Going Cross-Eyed

All 3 of my DVR’s were at 90-95% capacity (it doesn’t help that I have all the Boardwalk Empires and The Kennedys still on there) so I wasn’t kidding about them smoking!!   My husband and I spent our entire Sunday doing laundry and watching TV.  We started at 10am and didn’t stop until after midnight.  14+ HOURS OF TV WATCHING!!!   And I still have so much more to watch.  It’s crazy!!!

I finally got to see the finales of The Good Wife, Supernatural, Blue Bloods, HIMYM, Mike & Molly, Community, Criminal Minds, and The Mentalist and caught up on 6 episodes of Glee leading up to the finale tonight.  I still have to get to Grey’s, Private Practice, Gossip Girl, The Vampire Diaries and Nikita.  Needless to say, I have A LOT of reviewing to do.  I am going to get to all of them so please be patient and I will get them up as fast as I can.  Of course being away, my real job also has to factor into the catching up as well, but with the holiday weekend coming up, I should get caught up by then!

So keep checking back and I will get these up as quickly as possible!!

Back to Normal….Almost

We are driving back from our vacation. I hate leaving and it always goes so fast but I am ready to get home and burn through these season finales!! I can smell my DVRs burning from I-95.

Some of the priorities are going to be The Good Wife, Supernatural, The Mentalist, HIMYM, and Grey’s Anatomy. I have about 6 The Vampire Diaries and 11 Nikitas to get through so I probably won’t get to them until next weekend. But I hope to have most of those big ones up on Sunday…by the latest Tuesday.

I really appreciate everyone’s patience during this VERY busy TV week!

Some CBS Finale Spoilers!!!

So I was on my other favorite TV site today and found a very interesting post….CBS season finale dates and some quick spoilers on each.  Some were ok and not so spoilery but some were slightly eye-opening.   I’m not going to go through all of them since I don’t watch all the shows they listed.  So I am only going to touch on the shows I watch.   Read at your own risk!!!!!

Blue Bloods (May 13): When a drug bust points to the Blue Templar group, Frank and the fam take matters into their own hands.

Ugh.  I thought we were through this all this Blue Templar nonsense.  Maybe we can hope that this will be the last episode involving the BT and that next season (wishful thinking) we can move on from that and get some real storylines going for Jamie.   But I really hope BB comes back because the show is terrific.

Survivor: Redemption Island (Sunday, May 15): Eight castaways head into the two-hour finale; one-hour reunion show follows.

I don’t know how I feel about EIGHT people being around on the final night.  That’s what I haven’t liked about this RI format…too many people still with the chance for the million dollars.  I don’t know how this is going to play out but I am still rooting for my top 3, in  this order, to win:   Boston Rob, Grant, Andrea.

How I Met Your Mother (Monday, May 16): Let’s flash forward to when Ted is the best man at the wedding where he meets his future wife.

While it’s great that Ted will be at this wedding meeting his future wife, I’m still curious whose wedding this is.  I don’t think it’s Punchy’s because it looked like Marshall and Lily were in the wedding party.  Now it is HIMYM so it wouldn’t be completely crazy for something wacky to happen and Marshall and Lily are in the wedding for some reason.  But it’s getting harder and harder to believe that this is Robin and Barney’s wedding.  Although, again, stranger things have happened…like the goat ending up in their apartment!  Now do you think we will actually meet the wife as well or will she be in the background?  I can also see a scenario where we have been told Ted meets his future wife at the wedding and the show wraps with him meeting a young woman and fade to black, end of season.  This will be a total red herring.  I still think it’s too early for us to meet the mother.  Maybe I’m wrong (I’m wrong a lot!!!)   But I think we are still a season or two away from meeting her.   And I hate to say it, but a large part of me thinks, “who cares who the mother is” at this point.  I have become so invested in everyone and their friendships that it really doesn’t matter to me who Ted ends up with.  

Mad Love (May 16): Kate’s ex puts her romance with Ben in jeopardy; Connie and Larry’s fake date gets real, yo.

I will give you a minute to clean up the soda, beer, or fuzzy navel you just spit at your computer screen because I am still watching Mad Love.  I can hear it now (“this idiot doesn’t watch NCIS but she watches Mad Love….what is wrong with her?”)  I watch it because Sarah Chalke, Judy Greer, and Tyler Labine are in it and I REALLY want a comedy to stick for them.  And I am so happy to see Chalke back on my TV (although she is playing a slightly toned down version of Elliott Reid without all the neuroses.)  Plus, it’s something to watch after HIMYM.

Mike & Molly (May 16): Someone asks Mike if he intends to marry Molly. Homina-homina-homina

Such a cute show.  Of course Mike and Molly are going to get married!!!  Are you kidding me?  Just not this season or probably next season.   But it will happen.

The Good Wife (May 17): As Alicia must set aside her beef with Kalinda in the rush to prove a client’s innocence, she must also wonder: Is now a good time to make a run at Will? Also: Kelli Giddish (Chase) continues her run as an associate from Kalinda’s past.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO it is NOT a good time to take a run at Will.  You know when it would be a good time to take a run at Will?   Ah…NEVER!!!!  Why can’t Alicia just be alone?  If she can’t work things out with Peter (which I’m hoping she can) why does she have to run to Will?  Ugh…no.  Alicia has just been slammed into a brick wall, run over by a truck, and then set on fire.  The last thing she needs is to jump into bed with another creep.  Alicia needs Alicia time.  But I am busting at the seams with anticipation over next week’s episode.   It should be epic!!!

Criminal Minds (Wednesday, May 18): Hotchner hints as impending changes at work; JJ (A.J. Cook) rejoins the team!

JJ is back!!!   This is not too ground breaking considering it was announced a few weeks ago that the network finally came to their senses and contracted her back!!!  And it seems from the last episode that Strauss may be out for an extended period of time and Hotch may be getting promoted as a result?  I never liked the character of Strauss but I hope she is ok and I do kind of like the nastiness she brought because it’s always good to have a real antagonist inside your department.  But maybe those are the “changes” Hotchner is alluding to.  One could hope that it also means Agent Seaver will be transfered to another department!

The Mentalist (May 19): In this two-hour finale, Red John’s CBI mole is revealed, and Patrick Jane finally meets Red John.

WHAT!!!!  This was the spoiler that made me spit out my fountain coke over my computer screen…sorry iMac!   I am SHOCKED this happening this season.  Maybe because my Red John/ CBI mole theory is out the window.  Remember earlier when I said I was wrong a lot?   This is probably another one of those times.  I was always under the impression that Red John would be the so-so reveal while the CBI Red John mole would be the biggie.  Therefore, it wouldn’t happen until the end of the series.  However, my theory could still be correct.  Maybe the CBI mole is revealed to US the viewer but not to Patrick Jane or anyone else.   Also, could Jane meet Red John and not know it’s Red John, but we do!   I hope not.  I like the mystery of who is Red John.  For me, it hasn’t gotten old yet like Booth and Brennan not getting together.  I’m still completely into the Red John mystery because the show has handled it so well and I don’t think I want to know who Red John or the mole is yet.  I can take for learning one but not both.  However, it would be fascinating to watch with us knowing who everyone is but Patrick Jane and other CBI members not knowing.  Who do you think the CBI mole is?  At this point, I am going with Grace Van Pelt!  You heard it here first!!!!  Which means it won’t be her.  Ha!

Any thoughts on the spoilers above?  Sound off below!

Season/Series Finale Dates

We are getting to that point in the 2010/2011 TV viewing season….season and series finale time.  I know, I shed a tear myself when I think about it.  It’s hard to believe.  It went so fast.  Espcially since this is my first season blogging, it’s hard to believe that the network season is almost over!!   What to do all summer?  Actually, there are some shows I need to catch up on (Boardwalk Empire, I know you are burning up my DVR) and possibly watch on DVD (I’m determined to catch up to Mad Men by the time S5 starts next year.  Also I have been wanting to try Psych and Friday Night Lights.)  But until then, we need to say good-bye to our season long shows and some will be permanent good-byes.  Like the renewal tracker, I will try to keep this up to date.   I think this has all the shows but if I am missing something, let me know!!

This should be every show.  The three shows I noticed that I haven’t been able to find any information on are Body of Proof, Mr. Sunshine, and Happy Endings.  Since Cougar Town returns April 18th, I assume sometime this week or next will be Mr Sunshine’s final episode of the season.  Body of Proof has only been on for 3 episodes and Happy Endings is premiering tonight.  So I assume they won’t end until early June.  And if you don’t see shows like Harry’s Law or Off the Map, it’s because their season already ended.  But like I said, if something glaring is missing, let me know.  And remember this is network shows only so don’t ask me why The Killing or Secret Diary of a Call Girl aren’t on here please!
