Almost Human was good, I red somewhere that it was too expensive to make. Too bad, it was cool and interesting. Some of the shows new season openers were huge disappointment to me. Castle, Elementary, to name couple.

My favorite show continues to be "Blue Bloods". I love that family when they sit down to dinner on every episode, with Tom at the head of the table. Good grief that man is even more delectable as we have grown older together. Like fine wine, he is. I wish he'd loose those goofy glasses though.

America's Test Kitchen on PBS
last night I watch them make Cuban-style Picadillo and Cuban Shredded Beef
I'm making both VERY soon! (I think I have all of the ingredients)

just red that 69 shows were canceled. Out of 69 I only have seen 3 or 4, maybe heard of another 2 or 3. The only two I am sad to see go are Franklin and Bash and Almost Human. Some of the canceled shows were so bad to begin with I do not know how they lasted more than one seasoned, Revolution, Unforgettable.

One of the shows I watch faithfully is Mike and Molly. This show has no language problems, is very funny and depicts a family that could be living right next door to any of us.

PBS is another station along with the NatGeo channels that I turn to. The language on a lot of shows is really a problem for me. Always has been. I guest it is just my upbringing. I remember hearing Poo telling his friends out on the front steps to watch their language because my mother will throw you right out the door. And I would.

I'm sorry to hear that Unforgettable was canceled, it was on my recording schedule, and I really liked the unusual memory premise of the show. The chemistry between the two detectives reminded me of the show "Moonlighting" from many many moons ago.

That's surprising Addie that you like Mike and Molly. You should watch the movie Bridesmaids and see how you feel about Melissa McCarthy. I won't waste my time with anything she is in.

Is anyone else planning on watching "Peter Pan" on Thursday? I loved the 1950s version with Mary Martin. Ran around the house singing "I'm flying", driving my Mom to total distraction. I've been doing the same thing to Himself this week in the run-up to the show.

Although I loved the concept of "Sound of Music" done live on TV last year, in our opinion the producers erred in casting singers in the lead roles. While being able to carry a tune and keep time is important to a musical role, it's also important to be relaxed on stage. Most of the performers in "Sound of Music" looked very stiff. The leads in "Peter Pan" have acting creds, and how important will it be for Capt. Hook to hit the right notes?

I was in the sixth grade and some women from Wellesley Women's College were looking for a kid to take to the live production of Peter Pan in Boston. Jean Arthur was the star. (Yeah, I am dating myself!) I was chosen. So anytime, whether on TV or large stage, I never miss a performance. I read the story to my kids many times. You bet I will be watching it.

I agree with you. The folks on stage should look like they want to be there and are having fun. What's more fun than flying.
