I cant help but see it as a drawn out 500 days of Summer even down to the narration. Its not terrible, its tolerable, but is that what you really want from a show?

Manhattan Love Story

Compared to a couple other of the romantic shows that have been premiered recently - A to Z, You're the Worst - Manhattan Love Story has this brutally honest reality to it. I hope like You're the Worst, the network sees the promise of the show and renews it for a second season.

Not going to deny I love this type of show, so may be some what biased. The fact that there are a couple seasonal story arc's playing out as well as the weekly cases to solve makes it one of my highlight shows of the new season.

Add to the the amount of drama, suspense and just the right amount of creepy scares.

GREAT SHOW!

With some of the lack luster comedies this year I was a little bit skeptical about Younger, I'd seen a couple previews but decided to wait a few weeks then play catch up. After binge watching the first 6 episodes I actually screamed at my computer because I had to wait a week until the next one aired!!

The characters are really well written and the comedy is on point. There is a definite Sex and the City feel to it (both Darren Star works) but without so much of Carries self deprecation. Glad that this has been picked up for Series 2 as it keeps getting better.

Awkward.

I wasn't with Awkward from the beginning, one day decided to start it and then ended up binge watched the first 2 seasons. I think it lost its way somewhere in the middle of season 3 but I am am actually sad to see it go.

As a lot of people have mentioned, the show is really relatable. I didn't go through the US school system and I am far from being 17 any more, but the shit that Jenna and her friends worry about is the same shit that me and my girlfriends discuss over coffee ...

NCIS: New Orleans

My brother came to visit me in February and we had a mini catch up on NCIS episodes, we were also chatting about the other franchise's. One thing that we couldn't quite figure out was that while we both enjoy LA (me more than him #teamdensi) something about NOLA just makes us want to switch off ...

The thing I find most annoying is the recycled NCIS storylines ... DB Wong's character getting plutonium poisoning then trying to find out who murdered him before he died ... the ME getting taken hostage in autopsy ... You can change the location but we still all know its the same plot.

Brody, I really just want to punch her ... Can they please do a Kate and just get rid? The difference between her and the other women in the franchise, Kate, Ziva, Kensi even Bishop is that they have strong personalities, the don't take sh*t ... even the way she breaks down a door and enters with her gun drawn jeeeezus ... awful - i dont know if thats the way the character was written or the actress just being shocking

Some what of a mini rant, but compared to the other NCIS' I wouldn't miss it if it got cancelled ...

Just about made it through the first 20 minutes before I got bored. Not sure if it was Felicity Huffman's acting or character that I hated more. The interjected stories changed the pace, but not in a good way, it felt like restarting every time. Seems like it would have been better suited to the big screen.

Awful ... I am bemused by the amount of people who like this show!?

The content feels so dumbed down and as a modern adaptation of Pygmalion everyone knows where it is going. If it gets renewed i'll be shocked

I really like the idea of the show. I missed the initial cross over episode so wasn't sure what sort of a lead we'd get with Patricia Arquette (as I've only really seen her in Medium). While i'm still on the fence, the supporting cast is what is making me want to go back from more. I hope since it looks like the team will travel that there are enough story lines to make this a good procedural.

Not going to lie I loved the first series of Broadchurch (2nd not so much) and this definitely ticks the same boxes. While Juliette Lewis is pretty terrible, especially when she gave the murdered kids speech in the interrogation room - I can't help but want to see it through. The story telling is pretty good, although I have an inkling who did it, so I'm hoping there are a couple more spanners thrown in the works to keep me guessing until the end.
