    • I missed it until I saw that George is now going to be jealous of Zoe’s latest potential love interest. George is great with Tansy! They already broke Zade.. now their going to break up George/Tansy. Blech.

      • Agreed. What were they thinking breaking up Zade? I’m so over George/Zoe. I hope it never happens.

        • So they broke up Zoe and Wade? I haven’t watched it since they put them together. I’ve always been a Zoe/George fan. Maybe I will start watching again. Sorry for the Zoe/Wade fans though…

    • It’s been a long time, and there was no real foreshadowing or announcement that it was going on such a long hiatus. I’m afraid this hiatus and the decline of the writing this season might kill this show. Sad to say, but I don’t adore it as much as I once did. It’s starting to feel stale.

  • NCIS and Body of Proof! Ziva finally goes for that long simmering revenge and Tommy is accused of murder! If you haven’t watched Body of Proof this year, check it out. It is far more suspenseful, and edge of the seat than it ever was last year, and the quality has dramatically improved. (And this is from someone who was initially against the revamp.)

    Comment by MaryAnn – April 9, 2013 09:27 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I agree with everything you said! I didn’t think I was going to like the revamp. I love it! Don’t miss the cut characters at all. I really like the character of Tommy. Can’t wait for revenge Ziva…this is gonna be good!

  • Will watch Cougar Town. I just got into it this year & have been catching up on the afternoon repeats on TBS via DVR. :) :)
    My one complaint about the show is an episode I watched from what I think is last season about Ellie & Bobby surfing… Surfing?!?! LOL really?!?! It’s suppose to take place in Sarasota & there are no surfing waves out here on the gulf side of FL!!! The writers should have done their homework & had done paddle boarding instead that’s what’s big out here!! If people want to go surfing they head to the east coast of FL to surf like Cocoa Beach not the beaches near Sarasota. It still could have been funny with Ellie losing her balance!!! ;)
    Overall, I like the show & it’s funny. That part just annoyed me. I do like how they pick on Tampa. I use to live there. LOL.
    I use to like HOD til they destroyed Wade & Zoe :( Why is Zoe making George jealous… Is he going to be a cheat on Tansy now?! Ugh.

    • yes the surfing ep was during season 3

  • Josh wasn’t a Dr., he was a sports attorney or something. Do they mean Tom, her ex (Bill Hader)?

  • Cougar Town. But the better not kill Chick.

    Comment by Tori Melching (@lizjaxe) – April 9, 2013 12:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • I’m sure that’s just a mistake, it’s too early for Zeorge, probably meant makes Wade jealous. Glad HOD is back though. I watched season 3 and 4 of the OC during break to get my Bilson fix. and Benjamin fix, hoping Advocates gets picked up.
