Alright I've got that reformatted...

Based on the plot alone, I'm really looking forward to Thunderstruck. Today was the first I've heard of it, but AMC + SciFi and I am in.

All of those other dramas look like they could be good. I'll watch Thief of Thieves and the Diamond Trade drama based on the names Kirkman and Scott on their own.

I wouldn't be surprised if at least one or two of these stick around and rival the quality of Mad Men or Breaking Bad. Then again I think that Rubicon had a chance to do that too, but they didn't really give it a chance after one season.

Tinseltown theaters are releasing classic movies this month. The Searchers is one of them. Totally worth it.

Glad to see Thunderstruck going to series. I wonder if that puts the kibosh on The Voyage (the other science fiction/alien series they've had in development).
