Well Kathy, I'm in the minority with you. I don't care for reality shows, either.
Regarding "The River", is it or is it not going to be cancelled? I've seen heavy talk that it is/will be cancelled but I haven't seen anything definite. I guess if it was cancelled the last show ended kinda with some closure...they ride around the amazon until the end of time seeing lots of freaky stuff.
Unforgettable will be forgotten in a short period of time. It is cancelled and had a very weak season finale.
Though the Mentalist is one of my favorite shows....it was another weak season finale if you ask me...sorry Jane. I'll be looking to see how they patch this up this fall.
In my opinion the two NCIS shows both ended STRONG...and these weren't really my favorite shows. Actually, I originally did not like the NCIS-LA show at all...but over time they converted...good character buildup. With NCIS ending the season with the possibility that *any* of the characters (or all of them) could have been blown away it seems there should be lots of folks awaiting the new episode this fall. It looks like NCIS-LA also has some complex issues with two of the main characters questionable. Welll done on both shows in regards to season finales...both shockers.
The last regular show that I watch is Person of Interest. This has grown to be my favorite. I like the characters and the multiple story threads. Good character development. Good job of "leaving you hanging".
Ok, that was my tv show critique for the evening...everybody throw 25 cents into the hat.
