Well, the Television Season is coming to an end...er...a screeching halt. Over the next few days, I'll post about some of the winners and losers in 2006. Last night, I caught the season finale of ER (which I didn't realize was still on the air) and the series finale of Will & Grace.
I have a theory about series finales...the writers no longer care. It's their last paycheck, and no one remembers the final episode. It's mostly regurgitated stuff from the series anyway, used via flashback. Take the last episode of Seinfeld, if you want. Anyway, it was a steaming pile of crap, much like the rest of the series. The only subplotline remotely entertaining was Leslie Jordan (as a gay millionaire)having a strong wind blow him off of his balcony. Eh, his crowning moment was in Ski Patrol...classic.
They seriously haven't cancelled ER yet? Three words about last night. Over...The...Top. Doctor turned soldier killed in Iraq. Scumbag former husband of doctor shows up with guards from prison for treatment, plans escape and kidnapping (of said doctor and their kid). Jovial character and a cop shot in the process. Another fan-favorite doctor gets injected with something bad. His pregnant wife has something bad happen during the shootout, passes out, bleeding, uh, you know, "down there."
I really wish those guys killed more doctors. At least then I would only be trying to follow one or two plots, and not 10. Where did all the good writers go? Thank God for Family Guy.
