Because the Finales Have to Come Eventually

I hate this time of years. Yeah the weather is better and there are trees full bloom but then also all my shows end for the year. I am not a fan of this, if I could I would have my shows go all year long and never end. But they must happen, I suppose, so here are my thoughts if you care.

Desperate Housewives: The show has taken desperate to a whole new level. I don’t care like I used to but I will most likely watch it until the end now that I’m invested. It’s a damn good thing I don’t have to pay for each show separately.

House: I really expected a cliff hanger, like they usually do and it just kind of whimpered at the end. I mean in one way it was sweet and had to happen eventually but it was just too easy and had so little umph to it. At the very least if you are going to go that direction I want it to knock my socks off. You know?

Modern Family: It was funny, that’s all I expect from them and I got that in spades.

Cougar Town: I think they got her together with that guy (too lazy to look up his name) too quickly, just my opinion but then I’m from the Rachel and Ross generation (did I just say that?).

How I Met Your Mother: Was I the only one who cringed every time Lily said “put a baby in my belly?” Please, don’t put anything in my belly but cheesecake and bagels. Oh and am I the only one totally excited to actually see Barney’s doppelganger?

Two and a Half Men: I simply just don’t care anymore, which makes me sad because I really used to love this show and it’s jumped the shark.

The Big Bang Theory: I’m loving the Mayim Bialik (Blossom) storyline and I love that they are both asexual. That is the only way any kind of romantic pair-up will work for me with Sheldon.

I feel like I’m missing a finale but I can’t think of what it would be. I am looking forward to my summer shows like Mad Men, Weeds and maybe My Boys…if that is even still around.

Now I need a new show for the summer and am taking suggestions. Im thinking maybe The Mentalist or Breaking Bad or maybe something like NCIS. Maybe we’ll try them all out. No, I don’t want to watch It’s Always Sunny in Philidelphia. I can just tell from a mile away this is not my kind of show.

    Are you the only person in the world not gushing over the finale of Lost? Besides me, that is?

      @Grant: One of the very few.

    When I saw someone suggest It’s Always Sunny on Facebook I thought to myself how much you’d hate that show

      @Amanda: See, you understand me. I hate when people suggest shows or movies to me that are obviously not my taste.

    I love both NCIS & The Mentalist. I recommend both!

    I’m loving the Sheldon story line as well!

      @B: I’ve been considering NCIS for a while with all you tweet about it 😉

    For me, HIMYM just hasn’t been as good as it used to be and the finale furthered that belief. I actually fell asleep at one point.

    Modern Family is sheer brilliance and has stepped in to take the comedy reigns where both HIMYM and The Office seem to be falling short.

    I still love BBT, but feel like the ending of that episode was too abrupt. I really was hoping for more Mayim Bialik in this episode. Sure we’ll see more of her next season, but I wanted more now! Damn.

      @kapgar: Yeah I have to agree, HIMYM has lost a little bit of something. I still enjoy it but it’s freshness isn’t there anymore, which is normal but then BBT still has it. I think HIMYM gets thrown off by all the character plots, they work best when it’s just episode to episode, if that makes sense. Yes, I too wanted more Blossom.
