Noooooo, 'bad judge' is being canceled! good comedy, truly funny is a rare thing to find on network tv these days. kate walsh is hilarious in 'bad judge'--hilarious! i love to laugh, but i am a tough critic when it comes to sitcoms. it took me a whole season to get on board with 'big bang theory', and am still on the fence with shows like modern family. 'bad judge' is on at nine o'clock on thursday nights, and follows 'the big loser' for chrissakes! they are canceling this promising new show after airing only five episodes, not an adequate trial run for this time slot on nbc--so unfair!!

I'm sorry Vit, but from start "Bad Judge" looked like a bad idea to me only "judging" by the promo's for the show, and the sitcoms just don't do it for me anymore. I'm sorry about that too, because sitcoms used to be my favorite thing on tv. "King of Queens" was my last favorite, a very long time ago.

On dramatic note, I don't know why I didn't start watching Parenthood when it started, and here it is in it's 7th and final season now. I think Craig T Nelson is a remarkable actor, so thanks to Netflix streaming, I've now watched the first season and I'm hooked! It's good to know I have six more seasons to enjoy this family with marathon viewing at times of my choice. I highly recommend "Parenthood".

i agree, kayelle. koq's is one of my alltime favorite sitcoms, and i too am late coming to the gate for parenthood. i've only seen a smattering of episodes, something else must have been on that i watched instead...score another one for netflix.

I too find myself going back to the reruns of some of my favorite shows. As corny as it sounds, I find myself watch the VERY old Lone Ranger. When I explained to The Pirate that as a kid, I just loved this show. I used to listen to it every night for 15 minutes. Of course the story always ended like it should by Friday night. Then one night My father told me not to worry. Nothing is going to happen to The Lone Ranger. How would they put it on the air the next night. Then when it came on television, I was in my glory. I have The Pirate hooked. I point out the obvious to those that watched it as a kid. Like how the hoof beats are always louder as they approached the rock where the mike was hidden. Then they fade away as the rider continues on. Or how they manage to pass the same rock over and over. I wonder if we will ever see Gale Storm again?

I am fed up with the reality shows. My own life is a reality that I am living every day.

I got a little turned off with television last season because a few of the shows I liked (Almost Human, Tomorrow People) were cancelled. I'm rebelling by not watching any new shows on those particular networks.

I do like a some of the comedies, including "Big Bang" and "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." And, I hate to admit it, but I also watch "Hawaii Five-0". Yes, the acting isn't that great and, yes, the stories are contrived. Come to think of it, I'm not sure why I watch it, but I do. Could be because of Grace Park.

I watch it too, for the theme song. Hands down, the BEST TV theme song ever!
