It may be last to the cable-channel party among the major American sports, but MLB Network has gained many fans after three months of off-season and preseason fare. The main course arrived this week with regular-season coverage, headlined by tonight's launch of Thursday Night Baseball in San Francisco. Sixteen different teams are showcased in the first eight games on the schedule, with veteran voices such as Bob Costas, Jim Kaat, Joe Magrane, Harold Reynolds and Matt Vasgersian in the booth.
Read on for previews of Parks and Recreation, Krod Mandoon and the Flaming Sword of Fire, Harper's Island and Southland.
