Oh gosh PPK. Don't watch episode four of Brooklyn 99. Well, you can if you want but I know you'll regret it. There's... a confusing amount of fat jokes in it. And not in any remotely clever or useful way.


I thought at first that they were going to let his characters make the fat jokes and then undercut him somehow, but they didn't. I like Brooklyn 99 and it makes me laugh at a lot of moments, but it seems to be a vehicle just for Andy Samberg's jokes. Seems like a loss considering there are so many other funny people on that show, but they just keep honing in on him.

I love Trophy Wife, but the ratings are bad. That's the only new show that i'm watching that I don't think is going to make it to a full season.

The URL tells the whole story. I'm waiting for news that they're going to shitcan Sleepy Hollow to make more room for more Seth Macfarlane "comedies".

I watched the first three Sleepy Hollow episodes and thought it was really really bad. Maybe I just need to try more.

But guys, GRIMM is back <3

I read the description of the first Sleepy Hollow ep on Hulu and was really turned off by it. Icabod Crane wakes up in present day to fight crime or something? Is it really worth me giving it a chance? It's getting to be bad weather over here and dark early thanks to daylight savings time, so I need some TV.

It's way more bonkers than that, and I would take the time to fill you in, but it's better that you watch it for yourself. I will clear up that he does not fight crime, but his partner is a cop, and they fight demons.

I like Sleepy Hallow, but a little less each week.

Today I quit Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.

And yes, hurray for Grimm (even if they did spend the first 1/4 of the episode going over what happened in the last 5 minutes of the season finale)!

To me the strength of Sleepy Hollow lies in the friendship between Ichabod and Abbie and the fact that the female lead is an awesome black woman, which is still pretty rare in television (or any media for that matter). And I like that the show doesn't take itself too seriously. It kind of reminds me of Supernatural but with diversity.

To be fair, I actually needed about the first season of Grimm to really start loving that show, so who knows.

yes, this is the ep. that lost me too. i thought the show will be about some quirky chicks being rad on their own....not another 'poor girls, how sad'...

This week, Dads got a Full-Season Pick-Up, just like Brooklyn Nine-Nine last week.
And they have "The Mindy Project" down as a likely cancellation, which makes me sad. TMP isn't perfect, but at least its not the usual mean-spirited, sexist garbage that passes for humor (::cough:: Seth McFarlane::cough::)

I watched all the episodes of the show last night, so I guess I must have liked it. It was definitely funnier than I was expecting and the kids were great. I got used to the new oldest daughter pretty fast. Marcia Gay Harden's character is annoying, but I like everyone else. Plus, they mentioned cashew cheese!

I think I finally got my tv watching in order for this season.

Grimm - Hulu
Sleepy Hollow - Hulu
Dracula - Hulu
The Walking Dead - Amazon Prime
The Goldbergs - Hulu
The Mindy Project - Hulu
HIMYM - TV
2 Broke Girls - TV
Big Bang Theory - TV
Mom - TV
Mike and Molly - TV
Sean Saves the World - TV but I keep missing it, so I have to catch up on Hulu
Dads - TV but again I keep missing it, have to catch up on Hulu
Super Fun Night - Hulu
Awkward - Amazon Prime when it's available
Parenthood - Netlix for now, I just started watching it so I'm catching up on past seasons

I think that is everything I'm trying to keep up on other than Hulu and Netflix specific shows that aren't in current seasons right now.

The Mindy Project's ratings continue to sink. Sad face. http://www.tvwatchus.com/2013/11/10/fox ... cancelled/

I really don't get how funny shows like Community and Cougartown don't do well. And the networks seem to have worked really hard to kill Community and Cougar town. Sad face.

I love Reign. Love love love it. I have feels about this week's episode and no one to talk to about it.

Still love Reign. Francis was the young Dumbledore in deathly hallows part 1. http://harrypotter.wikia.com/wiki/Albus_Dumbledore

also, i like tomorrow people even though i know it's shiitake and rips off a few different things.

I think my favorite show of the season is actually Nashville--I'm shocked it's not Parks and Rec, but it's just not a strong season. Must suck to write, though, when you're not sure if you're getting 13 or 22 eps, and if you don't know if you have to wrap the series or not.

Hang in there appifanie! I actually love Reign too, but haven't had a chance to watch the 11/21 episode yet, so I'll report back once I do!

Also, I think I must be the only person watching the CBS comedy Mom. For the first three episodes I kept telling myself I'd just watch one more before giving up, and then I became attached. I love Anna Faris and Allison Janney together.

I watched the pilot of Reign, but I couldn't get over the fact that the dauphin was attractive and charming, and that the costumes looked more like Coachella than Elizabethan England. Would you say it got better after the pilot?

I think it's better in general than the pilot was. Yes, it sort of reeks of CW teen drama a bit and it's not historically accurate AT ALL, but I watch purely for the entertainment value, I guess. The storylines are intriguing enough as they develop to keep me watching.

Hmm, maybe I should give it another shot!
