I watch way too many television shows, I know this. DVR has made keeping up with all my favorites way too easy. An hour show is now a 40 minute show. A half hour show, 20 minutes. Without commercials, you can zip through several episodes in a fraction of the time.
While it's not entirely fun to be left on a cliffhanger all summer for the new season to resume, our schedule is now magically opened up for other things. Like writing! I'm going to try to finish another book this summer (I have a head start, since I wrote 12 chapters on this particular WIP in 2010). But I'm slow, so don't hold me to that goal. ;)
Shows, shows and more shows:
Castle - I admit, I've been only half paying attention to these episodes lately, as the cases are getting more far-fetched and Beckett and I haven't exactly been getting along. The season finale was this week. There were things I liked, things I didn't. . . things I may or may not have squealed over. What did you think about it (the spoiler-free version)?
Bones - The season finale is next week. They're calling it a SEASON finale, not series finale, and I've heard it's been picked up for an 8th season. Yet David Boreanaz has been tweeting things that sound like he's done with the series. This. Will. Not. Do. Upon investigation, the consensus on the interwebs seems to be that he's just talking mess. This. Better. Be. The. Case.
Glee - I stopped watching several months ago. o_O Sad day when the storyline got so out of hand I couldn't even laugh at it anymore. I'll miss you, Darren Criss. One day you must do a cheesy romantic movie where you get the girl. Until then, I'll be waiting (im)patiently.
Smash - I'm very very behind on this (6 episodes?). Is it worth continuing?? Anyone? Bueller?
The Vampire Diaries - This one continues to amaze me. I watch it every week, without fail. It's exciting, it's twisty, it's got me emotionally attached to just about everyone. I'm a little sad the season finale is this week, but they always do a good job with it, so I'm anxious to see how they leave us hanging this time.
The Secret Circle - I honestly don't know why I'm still watching this. Unless they really hook me with the season finale, I probs won't watch next season.
Hart of Dixie - See above. Let's be honest. The only thing that keeps us watching is Wade.
New Girl - This show CRACKS ME UP. <3 Nick. That is all.
Revenge - Holy. Heck. It's like watching a movie every week. So good. #teamjack
So what are you watching these days? Do you get sad around season finale time, or are you glad for the break?
