    MAD MAX 4 – 4/10

    NEW GIRL’s 4th season featured the funniest episode of any show this year (BACKGROUND CHECK) and a touching finale (because of a certain couple; not because Damon Wayans Jr. decided to leave again). The rest of the season was decent. I hated NASHVILLE’s 1st season but, for some reason, it became a guilty pleasure during its 2nd season. That continued in this 3rd season. It’s just so melodramatic in a funny way and it has mostly good original songs. VAMPIRE DIARIES’ 6th season was so hit-or-miss that, unlike the other 2 shows, it took me about a minute to remember what it was about. At least they handled the actors’ exits well-

    I’ll watch THE D TRAIN.

    I rather watch Lifetime’s version of the Amanda Knox story (And, hopefully, the sequel) than seeing The Face of an Angel instead!!!
