Not only does this season have a kick ass opening song, but the TV episodes
are kicking their fair share of ass too.
to admit that I've only seen a handful of the shows in this season, but
from what I've seen it's to die for.
UY movie was in theaters making even more money and the TV show was reaping
the rewards. The show just keeps looking better.
