    For any people watching between do they remember the show The Tribe that was on Canada from the late 90 to early 2000’s.

    • Michelle says:

      The New Zealand show? Used to love watching it & that’s what i thought of when i heard about Between too.

    • Simon Jester says:

      It’s also similar to the Showtime TV series JEREMIAH, whose opening premise was a plague that killed everyone over the age of 13.

  2. Mr. Tran K says:

    The Price is Right should end sometime in the near future. Drew Carey is still a complete train wreck to everybody who’s watching and wasting people’s time and continues to be a poor man’s Bob Barker with no Daytime Emmy love. The models still don’t have brains and beauty and the show is still not funny. My advice is that Stan Blits should pick the smart contestants not the dumb ones who are acting like zombies from The Walking Dead.

  3. Jared says:

    I didn’t realize PLL was starting so soon.

  4. Lizo says:

    Yay Switched at Birth!!!! Also, I’m optimistic about Between.

  5. Belle says:

    Can’t wait for April and Leo to get married on Chasing Life.

  6. dude says:

    Between is a Canadian show yet Netflix made the trailer unavailable to Canada. Dafuq Netflix?

  7. Joey Padron says:

    happy Chasing Life’s new season starts on my birthday!

  8. DavidSask says:

    The Adult Swim show has been done to death premise wise so why do again? ABC Family stick with scripted no awful reality no one will tune in for!

    • Marie says:

      It immediately reminded me of his short-lived ABC sitcom “Bob Patterson.” Why would he take another chance on the inept mental health worker?

  9. Joey says:

    Finally, a Netflix show I have utterly no interest in.

  10. jeanette says:

    So this means Chasing Life is currently showing on TV? Also at what time does it come out?
