I don’t know about you but my TiVos are very angry with me. They’re working hard to record everything and I’m doing my best to keep up. But sometimes my TiVos act out and delete things before I’ve watched them or don’t change the channel to the correct channel. TiVo says its on ABC but it’s really on public access television. They are particularly fond of public access TV for some reason. Perhaps they want to see a real life version of “Parks & Recreation.”
It’s funny how there is so much on now and in less than a month, many of our favorite shows will be on a long summer’s nap. Here are the things I need to see before the end of the season.
Jin and Sun reunion on “Lost:” There are many many things we need to see happen on “Lost” before the final music fade out on May 13 but this is the one I’m looking forward to the most. My favorite couple has spent the season in two different time zones and with not nearly enough screen time. (How cruel to have Jin live but then have him barely on for most of the season). The most emotional moment for me last season was when Sun flew away as the boat Jin was on exploded. I’m kind of expecting their reunion to top that.
Ryan to get his comeuppance on “Brothers & Sisters:” Given the panic I was in last year about this time on the Rebecca is not a Walker situation, I have to say this storyline has played out fairly well. Sure they taunted me with the possibility that Rebecca and Ryan could date (all together now, “ewwww”) but that crisis seems to have been successfully avoided. Ryan has some serious anger management issues. He’s mad at his dad and taking it out on the Walker siblings. As ridiculous as it is that Sarah would suddenly give him a job at Ojai and shares of stock, it does set him up for some good drama. I’m also toying with the idea that he could be a total fraud and that the real Walker sibling could still be out there. Just throwing it out there. But I don’t know how many faux Walkers the show can take.
Tony is revealed to still be a good guy on “24:” Come with me into my land of denial where it rains dark chocolate, where TiVo never makes a recording mistake and you can watch new episodes featuring Veronica Mars in the FBI. It’s such a happy place. Okay it’s much more likely that we will get a Tony/Jack showdown before the season is out but I hope it at least includes a better understanding of what is going on with Tony and how he reached such a nefarious place.
What do you need to see before the season is over? Talk about it below.
A Fun Link
I was out to dinner on Wednesday night and I missed the “American Idol” results show. It wasn’t until I woke up Thursday morning that it occurred to me, “Huh, I never checked to see who got kicked off ‘Idol.'” I’m just not all that interested now that Anoop is gone. He was my favorite.
