    I’m sorry to see Human Target go but I’m not surprised. I fully expect Chicago Code to follow, which will be a shame. The Bones spin off really didn’t show me much…

    If people watch the Bones spinoff simply because it’s sparsely related to Bones, they’re dumber than I give them credit for. Stults is painful to watch.

  • Ace

    Hate that I was right about Chicago Code. Poor Shawn Ryan has had a rough year!

    I don’t want House to end at only 8 seasons! /:
