    The Glee Project. I need to make sure if I loathe Darren Criss or just his character, Blaine.

    The season finale of Jane By Design sounds great! Here’s hoping it doesn’t turn out to be a series finale instead though. It’s a cute show, I’d hate to see it canceled.

  4. Pickles says:

    Jane By Design is a cute show..but it seems like it never really took off on ABC FAMILY..The ratings are comparable to other series on the network..but it just doesn’t have that fan appeal other ABC FAMILY series get.
