  • Zilch. Zip. Nada. Perhaps a movie or something on demand.
    *sigh* been such a dull week for me TV wise.
    I was hoping for a new Grimm episode, but alas, a couple more weeks for that I guess.

    • I am pretty sure Grimm is a repeat tonight. I agree – great show.
      I am especially loving Silas Weir Mitchell!

      • I agree on Silas Weir Mitchell. Until Grimm, all I ever saw him do was low-lifes and criminals. The one that sticks out the most is his character on SVU and his facination with Olivia. So happy to see that he really is a good character actor. Loving him. We’ve named him “Poor Monroe” in our house.

        • Monroe actually makes this show for me. I’m glad the produces recognized his value to the series early on and expanded his role.

  • Woohoo Supernatural after all the breaks this season it’s getting close to being another great season finished. Don’t forget this Sunday on AMC it’s The Walking Dead season 2 finale which is one I’m sure will not disappoint. Also plugging for Monday on SyFy Being Human is also getting close to that season finale. What a season it has been for these shows and what a tough act to follow for the summer season. Get ready for the conclusion of Breaking Bad…I absolutely cannot wait much longer. Hopefully Burn Notice will be able to get me through the weeks leading up to it. Happy watching to all.

    I hope Dean does get to put on the shoes!

    Maybe he can do a dance number for us :)

    • I think Sammy the Giant would be funnier in the ballet slippers.

  • Nikita, Merlin, In Plain Sight and Fairly Legal are my must-watch shows tonight.

  • Fridays and Saturdays are the days when my DVR gets a well-deserved breather. Grimm is usually it. I guess I’ll record Ultimate Fighter…at least the coaches this year are hot.

  • NIKITA all the way!

  • Absolutely Merlin, a show I find much more entertaining than Game of Thrones.
