My bf and I became obsessed with this. Staying up way to late on way too many nights to watch as many as we could. Then we got about caught up, paid for a few on iTunes and recorded the remaining to watch later. Something about this past season just has not clicked for us. I think we have 2-3 more to watch on iTunes (or online but we prefer to watch together on our big TV) before we can begin going through our DVR but we just lost interest very suddenly. He has lost interest more than me but I don't know that I would have gotten much further. Maybe we will watch this summer when nothing good is on (other than Big Brother!).Same here. This season I've been waiting a couple months then watching a group of episodes at once on the abc website. Lately, I just haven't been motivated to catch up on the second half of last season. Something just seems missing with Ojai and the Harper's out of the picture.

Did anyone else hear that Chuck may get another season?! That's great news! :cheer:

I hope so! :cheer: I thought the intersect angle would get old, but I think it's been managed well. I :rofl: so much when Chuck started humming Darth Vader to psych up Morgan - priceless.

"Smallville" says goodbye on Friday (5/13/11) after 10 years!!! And I've seen every episode.

"Smallville" has become the longest running science-fiction television series in the USA.

Really ? WOW.
With great shows like Stargate or BSG, I don't get smallville at all.

I absolutely love Allison Janney, but


MIDSEASON SHOWS/TOO SOON TO TELL

Mr. Sunshine (ABC)

I'm shocked it's still on the air. It was painful to try and watch the first 3-4 eps. I couldn't do it, despite Allison.

:lol: I feel like the only person in the States mourning the impending cancellation of "Outsourced". That show makes me PML. While aware that "racial insensitivities" are a real issue for many critics, my view is that any stereotyping is being done out of love and respect ... and I've actually learned a lot about Indian culture and people.

Sigh, goodbye Gupta, funniest guy on television. And, sigh, we'll never see the blockbuster American/Indian pairing of Todd and :glamor: Asha.

Consolation Emmy nomination for Diedrich Bader, please!

CBS has formally announced that they are renewing "Rules of Engagement".

NBC has placed a 13-episode order for Chuck for next season.


The buzz is that "The Event" will be cancelled, but that's not formal yet.

It sounds like CBS is trying to renew "Two and a Half Men". They're in casting for Sheen's replacement. They want to have that casting done by May 18th, their upfront presentation. TV Week said that they'd been looking at Hugh Grant, but talks fell through (sigh). They're looking for an actor at that level - movie star.

I like Outsourced too. It got so much better after the first few awkward episodes. I'm looking forward to the wedding finale tonight.

I'm glad Chuck got picked up. I don't expect The Event to be renewed, but I'm holding out hope that maybe another channel might pick it up. I doubt it, but one can still hope. Ditto for V.

You should watch the movie it's based on, IMO it's better :)

That's okay, I'll be the only one mourning Better With You. I think it's a cute show :shuffle:

Bones, Castle, Modern Family, and Borgias - got all mine back! Thank goodness because I am still not adjusted from losing Lost, Numb3rs, Flash Forward, Tudors, and Sarah Connor Chronicles.

Then I can't imagine we will lose DWTS, Biggest Loser, or even the Bachelor (though it wouldn't kill me to lose the Biggest Loser or the Bachelor).

AGT, SYTYCD, and Bachelorette (with Bachelor Pad to follow) are starting up for the summer!

I love Allison Janney, but I could not even get through that first eppy of Mr. Sunshine. It was soooo bad.

I enjoy the entire ABC sitcom lineup, minus The Middle. "Better With You" is my nice little show I watch while making dinner. A Better With You/Modern Family/Cougartown/Happy Endings/Mr. Sunshine lineup would make me quite pleased.

I loved Better with You - it's very clever and sweet.


Community isn't on the list, I hope it's safe - it's one of my faves.
