Why did Broadchurch need to be remade? As somebody from outside of America - we definitely notice how many TV shows don't air in America from the original countries because we're hearing about how they'll get remade and they're almost never as good as the original. It's as if networks over there can't fathom that everyday Americans would want to watch stories based in other countries. It's actually a little confronting when you realise how little everyday American's know about the world and the countries and cultures within it. Simple stuff... where countries are generally located, basic city names, how hemispheres work, cultural similarities and differences. Entertainment definitely supports broadening this knowledge. Anyway, I personally loved Broadchurch and although Gracepoint was a great opportunity for David Tennant - it just felt pointless.

One of the things we're proud about at TV Fanatic is we're a site for fanatics. We are fanatics ourselves. Millions of people enjoy procedural television and we're not going to denounce someone's right to nominate THEIR favorite show of the year. Thankfully there is television for everyone to enjoy.

It's gotten better than S1 but now feels overstuffed. I can't remember half the names.

I wonder if the writers have totally forgotten that Stefan is actually one of the leads and have stopped writing for him. When you forget about a lead what grade do you expect?

I wonder that also. ...even Damon said in season5e4, now tell me you found bonnie because I have a hungry vampire who forgot that he is the Hero of the story.....

Just sharing something cute here. At my family's Xmas gathering one of the little kids, 18 months old - was a cute curly haired blond boy. He was dressed in a vest and pants with a shirt open at the neck. Almost the exact image of what a baby Patrick Jane would look like, hair, eyes and all. (The parents don't watch TM so this was not planned.) Two other relatives at the party are TM fans and they noticed this resemblance too. It was like seeing a tiny little Mentalist running around. Way too cute!!

Funnily enough, Lisbon did not seem particularly distressed about Jane saying they should think about something else to do "for the rest of our lives." In fact, she was curious enough to calmly ask him what he wanted them to do. When his ideas were so nebulous (he only want to get the seeds planted, I think), she said LE was who she is. It's just the beginning of this conversation and it is a huge decision for both of them, but I thought it bode very well that they could talk about such an important subject without it turning into a contentious issue right then and there. Instead, she rubbed his arm gently before she left and told him she'd be back in the morning to check on him. I just loved the simple, straightforward commitment they both showed to each other, especially under Jane's stated assumption that they would be together for the rest of their lives. Foreshadowing, for sure, but it really made me happy how his words gave her no surprise at all, like it did me lol. They'll find their way, and together. It's a great thing to think about.

I thought it was an excellent episode. Vega annoys me. She is so pushy. I loved psychic Lisbon.

I loved Gracepoint, I have yet to understand why so many people were disappointed with it. I saw Broadchurch, and in my opinion, they were very similar, acting, scripts etc.
