My one fear is not that this is how it really works in politics. My fear is that this has been watered down compared to how it's really done.
DH and I just finished the last episode of the most recent season. We really dragged it out

Love the writing and acting, but I don't even want to think about how realistic it might be

My favorite show is Andy Griffith. I watch a few episodes every day.

My Husband and I also enjoy Big Bang Theory, Mom, Mike and Molly, Crowded and the Carmichael Show. We also watch Botched, Atlanta Plastic and Chrisley Knows Best.

I too like Big Bang, Mike and Molly. But I am so hooked on the three NatGeo channels. If there is nothing on that interests me, I always find something from them.

I have such a bad habit of putting on a show, then sit down at the computer or get busy doing something else, and don't even notice that Pirate changed the channel. Sure enough, about an hour or two, I get upset with him for changing the channel and I m no longer watching what I put on. He tells me to look at the clock. Dang, it has been a couple of hours since I put on that show that I just HAD to see. I do this every day.

Any Hell's Kitchen watchers? I am hoping Kristin wins. The other lady seems to have a bad attitude all the time.

After the disgusting "humor" of Melissa McCarthy in the movie "Bridesmaids" I'll never watch her in anything she does again. Just me.

Used to watch it. Now I think that foul mouth Brit needs to be tuned off the air. The show's scripted like all of the other supposed reality shows are.

Liker SherryCarl here, I like the Andy Griffith show. Watch a few episodes every day.
My favorite episode is Season 4 Episode 5 Brisco Declares For Aunt Bee.
Love how she keeps whapping him with a wooden spoon.

We're just half-way through Season One. Please tell me the pace picks up! It seems like half of every episode is rehashing what has gone on before. To us, the style is slow and plodding. It's getting to the point where we just wish they'd all die. At least the funerals would be more fun, if they were like Himself's family in PA!

Castle ~ Spoiler Alert

I don't know about the rest of you that have been following this series, but I was really glad to see that Kate and Richard are starting to get their groove back as a couple. Then, *bam* last week I see an article online that said Kate and Lanie will not be returning next year. In fact, the entire show still has not been renewed for next year. Don't know how much of a show it would be if one-half of the main characters are gone anyway. I sure hope they put a bow on the last episode this season, just in case they still don't know if there is a Season 9.

Pirate says he was raised by the "wooden spoon" method. I always made sure I used the spoon part on his bottom. Like spanking with a cupped hand. No wonder he just laughed at me. Both him and his brother.

Oh, my. I love the show. Without Kate it's pointless. The whole show is about her and Richard. That's very sad.
