    Well I'm loving Nashville, definitely my new favourite show, even - gulp - edging out Revenge. Love all the characters, and don't mind the pile up of SLs this early because it just makes it more interesting, and offers different stories depending on which characters and plots interest you most.

    No problem with the shoplifting story. We've already seen Juliette don her hat and go out on her own without her entourage - given the mother and apparent lack of other family, she's likely felt like she's been on her own for a good part of her young life, and might find all the attention from fans and everyone fawning over her suffocating at times, and thus the need to escape it from time to time and be anonymous and alone. Too bad she's about to find out she can't do that anymore. As for the shoplifting - classic cry for help, makes perfect sense with this character.

    Also seeing the classic All About Eve continuum developing down the road, only Scarlett's version of Phoebe is far more threatening because she's the real deal.

    And I LOVE the music!!


    These two statement do not make sense together :lol:

    It hasn't. She's been hanging around since the first episode, trying various ways to get to Juliette. I think this was just the first time she actually made it as far as the gate.

    I agree, though, that having her move in seems a bit much, especially this early in the show.

    It kind of is, from what I hear. You'll hear people casually remark, "Oh, I saw Keith Urban and Nicole Kidman in line at Starbucks yesterday . . ." like it's interesting but not a huge deal. (In fact, those two have said that one of the things they like about the place is that they can live their life and NOT get mobbed.) A lot of times people will snap a picture and put it online, but generally they don't get overrun with shrieking fans.

    I love this show too. I hate country music. I love the songs they've sung at the end of each show. They are nothing like the stuff I accidentally hear on country music stations. Maybe because they've all been duets? They sound more like blues to me, and the singers don't really have a country twang?

    My favorite is still Revenge. Although they should change the name to "Emanda's so selfish she doesn't care who gets hurt and/or killed." Geez.

    Country music really is more diverse than you might expect (especially if your local station is one of those that only plays the top 20 hits at any given time!), and I like how the show captures that.

    Hehe, POI fans got all excited about them beating GA in the demo this week but after the adjustments, GA ended up winning the demo after all, LMAO :rofl: :cheer:

    Once Upon a Time is slowly becoming ABC's #1 drama this year and I LOVE THAT NEWS SO MUCH. :swoon: ABC has some really great shows going on this year IMO and I hope most of them survive somehow. I know Private Practice will be ending this year (*SOB* :() but the show itself has been REALLY good so if they're going out, they're going out with a bang and I'm enjoying that right now. Nashville is getting better and better. 666 Park Avenue is actually improving week to week. Once Upon a Time & Revenge are SOOOOO much fun to have back to back on Sunday nights now (mind frack aside, LOL) and Grey's Anatomy and Scandal have both been VERY good overall. The two comedies on Tuesday night (Happy Endings and Don't Trust the B....) were really funny this week. I'm a pretty happy ABC fan right now (as long as some of the ratings stay strong and/or improve soon, LOL). :cheer:

    The Scandal people are optimistic that they will get an order for more shows. I hope so. I want my niece to keep working. As for the plot on Scandal; it is starting to remind me of something out of Taylor Caldwell's, Captain and Kings or some other conspiracy theory novel.

    Just found out tonight that my niece gets an on screen credit. Very cool.

    I have been reading that Arrow is actually a knockoff of the Dark Knight. I do not mind at all and if so there is hopes that Laurel will either stay with Tommy or die. LOL Cause I can't stand the girl and I want the hero to be with Dig's sister-in-law. :)

    Finally watched last week's episode of 666 Park Avenue. This show is really improving. Seems to be the minority opinion, but I like the lead married couple. Their basic decency is rare on television these days. I am really interested in the story of the Grandmother.

    Hey, I'm just happy that PoI is doing fine in the ratings and I have something great to watch on Thursdays that's not an over-the-top, stale old soap. :saint:

    What's with all the (hopefully mock) hatred here?! You guys are goofy, LOL :lol:

    And Grey's has actually been pretty good this year, more like the Grey's of old, so don't judge it too quickly. I know I'm not the only one who feels that way either but they may have gone into hiding or be avoiding this thread. ;)

    Don't be saying anything bad about Once Upon a Time either. I will totally sick Rumpelstiltskin (or even better, Hook or Cora) on you, LOL ;) :saint: :p

    No hatred here. You snark on PoI fans, we snark back. That's all. ;)

    (Although, for the record, I didn't like the Grey's of old, either.)

    Gotcha. There were a few folks I saw on another board that were SOOOO annoying about it that I had to comment...the problem being that none of you guys were the people who made me laugh in the first place so my comments are all out of whack, LOL :lol: And for the record, I love Michael Emerson but just never got into POI for some reason but I'm glad he's doing well. :)

    No worries. It's nice when a lot of us have things to be happy about with the ratings! :cheer:
