Shark Jumping

Tonight is the season finale of Big Bang Theory.

I am sad.  And I'm not even going to make a crack about stupid people here.  (Sheldon fans will know what I speak of.)

I love the summer season for a lot of reasons, but not this one.  I have to say goodbye to Sheldon for almost four months.  Oh the horror!  

I love that I still LOVE this show.  So many don't know when to let a good thing go.  

You want an example? 

So glad you asked.

Bones.  This show used to be all about the science and the implacable Dr. Brennen was refreshing.  This season not so much.  She has become whiny, annoying and quite frankly I think Booth can do better.  I watched it through the end of the season hoping this would be the last because I won't be able to watch next season, but no.  They decided to end it on a stupid serial killer, who if we are to be believed is so much smarter than everyone else at the Jeffersonian. Have the writers of the show not been paying attention.  The team at the Jeffersonian are smarter than God himself.

I think Bones has officially jumped the shark.


The other season ending that I recently watched which made me want to starting cutting myself was NCIS.  This was another show I have come to rely on for great drama and wonderful season endings.  Remember last year when Scott Wolf blew himself up?  Yeah, good stuff.  This year.  Meh!  For an hour we kept asking ourselves, where is this going?  Where?  Please dear God, WHERE?  But no one answered.

The ending was unsatisfying to say the least.  And now I don't know if its that the show is played out or if its just me.  Expecting more and getting less.

Okay, rant officially over.  What season finales impressed/pissed you off this year.  Share please.

Supernatural's season ender last night just about redeemed the show's lacklusterness this season. I'm gonna miss those Winchester boys over the summer. Can't wait to see how they handle the repercussions of last night's ep.

Agree, Karla, Supernatural's ep last night showed us some of the most talented acting I've ever seen. Kudos.

I haven't watched Bones or NCIS so not sure what's going on there. And I missed the season finale of BBT. Will have to catch it online.

I gave up on Once Upon a Time and The Vampire Diaries -- they've just lost my interest.
