|01:48 pm - Quick finale notes|
Most of my shows have wrapped up their current season (I think NCIS is the only one I'm still waiting on), so here are quick notes on either the finale itself or on the season as a whole. Major spoilers will be cut, and all spoilers/discussion is welcomed in the comments.
House--Huh. Interesting way to end the season. I do love where they're going with the rationality storyline; what a terrifying thing to happen to someone like House, really. Also? I still adore Wilson. *smishes him* I also kind of loved the wedding, that something happy actually arrived for someone in this show. And the cutting back and forth between the wedding and Wilson taking House to the rehab center was brilliant: two different kinds of commitment (okay, 3, since that's a great pun which I only now identified!) juxtaposed.
LOST--Um, wow. Not at all sure where this is going. Also, who knew Sawyer would turn into my favorite character? Not me. Wow, dude, I totally love you. And Locke? I really hope that's still you in some way. :(
Chuck--I'm going to be furious if this show isn't renewed. It's just flat out amazing. *hugs Chuck*
Dollhouse--I thought "Briar Rose" was the best episode to date. The finale itself fell a bit flat for me, mostly because I'd been fascinated with the idea that Alpha had "accreted" a personality over time, and that the same might be happening with Echo. Instead, we're supposed to buy that what happened to Alpha was sheer accident, a technological glitch on Topher's part rather than on Alpha's. Hmmm.
CSI--had a few really solid episodes even after Grissom left. Not sure I'll be watching it again next year, because I do miss him, but...we'll see.
Southland--If you like cop shows, why are you not watching this one? It's wonderful. It did get picked up, by the way.
Bones--The finale caught me completely flat-footed, partly because I tend to forget that Brennan's side job is as a crime novelist. I honestly just don't know what to think of it, but I'm sure I'll be watching again next season, just to see where the ending goes.
Numb3rs--I love this show beyond all reason. They knocked it out of the park with the finale. Seriously. Amazing. Wonderful. *hugs everyone on this show* I can't wait for next season. I don't care that my OTP split up in canon, even, this show is still amazing.
Supernatural--will require a season-evaluating post all its own.
Current Mood: okay
mostly because I'd been fascinated with the idea that Alpha had "accreted" a personality over time, and that the same might be happening with Echo.
Yeah, I was kind of sad about that, too. On the other hand, it saves the progress of the accretion process from being entirely at the whims of the writers, which is what it had been feeling like to me and which I was getting annoyed with.
I suppose that's true. I'm planning to wait and see what they do with this next season--but I'm still annoyed, to be honest.
I'll wait for your SN post then. And thanx for reminding me of Chuck. I lost track of it but i like this little funny show :)
I adore Chuck. It just keeps getting more and more awesome. :) I am so happy it got picked up for a 3rd season!
Numb3rs was amazing this week. I didn't get to see it until this morning before church and I came home and watched it again.
House? I'm iffy on it. I generally don't enjoy the whole get-into-their-fantasies POV in tv shows, but I thought it worked well. The montage when he realized what was true was breath-takingly beautiful.
I want to know who designed Bone's dress at the end of show - that black dress was to die for.
LOST: I <3 this show. I thought it was going in this direction, but I had no idea how it was going to get there until this finale. Jacob? Is in the business of redemption. (Bonus note: the book he was reading was by Flannery O'Connor who also deals heavily with redemptive themes in her stories.)
Numb3rs: I knew he was going to pop the question! Yay!!! And of course she'll say yes; i can't imagine why not... unless next season has some big reveal of Amita's that we're not aware of--some personal hangup or somesuch.
