    I’m really enjoying American Gothic. It is pretty twisted. Every week a new suspect, but all related to this whacky family. Hope we get a season 2 or a satisfying conclusion to season 1.

    What’s the chances for season 3 of Wayward Pines? Love that show

  3. Was a bit disappointed at the bait & switch on Night Shift when the promos inferred that Topher was seriously injured at the fireworks explosion but in the actual show he wasn’t.

    Love Night Shift! I think this season the show is tighter and the cast has hit its stride! Fingers crossed it gets a renewal !

    Wayward Pines is an excellent excellent, did I say excellent? show! I wasn’t sure at first with season 2, but it has turned out to continue to be an excellent excellent well-written show. I will miss Hope Davis. Classic actress!
