Each week I have been saying so long, farewell, avidezen, good-bye to my t.v shows,so that the actors, writers, directors and producers can take their vacations during hiatus, which correct me if I’m wrong, seems to last longer every year. I’ve had to say so long to Bones, the cliffhanger they left me with, is Bones and her baby forced to be fugitives from justice. I was happily surprised with Fringe’s season finale, first we got renewed for another season, hooray, and they left us with good news Olivia is pregnant, Walter is going to be a grandpa! Tonight is the season finale of Grimm, last Friday we had the season finale of the Finder, and that one left me stressed, poor Walter was arrested and Willa ran away leaving poor Leo picking up the pieces. One of my favorite new shows this year was Once Upon A Time, their first season finale was riveting and surprisingly simple, Mr Gold/Rumpelstilskin unleashed the last small batch of magic into the town’s well. So these shows are all on our mainstream networks. From now until mid June there is nothing but reruns and reality shows which do not interest me for more than an episode or two. HBO is also going to have their season cliffhanger of Game of Thrones soon, which I am not looking forward to, the only consolation is that True Blood will be starting up again.
House is gone forever, they ended it well, I thought, House and Wilson off together on their motorcycles, never looking back. I’m glad that they left on a high note and didn’t overstay their welcome. I think that both the creators and the audience were ready to say good bye. Right now I’m looking forward to a new summer season of TNT and USA. Both networks have quirky, intelligent, well-written shows almost every night of the week, there is Rizzoli and Isles, Franklin and Bash, White Collar, there is Something Suits and another one about concierge doctor called HankMed in the Hamptons. My memory fails me more and more, you would think that I, Ms t.v. Guide, would be able to remember the names of two shows that I enjoy, oh well, what can you do? Trust me, the shows are pretty good. The one called Suits… is about a high powered law firm and the smartest attorney who has found a protege, who could be his equal one day if only he had gone to law school. He is brilliant but working “fraudulently” for his boss. The other one is about some people’s dream, living out in the Hamptons and having access to a kind, caring, dedicated concierge doctor. This is a feel good show shot out in the Hamptons, so it is visually appealing as well. My hubby, the dear man that he is, worries that my audience will think that all I do is watch t.v, I reassure him that my readers must realize that I do more than just watch t.v. I do other things, right?
