    Question on this. We watched Gracepoint, the American knock off, I haven't gone back and watched Broadchurch season 1 because I've been told the 2 series are identical. Can I start Broadchurch season 2, with only having watched Gracepoint, and not be lost on the plot?

      I wish I could answer but I don't watch Gracepoint. The only thing I know is that the ending of GP S1 is different from S1 of BC.

        Well, that escalated quickly. Especially with the family situation. Jesus. And this ain't even the season finale!

            I understand the series finale to The Good Wife but I still hate it.

              This Magic Moment:

              30 For 30 about the Orlando Magic, during the Shaq/Penny years. In hindsight, man, they had a team. Youth, immaturity, etc, ruined it. I never like Shaq on the court/as a player, thought his ego got the best of him, and he even admits in this that it did. Good watch.

                Been watching The Detour on TBS, and it is outstanding so far. I've pretty much hated every comedy that TBS has come out with for the last 5+ years (I don't think I'm alone considering most of them haven't made it past 1-2 seasons), but this one might have staying power. I'm not sure how long they can continue on this storyline, but most of the episodes so far have been laugh out loud funny.

                          Looks like all crap. I like how there's a 24 w/o Keifer and then a new similar show w/ Kiefer.

                              Cast departures from two wheezing franchises....

                              NCIS, on "stay tuned for scenes from next episode," is making a splash about Michael Weatherly (DiNozzo) leaving the show; they showed all the team members giving him a big hug. Presumably that means he can leave alive....

                              For Castle, on the other hand, rumor is that they filmed two alternate endings. Either way, Stana Katic (Beckett) is gone; she is not coming back next year even if the show is. It's not clear yet whether the show will be renewed or not. Presumably they will know by next Monday, so that they can tell which ending to use! The assumption is that, if the show is being renewed, Beckett will die, if the show is not being renewed, she and Castle will have a happily ever after ending...
