  • The preview looks good. Maybe I can add that to my summer TV schedule. The only other summer shows I love are Pretty Little Liars and True Blood

  • Alumnae is plural, alumna is singular. Sorry for being not only Captain Grammar, but Captain Latin Grammar.

  • Here’s a nutty idea: let’s swap the genders of the main characters of A Gifted Man and then shop it as a brand new series. At the very least, we could get NBC to air it in the summer.

  • erica durance!! am i so glad to see her on tv again. i love her…though i can’t seem to picture her as a doctor. she really left a mark as daily planet’s intrepid reporter, lois lane. :)) she’ll always be lois lane to me..she did an excellent portrayal of that character. can’t wait to see her treat patients now.
