19 Kids and Counting: Should TLC Cancel the Series?

This happened in the past. He never admitted to rape. How many people out here have played " spin the bottle" or " truth or dare"? In teenage years people are curious. He admitted to touching. We do not know the whole complete story. This happened 12 years ago. It is possible he is a changed man. God forgives and we should forgive. Just remember we all have stuff in our lives that we did!!!

Of course teenagers are curious. But there is a big difference between consensual experimentation and indulging in sex acts with someone has not consented or isn't old enough to do so. That is reprehensible- as is the hypocrisy of concealing the behavior while spouting "family values."

Wow, what a season. The way they handle Derek's death by just moving on so quickly was upsetting, but I really thought was brilliant. It challenged the audience so much and made his absence really hit deeper to me. Even after all this time, this show still can blow me away with the innovative spins they take on the hospital drama format. Geena Davis was also amazing this season, the best I've ever seen her. The music continues to be a strong point of the show, not only do they introduce me to a lot of cool songs,but they always seem to find a song that just fits the scene perfectly. Loved being introduced to "Let the Light Come In' by Rose Cousins in this episode (when Meredith talks with Alex in the elevator, asking if he’s talked to Jo about her and the kids moving in.) I really liked how they played some covers of songs we've heard before on the show. Jonny P did a great job with John Legend's "Sun Comes Up" when they're all mingling at the part. I have heard "How To Save A Life" so much over the years, whether its this show or just on the radio that I went from loving it to kind of dreading the song, but I actually really liked the Nilu cover that plays Jo asks Alex to sell the house to Meredith and move into a loft with her.

Tanya, first of all thanks for a very good post. You remembered everything well and very clearly. I liked the points you mentioned. I did not realise Sherlock had walked back to the tunnel. I also did not realise that it was his phone he had stomped on. I thought it was the phone he said he had swiped in the room with the junkies because Oscar had either taken away his phone or made him leave it somewhere. I want to believe that Sherlock just looks disheveled, because he has not shaved and is feeling desolate. I felt that he was tormented by Oscar and now after everything, he just wanted to be by himself. Somehow I don't feel he actually took the drugs. He took the box but he knows that if he took the drugs, not only will his father cut him off, but Gregson might not let him consult with the PD. I think the writers just want us to think he took the drugs but somehow I feel he didn't. That's MHO.

I thought it was a smart choice to have almost no Derek in this first episode after his death, because it made the audience feel his absence as strongly as the characters were. It's like he's just gone and you can feel his missing presence more than if they spent this whole episode analyzing it, and there were some great moments that really, really backed this up. How about that scene when Meredith and the kids return home and then we see her laying in the bed alone? Devastating and they didn't have to do anything like having Meredith go through Derek flashbacks or anything like that. I also loved the cover of Snow Patrol's "Chasing Cars" by The Wind & The Wave that they used for this scene, it was a crazy contrast in styles between the original and the cover and it worked real well here. Aron Wright (who this show introduced me to and keeps on playing his music) really did a great job on the "In the Sun" cover at the funeral, too - it also totally lived up to the Joseph Arthur original. The funeral was maybe a little short but other than that I do think it was best that they forced us to move on, just like everyone else had to. It's still upsetting but I think if they had to kill him off, they handled it in a really impactful way that really honored his memory and did his legacy justice

And just WHERE was Jake's Girlfriend, Angela in all of this, Love the show, but that is an EPIC FAIL, They might as well say, gee, now it is just a waiting game to see how long we can stretch out Jake and Laura getting back together. I Don't Want Them Back Together, I Really Like Tony. Tony ended up being almost an afterthought in the whole big picture.

NCIS Season 12 Episode 24 Review: Neverland

NCIS knew calling Dorneget a fan favorite was loosely based. They were really shoving it down our throats.

This show has been surpisingly great - I was worried that the CW was going to pump it up with way too much romantic relationship drama (which do I love but not for this kind of show), but it hasn't been that bad and now that Iris and Eddie have finally broken up, I hope it cuts down even more, because the action parts of this show are a pure treat. I am worried that they might make too much Barry-Iris cheese now (although I loved that in the scene at Jitters when Barry assures her he'll find Eddie they used "Every Age" by Jose Gonzalez, but I digress) but as long as they keep the Iris stuff at the same level or below as they have so far, I'll be a happy camper.

I am no fan of Messing. She got on my last nerve in Will and Grace. The rest of the cast, including the actor who plays Jake, are good.

Good, thought I'm not liking how Dorneget is suddenly this magical computer wiz. I'd rather see a new character.

I love this minseries. It is so mysterious and creepy. It is a joy to see Matt Dillon on my TV screen, and he is doing an awesome job as Ethan. I am glad to hear that Juliette Lewis is in the rest of the episodes, as I was sad to see Sheriff Pope kill her. So sick the town was cheering! I am excited to see what happens next.
