Men in Trees 10/13/06

This episode left a big silly grin on my face. It's just a nice change of pace after a week of procedurals and sitcoms. The building of these characters and how they interact with one another is the strength of the show. It's probably going to have to fill that Everwood void for me, and it's doing a good job.

The snoring subplot hit home for me, but mainly because I can snore up a storm as well.

We got more development from the Slattery boys (the fight between the brothers is always welcomed because the city boy is an asshat).

Glad to see Ben finally moving on, even if it took a caribou to get him to see the light.

It's typically in 3rd place (behind Deal or No Deal, and Close to Home), but the ratings aren't terrible, and are very steady. It might make it for a full season, but probably won't know until November.

Good to know...

Especially after last night this series is definately growing on me more and more... and now with 'everwood' gone, I really need my quirky small-town dramedy fix...

Next week, it is up against season premiere of Las Vegas, plus Close to Home. May be more of a contest, and a more distant third.

This is wife's no holds barred must see favorite show on Fridays, and it puts her in a good mood for the weekend. Hope it's around for a while!

I have never been a fan of Anne Heche. But, I love her in this role. I just love this quirky show.

I hear ABC is quite pleased with the ratings so far and it's shaping up to be a real sleeper for them. Another great episode that just flew by. I'll be extremely ticked if it does get axed, but I think it'll be one of the lucky ones to make a full year. The cast is just so damn likeable and the plots/dialogue are really great...and it seems like they aren't dragging out things forever like most shows do (Marin and Jack hooking up, Ben kicking out his wife etc.). The Annie and Patrick storyline rules.

Even thought it ended up 4th this week in its timeslot, it actually gained viewership from the last 2 weeks. The reason it was 4th was because of a good outing on Fox's baseball playoff coverage.

Just watched this episdoe and agree it was very good. All 3 stories were interesting.

ABC seems to be happy with it as there's talk it may move to the post-Grey's slot after the cancel Six Degrees.
