    Don’t know whether or not Mysteries of Laura and Code Black are going to survive for another season respectively.

    And of course I like Second Chance. Curious to see how the relationship between Ray and his son works out. And what da hell happened to Chicago PD?

    Good for Arrow ticking up!

    GREAT news for Arrow. The Green Arrow season has been non stop. Love the ups and downs, action and drama. That same drama that they got knocked on, that’s in EVERY show.

  5. Lizzie says:

    Great news for Arrow, even if the episode wasn’t the best. Hopefully it will pick up next week.

  6. John NYC says:

    Definitely (IMHO) a superior episode. Hope they keep it up (and I was sort of dreading the angsty potential) but it was well played out.

  7. Fosho says:

    Arrow had been so great this season. I love seeing for focus on Oliver, Felicity and Diggle. It’s been so much fun so far.

  8. MiaB says:

    I still love black-ish, but it’s lost a little of its edge since Deon Cole left.

  9. Boiler says:

    Looks to me ABC’s mid season breaks are bombing. I love Nashville but sort of sad if American Crime can’t beat it. It is too bad as I like not having more reruns on the regular shows. Nice for 2 Broke Girls also.

    That’s because everyone wanted to see Felicity but they lessened her screen time (don’t even know why) she knocked it out of the park even in a hospital bed. For the lesser to get some time. It’s funny they needed all four of them to keep going in the field at the same time, in the same house. Yet Oliver and Thea together can’t take down Anarky. The only ones that consistently get high praise and great reviews are Amell, Rickards, Holland and Ramsey. They never build on that and I think it’s time they should.

    Good for Arrow sorry that The Middle didn’t do better. I wonder how long FOX will hang on to Second Chance before they decide to bring Empire back early CBS seemed to have a steady night

    Wow how refreshing to visit a board were people aren’t bashing the writers and claiming they won’t watch anymore because they’re mad or crazy that a story line didn’t work out the way they wanted it. Well she’s still alive so I guess there’s nothing to complain about.

  13. Josh says:

    It’s a crime that no one is watching American Crime.

    So happy that code black is ticking up . I have my fingers crossed for this show!
