  • The TB summary sounds like from a daily soap….seriously introducing Warlow was a mistake TPTB

    • I don’t think so at all – I’ve loved the idea of Warlow, however having a new character and keeping him chained up to a gravestone for half the season – probably not the best idea! They just need to do more with him.

      • I agree I like Warlow and wanted to see more of him. The season started so promising but the last few episodes were boring. I still love the show

      • Re: True Blood
        If we didn’t have Warlow, Eric and Bill would not be in the light. I can’t say that I have fallen into any attachment to the Warlow/Ben character, so I cant imagine him staying around for long. Sookie seems so unhappy and lost.

    • I feel like those are on the list of 10 every Sunday. Glad to see Crossing Lines and Ray Donovan make the “cut” this week, TVline!

      • The weird thing is that I think during the regular television season they list pretty much everything

        • No they don’t. There are these same types of comments all year round.

  • I really hope more people start to watch Copper. It is just a fantastic show. A mix of historical drama and contemporary angst. I hope BBC America sees fit to give it a season 3, because it is really hitting its stride now.

    • Watched the whole first season, but never felt it was more than average. In terms of 19th century dramas, I think RIPPER STREET does a far superior job.

      • After watching the first season of “Copper” I thought I may not watch the second, I am so glad that I did as it is IMO much better.

      • Copper has really come into its own this season. Even edgier and more complex than the first season. Last week’s ep slayed me. The characters are all so 3D, jaded and imperfect. There is such a fine line between the ‘good’ guys and the ‘bad’ guys. And, after last week’s ep, I think the lead is going to go down a dark and dangerous spiral more than he already has so far. It has quickly become must see tv for me, and I TIVO Newsroom and Devious Maids so that I can watch Copper ‘live’. I really recommend giving it a 2nd chance. Hopefully TPTB will give it a Season 3 as well.

      • Ripper Street is absolutely fabulous. I do prefer it to Copper. More nuanced and its characters are so much more compelling. And it has Matthew MacFayden who is a truly remarkable actor.

        • They are both good shows, orphan black is a good one 2. Im keeping my eye on BBC

          Comment by Jacob – August 18, 2013 11:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • l love both Copper and Ripper Street, but somehow Copper feels more visceral and more immediate. I would find it very difficult to give up either of them, and I will be very disappointed if it doesn’t get another season.

    • I agree with you I really liked Copper and it seemed the season is too short. I like more please!!

      Comment by Lois H. – August 18, 2013 07:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I really like Copper too and have watched both seasons. Accents sometimes a little hard to understand, but hope it gets a third season.

    • I bought Ripper and saw the ad for Copper. I absolutely love both shows!! I don’t get BBC so have to wait for them to be released.

    • Broadchurch airs Wednesdays at 10 on BBC America. It’s not on Sundays.

      • It’s on on Sundays on Showcase. Episode five shows tonight.

  • First: the shows mentioned are supplemental choices. They don’t list every show on Sunday. It’s a primer.

    Is it a two person eviction again on BB?

  • Sunday is always a day I decide at the last minute what to watch live and what to watch within a day or two on line or on demand. Here is my must see list:

    The Lady Vanishes (New Masterpiece Theater version of the classic)
    Crossing Lines
    True Blood
    Unforgettable
    Low Winter Sun
    Copper

  • I’m sorry, but it is crime against nature to mention Big Brother in the same Sentence as Breaking Bad.

    What? I like a little fluff after a gut-wrenching hour of drama.

  • How is Unforgettable and Whoduunit appointment viewing for anyone? Who is the viewer of Crossing Lines? I gave up on Copper last year, was that a mistake? I watch all the other major shows outside of this minus Newsroom and Chopped.

        Do we know if/when it will be renewed?

        • I watch Crossing Lines and love this show! So wasted on NBC which did nothing to help promote the show at all! I would like to think it will be renewed but my hopes are low, knowing NBC… :(

    • David – would def recommend giving Copper another chance. It is so good this season for reasons listed in above comments.

  • Big Brother-if only for when Amanda loses HoH and goes into the storage room to cry behind a garbage bin. Cue the goofy music.

  • No Ray Donovan or Unforgettable for me, thanks to the CBS- TWC kerfuffle’

  • Unforgettable and Secret Millionaire for me.

    Comment by Justin – August 18, 2013 02:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Breaking Bad
    Crossing Lines
    Unforgettable
    The Lady Vanishes

    I am hoping that poeple find and appreciate Crossing Lines. It is so much better than the similar Graceland for me.

    Eager to see what they’ve done with The Lady Vanishes. I’ve seen the original Hitchcock film several times. I rarely like remakes, but once in a while they surprise me. Since this is Masterpiece Mystery, I hope this will be one of those times.

  • Warlow is one more character that is not needed. Get rid of Alcide,too. I like the idea of getting back to the core story. There are just too many characters. Get rid of the vamp who is all over Jason. The only new character I like is James.
