Season Finales

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?


  1. Wow, we have similar tastes. I stopped watching Glee as well - story lines seemed to come out of the blue. Smash is kind of like a guilty pleasure. It's not that great, but I'm totally hooked. And I love Vampire Diaries, New Girl and Revenge.

  2. Ahh, I SO squealed over Castle! And I love Smash, so I say keep watching. And Vampire Diaries! Can't wait to see who Elena picks (please be Damon, please be Damon...). Basically, this post made me so happy. :)

  3. I gave up on Glee this season too. It became too after school special for me. I think it forgot how to be a smart show and started writing your typical teen show plotlines, which lots me. The first season is the best.

    I'm behind on New Girl-my DVR messed up and stopped recording it, so I'll catch up this summer. But it cracks me up!

    I was interested in Smash, but I gave up on it too because I got behind. Maybe I'll pick it up again?

    And I totally need to watch Revenge-everyone keeps saying how awesome it is!!

  4. I so know what you mean about hating that the shows are over, but happy to have the writing time:) Out of your shows I only watch Vampire Diaries....LOVE IT!!! I also watch the Voice, American Idol and Fringe. So many good ones!

  5. Lets see, Castle is my love- sorry you grew apart. My hubs and I watch it religiously and I wish it would be on all summer!

    Glee- yea, we watch it too but it does get annoying...

    We watch Game of Thrones right now and are loving it- no season finale on that one yet.

    We watch How I Met Your Mother but was not able to keep up with it this season (we don't have cable- just hulu and netflix and didn't realize they don't keep the whole season, just the past 3 episodes so we got behind and now we have to wait for it to come out on dvd).

    My daughter and I watched The Voice, American Idol, and Biggest Loser- all of which were fun etc.

    We'll be watching America's got talent and So you think you can dance this summer too I think.

    I have a list of shows to watch this summer while I'm home with the new baby and Vampire Diaries is one, Sherlock another (oh and I can't WAIT until Downton Abbey comes back), Dr. Who, Big Bang Theory, 24, possibly a few others I can't remember...I didn't actually write this "list" down and I really should, lol.

  6. I haven't seen any of these shows. My DVR is already too packed. I usually end up watching shows online long after they were first aired.

    I feel shocked and saddened when a show I love has a finale. I feel like the wait is forever to see what happens next.

  7. Psych and The Office are my two favorites. And I'm always sad to see them end but it's good for me to have a break.

  8. Ha ha! I had no idea any of these shows existed. Is that bad? (Well, except Glee - I have heard of that one and watched an episode or two long, long ago.) Can we still be friends even though I'm not a TV person? :)

  9. I still haven't seen the show finale of DESPERATE HOUSEWIVES from this Sunday. Hope it was glorious!
