  • This time last year I was almost crying that we’d never see Community ever again. After the current season I don’t even care. Surprising what can change.

    • I know. Now it seems so gimmicky now. I’m hoping for a mind-blowing finale….

    • Agreed about Community. Without Dan Harmon the show has just been a tired copy of previous seasons. No real standout moments of brilliance. I’m bummed, but it will make it easier to let go if it doesn’t get renewed.
      Will be watching/DVRing:. TBBT, Glee, Elementary, Community, The Office, VD, Scandal

    • Truth. So sad it’s come to this but this season has just dampened any feelings I’ve had about Community. It’s not been good at all. Not all terrible but not the show I used to love.

  • You left SCANDAL and BEAUTY AND THE BEAST off the list?!! And no, links are not the same as “what to watch tonight.” If I didn’t know better, I would assume they were not on tonight since you didn’t include them.

    At any rate, my list:

    The Vampire Diaries
    Person of Interest
    Beauty and the Beast (online or on demand)
    Scandal

    Comment by MaryAnn – May 9, 2013 06:39 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • So based on that …… you don’t know better? LOL

      Comment by Lauren – May 9, 2013 07:04 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Person of Interest – Without a doubt, the best show on TV! Can’t wait for the finale BUT hate to see them close up shop for the summer just as things are really getting HOT!
