      • Wow, I love it when shows have a sense of humor like this. Just like in Make it or Break it when they said that Josh Bowman’s character “never gave you a second thought before he took off to the Hamptons” I laughed for like, ten minutes. I really wish Terra Nova had gotten another season to find it’s footing. It could have been amazing and Commander Taylor was a huge part of that.

  • I can’t believe Blue Bloods is not included in the Friday night “must watches”. BB is an excellent show from every angle. On top of that how can you not sit and enjoy watching Bridget Moynahan as well as Jennifer Esposito two very good looking actors.! :-)
