    What about the show Let It Go

  • Northern Star

    Hmmpphh, ‘Touch’ is the main reason we’re not getting a ’24′ movie this year, booooo…

    • Zafada Dynamic

      24 was watchable but that show’s done. There’s really nothing more they can do and they just wore it out. Touch is great but it’s a hardcore drama. It’s smart as hell and it’s just so strange I can’t wait to see it again. They’re going to have to end it before that kid grows up though.

    I’m not the least bit surprised if that Allen Gregory show don’t come back this year. Don’t care anyway, at least we still have the better shows on Sunday nights. Although MacFarlane’s works are starting to get a little over the top. I liked the older seasons of Family Guy and American Dad.

  • crzypengu
