    To be honest? I’m a bit tired of RuPaul and her Queens. And that might be an understatement: Ru should Sashay Away for a couple of years, cause she’s everywhere on Logo. And please Ru: do not SING! Simon Cowell would buzz you out on XFactor the minute u come on stage…

  2. Georgia Madman says:

    PLEASE MAKE DAISY GO AWAY. I’ve worn my mute button out with her.

    • SK says:

      Agree with you there. I do not like Daisy at all! She’s so annoying!

      • zena says:

        Actually I LIKE Daisy. Sweets was a total douchebag to her when they broke up..I actually felt sorry for her She could do better than him.

        • maryJO says:

          Sweets was a jerk to Daisy in how he dumped her. Utter jerk. The worst. I hope she has a hot new boyfriend now, she deserves it.

          • Templar says:

            IMO she needs to grow up. She has the social flaws of a 14 year old, self centered and no filters.

          • Dora says:

            Sweets is just as bad. ….He let Daisy lead him around by his you know what…..And he really treated her badly, he didn’t think moving in together was going to lead to things being serious, yet this is the man who asked her to marry him a few times….Mmmmkay…. And the award for worst shrink goes to….

    • Drew says:

      Actually, I think Daisy and Sweets are perfect for each other – like salt & pepper, or a couple of bookends, they match each other perfectly, with what Sweets would call, “interlocking pathologies!” No, my problem with the show Bones is that, while Brennan used to be a quirky, odd, dark and moody, brilliant, character early on in the series, lately they’ve just turned her into some kind of dumb-@ss moron with not a lick of common sense. I really don’t get why they did that, but, frankly, I’m kind of “over” this show because of it.

  3. Luke says:

    I wish they would stop bringing back Daisy. Can’t we get rid of her once and for all? I really hoped that they would have hooked up Sweets with the really cute FBI agent Sparling played by Danielle Panabaker.

    • bud says:

      UGH Tween Agent Starling is the worst. Couldn’t stand her

    • gina says:

      I actually CRINGED at the combo of Panabaker’s acting and writing of Starling it was beyond weak. A FBI Agent? LMFAO!!!!

      • so true says:

        YES!!! Teen Agent on Bones was AWFUL. I kept expecting her babysitter to show up and take her back home for milk and cookies. Unbelievable.

        • Dee says:

          We don’t need another Jr. g-man, bring back Flynn or even .charlie or even Marcus the tech. Someone competent & Sparling is no prize, she kissed Sweets when she knew he had a girlfriend. Ugh.

      • Georgia Madman says:

        ANYTHING is better than Daisy. And I thought her character was decent (and very hot). The character needs some work but I’ll give that a try over the thoroughly fleshed out Daisy who is fingernails on a chaulkboard.

        • georgiamadman says:

          I’d take Hannah over Daisy. Bones needs a final Hannah episode to tie that thread off. Remember when she left, she said “This isn’t over Seeley.” So she could come back looking to reconnect with Booth and find the kid. It would be wonderfully awkward.

  4. Disastrous says:

    Watching The Following and Bunheads. DVRing Bones & Switched at birth. Also, watching Dallas.

  5. Kate says:

    Holy cow, another Sweets centric ep, ugh, defo not a must see for me.

  6. Barbie says:

    Hey, Americans, go watch Continuum! It’s flippin’ awesome <3

    • Breck says:

      Agreed. SyFy has rolled out another hit in my opinion. (Of course it means it will eventually be cancelled too early like all their other good shows, haha, but I will enjoy it while it lasts)

      • meem says:

        This isn’t a SyFy show. It’s Canadian. SyFy just bought US rights. Cancellation isn’t up to them, though they may decide not to purchase the second season.

  7. May says:

  21. Britta Unfiltered says:

    Bleh, nothing good on tonight. That’s okay though, I won’t be home to watch TV anyway. I get to go downtown to see a show tonight. It’s a comedy show being performed by Dan Harmon of Community fame. :) I get to meet Dan Harmon tonight! I get to shake his hand and tell him he’s my hero! So excited I am bursting with energy over it. I’m pretty much telling random strangers on the street I get to meet Dan Harmon tonight. I’m going to wear a blue streak in my hair when I do it.

    • Angela says:

      Whoa, cool! That sounds like fun! Hope you have a good time, and good luck with the potential meet-and-greet moment, too.

  22. John says:

    Continuum, 2 Broke Girls repeat, maybe get some of my TiVo backlog cleared off.
