    I will be checking out the season finale of Drop Dead Diva.

    I haven’t been around my TV all weekend, but if there was a new Psych on Friday, I will watch that from my DVR too.

    Oh, and the weather here in Ohio is great!

    Yay for Drop Dead Diva! I’m enjoying this hidden gem over on Lifetime quite a bit.

  3. Alison on October 11th, 2009 9:30 pm

    I’ll be watching DH and Brothers and Sisters!

    Watching Three Rivers … right now! I actually enjoyed the episode last week, so I’m going to add it to my list. I really don’t watch anything on Sundays, so it fits right into my schedule.

    Just finished Drop Dead Diva. Quite the cliffhanger. Any word on whether if/when it’ll be back?

    Loved David Denman’s softshoe. Who knew he had those dancing skills?

    Yeah, drop dead diva! Holy smokes that ending kind of came out of nowhere! I still have to think about whether or not I think it is a legit plot move. I mean, her mom visited, right? And Teri never knew she *** a *******? Ah!!!!

    Am I the only one who is like “how the heck does jane now have THREE men in her life?” haha, gorgeous ones too!

    I think we have to wait till next summer for more eps. Boo that!

    I never got to psych, it is still on my dvr. But I did catch up on project runway from thursday. I liked it.

    Wow, what a great season finale for Drop Dead Diva. That scene where Grayson accidentally revealed to Stacy that he’s losing sleep over Jane was awesome…really sets up next year great, and further develops the already complex Jane/Deb dichotomy. I also thought it was cool that they used the song ‘Piece of Mind’ by Castaneda in the background of the scene – they’ve really had a bunch of great music choices all season long, and it’s great to hear that. (fyi, you can watch the scene at: )
    Can’t wait for next season!
