Sounds good!
Donnie Wahlberg said before Boomtown had aired that it was going to be the best show on t.v. and I was shocked he would say that and it ended up being one of the best shows I have ever seen. Why did they get rid of that show and is it coming back? That really upset me and I tried to write to NBC about it. They sell DVDs for the show, but don't continue after the second season? What gives? I will watch whatever Wahlberg is involved in next, though. He really did a good job so did Fearless.
