    I wish Rookie Blue would go back up to 1.0+, but at least it’s stable, especially given its lead-in.

      I think it has something to do with the episodes airing earlier in Canada as many have said and that it can be streamed online.

      • Sarah says:

        Yeah, that definitely has something to do with it, IMO. I just didn’t want to sound like a broken record, completely, when I commented. LOL!

          I know that I used to watch all the episodes live for previous seasons. Since they are aired earlier in Canada I know what’s happening and the show sits on my DVR.

          A show that I would live to get renewed but probably won’t based on its ratings is Black Box. I almost gave up on it after the first couple of episodes but I’m glad I stuck with it. It’s really really good. A different side of medicine and the two leads have great chemistry. Can’t wait to see how it ends next week!!!!

            I was watching early online at first, but the site I was using tried to give me a couple viruses. Then after ep 5, Global blocking the episodes (at least on my computer). So I just gave up.

          • Sarah says:

            * started blocking

    I had to laugh at how Jason from Hells Kitchen mentioned quite a few times on camera that he will make the final 2, and lo and behold. He made small comments throughout even about getting rid of competition and sure enough he’s gone and done it. Bravo.

    Gang-Related has a great cast and decent acting but I dropped the show a couple weeks ago because I figured it’d be pulled from the air due to poor ratings. And Night Shift was didn’t keep my interest. Welcome to Sweden still has my attention though but it needs improving. And Engels had too many annoying characters. So far, summer network tv has held no hidden gems for me. Broadcast cable has been the real treasure trove this summer with Chasing Life, Finding Carter, Teen Wolf, Young & Hungry, Salem, The Fosters, Orphan Black and Continuum being or remaining keepers.

  4. Im enjoying Gang Related alot more than I expected. Thought itd be just another typical cop show, and some ways it is, but I like the casting (Emilio Rivera, SoA) and some episodes have been good. Javier’s brutal fight this episode with Miguel was awesome. Hopefully they wrap it up nice and not on a cliffhanger.

      I have really enjoyed this series. The plots have been interesting and suspenseful without abandoning a sense of realism. There are some similarities to The Shield and that may have inspired the casting of Jay Karnes. It’s also great to see Terry O’Quinn in something substantial. Ramon Rodriguez nicely underplays the pivotal role of Ryan Lopez.
