    • Is Intelligence worth picking back up? I watched the pilot and it was okay – but the episodes have been piling up on my pvr. I really like the cast, so that’s my main reason for wanting to give it another chance

      • I think Intelligence is worth keeping up with. The character development is starting to happen and interesting plots. Ory and Josh have great chemistry. Just don’t “rush” the shipping business.

  • Castle. Really looking forward to tonight’s episode.

  • Almost Human needs all the live support it can get! Should be an epic ep, too. Gina Carano looks awesome.

  • Oh I’ll be watching ‘Bitten’ on Syfy. This show needs to be more on TvLine’s radar.

    Comment by Carol – February 3, 2014 05:49 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Yes, “Bitten” is getting better with every episode. And so does Laura Vandervoort. She was a bit bland in the first episode, and I questioned if she would be able to carry this show. But from what I saw in episode 3, I think she will be.

  • Dang good night for tv; Castle, Almost Human, Switched at Birth, Hollywood Game Night, Fosters, Being Human, 2 Broke Girls, Being Human. I’ll PVR Beauty and the beast, but it’s lost me this season
    .
    Lost Girl and Bitten air on the weekend here, but I’d be them tonight if I lived in the US.

  • Castle’s delay wasn’t worth the one week. The show’s writing has really gone down this year. It is almost sad to think that is a show that I used to love. In their quest to have a more romantic season, they have killed the show’s dynamic. ABC should consider changes at the end of the season. And I’d start with the showrunner Andrew Marlowe. He has clearly lost sight of the show.

  • Yes. I am saying he should be fired. No one else could do a worse job than him this season. He has taken the messing with the fans to the extreme and I am tired of his gimmicky anti climatic writing. And I know I am not the only person who feels this way. The problem is that whenever a fan gets critical another fan feels the need to toss them under the bus.

    Comment by Raines – February 3, 2014 07:32 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • Stop liking the poor quality castle fans. Demand decent stories and decent writing. Them not taking themselves seriously is getting noticed. How long before the network says enough is enough?

    Comment by Raines – February 3, 2014 07:34 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Seriously?! Not everyone agrees with you about “poor quality”…I, for one, don´t! Some episodes are better than others, that´s all.

  • Will be DVR’ing Beauty and Lost Girl. But will be watching Bitten, Being Human and Teen Wolf

    Comment by Kris – February 3, 2014 08:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • DVR How I Me Your Mother, since I need to watch last week’s. I’ll be watch Beauty and the Beast live; really hoping ratings will go up and we can save the show somehow. I’m not ready for it to be done. On that note, I have no use for Tori and hope she understands fairly soon there is no getting between Vincent and Catherine.

  • “Robin and Ted reminisce about previous relationships”

    Oh please, enough already.

    • You’ve got to pad 72 hours of story time into 24 episodes somehow.

      Comment by FatherOctavian – February 3, 2014 10:22 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Let’s give it a chance – at the very least, this episode, ‘Sunrise’, may be a nice counterpoint to season 1′s episode – “Nothing Good Happens After 2 A.M.” Maybe this time, something good will happen.

      We haven’t had a Ted-Robin scene since last May’s “Something Old”. I have a feeling this episode will turn out to be one of Season 9′s very best. Granted, the bar may be set a bit low in S9, but this episode should be quite good. At the very least, it will Robin [CS] as chance to push her character a bit harder than she’s been allowed to thus far in S9. A chance to see the ‘old Robin’ an action.

    • Hasn’t this whole series been one long reminiscence about previous relationships?

  • After being very disappointed with The Following last season, I watched the premiere of season 2 and gave up. Still incredibly stupid writing, no improvement. Great cast is squandered. I predict no season 3.

  • Almost Human, Beauty and the Beast, The Following, Castle and Intelligence (which I’ve grown to like). Glad I have a DVR

  • “10 pm Intelligence (CBS) | Gabriel and Riley search for a senator’s daughter after she is kidnapped in Mexico. Peter Coyote (Law and Order: LA) guest stars.”

    Aren’t they stretching credibility just a bit by having Peter Coyote be Marg Helgenberger’s father? Sure, the 17-year age difference makes it technically possible, but still, it’s a stretch.

  • Almost Human is the only can’t-miss tv tonight for me…
