I loved the mix of long story arcs with one episode stories, too, and seeing the city on TV. Like "Terriers," the mutli-episode storylines were challenging but so rewarding. It's a shame that more viewers don't agree, and didn't come to either series. Ohh, short attention spans, you'll ruin TV.
Fox, reports say, has picked up the "Bones" spin-off "The Finder," J.J. Abrams' series "Alcatraz" and the comedy "The New Girl."
