Yaaaaay!  new thread!

Oh, and I forgot, when the girl who kissed Manny wanted to see his face
and then turning on the light and screaming, LOL!

Wonder if it's a boy or a girl, did they say?

I don't think they mentioned whether or not the baby was a boy or girl.  That episode was hysterical, we were talking about it at lunch today.  Poor Lily just got so beat up!  Rice in the eye, a neckbrace from a child's car "crash" and getting tossed into the pool, it was too funny!

Oh yes they said it was a boy!!  FUNNY episode, but then they are all so funny!

Watch Idol last night to see the battle of the Diva's, all I can say is poor Randy and poor Keith. 



There are those who look at things the way they are, and ask why... I dream of things that never were, and ask why not?

I wish someone else was watching American Horror Story.  What a fabulously twisted season!

Hey Linda,
even tho you forgot to remind me about POI tonight, I tried to watch... and left it after about 10 minutes. White Collar is on and I just find it easier to get into even though I've missed a couple years (I think.)

At 8, the next to last episode of Last Resort was on. I'm really sorry it has been cancelled.

Sorry, Sherry, I was going to, but I got home from work late.
It won't be on here for another couple of hours, and then ELEMENTARY after that.

Katherine surprised me. What she said to Vincent, about people like her being able to kill people like him, got me to wondering whether she is more than an ADA.

I liked Laura, too. At least her husband didn't bump her off.  ::)  And--I know this is so gay of me  ;D --I loved her wardrobe!  ;D

I get a kick out of Yvonne, too--the secretary (?) in the sheriff's office.

He's a cute boy, no doubt about it.

I like the way the story lines are going. I am curious to see if Laura is going to be in future episodes.
What she said to Vincent was true. I can't figure out if he really loved her.

I had forgotten about Yvonne.

I've left Elementary permanently, except I'll probably watch when Scandal is showing reruns. But Scandal is getting better and better, especially as most of the characters have actually settled into his/her storyline and seem plausible. Had a real WOW! moment last night... and those are what make tv worth watching!

Yeah, I know. ...

In the Elementary episode, it was good to see Roger Rees, but, oi,  he isn't aging well.  ::)

(Every Christmas "I see him 30 years ago," when I watch the George C. Scott A Christmas Carol. Roger Rees  played Scrooge's nephew Fred.)

At least it was the episode with the first mention of "Irene."

I like the way the [Vegas] story lines are going. I am curious to see if Laura is going to be in future episodes.
What she said to Vincent was true. I can't figure out if he really loved her.

I don't know. I can't either. Vincent is a very complicated character. Maybe more complicated than Ralph.

According to TV Guide (which might not be up to date in its listing), next week's episode is a rerun, the one that introduced Laura.

I'm still very worried about Jack. I would not want to see Jason O'Mara eliminated from the show. But, who knows, maybe that was the plan all along.

If he goes, so do I.
On the other hand, I'd cheerfully pack Dillon's bags.

You mean Dixon? So would I--to move him to my place.  >:D
