thy're finally showing it.

Not the final season. Second to last. Without trying to give away spoilers (DirectTV already aired season 4) there's one more season under contract.

Season 4 was - IMHO the second best season. (Season 1 just blew me away with how it took the movie and extended it.)

Looking forwad to the *real* final season - #5. Sorry for those without DirectTV becaue they'll have to wait another 6 months or more before they see it.

Not to sound critical, but that is a really poor choice of pictures for FNL.

(1) At the end of season 3, Coach Taylor was fired as the coach of the Panthers and took a job to coach the cross-town East Dillon Lions.

(2) In the 5th episode of season 3 Smash - who had graduated at the end of season 2 - left the show entirely and went to college.

(3) How long has it been since Lyla was a cheerleader?

If I was guessing, I'd say that picture was a season 2 promo. For a season that originally aired on NBC. Back in September 2007.

You couldn't find a more recent one?

Friday Night Lights, that's all I need to know. I love this show.

And I guess the Lost finale, though that is ending, not beginning. That said, it's good enough to warrant two mentions.

Final note: Isn't this site supposed to be getting a facelift soon?
