Is the optical drive heading to the land of the misfit gadgets?

Legion - Good, but has tons of holes...

Αφού λοιπόν έχει αρχίσει το καλοκαίρι, είπα και εγώ να επιστρέψω σε κάτι ελληνικές τηλεοπτικές σειρές που ήθελα να δω αλλά δεν είχα τον χρόνο λόγο εργασία ή μαθημάτων. Με την έλευση του καλοκαιριού έχω παραπάνω χρόνο στο

Καλό μήνα σε όλους! Ήρθε επιτέλους το καλοκαίρι! :-)
This has been Finale Week (I guess with the end of the semester come and gone I now have more time for entertainment ;-) ) In any case I decided to make all of my season and series finale comments in one bigger post. Yes, it's filled with spoilers so don't read if you don't want things spoiled ;-)NCIS & NCIS: LAHonestly these two shows are like a soap opera, who cares about a season finale?
