    A similar thought went through my head. When I saw that she was alone in this scary building...and then a big guy all in black appeared, I thought, "you cannot win, dude!"

    Spoiler

    It's official. I am madly in love with Meryl Davis.

One of the things that bugged me about Morse was that he seemed to be falling for a new woman every other week (which may have been in the Morse books--I've never read them.) Poor Laura seems to be waiting on Lewis but the show is more concerned about the mystery at hand. I love the soundtrack too.
    I like that he's taking it very slowly. Even though I never saw his wife myself, I can't bear shows where someone loses a spouse one day and hits the dating scene the next. It feels so fake and disrespectful and wrong.

    I agree but ... it has been several years by now.

    Robbie & Val were one of the few successful, long-term marriages we've seen in the police force. It's a cliché but true that the divorce rate is very, very high among the police. Robbie & Laura would make a good match, though, because she has the same ridiculous hours and of course deals with the same kind of darkness in her job.

    Meanwhile I watched episode one of Camelot, which just started airing on CBC. I thought it was ... okay. I love Joseph Fiennes as Merlin (heck, I'd love Joseph Fiennes reading the phone book), and Bower has the right mix of innocence and determination for a young Arthur. I could have done without the gratuitous sex scenes -- I think there were 4 or possibly 5 in the first episode alone -- but it wasn't enough to put me off everything else. And I love the look of the ruined Camelot castle.

    So, good enough to have me tune in again next week at least. And about a million times better than the last version of the legend that made it on to TV. (That would be Merlin. Awful, awful, dreadful, and laughably bad.)

    I'm trying to watch that and I agree with you about Fiennes as Merlin but the actors playing Arthur and Guinevere just look like they came in off of the surf in Malibu. That might not be fair to them but I can't get past this.

    Perhaps that's why they filmed their dream sex sequence on the beach?

    I forgot that---I wonder if that is where the idea started.

    The Secret Circle--pretty good. I like that each character has a history that will likely be unveiled over the course of the series. The acting quality is uneven and the diversity is sorely lacking, but I have high hopes. I also love seeing shots of my hometown. Steveston is one of my fave neighbourhoods in Vancouver!

    The Vampire Diaries, meanwhile, continues to rock my world. OMG, Matt and Jeremy are so hawt! And poor Andie!

    CW is re-airing the pilots for Ringer (8:00) and The Secret Circle (9:00) tonight for anyone who missed them.

    I liked it, but I didn't love it. It has potential, let's see if they start to kick things into a higher gear in time. I like how Faye just came out and said, "let's cut to he chase...you're a witch". In the past, shows have let an important plot point go on forever until finally a big reveal. I like how a character does what we think, and just get it over with!!

    It looks like one of the group of six might be 1/4 non-Caucasian... And I was admiring the old homes used in the show and didn't notice that Vancouver is where this one is being shot! (Oops...)

    Have it recorded, will watch it today. Good to know the show is still rockin'!

    Not sure about Revenge. Sounds like a good movie or mini series but a prolonged tv series? I have my doubts but will try and catch the first couple of episodes. But Grimm looks GOOOOOOD!!!! I can hardly wait! Why could it be starting next week instead of the rest of those shows?! LOL

    I watched the first 10 or 15 minutes of Secret Circle. I didn't dislike it, just decided I was waaay too old for it.

    I wish they hadn't axed Eastwick from a couple of years back. Similar idea, for grownups. Of course, that one was worth watching just for Paul Gross.

    I enjoyed Ringer and Secret Circle, and I'm 49.

    I really miss "Eastwick" also. I was waiting years for it to become a series. I want Anne Rice's "The Witching Hour" to become a series also, but maybe on HBO or Showtime.

    I must have missed "Eastwick." I like Paul Gross and loved his character in "Slings and Arrows."

    I really liked Eastwick, it had a quirky Picket-Fences-esque feel to it.

    Slings and Arrows, oth, is in another world altogether -- one of my favourite series ever.

    If you like Paul Gross, try to find Gunless. It's a Canadian Western. Hilarious.

    Sorry, Ioan, I don't love you THAT much.
    I swore after the way Hellcats ended (plus the ruining of Life Unexpected) that I was done with watching any CW shows.

    I'll have to check out Pan Am only because there was reportedly filming just blocks from where I used to live in Bay Ridge Brooklyn.

    My first drooling - er, I mean sighting of Paul Gross was in the Canadian TV movie "Getting Married In Buffalo Jump" co-starring Wendy Crewson. Not that it would have mattered but it was even a good story.

    I'll look for the Gross movies--I did see one about (of all things) curling. I thought I would be bored but really enjoyed it.

    I'm curious about the Playboy Club. I'm not expecting it to be good, but I like Laura Benanti very much, so I'm at least going to give the first episode tomorrow night a shot.

    I'm also going to check out Revenge. You can download the script for free on Amazon.com. I wasn't that impressed with the script, but I'm thinking about checking it out anyway.

    I like her too, but the show sounds flat-out stupid to me. Not going to bother.
