    Up until recently I've been abstaining from that show in fear of what may be and you know what I like it but like most Shonda Rhimes projects I know exactly where this one is going. She keeps doing the same twists. If a woman has been sleeping with someone I already know he's her boss and she's probably pregnant. There is always the odd one with a twisted history with men (this time we get two! whoo!) and there's always the Asian one who is very focused, very into her work and she's exceptional.

    I like it but most of Rhimes' shows only are good until like season three and then they start to suck.

    Do y'all like it?

    Wouldn't sucking make it better? Or are you such a spoiled brat that you only enjoy it if swallowing is included?

    I don't want to leave this thread without calling someone a "whore."

    I like it, but it seems like it's going to burn out quickly; most of the secrets have been revealed.

    I don't really watch network TV too immature and over edited for my taste. You can't even say 'fuck' on net TV. I guess HBO has corrupted me.

    British network television is what you're looking for. Cursing, nudity, and sex, it's all there. haha. There was a British show I used to watch, and they used to rebroadcast it on an American network, the show had nearly 1/3 of the scenes taken out because they couldn't be shown. lol

    Yes you're right man, how can I forget Brit shows. The writing is so phenomenal, most US TV producers are just remaking UK hit TV shows. In the case of Downton, they didn't even bother remaking it-it's just so good! But I'm glad they remade Shameless-

    It seems like a hit or miss with American remakes of British shows, on one hand shows like The Office and The Inbetweeners seem to be good adaptions, on the other hand, a show I used to watch called Skins was remade, and it was horrible. (though MTV was the one who remade it, so it's not like I had much hope)

    Lol, I watched "Being Human" on netflix, which is a British show and now they are making same show in America, and the American version sucks ass. Although maybe those who haven't seen the British version might like it.

    Yeah man MTV murdered Skins- I didn't even bother watching the primer because even the cast members they picked didn't seem to fit the theme of the first show. The first episode I saw was the Russian trip- and I fuckin loved the show then on..

    On scandal- I'm a huge fan of Karry Washington, in my opinion the Scandal plot is very similar to ABCs Revenge, which has earned ABC its "Lost" viewers back (no pun intended) and in my view NBC pretty much copied it.
