It's Friday the Thirteenth! To everyone attending ComicCon: I am intensely jealous right now. It's the only time of year I hate
living on the East Coast. In TV news, White Collar season four
premiered this week. I'm still at the beginning of season three so I'm
thinking a marathon is in order this weekend. Covert Affairs season
three also premiered and I'm not really sure how I feel about the
direction the show is going.

Video of the Week:
This is a skit that David Tennant and Catherine Tate performed. If you don't know who either of those people are, they're both brilliant actors. In Doctor Who, David was the Tenth Doctor and Catherine was his series four companion, Donna.
Have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday!
