  • Can’t wait to see Supernatural and watch Cas on the Case. This looks like a really fun, creative episode.

  • Totally surprising myself with this, but PBS all evening. 2 hours of Doo Wop nostalgia followed by a Rod Stewart Christmas special. I know.

  • American Horror Story and Nashville tonight. I know that Supernatural is at its best when they do these wonky stories, but I’m just not feeling this episode enough to tune in live. Supernatural is best as DVR fodder this season anyways.

    • I respectfully disagree. Supernatural is having a great season. Jeremy Carver has brought new life back to the show. Supernatural is must see tv this year.

      • Woah woah woah. Respectfully disagree? This is the Internet. That’s not allowed here.

      • Mmmm no it’s not. It hasn’t been must-see TV since season 3, and even though the stories are better, most of them aren’t have-to-watch, mythology-driven episodes. This season is mostly for fun so far. And that’s fine, no one’s arguing that. But it’s just better for a rainy Saturday with a few episodes back-to-back than taking time out of my schedule to watch it when it’s on.

  • The Hour is one of the best British shows today, very happy to have it back. Will also be watching Suburgatory and Nashville tonight, though I’m getting very close to dropping the latter.

    Since everyone enjoys a list! This is for yesterdays “show overload”. I see how ridiculous those lists look now. I had to jump in after those commenters were defending balaji like he was a war hero being berated by Ann Coulter.

  • I really should learn to check these articles before I leave for work, because I would have loved to have recorded Charlie Brown. I was just listening to their soundtrack a couple of hours ago. The kids singing Hark the Herald Angels Sing puts a tear in my eye every time I hear it. (To be fair, nearly all Christmas shows and movies put a tear in my eye. I confess to being an emotional gal.) You know what they never air that I would totally love to see again? The Best Christmas Pageant Ever. I haven’t seen it since it came out when I was a little kid. Oof, I just showed my age with that reference.
