Good news Primeval fans, Season 3 will be back on BBC America starting May 19th. I’m still ticked that they killed Stephen(James Murray) off. He’s the hot one, second from the left. Why are they always killing off the cute ones? Here’s a promo for the next season:

In completely unrelated news, Den of Geek has a theory why more people haven’t watched The Wire. Apparently it’s my fault, or I should say all Wire fan’s faults:

“Given that human nature invariably includes a dislike of being told what to do, it’s not much surprise that many recipients of what we could politely call ‘The Wire lecture’ decided not to act on it. And it’s created a segment of people who really suspect they’d like the show, who know that it’s something that’s supposed to be really good, but are disinclined to give it a try. Simply put: the sheer force of those who love the show is enough to put many people off it.”

I sorta agree. I didn’t watch it until the entire series was over, and only after being pestered non-stop by three people that it was one of the best shows EVER. I thought it was going to be too Sopranos violent, with constant and brutal violence in every episode. Instead I was drawn in by superb writing and actors who completely absorbed their characters. It is really an amazing series. I won’t demand you see it but I highly recommend that you do so. SOON.

Here’s a video of the Blind Boys of Alabama singing the theme song, Way Down in the Hole, at the Portland Waterfront Blues Festival in 2007. The footage is a little shaky but worth listening to:
