  1. As one of the few north american Los Angeles mentalists still doing private consultation work for individuals in the Hollywood industries, I can attest to the magnificence of this classic series which will endure for generations in its advanced portrayal of investigative police and mentalists just like MASH has been a gemstone also from the Tiffany network.

  2. Looks like a few more jobs are about to be lost at Warner Brothers. 🙁

  3. 30th anniversary of “Survivor?” That thing started in 1994? Can’t be. “30th Edition,” maybe.

    • 1984. So much for math skills. And there’s definitely no way it started in 1984. I used a calculator this time.

  4. Michael – Survivor premiered in the summer of 2000. They air two different editions per year, hence the 30th edition will start airing in Feb 2015. Calling it an ‘anniversary’ edition seems like a stretch though.
