First off, a question for the TV networks if I may. Why would you schedule your most important event of the year [the UpFront presentations] on the same week as some of the year’s biggest season finales? As a result of covering the UpFronts in New York, this TV Addict has had to miss some of May’s most exciting television events. The finales of UGLY BETTY, GREY’S ANATOMY, SCRUBS, THE OFFICE, SMALLVILLE, and SUPERNATURAL are all anxiously awaiting for me on my PVR when I return home (holy frak it’s hard to avoid spoilers!). Who’d have thought a television network would be guilty of such poor scheduling*.
So here’s where you come in dear readers. Let me know what show should be first on my MUST WATCH list upon my return home. Are Pam & Jim going to live happily-ever-after? Did Callie finally discover the truth about Izzie and George? Did she lose it? What exactly was in Fay’s secret love dungeon on UGLY BETTY? Is Sam alive on SUPERNATURAL? And did J.D. ruin Eliot’s love life yet again? Play programmer and let me know what I should be watching first. And please, spare me the spoilers.
UPDATE: Thanks everybody for the great suggestions. Right now I’m stuck at LaGuardia airport awaiting my flight home (sad!). I was hoping to download last night’s episode of THE OFFICE on my iPod, but sadly, iTunes hasn’t posted it yet. Instead I’ll be checking out UGLY BETTY on abc.com. Considering I have four hours until my flight, I have a feeling I’ll get to GREY’S and SUPERNATURAL as well. Really, what did people do before wireless internet?
UPDATE II: Just finished watching Tuesday’s VERONICA MARS. Really great episode punctuated by the fact that there’s only two hours of the series remaining. On a related note, if you’re like me and once in a while need to turn off the TV in order to pick up a good book (yes, it’s true), I highly recommend a real story about one child soldier’s incredible story. A Long Way Gone by Ishmael Bean.
