I can't remember a previous year with so many hyped-up season finales of shows I actually like. This year has been "the golden age of television" -- at least for crap I enjoy watching. Loved seeing 'Boston Rob' and Amber on The Amazing Race. Survivor had a great season with their strongest female ever, Stephanie and all American fireman Tom taking the big prize. They are headed to Tikal, Guatemala next, a spot Lori and I already survived so that should be sick. Tikal even popped up in the Alias (which I finally got into this year) finale - though this time it was a bad Hollywood back lot version of it. While Raymond and Desperate Housewives has gotten all the hype and acclaim this year, 24 has quietly had its best season. Each year I'm amazed they are able to top the previous season and it looks like the finale this year is going to really shake-up who might be around for next year. Always thought if this show really had balls they would kill Jack Bauer. Will find out soon enough. Quentin Tarantino made a rare television directing appearance and kicked the finale of CSI in the ass. Meanwhile in cable land the writing and acting of all those cock suckers on Deadwood gives HBO their best series since The Sopranos. And on Project Greenlight it looks like they finally might have made a movie, Feast, worth seeing. But what I think is the best show on TV right now, the show I look forward to each week and will miss all summer long is Lost. Looking forward to the two hour finale of that more than Revenge of The Sith. At least I'll have some free time back now that everything will kick into nothing but reruns.
