    i know krysten ritter (the *****) from going to school with her in northeast pennsylvania and she is a real ***** in real life, and she got her start as a model because she went to a modeling scout agency at our local mall and was picked. she was a smelly kid and a loner in highschool, and she is still a loser in my eyes, and still a ***** because i tried to talk to her on twitter and she is to good to remember where the hell she came from, so thats why i will not be watching the B in apt 23

    • Scott says

      So let’s get this straight, you’re calling her a loner, a smelly kid, and a loser in High School and she didn’t respond to you on twitter. Wow, I wonder why? And now that she’s more successful then you’ll ever be you won’t watch the show, but you’ll go on a blog and complain about her. Sounds like you’re the *****.

    Don’t trust the ***** is an awesome show. It’s the most original series ABC has had since Drew Carey revived the network. However the name alone is anti-Disney and doesn’t keep with the standards the network has displayed in the past. It’s a show that belongs on HBO or even FX. My suggestion to ABC is not to cancel the show but move it to another of their networks or sell it outright to a chanel that isn’t afraid to say *****. Don’t stop production of the series for a moment. Six episodes is not enough to judge the talented actresses that keep it true to life. I believe it is too real and raw for Mickey and Donald and Tom the vouyeristic reality show host. It’s sad that fictional shows like ***** have taken a backseat to repetitive gossipy drivel they call Reality TV. Doesn’t all the texting and tweeting and facebooking satisfy the publics need to be involved in other people’s lives? DOWN WITH REALITY TV!!!! We all already know shifty backstabbers. Do we really need more?

    I’ve liked this show everytime I watched it. It’s different, not generic like most network shows. So, it’s just a matter of time before it’s cancelled. I rarely watch “the big 3″, so I forget it’s on. I usually remember it Tuesday nite, which doesn’t help. Or Wed, after 10pm. Do they ever publicize this? I hope it’s renewed, and given a better timeslot.

    I was looking for the listing & couldn’t find it ! Are you sure it isn’t cancelled already?

    I’m probably gonna be the “Odd one out” on here, because it seems that most people like it, but I saw the first two episodes last week and I honestly DID NOT LAUGH… ONCE. I’m serious. And I don’t know if anyone else saw the second ep (SPOlLER ALERT), but what was up with her being attracted to a baby? That was creepy. I won’t be watching this.

    • Wayne says

      She wasn’t attracted to the baby…she had just asked herself what the rush to date was and seeing the baby made her realize she needs to date to marry the right guy to have a baby.

    Come on, someone say the word, I’ve seen promos where they just say ‘b’ and everywhere else they just put a ‘b’, why can’t anyone say the word?

    • says

      Jeremy Rynek » As I recall, they say ***** in the episode but, as in the case of GCB, I guess the network decided they didn’t want it in the title. Perhaps they felt like having the word in the title might limit where and when they could advertise it.
