This was a good week for me as I found myself liking pretty much everything on my pull list and the selections for this post run the gamut from a day in a dog’s life to a new book from an industry heavyweight to the return of the World’s Finest team to a coda for one of the worst miniseries ever that is actually pretty enjoyable.
