  • I’ve heard from someone related to the show that on tonight’s Boardwalk episode Gillian does something incredibly twisted and sick-can’t wait.

    • I think she kills jimmy 2.0 to get the house.

    • It can’t be more twisted than seducing her own son. That…takes the cake. Anything she does from that point will seem tame, I think. But I haven’t watched it yet, so maybe it will blow me away.

    • How are you hating something you haven’t seen yet?

      Comment by Will – October 28, 2012 07:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Perhaps I should have said I’m hating the idea of the inclusion of Frankenstein. To me that isn’t part of the story book lexicon for young people. It’s taking things to a different place and not one I’m in favor of seeing. JMO

        Comment by Templar – October 28, 2012 10:10 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • I have to agree with you. That was my beef with tonight’s episode is that Frankenstein isn’t a fairy tale, it’s a classic novel. I have a feeling they will be doing that more often as they run out of material to use from actual fairy tales, and I’m not thrilled about it. I also can’t figure out why his Storybrooke name was Dr. Whale, I can’t see the significance of that to Frankenstein., It seems like most other characters have names that relate to their fairy tale counterparts, eg. Regina means queen, Red Riding Hood is Ruby, etc.

  • I am excited for tonight because last week Emma and Snow were not in the episode and the episode felt a bit empty without them. To be honest, I kind of just want Emma and Snow to be in Storybrooke already, its hard to spilt the screen time in the 3 worlds. Oh well if Emma is only in one scene, next week we finally see her backstory #maybepeoplewillfinallyseehowawesomeJenniferactingasEmmaSwanis

  • HOMELAND OBVIOUS-THEORY TIME: instead of persecuting brody right away, they use him to gain intel on abu nazir. his family is NOT in on the secret, but then maybe the daughter finds out because she’ll be dating the VP’s son. BOOM. genius in the house! blowing minds since 1999 (not my actual birth year, just rhymed the best)

  • Wikipedia says it is the 99th episode of the Mentalist?

    • And you have complete trust in Wikipedia? Met any French models on a dating site lately?

      • LOL @ french model. Because the internet doesn’t lie.

        • tvline not the internet

          Comment by Joe Doe – October 28, 2012 01:19 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • i love how people make fun of wikipedia but no one can answer your question – - my theory – it’s the 100th produced episode, maybe we just didn’t see one so it’s only the 99th aired. wonder what the hell is going on with the missing episode??

      PS people who don’t trust wikipedia are fools. i used it every day in college to do basically anything, and a mistrust in it reflects more clearly an inability to correctly search and filter information. sad, sad society. .

  • The Mentalist of course. Could CBS please tell Amazing Race to finish on time and quit causing problems for The Good Wife & The Mentalist.

  • why is everyone and their mom saying it’s the 100th episode of the mentalist??? according to wikipedia it’s only 99, and i counted the seasons’ episode counts myself. i’m highly baffled. wtf guys?

    Comment by ohlala – October 28, 2012 11:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I don’t watch the show, so I can’t say this is for sure the reason, but sometimes shows will count special 2-hour episodes as 2 separate episodes. Maybe that is it?

      Comment by Britta Unfiltered – October 28, 2012 11:43 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • it was just a one hour episode. i literally can’t find a solid reason why this is happening. it’s just weird and uncomfortable.

        Comment by ohlala – October 29, 2012 02:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Good grief, Homeland has been so on fire this season, it’s making me resent everything else on television for not being Homeland. Even Walking Dead I’m having a hard time mustering excitement for. All I can think the whole WD episode is, how soon until I can watch Homeland? I wish they hadn’t premiered so close together or weren’t on the same night. How can I focus on any other show when I can’t stop over-analyzing every single Brody facial expression all night?
