Day 01 - A show that should have never been canceled
I'm sure everyone and their brother has said Firefly, but we got a movie, so I felt that we at least got something there. And Middleman is another recent show that I think of fondly and wish we could have had more, but it's a genre show that had quirk, and lord knows that quirk is rare to grab hold, plus add in genre, so I knew going in that the chances of it hanging on for long were slim.
So I'm going to go with Ugly Betty because I felt like it needed just one more season. They rushed the ending. Plus they had gotten the show back on track. And even if they kept things like they are now and jumped in and did a season of "Betty in London with Daniel", I'd be happy because I just want that wee bit more. (Plus, I'm a Daniel/Betty shipper, so I wanted more build up to his feelings. Whether she ever reciprocated them, I wanted that life change for Daniel, where his priorities shifted and it was more apparent. Not the rush of the last two eps.)
God, that episode was nigh on perfect. I didn't realize there'd been something missing this season until that ep, because it was fun and the group was playing, and it wasn't all about Nate or Sophie (I'm sorry, but they're my least favorite characters, so all the highlight being on them makes for less enjoyable).
Plus there's all the joy of ( spoiler cut )
Now I must download a song. Although I'd prefer all three versions.
For the record, I haven't watched repeats of Merlin since last week. And yet I'm having dreams about it. And Arthur. I kind of like that the show and character have taken over my brain, LOL. It's nice to have something you enjoy unconditionally.
I'm going to neglect to talk about anything to do with NASCAR or the Nationwide race or Brad Keselowski/Carl Edwards for several reasons (not the least of which is my triggery "Do not emulate Dale Sr." beliefs).
Let's just suffice it to say that there are right ways and wrong ways to get someone else out of your way for the win. I love Brian Vickers, but the one thing I never support is what he did to Mike Bliss in the Open several years ago. And if you're a driver that's displayed that you can do it right, doing it wrong just looks ten kinds of disrespectful to the sport.
