The Office Series Finale Watch: Farewell, Dunder Mifflin
Creed summed it up beautifully at the end of tonight's series finale of The Office… and then he was arrested. But that's another matter. One of the things I've loved so much about The Office was the way it captured the humor and spirit of the mundane. For those who aren't working their dream jobs, going to work every day can be a drag. When the work itself isn't exciting, it's the people that get you through the day. The Office captured that perfectly in the way it featured characters who were, for all intents and purposes, average - for the most part.
American Idol Season 12 Winner Is Crowned
Almost from the start, it seemed like this season of American Idol was destined to be a female-led season. The male contestants that managed to make the finals didn't hold a candle to some of the talent on the female side. One by one, the guys dropped out, with Lazaro Arbos managing to hold on as far as the Top 6 before being sent home, leaving five women to move forward. By that point, I would've called the competition for Angie Miller to win. Not only was her vocal talent holding up against her competitors, but she had great stage presence.
Supernatural Watch: Season 8, Episode 23 - Sacrifice
Season 8 of Supernatural began with a straightforward mission for the Winchesters: close the gates of Hell forever. In the 22 episodes leading up to “Sacrifice” we’ve seen Sam undertake two risky trials that have pushed him close to the verge of death. At the very least, killing a hellhound and rescuing an innocent soul from Hell have made Sam completely miserable heading into the third trial, which as we learned two episodes ago, is curing a demon.
Game Of Thrones Watch: Season 3, Episode 7 - The Bear And The Maiden Fair
Game of Thrones is really on a roll. The last three episodes of HBO's fantasy series have been on par with or better than any that have come before and the third season as a whole is shaping up to be the most entertaining one yet. "The Bear and the Maiden Fair" was another really enjoyable installment, undoubtedly leaving audiences both incredibly satisfied but still salivating for more. Too bad, the wait is two weeks for Episode 8. Two! That's just cruel. Toss us in the bear pit!
Mad Men Watch: Season 6, Episode 7 - Man With A Plan
SCDP and CGC have become... well they don't have a name yet, and the merger sees heads rolling and rivalries heating up in a hurry. Don and Ted have always been rivals, even if it is a bit one sided from Chaugh's side, but now that they are in the same office they have to find new ways to find out who's dick is bigger; metaphorically, obviously.
Glee Season 4 Finale Watch: All or Nothing
In last night's season finale, Ryder's Catfisher was finally revealed, Will & Emma got married and New Directions won Regionals. Brittany's Einstein like journey to college takes another bizarre twist when she reveals she's taking an early admittance to college thanks to "The Brittany Code."
American Idol Season 12 Results: The Final Two Are...
It's certainly been a season of great female talent. Whether it was a matter of the girls simply outnumbering the guys in talent this year, or the judges being unable to scout out the better male voices, we were left with an abundance of female talent this season, and it would be difficult to argue that the Top 3 aren't the most deserving contestants. With that in mind, it's virtually impossible to predict which two ladies will go on to the finale.
Arrow Watch: Episode 22 - Darkness On The Edge Of Town
Arrow, The CW's superhero replacement for Smallville is wrapping up a pretty solid first season. After last night's trek into "Darkness on the Edge of Town," only one more episode remains for the vigilante and his ragtag team to take down the big bad and stop "The Undertaking." That's right, the titular event from the previous installment still hasn't happened yet (confusing) and this week continued the recent bout of serious serialization for the comic book series, setting up and even showing Arrow's long awaited rematch with the Black Archer.
Supernatural Watch: Season 8, Episode 22 - Clip Show
The chess pieces continued to be moved around the board in “Clip Show” but this week’s effort felt sloppier than last week’s “The Great Escapist.” The three majored storylines failed to coalesce and as we head into the finale I’m worried about how everything will come together. The revelation that the gates of Heaven could be sealed if an angel completed three trials should have come weeks ago. This storyline will feel incredibly rushed if they try to wrap it up in “Sacrifice.”
Game Of Thrones Watch: Season 3, Episode 6 - The Climb
There was a decidedly lighter tone to Game of Thrones this week, well, until the ending. It's interesting to see the fantasy drama sustain a full episode of delightful turns of phrase and fairly innocuous interactions between some of our favorite, and usually more temperamental, characters. Perhaps "The Climb" is simply the calm before the storm? HBO must be trying to make the audience feel nice and secure and then BAM! Ned Stark is alive and beheaded all over again.
Mad Men Watch: Season 6, Episode 6 - For Immediate Release
Mad Men delivers an all-timer with “For Immediate Release” whose ending is a wonderful call back to the title of this episode as the revolving door of incidents leads to a completely unexpected conclusion.
Glee Watch: Season 4, Episode 21 - Wonder-ful
In last night's episode, a few McKinley High alumni returned to help New Directions prep for Regionals, Mercedes faced off with her record label, Artie got some big news, and Blaine asked an important question.
