    So ABC is replacing a sophisticated show with a crassless, boring show. Who would have thunk it.............not!

    Not a permanent replace, at least what ABC intones.

    Again, I would really look at Ricci and the other's news if they're filming pilots. This is how we knew "No Ordinary Family" was toast. They were searching WHILE the show was filming, they even knew it was over. Here... I don't get that even from Karine's Tweet.

GCB is about a mean girl who returns to her howmtown 20 years later: the show doesn't sound interesting.
    10 vs. I think 14 for "Pan Am" - even for a mid season replacement, does not bode well for "GCB"...

    So there is some hope.

    The network had several midseason shows taped, and some of the replacement shows had less than 10 episodes ordered. It might have had something to do with the cost of taping so many TV shows. GCB was taped last spring/summer. The writer of GCB also wrote "Soapdish." On GCB, there are endless displays of hypocrisy, (by the women who had been bullied), in being churchgoing Christians while relentlessly scheming to ruin the main character's life.

    The others are yes, a little bit disconcerting.

    Still... IMHO on an international scale we will see people prefer "Pan Am" over "GCB" because save a few shows, they tend to frown about mocking religion ("Father Ted" probably one of the few true exceptions I"ve seen - "Vicar of Dibley" was a comedy, but that show with Dawn French as a woman vicar - before this time - actually did foretell a future where women could serve as priests and pastors).

    (Maybe I'm rooting too hard for this show, but sheesh... this is the first show in a very long time I've actually wanted to see a new show make it longer than a season on ABC. I think the other exception was "Castle" which is now on its fourth or fifth season).
    I haven't seen "EastEnders" in many years because it isn't on PBS where I now live. But I did watch it on PBS in Florida where they showed it from the beginning. I loved it in its early days and I actually knew Wendy Richards from EE before Are You Being Served?. However, even in those early years, I thought the show began to deteriorate after some of the original characters disappeared. I do watch a lot of British tv even if I have to rent the DVDs.
    Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety deserve neither liberty nor safety.

    Much rolling in the hay...figuratively and literally. All got story lines today, which was good. Regarding Ashley Greene's character and Ted
    Click to see Spoiler:
    I read that she is a lesbian who is going to hit on Maggie. Laura looked like she was waking up to what she was missing with Ted tonight.

    Re: Pan Am (ABC)

    That proverbial roll in the hay had me chuckling... just when things are heating up for Dean and Colette, trouble may be just around the corner (previews). I enjoyed tonight's episode as it showcased everyone. I was thinking that the free love of the 60's and the sexual revolution happened a bit later in the decade. I was just a young child during Kennedy's administration so I wouldn't know about the social mores of the time, but I was surprised by all the bed hopping going on. I have to qualify this by saying, though, that I was raised Roman Catholic and premarital sex is taboo so any girl who "put out" outside of marriage was considered a "bad" girl.
