  1. Don’t forget Ron Howard has the NBC drama Parenthood premier March 2nd in the US, staring Gilmore Girls Lauren Graham.

    Speaking of Gilmore Girls…

    The first thing I thought of when I heard about the new project from Gilmore Girls creator Amy Sherman Palladino was McLeod’s Daughters!

  2. lol @ The cape.

    I’m looking forward to the Ron howard show, hopefully fox won’t mess it about like they did with Arrested development.

    Everything else is same-same but different – more cop shows, more lawyer shows….
