    “Ancestors” was an excellent episode, and upped the stakes for everyone. I’m really enjoying the direction this is going. For anyone who thinks Vincent is acting like an ass, I absolutely agree…which means the writers are doing their job. He has a long way to come back, and I hope BATB is around long enough for him to get there.

    I loved the episode on Jan. 2oth. I think BATB is better than it was before and it is exciting to see how Vincent and Cat are connected some way in the past to each other. It is a good show and I hope they will get a 3rd season.

    Another awesome episode on #BATB #Ancestors. Each episode gets more and more exciting. #BATB should be renewed for a 3rd Season. One of the best series on the CW.

    I just don’t get how BATB won Favorite Sci-Fi/Fantasy Show at the People’s Choice this year with the low ratings. Don’t get me wrong I actually like the show but if you look at the other nominated shows, there were 2 others from the CW; Supernatural and Vampire Diaries. Like really, those 2 shows are WAY more popular than BATB, judging from the fan base and the ratings. So how on earth does BATB win an award with the lowest ratings from the CW… what a waste to win an award and only to be cancelled.

      The People’s Choice awards are meaningless, unfortunately. They allow multiple votes from individuals, so it’s really a measure of how rabid the fanbase is. Moonlight won favourite drama in its year, and was still cancelled.

    The way the show is going it’s getting ridiculous. I actually am sick and tired of the plot that is why I am seriously disappointed. Even the original show wasn’t as dramatic or dumb. I am very disappointed. I loved the chemistry between the two in the first season and now it’s completely gone like and Vincent has turned in to a cold jerk and the new girl beast sucks!

      Hate episode 10
      Vincent was such an ass, that i am doubting if there is a way for a turning back
      Starting to think that Cat deserve much better, and Gabe is a very good option

    I cant get enough of #BaTB everytime I watch it. Its like a drug that makes me high! I want more and more! I can’t imagine how life would be without #BaTB. Season 3 Please. Its the best tv series I have ever watched. #CWBaTB

      Zharmained, I couldn’t agree with you more. Fabulous series and I’m addicted to #BATB too. Keeping my fingers crossed #BATB is picked up for a Season 3. I’d be lost without continuing to look forward to each new episode. Love the story line and want to see how VinCat find their way back to each other. Very intelligent drama which is well acted and well written. Love Kristin Kreuk and Jay Ryan and the chemistry they have. J.T. and Tess are great. Look forward to each episode.

  7. zharmaine says

    #BaTB has to be renewed because they deserve it. Im totally addicted to the show and I cant get Im a VinCat fan. I cannot imagine how life would be without #BaTB.

    BABT delete immediately! show ugly and boring with mediocre actors, Ryan JAY has charisma and charm. The rating is too low and the numbers are numbers dear fans!

    Last night’s episode on #BATB #DontDieOnMe was outstanding. It left me wanting more and more of this series. The drama was great and the acting was excellent. This show has everything and is so deserving of a 3rd Season. This show is one of the best series on The CW. So wrong if the show is canceled because another comedy or copy cat series is looking to replace it. Please don’t cancel #BATB – it’s just taking off and let’s see where it’s wings take it. Don’t disappoint the loyal fan base who look forward to each exciting episode on Mondays. Thanks.
