    Already watched tonight’s Criminal Minds (it airs on Tuesdays in Canada) and it’s a really great episode. Classic CM if you ask me.

    The whole Sara/Grissom thing might as well be over with. It is hardly an issue on the show and seems silly at this point. Just my 2 cents. :)

  7. Jared says:

    Its all about Arrow tonight!

  8. John says:

    Arrow, Suburgatory and AHS: Asylum!

  9. Jenna says:

    CSI. Sara and Grissom were always a huge reason I tuned into the show, so I am curious about how they handle their relationship. It’s certainly not an ideal situation.
    The Middle and MF remain my comedy favs.

    Well, I guess Arrow went to the Sandy concert ’cause I ain’t seeing it on my CW affiliate!

  15. ScorpionGlow says:

    Arrow did air. Does anyone know when it will? It isn’t on the schedule for next week.

  16. ScorpionGlow says:

    *didn’t. Sorry!

  17. JP says:

    I would have loved to watch ARROW but my CW aired the concert instead. Anyone know when it’ll show up?
