TV finale week

With all the finales this week, I just have to comment. After this week, I'll give my new projector and 80+ inch screen a chance to rest. But for now, I'm totally psyched for the finales!

Heroes (Spoiler Alert - if you haven't seen it yet, skip down)
A very satisfying ending. I was on the edge of my seat the whole time (well, not literally. I was in bed). I love that there's no BIG MYSTERY hanging over us until next season. Just a little one. Who is the man who can see Molly when she sees him? Someone worse than Sylar is pretty bad. I loved how all the heroes had to work together at the end, although in my opinion Peter kind of wimped out. He spent all that time studying with Invisible Guy, and for what? So he could learn to control his abilities. But he still couldn't. Don't worry, though, I'm sure he'll be back next season. Nathan might even be, if he just let go of Peter early enough. And speaking of Nathan, I KNEW he was really a good guy. I knew it. Very satisfying ending.
24 - Still in the middle of it - don't spoil it for me!

Dancing With the Stars - No question the winner should be Apolo and Julianne. Wow. Although I was extremely impressed with all the difficult lifts Joey and Kym did. Laila made the Stacy Keibler mistake - completely boring freestyle routine. Yawn. She will be the first to go tonight, if there is any justice.

American Idol - Even though I was sad to see Melinda go last week, I am really looking forward to the showdown between Blake and Jordin. They are both extremely talented, but Blake is something very unique to this show and I can't help but hope he wins. But honestly, just like Elliott told them last week, they're all going to have tremendous careers.

So we'll see what happens. The finale I'm really looking forward to is LOST, of course. I know they're going to leave me with a cliffhanger that will bug me all summer, but that's not going to stop me from watching it!


  1. Heroes was SOOOOOO good!!!!!

    I'm not sure Nathan is a good guy... his last action just EQUALLED out his evilness, so that he's neutral now lol

    I loved how Linderman died... *sadistic giggle*

  2. Here in England, a lot of US shows are concluding in the next two weeks. Lost, 24, Desperate Housewives, Ugly Betty and more.

  3. Jana - I think he really is. I guess time will tell. And yes, that was the perfect way for Linderman to buy it.

    JL - It's probably the same delay here for BBC shows like Robin Hood. The finale of that is this week, too. When I was in England, the only US shows we saw were old ones, nothing new at all.

  4. Yes, very very pleased with Heroes! I agree that Peter and Nathan will be back. I think Dr. Suresh needs to get a little bit more of a clue though - perhaps witnessing what he did woke him up a little bit.

  5. I

    I know Rescue Hero's... that's about it. LOL.

  6. Cheeky - yeah, Mohinder can be a bit clueless.

    Meritt - sorry - I know you don't watch tv. You might want to skip this week's posts...

  7. I don't watch any of those shows, but holy crap that's a big screen!!!!
