    I LOVE this show, I love Krause and Enos together. They did a great job on recasting for Kieren and the Zoe part. When I saw this was Shonda’s show I knew it had to be good. I hope it stays on a long time. Enos is such a good actress, she is so pretty and I love her voice.

    I totally agree with Jessalyn & Betsy!! This guy Krause is a big DUD and totally unbelievable as a suave con man. I love Mireille since The Killing. She will be wasted in this sure flop.

  3. they replaced damon dayoub with him?

    Worst recasting EVER. I was interested. Not anymore. You really needed to go the standard White Guy 10 Years Older route? Gross. He’s not even attractive.

    Shona’s soapiness is beneath you.
