Since I don’t think that anyone really wants to read about the status of my laundry, what I had for breakfast this morning (Poached eggs on toast. Made them myself. :))or the suspicion that I may have an abscessed tooth, I thought I would write some reactions to different season finales on TV.
***DON’T READ IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED THESE!***
Personally, I think that they need to rename this show “WTF?!!!”. Seriously, I don’t think that there has even been a show on TV that has taxed my brain this much. I am a random and chaotic person that gloms onto weird, random facts and so I keep up with the show better than most but sometimes I feel like I did watching the bizarre movie, “Jacob’s Ladder”. (i.e-I have no idea what the freak is going on most of the time).
Things that PISS ME OFF:
They keep introducing MORE CHARACTERS without resolving a lot of the questions that we have. Seriously, seriously pissing me off.
Juliette’s simper. I want to bitch-slap her a lot.
Kate always, always, ALWAYS being bad ass and “Saving the day”.
The blond actress that played a guard down in the looking glass has always annoyed me. She played “Carrie” on “Days of our lives” a decade ago and there is something about her jawline that just makes me hostile. Bitchy, I know. Still…I wasn’t too sad when she bit it. I don’t think I could have watched her and her jaw for a whole season. Ben’s googly eyes are difficult enough.
They still have not explained what the hell a slaving ship is doing in the middle of a freaking forest.
Things I am resigned to:
I knew that Charlie was going to bite it. The actor wants to do more movies so it was inevitable that he wouldn’t stick around until the end of the show.
I think that everyone on the island is going to be related and I just have to accept it and the fact that we will find out things like the guy with a patch worked in Jack’s hospital as a janitor after fleeing Europe because he knocked up Charlie’s mom and is really his father. You know, stuff like that is all good on the island.
Things that I like:
Hurley saving the day!!!!! They seriously neglected him this season and it was sad.
Jin and Sun.
Rose and Bernard reappearing. They are high on my “Favorite” list. “You’re a dentist, not Rambo.”
THE FRENCH WOMAN MEETS HER DAUGHTER!!!! I so HOPED for this but didn’t expect it to happen. Although it was slightly disconcerting that the first thing she says is “Help me tie him up”. I tried not to have it go to the giggly-kinky realm, but alas…it did. Barf.
I loved how they were showing Jack in the future the whole time, we just didn’t know it.
Seeing WALT! I really hope we see him and Michael again. What happened to the dog???
I don’t know about the rest of you, but I sincerely enjoyed.each.fist.stuck.in.Ben’s.pop-eyed.face. I was sad when it was over. I’m terrible, I know. Sigh.
I suppose I will keep being tortured through the rest of the seasons until they wrap up in 2010. I just hope I survive that long without sticking a fork in my eye. I guess if I do, though, I can write that guy and ask where he buys his eye-patches.
CSI radically changed how they shoot and produce their show. It is way more “Arty” than in previous seasons. I have mixed feelings about this. The original CSI is my favorite. I feel it is more accurate than the others (Though I would not quantify them as accurate portrayal’s of a real crime lab by any stretch of the imagination.)
I had mixed feelings about how there was one storyline that continued through the season. I tend to like shows that are contained into one segment and CSI was really great about that until this season. I do like the miniature storyline, but having it continue for so long has been a bit annoying. I think that the cliffhanger of Sarah out in the desert and Grissom with his throat cut is AWESOME. I can’t wait to tune in in the fall.
Jonathan hates this show above all others. He would rather watch “The Ghost Whisperer” with me, and that is saying A LOT. Even I think that the character of Horatio Cane is beyond ridiculous: Hostage negotiator, CSI, Sheriff, Narcotics expert, Bomb Expert, Head of SWAT, Nuclear Expert, Missing persons detective, social worker, and psychoanalyst and savior of small children all wrapped up in someone who wears longsleeved black clothing year-round IN MIAMI.
I don’t know why they go so over the top with this show, but they do. I don’t know why I keep watching it, but I do.
My favorite aspect of the season finale was an aerial shot of Horatio Cane standing on top of a skyscraper tower (Who the hell knows why) with the wind blowing through his red locks and heroic music playing in the background. Brought a tear to my eye.
CSI: New York
I am really just beginning to watch this show. All I really have to say to it is, “Meh.”
I just started watching this show really recently. In fact, my first episode was where Izzy wakes up next to George so mainly I have been muttering “WTF?” and trying to read synopsis’s and watch back episodes where I can. Here are observations from a newbie:
Meredith pisses me off. No one is that cute. Dreamy needs to McDUMP her.
I like Izzy and George. I know, I am in the minority here, but they seem better suited than Callie and George. Of course, it could be that Callie scares me to death so I could be biased.
I think that whole “Take the chief job back” was STUPID. LAME. DUMB.
McDreamy hitting on Meredith’s sister was STUPID. LAME. DUMB.
I heart Christina. I don’t know why.
The ending had me confused. I couldn’t tell if Christina was happy or really upset that she had been dumped at the alter. AND WHERE did Meredith’s reaction “It’s so over” come from ?????
Alex should date Ava.
Addison’s spin off is probably for the best. I have a hard time watching her on this show, but I did like the preview for her new series.
Meredith’s dad sucks.
Am I the only one who thinks that George failed his exams on purpose so that he wouldn’t have to leave Izzy and go to Mercy West???
The whole “Baby Rant” was really desperate. Big mistake to go there, which of course, means that they WILL.
I really like this show and I’ll be watching it in the fall.
I love all of the Bravo reality shows. There is no show like “Project Runway” of course, but the spin off’s have been pretty good. I HATE the hosts of this series, though. HATE THEM.
Tabitha and Tyson shouldn’t have been eliminated. They were by far the most talented.
I’m a Dr. Boogie fan, but was really uncomfortable with him hogging the set on the photo shoot. He needed to go. His son must have been before he figured out he was gay. THAT was a shock.
I still think that that chick seriously thinking that her HEDGE CLIPPERS were the next essential “HAIR TOOL” needs some serious, serious help.
Over all? Daisy should walk away with it.
My new favorite Bravo offering about the lives of trainers in a Beverly Hills gym. Jackie Warner, the owner, is just really intriguing, plus she has a super interesting life as a top Hollywood trainer that is from a Mormon family and is gay. It’s been pretty fascinating to watch.
GIRLS NEXT DOOR
I should be horrified and turn my eye from watching a reality show about an 80-year-old guy and his three blonde, giggling girlfriends that could be his grandchildren and yet, I don’t. It’s kind of like watching a car crash. I just can’t turn away.
They all act like they have three brain cells between them. They hate it when people “Assume they are stupid bimbo’s”. Well, it may help if you didn’t, uh, act that way, then. You know? I really don’t care if you are or you aren’t, but if you’re going to ACT like a bimbo, dress and speak like a bimbo, and (Especially in Kendra’s case) come off like you have been beaten with the stupid stick one too many times, then you might as well embrace the title and not get pissed when people assume, you know?
That said, I’m still watching, darn it.
THE GHOST WHISPERER
I don’t really know why I watch this. Jennifer Love Hewitt has pissed me off since “Party of Five”. There is no WAY someone living on the revenue from an antique store and a paramedic salary could have her house, car(s), and WARDROBE. No, no, NO WAY.
I was sad to see the level Julian Sands has fallen to. He guest starred on the last episode. The plot lines get more and more weird and cheesy…sort of “Touched by an Angel-esque”. There are times I expect her to speak in an Irish accent and light up like a Christmas tree.
The plusses are that it is a “Pretty” show, which I like, and that the guy that played Biff in “Back to the Future” has a supporting role.
I may or may not watch in the fall.
I want to marry Joe DuBois. Sorry, Jon but there it is. I’ve loved the actor ever since he played a small character in the movie “The Pelican Brief”. He makes a video taped statement that nails the bad guys and has the sweetest goodbye on there to his family.
He still rocks in “The Medium”. Seriously, above everything this cute character won my heart and loyalty to this show. I freaking love their relationship. In fact, I can see why she is nuts about him, but I can’t really say the same for his draw to her. I try to figure out what he gets out of the relationship besides perpetually running their kids to school, picking them up and getting woken up at god-awful hours to discuss her dreams. Maybe it’s just excitement for a aeronautical engineer, who knows?
I totally, totally love this show, though and can’t wait to find out what will happen now that she has been “Outed”.
LAW AND ORDER (ALL OF THEM)
There really wasn’t a whole bunch of shakeup on the regular season. I know that Dick Wolf is just trying to make it two more seasons so that he can surpass “Gunsmoke” in longevity. I am still trying to adjust to the new assistant DA. The last time she was in a series she played Super-Hero Horatio Cane’s airheaded, dying wife, Marisol on CSI: Miami. So, I’m trying to adjust to her short hair and brain cell count.
I hope Fred Thompson stays away from the Presidential race and continues on Law and Order. I loved Adam Shiff, but I really like the way he plays DA. I miss Lenny. :(
This finale PISSED ME OFF. I wanted to seriously hurt someone. If comeuppance doesn’t happen somewhere next season, I will be SO pissed off.
They are moving this show to USA. I’m ok with that. I love this show. Vincent Denofreo is just uber talented and I am so freaking happy that Chris Noth came back to play Mike Logan. I heart them both.
This show took me awhile to warm to, but I have. I love it. The characters are very quirky and fun and the plot lines aren’t boring. I love the goth lab-chick, Abby. She was the only person/character on the planet that drank more caffeinated soda than me. However, SHE GAVE IT UP this season, which gave Jon a lot of “Well, ABBY gave up soda…” yada yada yaday. Maybe I should just be a chain smoker so that he will bitch about my soda consumption less. :)
The season ended with my least favorite character (Lauren Holly as the Chief) finding out that her father isn’t really dead like she has believed since 1995. Wowsers. I have no idea what will happen, but I plan on watching next season.
WTF? This show is really pushing it. The whole JD/Kim line has ALWAYS annoyed me. I used to hate Keith and Elliot together, but I totally love them now and will be really sad if they screw it up. I feel like there hasn’t been enough Dr. Cox in this season and I am still wondering what the hell is with Jordan’s upper lip. It just looks odd to me.
I loved the musical that they did this year, though.
Anyway…We’ll see. I kind of think that next season should be the last. It is a show that is almost DOA.
MY NAME IS EARL
Loved it. Sometimes too gross/painful to watch, but over all thought that the ending was awesome. I loved how the Crabman’s hair got flat and her lawyers Deaf Interpreter, Doug was HILARIOUS.
My favorite season finale of the bunch! From Pam’s confession to the debacle of the New York interviews, “Goodbye, Kelli Kippur” and Pam being Dwight’s “Super Secret Assistant” was HILARIOUS. I love that Pam and Jim are finally going out and that the temp got the New York job and dumped Kelli. Jan’s boob job and Michael selling his condo on EBAY are just other pluses.
Cannot WAIT until fall for this one.
So, there we are. I don’t think I left anything out (But I’m really brain dead lately, so who knows.) Feel free to chime in with your opinions!
