    It was so bad that my attention was wandering by the end & when it ended & the next show started, I didn't even realize this 'till about 15 minutes into the next show, when I looked at the clock.

    Thumbs down.
    I agree, the lead put me off this show. Its not a bad concept, knowing who did it, then why it was done and how they get there. It might be good for some as a summer show, not for me

    I also agree about Motive. I tried it twice, but it did not hold my interest at all.

    I'm eager to take a look at Mistresses and at Graceland.

    Re: Summer Shows 2013

    I liked Motive. I'm going to keep watching. I saw the first episode of Graceland. I didn't love it, but I'll probably watch it. It has potential.

    NOT interested in Mistresses. I just hate the concept. I'm just not doing to watch a show that tries to make adultery seem alluring OR tries to make those who commit it seem sympathetic.

    I agree with your opinion of Mistresses. No interest, hate concept.

    I know nothing about Graceland. What channel is it on? Is this the Elvis Graceland?

    No, Graceland is not about Elvis place. It's on USA starting June 6, and I mostly adore their shows. Here's a link that describes the show.

    As an aside, I'd much rather watch mistresses than vampires, zombies, and serial killers, but that's just me. I'm also eager for the start of Burn Notice. This will be its final season and I'm curious to see how they resolve it, who survives, and where the characters go from there.

    How did you see Graceland? I thought it doesn't start until the 6th

    The first episode of Graceland was on Comcast OnDemand a while ago.

    Well, there goes that idea. I don't get USA.
    I also have no interest in vampires, zombies, and serial killers. Add cooking competitions shows to the list too. And competion shows where the contestants get deliberately beat up, as in Wipeout.

    I like the murder mysteries. That's why I had hopes for Motive. Too bad.

    The ads for Mistresses were driving me crazy because I couldn't place the Asian woman. Of course it is because she had spent many years looking for her husband on Lost. I have no interest in watching it but I guess the concept must be fairly successful since this is another show "borrowed" from BBC.
    That was a great message! And I've had a terrible day, so thank you.I love random acts of kindness.Really, realy appreciated.Scott- RIP SDL<3

    I actually enjoyed Motive.

    I recorded Brooklyn DA but haven't watched it yet.

    I saw someone mention Perception - is that back? I liked that show.
