It's Back!!!

If you're anything like me (handsome, an appreciator of good humor, a sexual tyrannosaurus, and wanted by "the man" in three states), you religiously watched every episode of Midwesterner’s Guide To Living In New York City, or MGTLINYC to it's superfans (us). It was a show that taught us, among other things, how to feel love again, how to put back the spark in our collective relationships, how to properly and safely use a soldering gun, how to make a tangy chicken salad on a budget, and how to cure all the diseases of the world with a bear hug full of hope. And sadly, it also taught us that good things never last. Tragically, it was taken off the air over the summer, never to shine it's light upon our open, searching faces again.

Or so we thought.

In a rare move of intelligence and "giving the people what they want," the Powers That Be at the network have issues a last-minute reprieve! MGTLINYC has been allowed another season, which has it's premier on October 2nd! It's a great day in the morning for all we fans who grew to love the Ol' Midwesterner, to be sure.

Now, yes, there have been some changes. A house band has been added, there's some business with a cornfield, and most noticeably, the lovely Gal Gotham has been replaced by the gruff, show-killing mug of one Ted McGinley. I've heard talk as well that a wise-cracking robot/kid-sister/ethnic neighbor/POW Camp Sergeant will be waiting in the wings, ready to join the cast should the ratings take another dip.

However, these are but superficial changes. The heart will still be there; the warmth and joy remain unchanged. And this time, it's here to stay!

Until it gets cancelled again!

NOTE: Be sure to pick up the complete first season of MGTLINYC, priced-to-own on DVD!!! It's got all the episodes you've grown to love, plus exciting bonus features which quite possibly include director's commentary, a video tour of the set, several nude photos that were found in a dumpster behind Ted McGinley's house, and an annotated bar guide that details what drinks pair the best with each episodes.

Thanks for breaking the news, C-dog! In my opinion, he missed us too much.
