I'll be watching. Hate the name! Couldn't they have come up with something better?
I watched, even though it's not the kind of thing I usually go for, and I never saw Gilmore Girls.
It was pretty good, especially for a summer series, with a good number of chuckles, and the teenaged characters weren't annoying (I'd expected them to be).
I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this. I was suprised. I have never watched a series on the Family Channel (was it the Disney Channel at one time?) and the ones I tried were really "meh". Wizards of Waverly Place - I don't think I got through the first episode. Too kidish for me. This is for teenagers and adults. Edgy, drinking, sex mentioned etc. Bunheads seems to be slang for ballarinas.
Disney Channel and ABC Family (formerly the Family Channel) are two completely different channels (although both under the Disney umbrella.)
I just poked my eyes out halfway through the 1 minute promo...
After watching that promo I'd say the name is the best part.
Hmm... about halfway through the pilot and I still don't know what I think of the show.
Feels kind of slow. Not as much energy as something like "Make It or Break It." The lead kind of bores me. But I love Alan Ruck, and this is the first time I've seen Kelly Bishop and she's awesome. And it took me a day or two, but the name finally clicked (Chorus Line). Plus, I like the choreographer.
So far, I'm entertained, but I don't know if I'd go out of my way to watch it.
I enjoyed the pace also. Things don't have to be rapid fire, joke after joke.
I liked GG (and that other show with Efram, which I put in the same boat) about 7 years ago...don't think I could get back into something like it.
Speaking of Efram - I thought he was going to Julliard....why is he a cop now???
Ephram Brown from Everwood? He became a cop after his true love Amy dumped him, turned evil, and vowed revenge against this rich family in the Hamptons.
Didn't she spend some time in a dysfunctional family as well? Or, more dysfunctional than the Abbots?
Yes, a family from whom you should never ever accept a dinner invitation unless you enjoy watching emotional meltdowns.
ABC Family was previously:
- FOX Family Channel (1998-2001)
- The Family Channel (1990-1998)
- The CBN Family Channel (1988-1990)
- CBN (1977-1988)
When CBN (Pat Robertson's organization) transfered the network to FOX, they made it a requirement that the word "Family" remain in the network name for as long as the network exists, no matter how many times it changes hands.
My favorite 'Family Channel' show was Greek. A great show, and it showed a LOT of debauchery for being on ABC Family.
Everwood, that's right.
Thanks for catching me up, people !!
It would appear that in Everwood, Revenge is best left to the Rookie Blue and not just Brothers and Sisters.
