    • BATB used to be a never miss show for me, now I just DVR it and watch at my leisure. I still like it, I’m just tired of the back and forth with Cat and Vincent. One ep they are together, the next they are not. I’m tired of it.

      Comment by wrstlgirl – January 27, 2014 02:13 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Two weeks ago, there were 2 separate linked articles to the BATB episode that aired. Last week there were another 2 separate linked articles to the BATB episode that aired. They generally don’t like to keep listing the same shows week after week.
