    But did you picket in front of the store in your off time? or take to a highly visible forum where far more than your friends and family would hear your complaints?

    I have no faith in the ability of Hollywood to make a Wonder Woman film that would be anything but horrid. Even the series remake that was attempted a few seasons ago looked awful - and was thankfully not picked up. I'm skeptical, but if anyone could make the show right, it's probably the CW.

    And that was made by Joss Whedon, who generally is good about making strong, 3-dimensional female characters!
    Q: Why can't I read the competition threads?
    A: Competition forums on the board are available to those with a Season Pass or a premium membership How to View Kiss & Cry

    At least the movie had female characters in it. Most of those movies only have them as an arm piece for the guys.

    Whedon penned a script for a Wonder Woman movie a couple of years back, but the PTB DC/WB decided it wasn't what they wanted. Now he's all Marvel's. I'm surer they're kicking themselves.

    Only two network drama shows I've been watching this season are Person of Interest and Beauty and The Beast. Love them both! Survivor and the Amazing Race have also been enjoyed this season. Other than that....reading!

    Being watching Luther on Netflicks and I like this show but it has more in common with Criminal Minds rather than Columbo except for the lead character's manner of dress. There are some unique storylines (especially Alice!) but what I do not get is why the seasons are so short.

    "The Walking Dead" mid-season finale ratings breaks records:
    http://blog.zap2it.com/frominsidethe...cast-hits.html

    According to AMC, the ratings momentum makes "Walking Dead" the "first cable series in television history" to rank as the #1 fall TV entertainment series in the key 18-49 demographic. That means "Walking" outdid all broadcast rivals in the demo including heavyweights like "The Voice," "Modern Family" and "The Big Bang Theory."

    You spoke for me; although I'd like to be proven wrong.

    I love Cold War spying stuff and am looking forward to the show. However I think basing the show in the 60s and 70s would have been better and I am not sure about Keri Russell.

    Very typical of British drama.

    I just saw some teasers for a new A&E show called Bates Motel. It focuses on the killer and his relationship with his mother. I am really looking forward to it, I love anything with horror. It also comes from someone involved in Lost and Friday Night Lights. Lost was my favorite show ever and I have heard wonderful things about FNL. Starts in 2013 but not sure exactly when.

    Just caught up with my episodes of Raising Hope and love it just as much as I did when the show first started.

    I loved Continuum, my fave new show. Time travel plus police procedural (it works), Vancouver set as Vancouver. I'm pleased to see that it will air in other countries. They packed a lot into season one, at 10 episodes long (I'm looking at you, Revolution).

    Red Widow is a remake of a popular Dutch TV show Penoza... glad Dutch TV-makers start getting recognition for their work alongside with the Danish ones (The Killing, etc.)
