    "True Detectives" "Shameless" "Girls" "Looking" (Not on broadcast TV though)...Until "The Walking Dead" returns February 9th (The prison storyline is done!!! :cheer: ).

    I'm slowly catching up on "Downton Abbey" and "Sherlock" on Netflix and HuluPlus. I don't like to jump into the middle of a series. I have to watch from the beginning with every episode in order.

    The premiere of "Looking" was good. But I'm reserving judgement just to see if it becomes too stereotypical. Gay stereotypes get me annoyed.

    Only "The Slap" and "Emerald City" interests me of the new shows mentioned.

    With the right actor/actress, I would love to see Peter Pan. It has to be someone who can sing as well as fly. I loved Mary Martin. Flying live will be quite a challenge.

    At first I watched it only to be mesmerized by Tom Mison's beauty and his soothing British accent, not really paying attention to the dialogue, as I didn't want to invest any more time in watching a new show. But now, I think I'm hooked. Man, Tom Mison has got to be one of the most beautiful man I've ever seen. And even though I usually prefer clean shaven men, Tom looks better with long hair and the beard. But he still looks beautiful clean shaven. I've seen pics of him from various films, and he can look very different in each one, but still beautiful. He's like a chameleon.

    The season finale was well done. Glad they are keeping it at 13 episodes a season instead of trying to drag it out to 22. Some series work better that way.

    I'm interested in "Emerald City" if they do it right. NBC was probably looking for something similar to ABC's "Once Upon A Time"

    Yes, but it's a bit different when you know that millions are watching, rather than hundreds. If someone makes a mistake it's a much bigger deal.

    Thanks AliasJohnDoe - I'm always anxious for Wed ratings since I love Nashville and want the show to keep going :) As usual, the overnights don't look great, and then I found this nugget on the same site:



    This makes a lot of sense to me - I love the show, but often DVR it anyway because I don't want to stay up until 11 on a weekday. Looks like I'm not the only one :)

    AMAZEBALLS!! (such a weird saying:D) Sleepy Hollow is by far the best new show of the season for me. I can't believe how much stuff happened in that finale! And to end it the way it did...how the crap are they going to get out of their various situations?? I'm really impressed with the show, I love the characters, I love the writing, and I actually like the fact that it scares me a little bit. :lol: I'm not generally a fan of stuff that genuinely creeps me out, but this show does it in a way that it's okay. I'm so happy it's coming back for another season! :cheer2:

    For a second, I was getting excited for a TV movie about Peggy!

    Don't know where else to post, but before I went to the hockey game, I was in an Apple Store and guess who else was checking out the Mac Air? Jacob from "Lost"! OMG, I was so excited!

    I hope he didn't hand you a candy bar or a pen and look at you meaningfully. :) (I'm just now watching the series for the first time -- only got a few episodes left to go!)

    The season 2 of Defiance is listed as beginning in June. It is quite the wait. :(

    It's one of those late spring/summer series like "True Blood", "The Killing" and "Big Brother". I like having a summer season of new/returning shows instead of a schedule full of reruns.
