Happy endings.

Though everyone has not ended in a happy way two of my shows ended the last couple of days. First Desparate House Wives had a finale that surpassed a mediocre season. I was some what impressed with it and am interested to see what happens with Lynette. Gabby and her situation might be pretty good too. Honestly, I am never to interested in Susan's story line and I am usually on the fence about Bree's. It was an entertaining episode.

Alias went out with a bang, and though it lacked some of the umph I would have dreamed about after the set up for the first couple years, it was pretty good. I think they went as un supernatural as they could given the Rembaldi set up. I wasn't too shocked in the whole "what it was" but I liked how the ended with Sloan and Jack. I liked the ending with her mother too. They did a good job of setting up for a movie or another tv show at some point.

Bottom line is that both these shows are pretty good and had pretty good endings. Since I don't watch 24 I have to get cought up on that. This summer we are going to consider watching season three and maybe season four. (We've only seen the first two)

I gave up on Desperate Housewives months ago. I am still not sure how they got me to watch the first season.

Alias ended. I am still not sure what all the Rambaldi stuff was about, it seemed like a classic McGuffin. I must admit in the back of my mind, I was hoping everyone would die, but I liked the ending of them on the beach just livin. J. J. Abrams left things set up perfectly for an Alias movie in the future, and if he is like Buffy's Joss Whedon, he will give that to us.

This season's 24 started out great, then they seemed to have things figured out and wrapped up half way through and ended with a little bit of a shocker.

I just can't watch Desperate Housewives. Piccu knows that I gave up on it half way through the first season when the story only progressed about every other show. It is the equivalent of a soap opera except we are frustrated once a week instead of 4 out of 5 days a week.

It's like they are looking for the next great TV show that lasts for 15 years but they are using concepts that are more suitable for a 2 hour movie.

And I don't like it!

I am sorry I missed D.H...my blogging compadre! I was enroute back to my house from a fantastic trip to Boston. Mum and my aunt filled me in, but it is never quite the same.

Do you watch Grey's Anatonmy? Not that season finale did not leave us disappointed at all. My problem for the upcoming new season is that they're moving G.A. to Thursdays when SUpernatural is on. And I love both shows.

My Sunday schedule is King of the Hill, The Simpsons, The Sopranos (when they are on every 3 or 4 years), Law and Order: CI, and Crossing Jordan.

I have boycotted ABC except for Lost because they cancelled Alias.

And when a show's viewers are 2/3 to 3/4 female, as is Grey's, I consider that a chick flick. I already have one soap opera to keep up with, I don't need anymore.

Desperate Housewives certainly is the one show I watch that I could easily do without. It is mediocre at best, after having a decent beginning. I think Bratch hit the nail on the head with the idea that a lot of shows are taking movie worthy ideas and stretching them into shows. Some of these may be best suited for the mini series of the days of old.

I have seen supernatural once and it was ok, but my family is banana's over it.

Housewives is interesting, as in a soap opera way. Almost like an accident...you don't want to look but can't stop looking. The only ones on the show to me, most realistic are Lynette and Tom Scavo.

Grey's is cool as they do base the medical cases on real life medical problems.

Supernatural is just something else. I won't say it is amazing the best tv I have ever seen. But it rocks for me. It is funny, a tad spooky, and just fun (for me and my aunt anyway.)

Some people LOVE it and other's just don't get what the hoopla is over Supernatural. My friend Michelle doesn't understand my fascination with it either.

We all know that the best show on TV is Veronica Mars. No debate necessary. It's smart, funny and it just plain rules. Anyone who says different better be ready for a fight.
