    • wrstlgirl says:

      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.

    • Meg says:

      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.

  22. bonesfan says:
