Television Season Finales


This is the time of TV season finales--so far, the ones I've seen have NOT disappointed me!

First up--The Office. Sigh....it was terrific! As usual, the writers managed to surprise me, while having the characters (well, Jim and Pam, at least)act in a way that seemed very real, very natural. Can I just say, once more for the record, that I LOVE Jim and Pam?!?!?!?!?! I really think they are the best TV couple ever. I have no idea how I'm going to wait till next fall to find out what happens next! Still my all-time favorite TV show.

Second--Dancing With the Stars. I've been hooked since the second season (I missed the first season--except for the 'dance off' between John O'Hurley and Kelly Monaco)--everyone in my house loves this show, even the kids! I thought this season was probably the best so far, as least so far as talent goes. By the time it was down to the final four--Ian, Laila, Apolo, and Joey--I was having a hard time picking a winner. Laila was probably my least favorite, but I adore her partner Maksim (he's not only fabulously good looking, but also an amazing dancer!). Apolo was so good, he almost looked like a professional dancer, and Joey was a great dancer AND a great showman. Ultimately, I think the fans chose the correct winner--though in some ways, I enjoyed Joey's performances more than Apolo's, I think Apolo probably had a more difficult challenge, as I assume Joey already had a fair amount of dance experience in N'Sync. All in all, a great season!

Lastly--LOST. Was anyone else as stunned as I was by the revelation at the very end?! And...the character who died (don't want to include spoilers, in case you haven't seen it yet), do you think he's really dead?! I hope not--I loved him! I think it's been a jaw-dropping season of LOST, and the finale was no exception. So, do you think Ben is really a good guy?! I'm starting to think maybe he is. Maybe he wasn't lying (regarding what he told Jack about getting rescued). And GO, SAWYER! I think we need t-shirts that say, "That's for taking the kid off the raft!". Sawyer is such a terrific anti-hero--how can you not love him? Anyway, I can't wait till next season!

Anyone else enjoying the finales? Any favorites so far? Any disappointments? Any theories about the above shows you'd like to share?

I don't watch American Idol--at least, not usually! I did watch last season (the only one I watched), but I was SO angry when Chris Daughtry got voted off that I just couldn't stand to get involved in watching again!

I missed the finale of HEROs and the finale of LOST, though I must admit, I didn't really watch a lot of LOST this season. Only so many hours in the day, and I couldn't carve out enough of them to watch Lost. I even missed the season finale of CSI, my all-time fave show ever!

Don't know if I mentioned Smallville on this blog or not (have mentioned it on others LOL), but that's the only one for me. :) Plenty of people died on it. . . just have to wait to see who comes back or not. LOL

Oh My Gosh! LOST is amazing !So many twists and turns, I always have to re-watch it becuz I miss things the first time around ! Hurley is sooo cool, and charlie & claire are too sweet, Sawyer is the hottest bad boy/big heart/rogue/, um I could go on forever about him...I even own a DHARMA Fish Bisquits shirt that I wear every Wednesday! Sawyer should definitely be the next guy you model one of your chars after kristine......
