    Last Week Tonight, Mad Men, Resurrection, Cosmos, Silicon Valley and Veep.

    Lost interest in Believe, Crisis and Turn.

  2. Apples says:

    Game of Thrones. Wonder what the fallout will be from the rape.

    • Mike says:

      not a rape.

      • Apples says:

        Looked like rape to me (I’ve read what the director said, still rape).

      • bluefairy says:

        It wasn’t supposed to be a rape, but unfortunately that’s how they portrayed it on the show. It sucks because they basically ruined Jaime’s character and they’re turning Cersei into a victim, which she doesn’t deserve. They obviously did it for the ratings and sadly it worked, but story-wise it makes no sense at all. Now I wonder how they’ll get Jaime back on the redemption path.

  3. Isobel says:

    GoT and Resurrection

  4. CourtTV says:

    When I initially commented I clicked the “Notify me when new comments are added” checkbox and
    now each time a comment is added I get four emails with the sawme comment.
    Is there any way you can remove me from that service?
    Thanks!

    • rubytu says:

      sometimes you might have to post with a fake email address to keep it from being totally filled with comments from this site. I know I do (usually)

  7. bluefairy says:

    *Another* body in Colin Sweeney’s house? :))) This is getting hilarious, that guy is like a dead people magnet :)))

    • Bryce says:

      That’s what I was thinking! He really is such a great character. Hopefully there’s no dead dog this time too.

  8. Gwen says:

    OUAT, Good wife, Drop Dead Diva

  9. steven says:

    I guess OUAT will still air against an awards show.

  10. Lexy says:

    OUaT and Revenge cause I want to be there when they jump the shark :P
    Will watch most of these afterwards anyway, Sunday is when most of the shows I watch air.

    • e says:

      unfortunately i think OUAT has already jumped shark, even though i am still tuning in.

      i am currently rewatching OUAT on netflix for some background noise while i work this sunday, and i am at season 2 episode 11… i am kind of speechless to see how incredibly pointless and unmemorable the story had gotten in season two, because most everything that was introduced around that point is irrelevant now in the present story.

      one thing of note is that captain hook was a TERRIBLE terrible person… so the fact that they keep trying to make HIM happen, trying to make him a worthy partner for emma having rewatched his introduction… it’s laughable. the intro of bae/neil (and he’s only appeared twice at this point in season two) was so much more charming and believable, but we know how that ended up.

      this show had such great potential, and i am so disappointed to see where it’s landed now. i am enjoying rebecca mader as the wicked witch, but i fear they are too far gone to reboot the show with the spark it had in season 1.

      • Lexy says:

        Probably, with Pan being Rumple’s dad and all.
        I agree with you, Hook is absolutely horrible and if it weren’t for people drooling over his good(?) looks, he would be gone by now. It’s a joke of a character and I can’t stand seeing him and Emma together, he should’ve stayed just a villain. Neil was a decent character, but, yeah… They probably killed him off to make Hook fans happy because it certainly was not to “tell an emotional story”.
        Rebecca Mader is doing a fine job, but I’m willing to bet it will have a lousy ending. I wanted to see Wicked vs Evil, so far I’m seeing HOOK HOOK HOOK and Emma vs people’s common sense everywhere. Rumple’s role has been completely redundant in season 3B.
        I only enjoyed a few scenes that didn’t have the Wicked Witch so far and that’s Regina teaching Emma magic and Regina and Snow bonding. Henry also seems irrelevant, needless to mention Belle, whose job can be done by an extra. I mean, I get that Emma is the main one, but still…. So many opportunities wasted.
        Sorry for the long rant.

  17. Chaosrainz says:

    I hate Sundays! Thank goodness for DVRs and on demand.
    Call the Midwife, Mr. Selfridge, Bletchley Circle, GoT, TURN, Salem, Long Island Medium, Signed/Sealed/Delivered on Hallmark, Those Who Kill on LMN…it takes me till Wednesday to get caught up!

  18. HAP says:

    If there is anything good I can say about Time Warner Cable, it’s that they carry both the Eastern and Western feeds of HBO and Showtime. So, beginning at 7, I can catch Silicon Valley, Veep, Nurse Jackie and Californication, all in a row, and then catch The Good Wife and The Mentalist thereafter at their regular times on CBS. No DVR necessary.

  19. Pat says:

    I will be watching OUAT with great anticipation and I will DVR Resurrection and Salem.

  20. Jana says:

    Cosmos: A SpaceTime Odyssey

    I am looking forward to John Oliver’s show tonight. He did a terrific job of filling in for Jon Stewart last year.

    Message to HBO! Get on-board! You’ve got an HBO GO app on my iPad; you’ve got another HBO GO app on my AppleTV. And you want me to have a cable TV subscription??? What’s wrong with this picture?

    My TV cable bill used to be about $60/mo including HBO and 463 sports channels. Surely, you’ll opt for 10% free and clear—say $6/mo? No? Well, I won’t go to 15%, but for full access (about 6M of us out there), I’ll throw in iTunes 30%, say, $8.57/mo, and we’ll call it even! Have we got a deal?
