  • Anyone else get oddly sad by how hard Ausiello feels he has to try? It’s off putting. Dude, quit looking for people to think you’re cool. You’re too mature to be giving a ****. The misplaced pomposity on this website is a major reason why I rarely come here for my television news anymore.

    • I have no problems at all with Mr. Ausiello nor any of their journalists, although Mr. Mitovich can be a bit abrasive.

    • “Alex”, the wonderful Gloria Votsis, appeared in S4 White Collar episode 8. She absolutely has wonderful chemistry with Matt Bomer.. so check out that episode, it is great.. Also S5 is in a new direction, you may want to check it out. No more daddy issues as you call it. You may like this new season.

  • Greys live. DVR Sean, Scandal, Covert Affairs. Mentioned about Alex’s dad on tonight’s Greys and yet that’s the story that gets the least buzz right now. No mention of Owen’s new girlfriend making an appearance at the hospital or the fact that apparently, Arizona hooked up with intern Leah. THAT is the story that had fans going crazy on Twitter last night. It’s all in the sneak peaks…

  • Wait, no mention of the fact that Lisa Kudrow makes her debut on Scandal tonight? Wow, where’s the love? That may just make watch live.

    Comment by Babygate – October 24, 2013 12:29 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Never could stand her or David Schwimmer, so no.
    White Collar
