  1. Happy about all of those pickups–I’m a huge fan of Childrens Hospital and Breaking Bad and find Awkward. amusing.
    So many great TV-on-DVD picks this week. I am running out of room in my house–like Amrie, I buy everything! I wish The Defenders had done better–was such an underrated show.
    I really enjoyed both Once Upon a Time and Pan Am, so am looking forward to them. Was underwhelmed with the new Tim Allen show–felt like a million other shows, and Nancy Travis felt like she was playing her same Bill Engvall Show character. I thought the same exact thing as Jason while watching Man Up, the headsets totally reminded me of Traffic Light. I really liked Apt 23, except for Krysten Ritter (I’ve never been a fan of her–was glad when she was “removed” from Breaking Bad). Dawson and the neighbor were hilarious, so I will definitely watch more.
    Really liked Suburgatory (Cheryl Hines was great!), and that will make for a very solid Wed ABC Comedy block. I agree with you guys–wasn’t a constant laugh riot, but really enjoyed it. However, wasn’t a fan of Revenge–felt like an ABCF or CW show, and certainly doesn’t fit with the comedy block. I really wish that had put GCB here–that would have been a great fit, and was a great pilot.
    Charlie’s Angels was horrible, such bad acting, poor writing and casting. It was like Hawaii 5-0 again–where they used “We’re Angels” instead of “We’re 5-0” like everyone would know what that means!
    Looking forward to Doctor Who’s return and interested in tonight’s premiere of Death Valley–looks like it could be hilarious.
    Amrie, agree with most of your opinions on the Reality shows–except for the Seabirds–not a fan (I still don’t understand why anyone would voluntarily choose to be Vegan! Can you even have FroYo without milk?!) I’m rooting for one of Hodge Podge, The Lime Truck or Karilla. I agree with Rae, so happy Damian was a winner of the The Glee Project–out of the final 4 I really wanted him to win. I was really disappointed when they first announced Samuel as the winner (who I liked the least). I think even if they hadn’t announced all of them as winners, I think we still would have seen many of these contestants on Glee anyway–and I suspect others will show up as well (*cough* Cameron *cough*).
    Staci on Flipping Out is INSANE! How could anyone hate Jenni?! I think she probably is jealous of Jenni and is doing a lot of it just for the camera, to get attention and ensure air time.
