The Beauty in a Comeback

At the end of season 6 with the bomb Brennan brought on Booth and us fans many people were already turning their backs to Hanson and the Bones team. I, on the other hand said to myself that I trusted the writers and that with the good they’ve done for 6 seasons – they can do no wrong.

But when season 7 came, I was slowly (not fully consciously) losing interest. I haven’t talked about Bones with anyone for a long time. I’ve been purposely avoiding it simply because I didn’t want to admit the fact that I was losing interest. I was ashamed of it because for the longest time I raved about that show nonstop. I was about 5 episodes behind when I finally decided to give it another shot. It was so-so but not as magical as I remembered it. Sad to say, it was slowly suffering the Moonlighting curse. Then, I caught a small moment from episode 11 that gave me the slightest bit of hope.

It’s scenes like these that make me feel the thrill of a TV pairing. I’m glad that part was snuck in there. With that – I kept watching…up until the finale.

That finale…ahh that finale. I would have to admit that that was probably the most mouth-opening finale I’ve seen this season (it beat Castle by a hair).

I was on edge that whole episode. I was pinching myself so hard for all the events that led up to the end. I mean, of course we all know Brennan is no murderer (Although I was being doubtful of the show, I am loyal to Temperance Brennan) but everything that psycho Pelant was doing was just pure…twisted. It was frustrating and wonderful. Damn.

Then came the idea of running away…which they made seem was out of the question up until the very last few minutes of the episode. Now seriously I did not see that coming. And – now that it has happened, I cannot even begin to describe how full of promise the next season is going to be. Hart Hanson probably got that feeling that with the tension slightly gone between B&B, he had to go a whole new route. And – his decision was perfect.

Bones is back…with a vengeance. This opens a whole new kind of Bones madness and I am proud to say that I should never have doubted Hart Hanson and the Bones family. And I will never doubt again.

Goodbye Ruby Tuesday

I’m a little late to the party and was considering not posting about SNL anymore but I can’t help it. I am big Kristen Wiig fan and as much as I would love for her to do her own thing, it’s just sad that I won’t be seeing Dooneese (Lawrence Welk show), Kat (Garth and Kat), Target Lady, Judy Grimes and that lady on the Secret Word game.

The finale was generally alright, I don’t remember much since the whole send-off to Kristen Wiig out shined everything else. So if you’re reading to hear about SNL and any rants or praise I have for it (I have a few), I won’t be doing that now. I just have to dedicate a whole post to how great of a part of SNL I think Kristen Wiig is was.

I know she has quite a few haters and I’ve read a lot about how her characters are annoying. I couldn’t agree more. But – that’s what I love most about them. It’s how “annoying” they are but not to the point of wanting to change the channel (for me anyway) but it just keeps me even more entertained.

But – it’s not all that way with Wiig. She has a number of stand out non-recurring characters. I can’t forget her Lana Del Ray. I don’t know who gets the credit for that (I don’t know who wrote those brilliant lines and quips) but she delivered the hell out of them. And – if she wrote them as well, then I bow down to her.

What I probably love most about Wiig is how she’s just all over the place (in a good way) on the stage but then off it, she seems quite shy and humble. The funny is there no matter what but it astounds me how everything is turned around once she’s acting. I think that shows how truly one must give her props for her work and being who she is.

With that, I just know she’s going big. Although I am sad to see her characters go (maybe not completely – I’m sure SNL will bring them back once in a while the way they do with Fey and Poehler), I am looking forward to what Kristen Wiig stirs up next.

And a crash she gave us

I have been a loyal Grey’s Anatomy fan since the beginning. And the finales always leave me with tears, but this one fell short.

I was hopeful when the episode started because we were given a short glimpse of George and Izzie. Thinking we were getting some flashbacks, I was excited. Flashback episodes never fail to get viewers nostalgic and get us loyal fans to remember the good ol’ glory days of our favorite shows. But – that didn’t happen.

Instead, Shonda and the Grey’s team left us with some awkward dramatic acting (very disappointing McSteamy, very very disappointing) and a quick kill of one of the few likable characters left on this slowly flailing show.

Shonda lost a lot of good ones over the years and we were left with a lot of characters we couldn’t care less about. Then she lost Lexie (Chyler Leigh) – whether she was fired or quit – we lost one of the few characters we even remotely liked. It’s a shame really. I miss those days of Grey’s where they started trends like “vajayjay” or Mc(nicknames). I miss scenes like Izzie curled up on the floor or Addison in the rain outside hers and Shepherd’s front door. Those days are long gone and this show has run its course.

I do have to give it to Shonda for the few times I still felt connected with the show: Henry and Altman (which of course she had to break up because she just can’t stand happy people); Torres and Arizona; whatelsewhatelse….

To be honest, the only ones left in this show I feel are still relevant are Christina, Meredith (once in a while at least), Altman and Bailey (if she could only have those amazing preachy teachy scenes again like she had in her scenes with George).

I can’t even say much about the relatively new characters like April and Jackson. If anyone had to go, it should have been one of them…not Lexie, definitely not Lexie.

I hate to say this but at this point, I am ready to say goodbye. Let it end while we still have the slightest of interests because if this goes on when we’ve all turned our backs to it, it will lose all hopes of becoming a show that we will carry on with us and think back on as that epic doctor show it used to be.
