I hadn't heard anything about when the new season was starting, but while going to IMDB to look something up, saw that it is debuting this Sunday. A quick check of the Tivo schedule shows that they are showing the last season on Friday and Saturday for a primer of the new season.
I just can't wait to see how the airplane crash effects things.
This was so far the only book i read all of and loved it. I saw the film a few hours ago and well, it realy needed to be 3 hours. if for any thing the two sceens that I feel made the book good. The hospital sceen and the Battle at the Minastry.
