Anyone else watch the premier of The Following tonight on Fox? This is the best network show I have seen in years. Kevin Bacon as a drunken ex-FBI detective, and James Purefoy!!! (aka Marc Antony of Rome) as an insane serial killer. I normally absolutely hate cop shows, but this is more a serial killer show with a lot of horror aspects, really awesome for a network show.

Watched it, and I'm intrigued enough to keep watching. Certainly a good first episode.

God...that 80s show was awful. I made it through like 5 minutes on YouTube. I want my 5 minutes back.

I'm female and I've never seen a single episode of "Grey's Anatomy" and "Private Practice."

Yes, I'd like a medal. :wink:

Tonight's Castle episode was really good. I thought it was that person who did it at first, but then, and as usual, they jumped from one suspect to the next and kept you guessing until the last 5 minutes.

I liked tonight's HIMYM episode. Gave me a few laughs, first in a long time. Had stupid stuff, too.

2 Broke Girls was really good with one comment that had me :shock:.

Stupid DVR got screwed up and I didn't tape HIMYM. And CBS is the only channel w/o On Demand to watch later. Guess I'll ahve to stream it.

Not sure what is going on with that show. I love it, but now it seems it won't have a very long shelf life anymore.



From James Van Der Beek’s twitter feed:

Sad to say ABC has pulled #Apt23 and will not be airing the 8 remaining episodes any time soon. Translation: we’ve basically been cancelled.

relantel wrote:in the hulu department, 7 episodes in (of the 13 total) of "That 80s Show" from 2002. While it grows on you as it progresses, it appeared to try and capitalize on the success of That 70s Show, which was in its 5th season when this aired. Only problem is they couldn't get the dynamic that 70s Show had. That and the setting of 1984 and San Diego, and a smaller yet older base cast. Near as I can tell, the only alums of this show that went on to anything is one is on Grey's Anatomy and the other on Always Sunny.

Yeah. GoT starts the same day The Walking Dead ends (3/31).

Anyone hear a more specific date for when Breaking Bad is supposed to be back?

I used to like Tony Bourdain, but much like Howard Stern he is becoming what he once mocked.

I watched the pilot of that HBO show "Girls" last night because I remember reading that it was nominated for a bunch of stuff. It was weird, probably won't continue to any more episodes.

They are only in the "audition" phase now. The actual competition starts in another week or so.
