Set your recording devices!

If you've been holding off watching the best new show on network television, then this is your lucky day.

Starting tonight, Bravo will re-air every episode of Friday Night Lights. One episode will air tonight and three more tomorrow afternoon. This pattern continues from now until mid-April.

Here's some details:

“See [‘FNL’] for the first time or all over again, beginning with a single
episode on Friday, March 16 at 6 p.m., followed by a triple serving beginning
Saturday, March 17 at 1 p.m.

“[‘FNL’] on Bravo continues every Friday (one
episode at 6 p.m.) and Saturday (three back-to-back episodes beginning at 1
p.m.), culminating on Friday, April 13 at 6 p.m.”

Set the VCR or DVR or make plans to catch up on one of the truly great show to come along in the past few seasons. Trust me, it's worth it.

It worked for Battlestar Galactica...

We all knew the producers of Veronica Mars are big fans of Battlestar Galactica. But who knew that love would extend beyond just incorporating the word "frak" into the show?

Should Veronica Mars survive into a fourth season, creator and producer Rob Thomas has a plan to jump the show's chronology ahead a few years and have Veronica taking classes at the FBI Acadamy. Thomas has prepared a test reel (which should be on U-Tube by the time I'm done writing this...) of the show's potential new direction to show to CW execs in an attempt to sway them into renewing the struggling (ratings wise) series.

This news comes on the heels yesterday of reports from E! On-Line that Veronica's fate had been decided and there would be no fourth season. There hasn't been any confirmation of this story or any comment from the CW or anyone involved with Veronica Mars.

I have a feeling this show's fate may depend a lot on of Alexis Bledel decides to come back for an eighth season of Gilmore Girls. If Gilmore is gone, I see Veronica's chances being better as a tent-pole show for CW.
