    Scripted TV Random, Random **Spoilers**

    Wasn't sure where to post this so I started this.

    "Ringer" turned out to be pretty good. I remember BTVS started out slowly but this show has hit the ground running.

    I'm really looking forward to the return of Parenthood that started tonight. We have it recorded for tomorrow. Had to catch up on Hell's Kitchen tonight.
    Oh Grigor. You silly man.

    I want to see more of Ringer, too.

    Perhaps a few too many mirrors in the pilot. On the other hand, I thought they made very good use of NOT showing some things in order to build suspense.

    I definitely don't trust this guy on the right. Something doesn't ring true....watch out Sarah!

    I liked it, but I think they actually showed too much, unless it's a false lead (referring to the husband's hushed phone call trying to back out of something)

    I liked Ringer. I'll give it a try for a while and see where it heads.

    I thought the Ringer pilot was pretty awful, but most pilots are. Also, I had trouble getting used to the name Siobhan used so many times--it sounded so "Dynasty." The story itself was intriguing, though, and I hope it will pick up as the story solidifies.

    I enjoyed it, save the comically green screened boat scene.

    I was only in it for BTVS loyalty anyway, so I was pleasantly surprised.

    Me too. I think it will turn into an entertaining, campy show.

    If that boating scene is any indication...

    I just watched the Playboy Club. Gotta give it a big 'ol MEH. I know not to judge a series based solely on the pilot, so I'll watch episode 2. But I am not optimistic.

    I could not shake the feeling that Nick Dalton was trying to be Don Draper. And he was absolutely no Don Draper.

    I spent all of Hawaii 5-0 rolling my eyes and thinking it had jumped the shark until the end.

    Castle was very good.

    HIMYM is always meh to me.

    I gave up on HIMYM after 4.5 seasons.

    I also watched Up All Night. Again, I feel like I need to wait until after the second episode to fairly judge it. I love the cast (Will Arnett, Maya Rudolph, Cristina Applegate, a cute baby).

    You're a better woman than I am. I love the first 3 or 4 episodes of Hawaii 5-0, especially the pilot. But gave up after 6 or 7 episodes. I was so disappointed.

    I'm really looking forward to:
    The New Girl, X Factor, and American Horror Story.
