    You mean the Cheerleader will stay buried forever? Yes, the last season it took off on a weird tangent with the carnival that really did not tie to the original season. This will be interesting.

    The Carnival Season was horrid the only thing that would have saved it if at the very last episode when The Cheerleader/Claire had to jump of the high tower in front of the reporters was if a shark had been at the bottom of the tower and ate her.

    Although it was fun when they had the Sylar believing he as a Petrelli brother and working with Peter.

    It looks like a remake of the second season of Touch.

    I actually liked Touch until about half-way through the second season, but if it didn't work with that cast, why would people like it with this one? Having people who are trying to harm a child just doesn't really work as a plot.

    OMG! I only had about 10 minutes to check out The Private Lives of Nashville Housewives, but I LOVED the part I saw. So far the cast looks so good. Very interesting and well known people who are actually trying to be real. I'm impressed and will start a thread on it, as soon as I watch the entire episode, unless someone beats me to it.

    I watched Mindgames on ABC last night. I found it very interesting and I want to know more, especially about the characters, who all have their flaws. It's a very interesting premise and not more of the same old, same old. It did give me moments that surprised me, especially about Christian Slater's character.

    The vibe I got was something akin to Leverage and Person of Interest where the main characters can behave badly in order to accomplish good things. I'll definitely watch again.

    Mindgames didn't do well in the ratings

    I watched it today online. Yeah, Christian Slater's character is definitely layered. I think, for me, the turn off will be his brother. No matter how brilliant he may be, the level of mania they write him at exhausts me. I'm fully aware of bipolar and the highs and lows so I don't want anyone to think I'm unsympathetic. The reason I stopped watching that show with Keifer was because every week the boy escaped the institution and wound up in some perilous situation.

    I find when a character is too complex it takes away from not only the storyline but the other cast members as well. I'll give it another shot though because I find the premise fascinating.

    That's just how I felt about Steve Zahn's brother character. If he remains that LOUD, it will just turn me off. But, I'm not willing to write it off after only the pilot. I'm willing to give them a little chance to settle down because I can se some interesting stories coming from it.

    I like Christian Slater and think he's a good actor. He doesn't seem to have had a really big success on tv though. I don't know if he just doesn't resonate with the average tv audience or if he's not had great material, but I would like to see him in a show that stays around for a while.

    I just watched the first episode of The Americans new season. Oh, my! It picked up right where it left off as far as being cutting edge and in your face with the reality of the story. Wow!

    I'm still carrying a grudge over Breaking In.... I think Christian Slater and Mark Valley need to do a show together. They both usually signal the kiss o death for a show and maybe their mojo would cancel each other out (I like both of them and have no idea why they kill shows)
