    Smash is really pretty awful yet I look forward to it every Monday. I decided not all TV needs to be smart and engaging. Sometimes it is more relaxing to just sit back and be entertained even if the entertainment is cringing at how bad the writing and acting can be!! I hope they find a direction for the show next season!

    • Mellie says:

      I agree… mostly. I thought last weeks episode was actually a pretty good balance, though there were still one or two cringeworthy scenes. If they keep it in that vein, I think it’ll work out. But if we get more episodes like The Coup… No thank you.

    • jenna says:

      hopefully they get rid of the son! His bad acting just ruins so many scenes

    • Danielle H says:

      I love it. It isn’t perfect (although the first few eps were pretty awesome for me).. but I seriously look forward to it EVERY week. This week’s ep sounds interesting!

  2. I’m just finishing re-watching Eureka. I’m so excited for the last season. I really wish it wasn’t the last season. I’ll also be watching Bones and possibly Smash. Smash is so inconsistant.

  3. N. says:

    “Bones” and “Castle” for me tonight. Glad it’s back this week-“Castle”. ;)

  4. Lime says:

    Smash for me! I dunno, I just love the music – Shaiman and Wittman are such clever songwriters that I end up not really caring about plot holes. I must have watched “Don’t Say Yes” about a dozen times this week! Finally a song for Christian Borle! He is so great.

    • Christian Borle was the ONLY good thing about last week’s episode. ‘Don’t Say Yes’ had all the cheeky fun that the series should have, instead of wallowing in Julia’s domestic drama (ugh…more of that tonight? Boo!)

  5. mia says:

    Season 2 of Lost Girl is fantastic (it just finished airing here in Canada).

    You are lucky you get two seasons back-to-back; that nearly year hiatus killed me :P

  7. Sg.Grant says:

    Busy Monday for my DVR. CBS comedies, Fox shows, and Smash and Castle.

  8. CJ says:

    Having to program around Charlie Sheen’s departure seems (so far, at least) to have freed up 2½ Men from its traditional sitcom stasis. In past seasons, they’d make a plot move, only to wipe it out after an episode or two. Hence, we got the brief marriage to April Bowlby, the aborted engagement to Chelsea, Alan burning Lyndsey’s house down, etc. I hope they let the show evolve now.

  9. Serenity Fan says:

    FIREFLY!!! I mean… CASTLE!!!

  27. Jane says:

    Add me to the list of people who are inexplicably excited for Smash. I love it despite its faults.

  28. Looking forward to the continuation of the story in Lost Girl. The show deserves a lot more love for being a fun, sexy genre show with great characters and mythology. It’s the second season premiere, so a great time to jump in!

  29. Bella says:

    So happy Eureka is back, now when will Warehouse 13 return?

  36. tp says:

    I am looking forward to Eureka. I am not looking forward to what I THINK i saw in the previews. I think I saw Carter kiss Jo. After waiting all this time for Allison and Jack to get together if they wipe it out because of another time jump, I am going to be PISSED. I am really going to miss it :o(

  37. Christina says:

    Can’t wait for Bones tonight! Looks like a great episode!

  38. Karen says:

    House. So sad that it’s coming to an end. :(

  39. Justin says:

    Bones, House, 2 Broke Girls, Lost Girl and Eureka are on my radar tonight.

  40. Danielle says:

    Just watched the Eureka promo – my money’s on a dream sequence happening for the crew on the ship. I mean, Jack reciting scientific theory? Come on.

    • tp says:

      I would love for that to be true but I think the 4 year jump is gonna happen. I wish someone on this site would do a weekly recap. I miss the days of TV Guide.com doing recaps. Le sigh.

  41. theresa says:
