All things in a Season...

Seeing as most shows have played out their Seasons by now, I thought I'd be doing a very quick review. So, here goes:

House - found the Season mostly "eh" and I'm pretty much only staying with it for completist reasons and the occasional House/Wilson now, only question: how and why can there legitimately be a Season 8 now?

Castle - Season was okay but I had lots more fun last year and I don't enjoy when the show goes too heavy (or 24), for me it's perfectly alright as fluff

NCIS - again, okay-ish Season but I think what I enjoyed most was the distinct dialing back on Tony the goof in the last couple of episode, whoever is responsible for that? THANK YOU. Man, there is fun and there is carricature.
NCIS LA - really enjoyed the Season, like the addition of Deeks and it's basically my "mindless fun action" show these days

Criminal Minds - see House and the completist reasons, also spy-plots? I will say one thing, this show has put the fear of God home invasions in me, seriously, I'm terrified of them now, especially being tortured
Criminal Minds - Suspect Behaviour - yup, I watched it and yup, one more to go, also yup, it got cancelled - splendid, I might have otherwise stayed with it out of sheer whateverness

Big Bang Theory - mostly fine but not as funny as previous Seasons IMO

Community - had a blast mostly and I totally want to play paintball or Dungeons and dragons

Vampire Diaries - great, great plot-show for me, stuff happens all the time, it's tight and I really enjoy it

SPN - oh well, not my cuppa tea, thought the beginning was okay-ish, then from 6 or so to 14 it sucked in various degrees (majorly in 9, 10 and 13), then it became okay-ish again for 15-20 and sucked again in the final two. What cracks me up however is that with such a wildly compatitive fanbase, no large faction seems truly happy in general. I mean, if you have diametrically opposing viewpoints and tastes and likes, it stands to reason that you make at least one side happy and the piss the other(s) off. Or not. Heh. In any case, I consider this a bottom feeder Season though the I didn't hate any episode as much as Suck Song so there is that.

A couple of shows are being held for marathon watching still to come like Fringe, White Collar, Leverage etc. Oh, and I did finish Stargate Universe - um, well, Season 2 was better than 1 until they did the pseudo-Borg thing. But I really, really miss having a true Sci-Fi show around. *wails*

I actually quite enjoyed Castle but I just got caught up with it last week or so and basically watched the entire season in a week, so that may have helped.

Other than that...I don't watch any of these shows anymore O.o

Probably, that often helps my enjoyment of shows as well. It's why I saved a few shows for watching like this.

Heh, you are probably the lucky one. *g* I hope a couple of the old-timers end next Season, especially SPN. I kinda wish they had stopped with 6.20 which was probably the last hurray big Cas and Dean/Cas episode. Especially if they drop Misha from the show. Meh.

If you say so :p I'm not watching a whole lot of current shows anymore...as far as US ones are concerned it's basically HIMYM aaaand...that's it? I should probably still count Bones though I haven't watched the last few episodes, I might give season 7 a try though. White Collar is on hiatus right now. Oh, I do watch GoT! And I may give Wilfried a chance.

As far as British telly is concerned I'm still sticking to Doctor Who and Merlin. It's my feel-good tv. I've slowly begun to get caught up on other shows, though. I'm currently working my way through Mad Men, 30 Rock and Spooks. Still have season 1 of Six Feet Under on my shelf, too.

I'm with you i miss a good scifi show on my screen *sigh* I tried The Event but it's so laughable i can't call it scifi. it's a comedy.

I haven't seen the Event and now probably won't either. :) But yeah, not a single one Sci-Fi show these days. Sigh.
