'One Tree Hill' Wraps Filming After Nine Years
Sad Great Great show though!!! This show came out when I was in school so it's kinda cool to grow up with a tv show
At lot of people don't realise how much of a benefit to Wilmington, where it's filmed, it has been. A lot of the crew and cast actually set up homes there as well as small businesses in the town and the show itself employs hundreds. It brings huge money into Wilmington so it's a big change for the town itself now that it's ending. They even made an official "One Tree Hill" day, which to me is bonkers but meh lol

Really looking forward to this show as I have seen most of the cast in previous shows and they can actually act!
It's funny how they are trying to hide Sarah Michelle's pregnancy in the show now. A lot of upper body shots..even though her boobs have gotten bigger

Was a bit unsure of it first, but so delighted I stuck with it. The show is crazy!!
The plot twists are coming very fast, and I can't wait to see the Finale!

......the show that keeps on going.....even when they've stopped making it....
Clearly there's witchcraft at work.
They confirmed that this is the last season for Desperate Scousewives, the last episode is this Sunday I think.
Haha fixed!! What did people make of this season finales??? Vampire diaries - holy fuck, i cried like a little girl. Grey's - predictable
Delighted to see True Blood getting renewed again. Think it's about time they killed "How I Met Your Mother" though; it'sm had a great run but it's jumping several sharks now and needs to be tied up before it ruins it's legacy, a la F.R.I.E.N.D.S.
Everyone keep fingers and toes crossed that the brilliant 'Unforgettable' gets renewed in the next few weeks, all my other favorites have been renewed bar this. Anyone seen the Vampire Diaries season finale, it was epic, although from the books we sort of knew it would eventually happen. Secret Circle has improved in its last few episodes but really needs to increase its supernatural creatures beyond witches and worm like demons.
Loved Castle finale. I don't just mean the final 5 mins, the other c.37 mins was just great tv.
Missing (no loss)
The River (darn it)
So that is where the series ends?! Lame! I hate cliffhanger series finales! It's like Popular all over again
Oh, and Awake is gone too.
Nikita & Hart of Dixie will be back!
