Season Finales!

Boob Tube Babble

Well, it's that time of year again.  Season (and series) finale time.  It's always bittersweet-- usually the last several episodes of the season are the best, but they're also the last for several months.  Boo.

SPOILER ALERT:  If you haven't watched the finales, you might want to stop here...

Grey's Anatomy:  Holy cow, y'all.  What an emotional night.  I was NOT prepared for Lexie to die.  I love her and Mark, and I'm so sad they're not gonna get together.  Could not care less about Teddy though. My friend Julie made a very valid point-- they had to do something that will keep all the other players in Seattle.  Guess this will do it!  All in all, probably my least favorite finale this year.

Modern Family:  Is it just me or did this season get very not funny?  Hope they rebound next year.

Private Practice: OMG... Can we NOT be done with Addison/Sam??  She better pick Jake.

Big Bang Theory:  Loved Howard & Bernadette's wedding!!  Now here's a show that keeps me laughing season to season.

The Good Wife:  I was a little disappointed in the finale.  Kalinda has a secret husband, Alicia doesn't go back home.  Whatever.  Nothing dramatic.  I was surprised how much I ended up liking Peter this season.  I like how they've redeemed him little by little.

HIMYM: Duh, Robin is the bride.  I called that last September.  Even Stripper Quinn couldn't stop the Robin and Barney train.  Although I was surprised at the Ted and Victoria turn of events.  I hated her in season 1, but once she re-appeared earlier this year, I realized that the reasons I found her annoying were why she was perfect for Ted.  However, she's not the mother, so whatever.

New Girl:  This show got SO GOOD this year.  It ended up being one of my favorites after I almost quit watching it in the fall.  I'm glad Nick decided to stay, but it's too soon for him and Jess to get together.  I love Schmidt.  Just throwing that out there.

Yes, I know this pic is from the other week.  But I laughed so hard at this that I couldn't resist.

Parks and Rec: Love the show.  Didn't love the finale.  It was good, not amazing.  Although Tom and Ann crack me up.  And Andy and April.  And Ron.  And Chris.  And Leslie and Ben.

Smash:  Another winner of the finale wars.  I wanted to hate Dev after he hooked up with Ivy, but I kind of felt sorry for him.  Even though he was so stupid.  Ivy knew exactly what she was doing though, and I hate her for it.  It's funny, she was more sympathetic earlier on but ended up being really horrible.  Am I the only one that really likes Derek??  (I loved Jack Davenport on Coupling too, so maybe I'm just projecting...)

Gossip Girl:  Ivy/Charlie/Lola, whoever.  She's annoying.  Both of them.  I'm kind of ready for this show to be over.  It's been good, it's sucked.  Just get Chuck and Blair back together, and we can all move on with our lives.


  1. Ugggggh!! You felt SORRY for Dev?? Whatever... such a jerk ;-) I like Derek too-- Kaaaaaaarin Kaaaaaartwright!!!

  2. Jack Devereaux!? Do I spy a Days fan?!? :) :) love it.

    also-I appreciate the "spoiler alert" is such a pet peeve of mine when bloggers just start posting stuff before I even realize I'm finding stuff out I don't want to know yet!

  3. I'm obsessed with SMASH! And I thought Derek was a jerk the entire season and then I kinda fell in love with him in the finale :-) ahh I can't wait until next year!

  4. I think the HIMYM finale was the best sad is that

  5. Ah!! Love your recaps...we watch so many of the same shows! And agree on so many. Pretending I'm not irritated with Private Practice, I hope she picks Jake!!


  6. Wow you have all my shows on here (Modern Family, Big Bang Theory, Grey's, and Smash), and I totally agree with you on all of them! I felt bad for Dev too... and I SO WANTED LEXIE AND MARK TO JUST BE TOGETHER! And Howard and Bernadette's wedding was just the cutest thing ever. I also agree that Modern Family isn't as good anymore (although I've been mad at them ever since they replaced cute silent baby Lily with annoying toddler Lily, so that could have something to do with it).

    I was really disappointed in Grey's though... it's like they can't get through an entire season without some sort of crazy disaster anymore. Really? A plane crash? That's the best you can do, Shonda Rimes?

  7. I watch very few of these shows regularly. I gave up on Big Bang this winter, not because it wasn't funny, but just because when my husband's not around I tend to lose interest in comedies/sitcoms. The one he and I always watch is Modern Family. However, I completely agree with you! I think the very first season of MF was the best. It's gone a little downhill ever since.

  8. Derek on Smash really grew on me at the end. I felt sorry for Dev too, but for some reason, i just don't think him and Karen are meant to be. Big Bang Theory never lets me down! this season of Modern Family wasn't my favorite. Hope it gets better next season.
