Welcome to a new week of TV!
Finales I'm Psyched for This Week
As usual when finale time comes around, I'm like a kid in a candy store - just spinning in circles, overwhelmed, excited, and I want it all!! Last week had a good amount of finales, but for my TV tastes, this week is what I'm talkin about. As you can see from the list post noted above, there are plenty more finales than I'm about to gush about, but these are my most thrilling ones of the week!
Gossip Girl - Honestly, I'm kind of over Gossip Girl, but it's one of those shows I'm going to keep watching until the bitter end. I recently caught up on the last few episodes and I hate to admit it, but I'm feeling very invested in the Chuck-Blair outcome in the finale tonight. They're the only reason I actually still like the show, and at this point, they've gone back and forth between being together and not enough times that this seems like the ultimate choice. If they don't get back together now, they cannot get back together. Ever. Or at least in the next few seasons. And that, my friends, is just unacceptable in my book. While we're on the subject, check out my top 10 OMFG Gossip Girl scandals and watch the finale tonight!
House - House has been one of my top favs since I caught up marathon-style about two seasons ago, so I can't help but get excited for what looks like an epic House finale. My only concern here is that they gave us reason to doubt if they could carry on from last season's finale as Dr. House went to the mental institution, but since I re-fell in love with the show this past fall for rockin' that whole possibly disastrous storyline, I'm worried that they used all their powers to make that awesome, and have no further plans. Hence, perhaps, the random traumatic accident finale. But I still have faith in this show, so here's hoping this finale will not just be a big accident-focused finale to distract from the fact that they have no exciting plot to work with for a big finale.
90210 - Ooo! Ooo! Is it finally time to wrap up the Jasper storyline? Tell me it's so, CW!! I have liked this show more than I planned to this season, so I'm very much looking forward to some exciting finale developments around my fav couple, Adrianna and Navid, plus I CANNOT wait for the weakest link of this season, Jasper, to just go away, but hopefully with a splash that will leave us hanging on what will happen to Annie. Finally.
Modern Family - I. love. Modern Family. In the case of a half hour comedy that's not plot-driven, it's hard to look forward to a finale because it just means the end of hilariousness for three months, and not a big sendoff since it's hard for them to make much todo about silliness. But I feel like the last few episodes of this one have been especially strong, and really every episode for its entire first season has been strong, so while the finale probably won't pull out any shockers, I'm looking forward to a little extra finale-style effort that will definitely be sitting on my DVR for re-watching as long as possible!
NBC Thursday Comedies - Usually I would just say I'm looking forward to The Office finale, but considering the letdown Office has been since Jim and Pam's wedding, I've been only enjoying it as part of the NBC Thursday comedy line-up. Right now my favorite is actually Parks & Recreation with 30 Rock a little bit in its own realm, but perhaps a second at this point. Community has surprised me with some great episodes recently too, making the four show line-up all worth looking forward to as a whole this week to see how they round out their overall fun seasons.
Lost - Sunday, Sunday, Sunday!! Don't forget, Losties! While this one still has a new episode inbetween now and its finale, I'm focused on the finale since they seem to be saving all the really big stuff for the final, giant episode. I want answers, people. Do you think we'll get any? Any way about it, I'll be thrilled just to see how this entire TV phenomenon turns out... as long as it's not all a dream.
What finales are you most looking forward to this week?
