    I like that the victim of the week on Person of Interest usually survives. That’s always the depressing part about crime shows; you learn all about the victim and their life but they’re dead. So its nice to still have that structure, but have them live

    BEAUTY and the BEAST!!! Tonights episode is going to be amazing! We’ll finally explore vincents past <3

  18. Nicole says:

    Scandal! #whoshotFitz. I can’t wait to see this episode it was shocking last week. Was it Hollis and The cytron scandal. It seemed that Mellie was having second thoughts like she knew that Fitz was going to get shot and wanted to stop it. Or maybe it is has nothing to do with cytron or Quinn story.

    The show about Vogue. If my friend with cable is home and compliant. Otherwise it’s the History Channel or Nova. Just discovered I like 30Rock; sorry it’s leaving. To “because there’s nothing better” –turn off TV, pick up book, READ. There’s always something good on at the library.
