    love all of those shows except twisted. can’t wait to have PLL, Switched and the Fosters back :) :) :)

    • wrstlgirl says:

      I’m shamefully addicted to Twisted. I can’t help it LOL Never watched PLL but I’m going to check out Ravenswood. And loved The Fosters.

      • Elyse says:

        i watched the first episode of Twisted and i just couldn’t get into it. i am one of those girls who is annoyingly addicted to PLL though so i’m pretty excited about Ravenswood. i hope its good!

        • wrstlgirl says:

          Well I always give shows at least 2-3 episodes before I write it off. If I didn’t do that I wouldn’t be watching Chicago Fire and that’s one of my favorite shows, but the pilot sucked :-) Tonight I’ll be watching the third ep of WOEE and if it doesn’t grab me then I’m out. So far it’s just not my thing and there’s to much really great television to choose from. Same issue with Marvels, not sure I’m gonna hang there either. I was told that you didn’t have to watch PLL to watch Ravenswood so I hope that’s true. The previews look good.

          • Elyse says:

            I’ve found myself being really harsh on shows lately. I think I just watch so many already that I don’t always give them the 2-3 episodes to try and win me over! I did give Marvels 3 episodes to win me over and it didn’t happen so I had to cut it from my line up! biggest disappointment of the fall season for sure.

I watched sab before and got into for a while then i just kinda lost interest its too complicated now way too much drama

  11. Rosemarie says:

  17. chris says:

    Twisted is amazing is season 2 out yet? Or is 1b like the continuence of season 1?

  18. Shannon says:

    Just watched episode and surprisingly I liked it and think all leads are well casted. I am wondering why Danny killed his aunt to protect Jo and such and please tell me it is not because she is his sister because that would just be horrible and not a real good read to commit murder at ten or eleven and I hope they come up with something more original. I am rooting for No and Danny romance because he also goes to her for everything and can speak openly and Jo has been there for him through everything. I think the lady investigator is involved in Regina’s murder and I am hoping Danny didn’t kill her because again not original and such. I also like how the writers are portraying Danny as vague in some areas because you don’t know if he is a sociopath or not. It also goes to show how cases can be mishandled if someone focuses on someone too early or prejudice or other items that make them miss things or evidence that may point them in a different direction. What info did his aunt have that would destroy d Danny’s family? I don’t think Regina was having an affair with Danny’s dad because it would make her argument with the woman in the car seem pointless. Plus the apt seemed like a front and the guy didn’t seem to see anyone go in there before. Is Jo’s mom having an affair with Danny’s dad? I hope not but maybe people planned things and I don’t think KAren is a complete Angel but she is out of the loop on some stuff. She wouldn’t have to blackmail her boss to get money to run away from the police with her son. Jo’s dad should think this new evidence is convenient and suspicious especially being found in the lake where the necklace was thrown in. Does KAren love her son or feel guilty because she always desired a girl and loved Jo? Interesting show especially for the channel it is on.

  19. Shannon says:

    Funny how No is often left out and when something is needed or help they go back to her. That is not very good friends and such. I wonder if we will get new information on what Danny did in juvenile detention and how his life was like in there. I am surprised they aren’t making Danny see a therapist or saw one while in juvenile detention. I wonder if vikram had a hand in making sure the house couldn’t be sold and maybe there is more to the house than meets the eye. I like that Karen is smart because she figured out her boss’s scam. I am hoping for a jo and Danny romance but not holding my breath when he basically stated he was in love with lacey and couldn’t get involved with her. Funny how Danny doesn’t want to hurt Jo but keeps hurting anyway.
