Oh wow I never knew that about that family.

This show has an outstanding "The Long Ships" vibe, which is a really awesome and famous book. Rather than portraying the vikings as nothing but ruthless killers, they give them some intelligence and show that nearly everything they do follows logically and rationally from their culture and belief system.

Touch and Body of Proof... caught up to current. BOP supposed to be a straight through season with no reruns.

Got to watch it. Kinda spoiled last week's episode a bit, but I figured what happened would've happened, so I wasn't surprised.

FOX has ordered a second season of the year’s most thrilling new series THE FOLLOWING, it was announced today by Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company.


I'll be interested to see where this goes but after this weeks episode it can go anywhere. Glad they are moving the story along very well.

Seriously? How many episodes did they actually air? Talk about not giving it a chance...

I swear a show like Lost would've been canceled if it debuted in 2012/13.

Never watched a full episode, but I have my doubts it was ever good. That's mostly due to the one dude's hair.

the first 2 seasons were legitimately great. last season was just awful. this season is less awful, but still no good.

it's had a few moments in the last 2 seasons but yeah seasons 1 and 2 were pretty awesome. it seems that the only truly good episodes are the ones that involve montez or karl.

got to the end of the second season of breaking bad. Someone here said the second season was the worst season of the show, so I'm glad I'm still liking it.

in ABC's defense, the premier brought in a 1.8 rating, which is the lowest in the network's history. week 2 had that number almost cut in half.

Watched the CSI:NY season finale finally last night. Craftily set up that it could serve as a series finale if they aren't renewed.

ABC has an issue with shows that attract male viewers. Last Resort was given a short leash as well.

Every now and then something reminds me of the Pro Thunderball episode of Upright Citizens Brigade. So then I go home and watch it.
