  2. Man..as I told Lor, I pretty much forgot about SH. I almost forgot about the date that Scandal is suppose to air and I'm trying my best not to forget about the premiere of How To Get Away With Murder. There is so much to watch that I fear that I'm going to forget about watching one of those shows.

    1. It comes on right after Scandal which is right after Grey's Anatomy-Thursdays @ 10 ET.

      Sleepy Hollow's premiere is repeating again this Thursday I believe if you want to catch it again.

    6. Me too, I was so baffed! Katrina is one of the most useless characters on TV! the episode was so fun and Abby was front and centre. John Cho is always a pleasure.

    7. I wondered if John Cho was going to make and appearance because he has a new show coming out (maybe already out) also. Spoiler alert: I loved when Abby ran into Ichabod's arms.

    8. I too loved that part of SH..just beautiful but Katrina still comes in the way of things..ugh! Did the staff behind them learn any lessons about the first go round of showing the show? Katrina isn't making SH. Ichabbie is. the ratings was up because of them and the ratings went down because of her.

      I also read the news about the fate of Twisted. It got cancelled as we all expected. Man..the show had potential,but the producers/writers took Kylie and Avan's talents for granted. Avan is doing another project where he is supposed to be in a mini series on Spike TV..but Kylie will also be in this series as well. She's is playing a character named Suhad. Supposedly,they will have a tight bond..in which way I don't know,but we'll see.

      I'm hoping that those two will be starring in many roles together. I wish that they could have starred in a prime time show. Speaking of Twisted , the guy who played Charlie( Jack Fahrlee) on there is also How To Get Away With Murder. It would have been sweet if Avan and Kylie was on there.

    1. I DVR'd it, but haven't watched it yet. It just premiered last night while SH premiered Sunday. That is probably why everyone is talking about it instead. Plus I like SH a lot better than Scandal. I'm not a fan of Scandal and only watched the last few episodes because of Mama and Papa Pope. Other than those two I find it kind of boring. I'm glad the clothes Olivia wears are available. :)

    2. I loved Scandal this is not the show I loved.... :( So predictable

      Also the show continues to be..... One black woman and a latino man is not a diverse cast! Can I get some colour please????

    3. Ankh...girl, folks is tired of that foolishness. It's jumped the shark.

  4. Scandal:
    It was ok. It went as I expected in some parts, and what I'd hoped to see in others. Expected to see Olitz being resurrected despite Jolivia running off to the end of the world with each other - that looks like it will continue to happen - unfortunately. Ick. Eww. Ugh.

    Hoped to see Olivia's gut back and in working order and the OPA Gladiators back to FIXING ISH - looks like those things will be happening. So that's good.

    And #FuckItMellie was nearly as entertaining as #DrunkMellie so that helped liven things up a bit.

    I know you ain't asked, but since we already talking about em -

    How To Get Away With Murder:
    Loved it! Viola slayed in so many ways, and the whole show came out of the gate kicking ass and taking names. Excited to see how it continues. Great to have been on twitter when #DatMurda hashtag was born :) NICE!

    Sleepy Hollow:
    Kinda "meh" because Katrina. Seriously, that wench needs to Be Gone. Still great chemistry and banter with Ichabbie and the usual over the top shenanigans ensuing. I'll watch, because I want to see if they wise up and ditch the witch - and to see if we get more of the sisters interacting with each other; and MORE Orlando and John Cho.

    And YEAH: More color up on Scandal please. That was bothering me a bit since the beginning, and now with Harrison gone, there's a spot open a OPA.....

    1. Scandal:
      I loved F*ItMellie. When she walked in with her pjs eating a box of cereal and drinking. I was thinking I've had days like that! I believe her grief is spot on. I have a cousin who lost a child and its scary how similar she acted to Mellie minus the drinking.

      If I'm on an island with a man who is crazy for me; I'm not leaving that to go back to one who who is just crazy. But I notice a lot of women in real life do dumb crap like that sooooo.


      Sleepy Hollow:
      I wonder how much of John Cho we will see once his show starts. I would not count on seeing a whole lot of him. Especially if his show (Selfie) takes off. Doubt that though. Doubt they will lose Katrina. I tape the show so I always fast forward through her parts anyway.

      I haven't watched HTGAWM yet. Probably watch it this weekend. From what I heard everyone loves it and says its better then Scandal by a long shot.

    2. Though I will speak for myself, I thought that HTGAWM was good. It helps that you have Viola's superb acting and Shonda's expertise at directing this series( and Viola reminds me soo much of my sociology professor. I learned a lot from her)). I just find it funny how these law students are studying law but at the same time in trouble for the death of one of their peers. If you're interested in seeing it ,ABC is showing it on their website.

      Scandal was good too. Mellie tripped me out talking her "1976 lovelife" ..lol!. I feel bad for her. She lost her child, with a husband who have thrown her( as well as Olivia) under the bus so much ,it's not even funny. I also laughed when Fitz kept telling her that he's not going to see Olivia anymore. You can tell by his body languages passing her. My only 2 probs with the season premiere is 1) The so called "Underground Railroad" sandwich Jake ate. The name for it doesn't sit well with me. and 2) Killing off Harrison.. In a case like that, I just believe in letting him go off to another place( Like Olivia and Jake) just in case he may want him back on the show.

    3. I would like to point out that Shonda Rhimes is the executive producer of HTGAWM, she's not writing or directing yet!

      I can't with Mellie, I know I'm heartless but white media won't let me like her... Also when has Fitz thrown Mellie under the bus? ( I know I'm a Fitz stan, even with his tendencies)

      The "underground railroad" was horrible and not necessary. Jake is useless... and who is paying the bill?? Because he doesn't have a job.

    4. @M-"Its 1976 down there" had me rolling! As for Harrison what makes you think he is dead. The coffin was never opened (as Short tweeted) so he can always do a soap opera come back. Personally I don't care because I've never been a fan of Short.

      @Minabobina-Jake is useless... and who is paying the bill?? Because he doesn't have a job.
      I don't think he is useless. I think he is a teaser to keep fans hoping that she will leave Fitz for Jake. Olivia wasn't working either. And I'm pretty sure neither one of them were the live paycheck to paycheck type. People like that do not function like the masses. Neither one of them are married, have kids, or real social lives so I'm pretty sure they had money saved and invested.
