NBC-TV video: FNL Cast on Final Season
As you'll recall me mentioning previously, I watched all the Season 5 episodes of FNL on DirecTV already, so I can tell you with certainty that this is THE best season yet.

Per the above, which comes with a photo gallery, I actually watch all the current TV shows starring the former FNL cast members.
I especially like Fox-TV's new show, The Chicago Code, with Matt Lauria and Jason Clarke as police detectives, Jennifer Beals as the Police Supt. (and Clarke's character's former partner),with Delroy Lindo dazzling as usual as the ethically-challenged Chicago councilman, with both a do-good angel and corrupt devil perched on his shoulders.
They are pitch-perfect in their roles in a show that may be my favorite new 2011-12 show.
Last week's episode, "Wild Onions" was the best yet, and hopefully, Fox will show the wisdom to pick it up soon for a second season, since there are lot of compelling stories a cast this talented can tell about a city with a million stories.
A sneak for this coming Monday titled, "St. Valentine Day's Massacre"

Minka, we've missed you this past year!
We were relieved to have heard months ago that you're going to be spending so much time in Miami, both the real one and the TV version via ABC's remake of Charlie's Angels.
