I haven't even read it yet ---
I'm happy to hear the entire cast will be back. I think changes to the cast is what often hurts a show - especially one that is already struggling to a certain degree.
It sounds like they aren't going to change a lot about it - which is good. I think everything about the way the show is, is why it is such an enjoyable show to watch. If you start changing things it won't be the same. I'm happy they aren't going to do that.
I'm a wee bit worried how they are going to handle the storyline transitions. I mean..we were in pretty deep with a couple different storylines when the strike happened. I truly hope they'll do what they said and make sure all the storylines are handled properly.
And while it may only be 13 episodes, I am happy with 13. That is better than none.
