Did anyone watch Fortitude, the new series on Pivot? (Pivot!) Great sense of place, even though it's a place I wouldn't even want to visit. Fortitude is a town just inside the Arctic Circle where there's never been any violent crime, but that sense of safety is shattered when a man is murdered. Good cast -- Christopher Eccleston, Stanley Tucci, Michael Gambon.

Not surprising...it's only a year and a half old, and it comes as part of DirecTV's basic package but Comcast doesn't offer it at all. Pivot's programming has been mostly repeats of documentaries and cult TV shows (Buffy, Farscape, Veronica Mars, Friday Night Lights). Its only original programming has been low-budget stuff like talk shows, so it's remarkable that Pivot should come up with something as expensive and ambitious (and GOOD) as Fortitude.

Aha. That's what happened to Buffy! Fox had it, last I saw.

Penny Dreadful is back, as stylish and ghoulish as ever.

I'm not loving The Good Wife this seaseon.

Me neither. I wish she'd pick one job and STAY THERE.

I think Fox is still showing Buffy on Saturday mornings, early.

I dunno about The Good Wife this season. I still watch it (well, I would if it weren't on at the same time as Game of Thrones, so I record it and watch it later).

Pete -- It's FX that shows one Buffy episode early in the morning, not Fox. Pivot shows a lot more episodes (six scheduled for tomorrow, for instance).

Chris -- Yes, that's a problem with The Good Wife; Alicia is good at starting things, not so good at finishing. This whole last season (the campaign) was a mistake, IMO.

It's almost as if "they" (producers, writers, whoever) don't know how to show Alicia dealing with success. She comes so close to rising to the top of the heap each time, but then she veers off in a new direction where she has to start building up again.

Has everyone been reading about why Kalinda left the show?
