  • So what happened to the episodes of House and Alcatraz from last week that got bumped for the Daytona 500?

    • Alcatraz ep 107 that was originally scheduled for last week is now scheduled for 3/12 per The Futon Critic.com’s ep guides.

    • Who cares what happened to House last week. Saw an AWESOME Daytona 500 though

      • No, who cares about NASCAR?
        1) NASCAR isn’t a sport.
        2) NASCAR has one rule: turn left
        3) NASCAR is only fun in video games.

  • Wow i couldn’t be less interested in these shows, not that they’re bad but I’m Reality TV averse so i guess it’s just a rerun of Castle for me tonight.

    • you’re aware that only one of the shows on this list is at all “reality,” right?

      Comment by amanda – March 5, 2012 05:24 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Not quite, The Voice is a “reality competition” and the bachelor is a “reality whorefest”. So that would be two “reality” shows that I would rather give myself a concussion than watch.

    • You should watch Pretty Little Liars. I gets so addicting! probably after 2 or 3 episodes you won’t want to stop watching.

      • As a single man in his mid/late twenties; the premise of Pretty Little Liars isn’t for me.

        Comment by Nico – March 5, 2012 08:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Two episodes of Alcatraz! Doing my happy dance! :)

    DVR: Lizard Lick Towing and Pawn Stars

  • House aired here in Canada so i cant speak to that, but the Alcatraz episode that was missed is rescheduled for March 12 apparently. What that will do for continuity we’ll have to see.

    Comment by Newo – March 5, 2012 05:46 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • The Alcatraz episode we missed here in the US there were/are places to find it online if you know where to look. But it is not either of the episodes described above. I have seen it but for those who haven’t I don’t think it’s fair that the continuity will be thrown off. Although it is FOX so I guess we should be happy they are showing it at all.

    Comment by Tori – March 5, 2012 06:21 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • It shouldn’t hurt the continuity since they have been showing some of the other eps out of sequence as well.

      Comment by Mike 'Stu' Stuhler – March 5, 2012 04:17 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • From the list I saw this morning this would have been the first week out of order. Now epguides has it fixed to show the episodes airing in the order FOX is showing, which doesn’t mean it was the way the creators were planning on.
