    I love this show and regularly watched it every Monday. It always made me happier. The cast is very talented especially Sutton. Was looking forward to the next season. I hope they would bring this delightful show back on television. Please!!…

    This show doesn’t need to be dropped now. It is one of the very few that has come along showing imagination. wit, drama, and talent in a mix rarely seen anymore. Enough of the gunfights, chase scenes, filthy language, and people being thrown through plate glass windows! For once the producers try a really nice different tactic, but then back out. Does it all have to be about earnings projections and ratings? Some demonstration of quality now and then like this show goes a long way. With more like this, I might even be tempted to watch prime time shows more frequently, having basically given up thirty years ago!

    Please renew bunheads. So much crap gets renewed. A quality show with good writing, real life situations has to wait to see how the new shows do. A disgrace. No wonder we have such drivel in books, movies and tv.

  4. Linda Alexander says

    Please, Please ,Please renew “BUNHEADS” There are not too many shows on that are geared for teens and appropriate for all. Even ‘Moms and Grandmothers ” enjoy .
    Take some of the other teen movies off which are basically the same format or geard
    toward sex, lies, and inappropriate scenes. Please reconsider!!!!!!! Linda Alexander
