  • Trevor Ashman

    Great to see The Blacklist rating well :)

  • Tania

    I’m shocked to see that The Great Food Race didn’t score higher. I’m even more surprised to see that Sunday was such a hit – I guess I’m in the minority that does not think it’s a good show!

    • Maggie

      Nope; same here!
      The Great Food Race was fun.

  • Tania

    I was wondering what other people thought about The Great Food Race last night?
    There’s quite a bit of discussion about it under yesterday’s TV Talk thread already.
    Anyone know if the houses are rented / leased? Would make sense as to why some of the recipes didn’t pan out, as Roger suggested (contestants wouldn’t have been used to that oven, etc.).

    • Maggie

      Loved it – and yes, the homes were gorgeous.
      I’m off to see what Roger said in the other thread …

  • Dave

    I quite enjoyed The Great Food Race, although I was expecting the “race” component to be in the shows right from the start, sounds like not for another few weeks. But I Loved The Blacklist, great telly there! Was a bit like 24 for me with high production values, movie quality acting, and an ever-changing storyline.

    • Maggie

      Same here, Dave (with The Great Food Race).
      I haven’t watched The Blacklist yet, but it’s on my list of things to catch over the next few days.
