Sorry to hear that Steve. I was annoyed when ABC canned "Mind Games". I don't remember what its ratings were, but I think they were in the "meh" range. To add insult to injury though, ABC replaces this quirky, fast-paced dramady with..."Swapping Wives"??? How low the viewing audiences' level has sunk...

The one that gets me is "The Goldbergs". Good gravy! I barely managed to get through 10 minutes of one episode. It's got to be one of the worst sitcoms ever.

And yet it's been renewed for a second season.

You're more patient than I. I can't even stand the commercials for it!

I don't know if I should laugh or not!

Also was watching Upstairs Downstairs (the new version). It's all just a nice change of pace from The plethora of programming about doctors, lawyers, and crime dramas, that we get so much of here.
Thanks for the tip Bunny. I just found "Larkrise to Candleford" at Amazon. Sounds good to me too.

I watched it on Netflix (2 discs, 7 episodes, 2012) and liked it a lot. Would love to see more.
Season two of Bletchley Circle is available on Amazon, although only the first two episodes are available right now, as I believe that's all that's aired on American tv so far. The show is fascinating to me, although I have to use subtitles as "English Speak" is hard for me to understand.

Now why doesn't that surprise me? Any man who is willing to have his wife sleep under another man's roof for an extended time, deserves to be divorced.

The same could be said for the women.

So true. And it is probably the woman who insisted that they participate in the show.

I wish I had more time to watch TV, as of right now I only manage to watch the 10 o'clock news and maybe half an hour of criminal minds. I used to watch a lot of TV on PC during work, when I program stuff, but now with new management, i stopped that.
