      Law and order UK??

      • Maryann says:

        It is on BBC America. It’s the British version of Law and Order. It’s interesting to see how much is different and how much is the same; the courtroom wigs on the barristers (lawyers) and the witnesses standing rather than sitting remind us that this really is a different country, but all the principles seem the same.

    • cbr1965 says:

      This is exactly my TiVo To Do List also but I watched Covert Affairs last night.

    Sunday’s and Wednesdays are great TV nights! Yay for the invention of the DVR! Remember we used to say, 800 channels and nothing to watch? Well not any more. So glad summer is filled with such great TV.

      Excellent picks, I’m watching those, too! I’m really enjoying both Broadchurch and The Bridge, although I must say, I much preferred Law & Order UK with the original cast.

  18. John says:

    Franklin & Bash (Rob Lowe!), Necessary Roughness, dvr Royal Pains (the rich guy subterfuge gets the fastforward treatment).

    • Mel says:

      Unfortunately Royal Pains (which started out really great) turned into a chore for me, I have 7 episodes backed up on the DVR, but will probably eventually just delete it all. Too bad.

      • That’s exactly what happened to me with Royal Pains but it was a cpl of seasons back. I noticed that I had abt 5+ episodes Tivo’d & really had no desire to watch them. Then when the next season came on & I still didn’t care so I just deleted my season pass & haven’t looked back. The sad part is I think I could start watching it again & would probably be able to catch up w/in an episode or two. It started out really promising & then it just got BORING. It’s like how many times can Hank be the MacGyver of Long Island medicine LOL Oh well, I’d rather they have more Franklin & Bash. I know some people don’t like it but I think its kitschy & am tired of all these legal dramas that are so serious. I like that it doesn’t take itself too seriously.

  19. Tahonia says:

    Broadchurch! I’m thinking everyone except Danny’s mother could be the murderer. I hope tonight helps me narrow it a bit.

  20. Ali says:

    Law & Order: UK and Broadchurch. That is my Wednesday for the next month or so.

    The premiere of Broadchurch was amazing. I’m happy to see it included in this week’s list. I’m staying far way from spoilers for this show since it has already aired in the UK.

    SO SAD!!! Franklin and Bash is not a series Finale!!!!!

  22. Seriously Franklin & Bash is already over? Man why can’t TNT order more than 10 episodes. It’s kind of making me think what’s the point… the minute we get into the season BOOM it’s over. BOO I want more F&B. I don’t want to wait until next summer for another 10 episode season. WTH!!!

  23. nsd40306 says:

    Seriously hoping to say good-bye to both Franklin & Bash and Covert Affairs… not much into stupidity, slapstick and pedophilia!!!!!!
