The TV Blog Coalition - And Summer Begins

It's Memorial Day Weekend, the official start to the American Summer season (we in Canada started it a week earlier thanks to ol' Queen Vicky) and the official TV season is winding down. So much for that all year round TV season eh?

There are still new episodes of Men In Trees (including the series finale) to come, and Lost finale is up Thursday, and of course, So You Think You Can Dance is just getting started, but now the networks clear their schedule so that we can focus on the summer cable series that we love, like My Boys, Burn Notice, Greek (already running), and Weeds.

In the meantime, here's what the TV bloggers were talking about:

Wait, the Canadian summer started already? I thought it was just for three weeks in July.

Actually, it's only a week and a half and we already had it.
