  1. I’m really glad Chuck will be have a nice short, FINAL season to wrap things up. This past season, ep 413 was a proper ending, and then the surprise episodes just made things a mess.
    I’m still quite a bit behind on Vampire Diaries. This is one of those shows I’m not entirely sure why I’m still watching as I certainly don’t enjoy it as much as other people seem to. In a similar vain, I’m so happy about the way you review Community. I see so many reviews that make this show sound like the most amazing show on the planet. IMO, there are far better comedies, such as Parks & Rec, Happy Endings and The Middle. While it has some really good episodes, the obscure references just make it hard to fully enjoy. That said, I did enjoy the two-part finale, but didn’t find myself caring whether or not Chevy Chase’s character actually returns (I’m sure he will).
    The Nikita finale was great and so glad it got picked up. I’m also excited to see that WB is giving it a blu-ray release. I just hope they release it early in the summer and not a week before the new season. I know they want to tie in the promos for the new seasons when these box sets are released, but you need to give people more than a week to watch before the new season starts!
    I’m way, way behind on Smallville–too bad that it sounds like it didn’t give the fans what they wanted in the finale. I will catch up one of these days, just need to bring myself to re-start and suffer through the rest of the Lana/Clark/Lex love triangle episodes.
    The Good Wife has been amazing this season–the telling off of “Grams” and the elevator stuff in the finale was great. I also love the fake simple small-town lawyer character played by the “Off The Map” woman–hopefully we’ll get more of her and Michael J. Fox’s character next season.
