I just finished watching the last episode of The Taste Season 1 and I'm busy watching The Grimm and The House of Cards.

All good in there own way.

I tried to get into The Bible. It's on right before Vikings. I couldn't though. It just didn't seem well done... something was missing or something...
Kind of like when I saw Ben Hur advertised so I turned to it. Then I realized it was a new version of Ben Hur and just not done well... maybe there's some stories we should leave to the sixties and it's powerful actors. Or maybe the new versions appeal to a younger crowd.

Have not been watching it. Already know what the Bible says. Got my religious education as a child. Loved the Old Testament's stories. I even surprise Spike when I know the answers to Bible questions on Jeopardy.

Kayelle, thanks for the PSA on "Call The Midwife". A real gritty series. Love it.

I watched the second episode last night. It follows along with the Bible pretty well. I also grew up learning the Bible, and have also read it several times, but this series is quite good, and interesting to watch. It's like when you watch the Ten Comandments over and over even though you know the story.

That makes sense to me.
Some people watch TV for entertainment.

We are watching Masterchef AllStars at the moment, it is great!

They bought back some of the best cooks from all the past seasons of MC and they battle it out, good entertainment

We don't have TV in our home (rather we have big TFT screen tv *** monitor but without cable connection). None believe this but it is true. We don't feel the need of TV.

I think this is shameful .... America's Most Wanted has been cancelled again.

That show has been on since 1988 and it has done a ton of good.

Too bad one of the big 3 won't take it down a notch and make room for a program that actually does some good for society.

You can blame it on reality shows. They don't have to pay for script writers, costumes or sets. Mindless TV.
