    I love Reba’s acting…and I tend to enjoy Cherry’s work. But the description of this series does NOTHING for me!! I am just not feeling it! If it turns into a quirky comedy/drama like his past shows I will be on board. I love the thought of 5 foot nothing Reba strutting around wearing attitude and a Sherriff outfit!! It tickles me!!

    The Salem strangler? He can do anything, LOL. He was great on HEROS…so, yeah, he will be outstanding.
    I think he lives on the Vineyard…have seen him around quite a few times.

    I LOVE this man from Heroes… hasn’t he aged … ALL that

    dang!

    I just do not , think; this show is going to work… especially with Reba Mcentire

    she relies heavily on laugh track… that pause and lets get too cutesy cutesy with her dimple.

    that’s not acting… it’s delivering lines… cue the laugh track… pause for affect and pat yourself on the back

    her voice alone… is not enough … there’s nothing dramatic about her

    Jack Coleman, on the other hand…. delish

    this show is going to bomb, Marc Cherry

    As long as it doesn’t turn into a Desperate Housewives knock-off I’m good.

    I take my soaps seriously. I hate when my soap becomes a dramedy.
