  1. I read on another blog that USA network is starting two new pilots. Joe Flanigan and Jason Mamoa should be in them and also if made into regular tv shows they should be regulars in them. Their fans would flock to the network and the shows.

  2. Especially since SyFy is not appearantly going to put him in a regular show.
