I know, right? It seems like every time I find a show I like, they air 6 or 7 episodes then have to wait almost a year fire it to come back. Meanwhile tv is clef with ridiculous reality sites shows! Thank god the walking dead haven and soa cane back when they did…still. .. having to wait a year for a handful of episodes is insane! !!

Of course I plan on watching Bitten season 2 The show is Awesome ! I just wish there were going to be more than 10 new episodes. I was hoping for at least another 13 episodes. If it were up to me there would be no less than 15 episodes and maybe as many as 18.
