TV Ratings for Friday 2/22/2013:
WOW! Friday night is like a graveyard for TV shows!!!
Deception was *intense*. I love, love Victor Garber (so scary!) and Tate Donovan (who's really been a revelation for me). The only real disappointment is Will, who is kinda just too stupid to live.
So, did Victor Garber try to kill Joanna? COLD! And why did Joanna tell Julian where she was hospitalized--he could easily have read the medical records, as he is a doctor (hee-so funny! I always laugh when Julian talks about his medical knowledge because I just don't buy it--he's hawt but he's also so dumb). And Mia's boyfriend was scamming Mia even before he met the Senator--are we to forget that? And doesn't Joanna's mom have Alzheimer's--are we forget about that too?
So, the other company tampered with Julian's miracle drug, right? But I don't think they had anything to do with Vivan's death (at least I hope not--too easy and clean).
Love this show!
I didn't see the ratings posted in here yet but I'm stoked and a little surprised that Chicago Fire beat CSI in the ratings this past week!!! (On the other hand, Nashville's ratings need to go back up so I can feel a little better about that show getting renewed for a second season. )
An MLB.com reporter asked what one thing Votto couldn’t do. “I can’t skate or play hockey,” Votto said. “Well, I can skate ... but I can’t stop.”
"I guess I'm just...I'm not used to someone putting me first." -Emma, Once Upon a Time, episode 2x3, Lady of the Lake
I think they've got Nashville in a really tough timeslot.
Where is AliasJohnDoe with our links?
Just been reading up on two TV shows J J Abrams is trying to sell to the networks. The first is titled Believe and is about a gifted child and her ex-con protector who are on the run. And the second is about a future where cops and androids team up to fight crime. Both sounds good and if Abrams is in charge that means the shows, if picked up, will be feasts for the eyes. They will be airing in fall this year hopefully.
I'm so glad I decided to watch The Following! It's my new favorite show! I was a little leary after reading about how violent/gory it was going to be and really, shoulda know it's still network TV so it really wouldn't be any more rougher than any other show about murders with killings, etc. But the story is fabulous!! Every time you blink, someone turns out to be a Follower! Although I had a feeling that girl cop was sketchy from the beginning. She just seemed shifty to me. But the two SWAT guys killing the other SWAT guys caught me by surprise since I didn't link it to them killing the original SWAT guys in the woods. WHEW that was confusing. Loved the way Hardy was subtly playing the Trio against each other.
And kudos to the make-up department for their job on making Parker look younger in her 2004 flashback scenes with her parents at the Church Camp. She really did look younger like that could have been 9 years ago.
Arrow is off for two whole weeks!!! Sooooo unfair! The show is getting better and better especially since Felicity came on board the Arrow bus. hehehehe Love seeing her character growing and evolving.
Curious if anyone here watched the pilot episode of Vikings on The History Channel. So far the reviews of it have been decent, with a lot of comparison to Game of Thrones.
I watched it and found it interesting enough to watch the rebroadcast, and to catch the second episode, which is available starting today on Hulu.
Also, the ratings for the the premiere seem to be really good.
I watched and loved it!!! And will certainly be watching next week.
watch it online at the History Canada web site.
Thanks for the reminder. I recently dumped all my extended cable channels coz I just wasn't watching enough for it to be worth the extra $40 a month. But there is the odd show that I am still interested in, and this is one. Thank goodness there's an online viewing option!
My biggest concern is that with all the Norse names and the fact that all the men will no doubt be sporting similar beards, it's going to drive me nuts trying to figure out who's who.
I regret not being able to watch The Amercans but I refuse to pay for an entire cannel just to see one show.
I only pay for an entire channel when it comes to figure skating, ie BOLD, TVJAPAN. Otherwise, I will just wait for the TV series to be on DVD.
ETA: I get FOXCanada but I did not pay for that channel exclusively like I do with BOLD. It maybe part of some package I got.
OMG, Julian and Joanna are getting it on!!! I love Deception!
I'm also rather impressed with Travis Fimmell (former Calvin Klein model-turned-actor). I knew he looked familiar but didn't place him until reading the some reviews. As an actor, he's not half-bad, and that steely, blue-eyed, thousand yard stare he has really works with his character.
Katheryn Winneck (his wife, Lagertha) is bad. ASS. I frakking loved the scene when she "turned away" the two letches that wanted to get into her knickers (or whatever they wore back then ).
This is one TV show I will watch.
Within three days of announcing the casting call for a pilot, the Real Hipsters of Vancouver reality show received a hundred audition tapes, several potential offers of financial backing from production companies and a whirlwind of media attention.
Pretty good for a bunch of hipsters, a subculture notorious for not doing much at all.
