    Re: Eastwick

    I enjoyed it, although the whole thing was too predictable. The previews darn near gave away the entire episode. Nothing left to surprise us.
    I'll definitely be watching next week. I think I'll get a more accurate opinion when I don't know the whole episode before watching it.
    As for the Darryl character, I kept thinking the guy who plays Karl from Desperate Housewives could have done it justice. Charm, cockiness, deceptiveness, understanding & vulnerabe when need be & definitely good looking.

    If the actor playing Darryl would quit trying to be the incarnation of Jack Nicholson and bring his own style to the part then I might find him a little more believable in the role (or maybe it's just me doing too much comparison?). I also couldn't see past Kyle XY being all grown up! Overall I enjoyed it but can't see it lasting as a series.

    I liked the costumes. I want to know where to shop for Rebecca R's belly-hiding outfits, lol!
    The devil guy was a jerk, not at all sexy. What were they thinking when they cast him?
    I thought it was funny how the beginning had a narrator a la Desperate Housewives, only to find out it was a lady reading a children's story, lol. Clearly they are going for the Desperate Housewives viewers. I will watch it. The town is beautiful.

    I hope this Wednesday night lineup (Modern Family-Cougar Town-Eastwick) doesn't tank! There's not a lot out there for "my demographic," and it is frustrating when they cancel stuff. We were kind of saved from that by the writer's strike before - was that last year? It is all a blur! - but now there are so many new shows at once that the networks will no doubt take away some of the things we are trying to watch!

    Yeah, I will be watching in spite of him. But it was just the first episode. --roll eyes smilie--

    Since I am not a fan of the DH narrator device, at first, I cringed and almost gave up. But I persevered and was enchanted.

    I am loving the use of color and a million other things about this show.

    I love and hate how you phrased that. But from their point of view, it's all about the $$$, and not art, creativity, entertainment, enchantment, and escape.
    The Bachelor/Bachelorette series is a soap opera with unskilled actors, bad writing, and beautiful locations...it even edits the real moon!

    I, too, was taken aback to see Kyle XY in such a grown up role...LOL. I missed this past season (waiting for netflix) but I see it must have been the last.

    I am a fan of the movie, which was much creepier, and a huge fan of Charmed, so I was ready for a new witching series. I LOVED IT! I thought it was a wonderful weave from the town heritage fair to the telling of the town story to children to the ants replacing frogs as a harbinger of evil to the three women finding each other at the fountain of the three witches. Power of Three...here we go again.

    I also loved the Darryl character...he was so slimy smooth in playing to each woman's wish at the fountain. Rebecca R is so rubinesque sexy, she oozes...beautiful...and dreams the future; superwoman with the glasses to cover her hypnotic eyes is luscious; and earth mother who can't get her tomatoes to stop growing, comes into her own. Each storyline has shown a realization of power possessed and it's only a matter of time before Darryl gets his comeuppance.

    I loved the playful music and the writing. I hope it continues for some time to come.

    ETA: I also loved the color palate, Velvet Red.

    I really enjoyed this show. I loved the New England scenery and fall foliage. Enjoyed the storyline.

    I was pleasantly surprised by this show too. I was prepared to hate it, but I didn't. I don't know if it's a "must-watch" show, but I think it'll definitely be a "must-tape" show.

    Honestly I thought it was a little cliche and predictable but it was entertaining nonetheless. I'm looking forward to see where things will go.

    It fills my Charmed void anyways .

    Second show was much better without seeing it all in previews. I like this as much as I expected to.
    To all the critics who trashed it I say PPPPFFFFFFTTTTT! You just don't know how to enjoy a fun show.
