Not even in the same conversation based on what the team was looking for. Salmons is Willie Green 2.0. He played with Monty in Philly too and he'll be able to step in immediately and do what coach wants. His corner ...

I haven't watched it yet, but based on the description, if you liked Happy Valley, you'll probably like The Fall. Scully from the XFiles plays an Irish detective chasing down a serial killer. It's also a short 5 episode season. It's been awhile since I've seen it, so I'd imagine season 2 should be...

They want to believe but don't. Overall a pretty positive piece considering 4 of the 5 writers picked the Pelicans to finish 5th in the division.
