This month we have been seeing the season end for a number of shows, and the actual end for a couple. So over the next few days I will share are my thoughts on what I saw as the good, the bad and the downright awful.
First The Good:
Hart of Dixie
|Hart of Dixie Season 1|
In Bluebell she meets the resident mean girl Lemon Breeland (Jamie Fox) and mayor Lavon Hayes, or as I like to think of him Mr Miranda Bailey (Cress Williams) from Grey's Anatomy!! Any good CW show would not be complete without some guy-candy to drool over, and who is that I see over there? Is that Street (Scott Porter) from Friday Night Lights? Why yes it is and he has managed to get up out his wheelchair to be all hot and sexy as the small town layer. I have saved the best for last, we have the delicious Wade Kinsella (Wilson Bethel). I don't actually recognise him from anything else however he has quite an extensive IMDB page and even appeared in an episode of the OC!! Here is a sample of some of his skills...
|Gossip Girl Season 5|
Oh lordy... what a season. There was so much going on that one week this would be on the good list, then the awful list and then the list of programmes that are so bad, they are kind of amazing! I feel that Gossip Girl just managed to scrape itself onto the good list. This season caused a few heated discussions in the office and some amazingly hilarious impressions of Elizabeth Hurley building her "media empire". I do hope we see her again next season.
Trying to list everything that happened to each character this season was quite a challenge so I will highlight my favourite things. Blair had her wild romance with a random prince and became a princess for about 5 minutes before running of with Dan. This was shortly after Dan wrote a book, published his book and sold the movie rights, all to have it wash down the drain and lose him all of his friends (for 5 minutes). Before the wedding pregnant Blair and Chuck were going to run away together and were in a car accident. Poor Blair lost her baby and Chuck was in a coma (for 5 minutes).
The Vampire Diaries
|The Vampire Diaries Season 3|
You have to love the CW for their amazing programming, and as crazy as The Vampire Diaries gets I just love watching it!! I think the cast is what makes this such a joy for me, I just love watching my husband, sorry, I mean Ian Somerhalder working. Ever since watching Young Americans (anyone else love that programme?) I have been a little in awe of him. No man should be that pretty!! Sometimes some of the yummy yummy eye candy also get lines that just make you want to slow clap for them.
This season has held a few treats for us. One being The Originals. I love them, even the creepy ones!! We have the parents; psychopathic vampire – vampire hunter, Michael and psychopathic witch – I want to kill my kids, Esther. Speaking of Esther’s darling children, we have; psychopathic Klaus, psychopathic Rebekah, not so psychopathic Elijah, and the unimpressive Kol and Finn (did they do anything other than die?). I think I have a bit of a crush on Elijah and in my opinion he could have been given much more screen time! We also found out that when the Originals are killed with the magic stakes EVERY SINGLE vampire from their bloodline dies!! NOOOOO!! This gives us a few problems as killing off the psychopathic kids could result in the death of one of my beloved pretty people... as long as it is not Sefan, Damon or Tyler!
Alaric was wonderfully tragic this season and his demise made me weep, how could they kill off such an awesome vampire hunter? I know he was half evil but he was also awesome when he was evil! Elena sent Jeremy away (no Jeremy come back) and then she came to her senses and brought him back. Through Jeremy’s Ghost Whisperer style powers we also had a lovely little visit from Rose! Rose, we missed you and it must be nice being a Vampire again away from all of those zombies!!
|Rebekah looks bored torturing Damon|
Finally Elena made the right choice and chose Damon (thank god!), well they had a pretty good snog anyway. Damon... we had a good few topless incidents, what a shame his shirt is torn off so much! I found Stefan to be rather annoying this season and wished he would go away so that Elena could get it on with Damon! I guess the producers realised that he was annoying and brought his real life wife in as Dr. Meredith Fell, or as I like to refer to her Pregnant sister from Pretty Little Liars!! To top off the season we had Elena turning vampire on us!! I have enjoyed this season so much which was enriched with the amazing episode recaps over at Forever Young Adult, I bow to them. I can't wait to see what is in store for next season, I am hoping for a lot more naked Damon action.
|GCB Season 1|
I am so sad this has been cut down in its prime. This series was everything I dreamed that Texas is. Big and showy and full of kickass women including the pint sized Kristin Chenoweth. Unfortunately the powers that be have decided to cancel this after only 1 season so we will never know what will happen between Amanda (Leslie Bibb) and the hot priest. Will Carlene (Chenoweth) ever get her affordable houses for Christian living off the ground? How many purses does Gigi (Annie Potts) store her guns in? And has Sharon (Jennifer Aspen) really lost control of "Eating With Jesus"? How is business going at the Booby Barn?
|The Good Christian Bitches|
Feel free to have you own say below! Next up the programs I thought were just plain bad...
