Thank goodness for my DVR. I'll record both. If I had to watch one Live, it would probably be Revenge, only because CBS screws up Sunday night times with sports and things are anywhere from 15 - 45 minutes late. It's infuriating. I wish CBS would just give Sunday night over to live sports, sport follow-up, or repeats. Running original shows on Sunday night when you can't guarantee a standard start time is a crappy thing to do to the fans and it's why I stopped watching Cold Case.
DeeDee, if you really think Bones and Booth were 'here first', then you need some television history lessons. Before Bones and Booth there were Dave and Maddie and Laura and Remington. And long before any of them were Perry Mason and Della Street.
Chuck and Morgan!
When a show gets as much hype as Grimm did, it needs to be better than the hype. Grimm wasn't. I like the actors, but I found the pilot boring and uninteresting. I may watch a few more episodes to see if it finds its way, but right now I'm just disappointed.
I did see the Divya thing coming. She's been yawning, tired, working two jobs, and upset about her family stuff for episodes now. That leads to sleep deprivation and errors and, in her field, errors are really bad stuff. Really bad stuff = conflict, the lifeblood of television shows. I feel bad for her. She's had a really rough time and this won't help. I think she'll take it even harder since she's always so fastidious and it's not like her to make mistakes. What I didn't see coming was the General seeing and appreciating how capable Evan can be or that shock therapy no longer resembled One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.
Elanor, the idea that a show should be written based on what is trending on Twitter disgusts me. Maybe Alek is trending, but that shouldn't be the basis of what happens to character or relationship development.
Ecellent! I've loved this guy since Roar.
"I like the plot of Antonia coming back to take revenge, however, do all vampires have to pay? Couldn't she just take her revenge on that one vampire that raped her and fed from her?" No. As she said, she's not getting vengeance just for herself, but for every human that so many vampires have tortured, raped, and fed upon. That's what she talked to Tara about when she said she could see that Tara had also been raped, tortured, and fed upon. It wasn't just Antonia that suffered and it wasn't just one vampire who did it. They showed Antonia being raped and burned at the stake, but they also showed her in a cell full of frightened women who'd clearly been treated the same way. And remember, Bill may drink fake blood from a bottle now, but many flashbacks have shown even him raping, torturing, and feeding on woman throughout his lifetime.
I'd never heard of these books until the HBO series and didn't start watching until it was 3 episodes from the end. (Thank you, HBO OnDemand!) I just started book 4 today. Tyrion was my favorite character in the show and is my favorite character in the books now, too.
I think I would have been more surprised if the show did have a planned arc instead of being written episode by episode.
