  • I love the Glades and I love Matt Passmore! However I am not sure if it will fair well at 800pm. It was perfect at 900pm. However at it is the summer I am sure it will still do good!

  • On the May 12th edition of SNL with host Will Ferrell, I really wanted to see a Celebrity Jeopardy! skit with Darrell Hammond as Sean Connery but my two other “dream celebs” would be Abby Elliott as Katy Perry and Jay Pharoah as Denzel Washington.

  • I just saw a comment by Taylor Cole “I hope the fans won’t hate me too much”. I will say I’m just one little fan but in my opinion. The fans are used to Jim wandering away from Callie. We have to realize it’s the way it is written. You are a beautiful talented woman. I am a Kiele fan. I looked in on a couple of episodes. He was attentive to her at first. He now seems fascinated by Jen. Not unexpected. I am one fan who won’t hate you. If anyones they might hate the writers. Wish you the best. I don’t expect you will get the same hatred as the Sam character.

  • I had decided my new way to view the Glades would be—–Don’t read the ep schedule avoid promos and Good Grief don’t read cast tweets. They are about private matters. Don’t know what they mean and eavesdroppers may find out something they don’t need to know. Carlos tweet about DL was certainly my tiebreaker. I,m going to take the show one ep at a time. I think I’ll enjoy it more.

  • season 3 now in. Not bad. I didn’t mind the BC. Season 2, a B List piece of crap. Why race cars and stepping out of character? Why shaky head actors who can’t act. They don’t need busloads of girls to show how sexy Jim is. We heard the PR on that. Have a special and put all that in an informative format. I’ll watch.

  • I don’t get the comments of more Jim on the screen. He dominates the screen. He’s always the best looking and often surrounded by beautiful or at least good looking gals. How much more do you want. His support are nice looking but not comparable in looks. Of course he is the star and drives the bus. That is too be expected. I like him lot but OMG enough already.

  • I love Callie, Jim & Jeff. I trt not to watch the promos but this am I saw Jeff chewing out Callie. Are these writers going to let Jeff interfere with their happiness. We,ve other women. a convict husband, callie’s career. Could they cut a break and let them have some happiness. It is REALLY getting tiresome.
