OK, looks like a new format is going up. Re the Kirklands, of course if any of the list of 7 could be the real RJ it would have to be a Kirkland twin. what else explains the Lennon episode? The shoe needs an RJ who remains mysterious, on whom all the characteristics of RJ can be laid because of his ephemeral nature. He IS the symbol of Death as well as presenting as a real person, so the Kirkland twin with the abusive childhood and all kinds of connections we can easily explain, would fall into place. Yet the show seems determined not to give us that credible wrapup and leave us with the McC. farce. I keep hoping S7 will fix this but probably not.

Covert Affairs Review: Not an Island

Story is slow, inconsistent; crazy sudden relationship shifting makes no sense, glamour and charm of early seasons are gone - it's like a different show but one without a coherent base. Mcquaid is not a very interesting character for some reason. The fall started with the weird story line in season 4. Either bring back the spirit of the first 3 seasons or cancel it.Yawn.

This site is getting weird. Christine: are the techies messing with this again just when it was working well? Ani, I would like to add some comments about the Kirkland thing but I'll see if this site stays operational first.

Well I was holding out hope for Revolution to get picked up by syfy or some other network. At least, some of my favorite stars are getting picked up by one of my other favorite shows, OUAT! Now, we just need to figure out a role for David Lyons!

Perception Review: The Devil You Know

Kate and Donny's wedding problems make no sense at all. The purpose of an annulment is to declare the marriage wasn't valid. According to the Catholic Church, if a wedding isn't annulled then it is valid. So why would they have to declare their marriage invalid to get married again? They are already married in the eyes of the Church. If they want to have a public ceremony they could have a recommitment ceremony without all drama. It is an annoying distraction to an otherwise good show.

Kate and Donnie wanted to have a wedding ceremony where they were actually married. A recommitment ceremony of blessing of the marriage ceremony would not have affected their status under the law - i.e., after that ceremony, they each would still have been single. I think the point was that they didn't want to have a recommitment ceremony and then have to once again have a marriage ceremony with the justice of the peace. They just wanted to have one big ceremony with everyone attending after which they were married both under law and in the eyes of God and the Church.

Royal Pains Review: Lawson And...

The Emma storyline is tiresome. Asking a man who's "yakking" up blood to swallow not one -- but two! -- nitrile gloves far exceeds the boundaries of my imagination. Paige & "Bergere" are caricatures of themselves, as is Ray in his paisley silk lounging robe digging into a hearty breakfast after eating gloves. Right now my favorite thing about Royal Pains is the scenery!

Royal Pains Review: Lawson And...

I'm with the reviewer on having switched sides on Emma. Shaming the guys for checking on her ensures she can operate alone and she's just all too smug. Maybe Ray's the new Boris as far as a patron for the business. Wouldn't be the first time a business took dirty money to operate. But this is Royal Pains where good wins out over bad. A mess, for sure. http://tvruckus.com/2014/07/09...

Beauty and the Beast Review: Gabe Gets a Cue!

It was a good finale. It was a sweet, romantic ending. I am so glad it wasn't a cliffhanger like last season. I did not like most of season 2 for various reasons but it seems like the showrunner did learn a thing or two about what the show is about and what makes the small but loyal and I mean loyal fans happy. My wish for season 3 is to bring back that epic passion we felt and saw in Season 1. I don't feel that ever came back, even after they were back together. We know they love each other; they always did. I think they could have done the same thing this season without all the horrendous things they both did because really in the end, they came full circle back to who they were in season 1, so many fans were driven away for nothing. But all water under the bridge-those loyal fans who stayed were rewarded and I am thankful for that. So much talent and chemistry with the Fab 4. I loved Sendhil as the bad guy in season 1 but could not stomach the Gabefest in Season 2-that was way too unrealistic and having Cat fall in love with him, which the writer' seem to want us to know on several occasions even after they broke up! Glad Gabe is gone, tho will miss Sendhil, as his story just needed to end. I am dissapointed that Sherri and Jennifer are moved to consultants, though I was not too impressed with some of their material this year. But VINCAT are back and next year according to the Showrunner, the focus will be more on the romance. That was what season 1 was all about and it did work! We had twice the viewers in season 1 as season 2, so lets get back to it and I bet we can get more viewers. I know the Beasties will do their part to bring more in and support the show and advertisers like we always have. It's been a real ride this season. I am sad it is over but I am glad it is over. I feel relieved as it has stressed me out a lot this season so I will have lots of time to re-watch Season1-some of Season 2 and gear up for a romantic season 3!
