Has anyone here watched this show? Personally I love it! The writing is so clever in my opinion. But I must confess, what drew me in was Jesse Metcalfe! I love him!

I saw about two episodes while visiting Mom in TN, and I must say, I was rather drawn in. It was interesting, and quite entertaining. Sadly, I haven't had the time nor have I remembered to watch anymore episodes.

Joey: The question is, Rachel, does he like you? ''Cuz if he doesn''t, then it''s all just a moo point.
Rachel: Huh...a...moo point?
Joey: Yeah. It''''s like a cow''s opinion. It doesn''t matter....It''s moo.

I havn't seen it yet, but we get it on February 17 *giddy*. However, from the commercials this looks like a really funny show.

I absolutely love this show. It makes me laugh sooo much. I love the characters and the all the actors/resses in it. Another big plus for me is that I can watch it with my mom. :D

Me: What was that noise?
Shan: Jackie, its been thundering out for the past half hour.
Me: It has?
Shan: Yes, Jackie. Your brain exploded.

OMG! I watched the first episode tonight and I love it. All the characters are so interesting and different. I'm also really anxious(sp?) to see what the big secret is.

I think they changed aired it earlier/later a few times to accomodate sports and specials, but its usual time slot is Sunday at 9.

*old topic of not-so-oldness, I resurrect thee!*

I've seen the first six episodes of this show, and it's right now one of only two shows I download (the other is Doctor Who). Hopefully, I'll soon catch up with our local screening of the show.

I personally am amazed at what Jesse Metcalfe can do when not hampered by the demanding schedule for a daytime soapie. No longer do I associate him with repeated lines about how Miguel saw part of Charity's battle with Zombie and got really confused. Then again, I haven't actually seen Passions since Timmy well and truly died (we're a little behind with the show).

I also like the fact that if you miss an episode, you're completely buggered. It's a nice change from having episodes where you can quickly catch up on all the 411.

Ack >< I've heard such good things about it, yet I never seem to be able to watch it.

It is like a crazy cult following at my school... even worse than Sex and the City was... (And THAT is saying something...)

I really will have to sit down and watch it sometime...
