Saddest character death

I made it through the meme!!! Here are my 5 saddest character deaths.

Buffy on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I mean, come on. It's Buffy & she died! And we didn't know at the time that they were going to move the show to UPN so not only the viewers, but also the people who made the show thought this was the series finale! It was super sad.

Libby on Lost
We all thought that Hurley finally had a woman who loved him, so he'd have a girlfriend!! I'm pretty sure most people connected to that because Hurley is just so sweet! But then she gets accidentally shot by Michael & I cried.

Denny Duquette on Grey's Anatomy
I also included this scene in the best scene ever category. It was just heartbreaking! Denny was so lovable & such a great character on the show! I love that he's been back a few times, too. Jeffrey Dean Morgan is just awesome.

Joyce on Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Her actual death is shown at the end of I Was Made to Love You, but The Body is all about the death. Besides being super sad, I think that is one of the best episodes made on Buffy because it was just so different & so emotional. No music, lots of long takes. It was just really captivating.

Keith on One Tree Hill
I cannot even tell you how much I cried the first time I saw this episode. It was unbelievable. It really was shocking to me! We all still miss Uncle Keith!!

Current TV show obsession

There are a lot of shows that I watch regularly right now. But there are only 3 that I really think I could categorize as a current obsession.

This show makes me giddy.

I am a young adult vampire fan. No True Blood for me. This completely satisfies my TV vampire interest.

This show is hilarious. I laugh out loud at something in literally every episode & I can watch them over & over. I never get sick of them.

First TV Show Obsession

I think this was the first...

I LOVED this. I remember I was super excited before it even started & I watched it from the very first episode. I loved Dawson & Joey. I loved that her name was Joey. I thought it was so cool that she climbed in his window. It was all just super fun! I kinda fell off the bandwagon after a few seasons, though. I never was on board with the Pacey & Joey thing & I never saw the last couple of seasons. I really do need to pick it back up. I keep saying that!!

Best Pilot Episode

I'm making this short & sweet because my life is overwhelming me right now! haha!
These are the pilot episodes that had me hooked into the shows immediately.
(Again, obviously add Friends & Buffy to all my lists like this.)

OMG WTF? Season finale

Vampire Diaries - Season 1
I freaked out when Elena was Katherine & Damon kissed her & she chopped off the dude's fingers, etc. It was just all crazy.

Big Love - Season 4
Bill wins the election & comes out as a polygamist. J.J. is doing all kinds of crazy in-vitro inbreeding craziness & Adaleen sets fire to his fertility clinic office. Oh my gosh.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer - Season 2
Buffy kills Angel right after his soul is restored. Then she leaves. We all cry & wonder what will happen the next season.

Gossip Girl - Season 3
Chuck was shot!!

Friends - Season 4
Ross says Rachel in his vows at his wedding to Emily. OMG

A show you plan on watching (old or new)

I shared a post earlier this summer with the new fall shows I plan on watching. Here's a show we've been meaning to watch for a while now. I know it's ridiculous we haven't been watching it already!

30 Rock
I know, you're shocked. I really need to watch it ASAP.

Best quote

There are so many quotes that I love from TV shows! I could pick a couple of Grey's Anatomy ones & of course some Friends quotes. Sex and the City has great quotes!! But the only one that stuck out right off the top of my head was the one at the end of the school shooting episode of One Tree Hill. I think that's saying something, so I decided I'd just go with that.

"Does this darkness have a name? This cruelty, this hatred, how did it find us? Did it steal into our lives or did we seek it out and embrace it? What happened to us that we now send our children into the world like we send young men to war, hoping for their safe return, but knowing that some would be lost along the way. When did we lose our way? Consumed by the shadows. Swallowed whole by the darkness. Does this darkness have a name? Is it your name?"
One Tree Hill

Most annoying character

Gossip Girl
She just gets on my nerves every time she's on the show. I feel like she's unnecessary & always creates drama that I don't want to be there.

One Tree Hill
I kinda think she's a bad actress & I just didn't like a lot of her storylines.

She's way too whiney.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer
Again, whiney! Maybe I just don't like Michelle Trachtenberg. 

Dr. Erica Hahn
Grey's Anatomy
I just don't like this actress & I didn't think she went well with Callie & it was just all really awkward when she was around. I was never a big fan of her being introduced as a real character that we're actually supposed to like.

Favorite series finale


I don't think I can avoid doing Friends or Buffy for this one because most of my favorite shows are still on the air, so these are the only 2 that have actual series finales. And I didn't love the Lost series finale enough to put it on here.

I love the Friends finale because it's just really funny. There are several quotes from Friends that Lewis & I both still quote on a regular basis that came from the series finale. I love that Chandler & Monica have the babies & Ross & Rachel get together! Phoebe is so happy she's singing like in a musical! It's just a great episode.

I love the Buffy finale because it's like girl power to the highest degree. I love the whole part at the very end where all the girls from all different places are standing up & becoming slayers & realizing that they can take on the world. I love that Spike sacrifices himself & that Buffy finally tells him she loves him (and I believe she really does). It is awesome!!

Favorite relationship

Apparently on other 30 Days of TV memes, this one is called "favorite ship." I think that's stupid. So it's favorite relationship on my blog. Again, I have a top 10 in no particular order. And by the way - I'm having a hard time with all these favorite whatevers. I've already thought of like 10 more favorite kisses that could've fit somewhere in my top list from yesterday!! It's so hard to pick!!!

Mark Sloan & Lexie Grey
Grey's Anatomy
I've already said that I love that he goes from a major player just going from girl to girl & not really caring about anybody to being totally changed by his relationship with her. I'm all about that.

Buffy & Spike
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
I have always been a little more partial to the relationship between Buffy & Spike over her & Angel because Spike chooses to be good based on his observance of how Buffy lives. Angel is cursed, not making a choice.

Buffy & Angel
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
They were the original. Forget Bella & Edward or Elena & Stefan. Buffy & Angel were the original human/vampire couple for me & I love it!

Booth & Brennan
Seriously, these two have got to get together soon or I'm going to stop watching the show. Okay, that's not true, but I'm going to keep threatening!

Nathan & Haley
One Tree Hill
I like it that they got together in the first season & have been through a bunch of crap, but are still together almost 8 years later!! It's awesome. I am not one who likes when TV shows bounce people from relationship to relationship. I think it's great shows that can make one relationship work over that amount of time.

Jim & Pam
The Office
They are just the sweetest. I don't know how to even begin to describe why I love them except that they are just so sweet! It's really cute.

Monica & Chandler
They complement each other perfectly! He's quirky & funny & she's neurotic & organized. It's lovely.

Rachel & Ross
They were just meant to be together. What more can you really say?

Rachel & Joey
I was definitely on board with Joey & Rachel & actually would've been ok with them ending up together rather than Rachel & Ross. But I would've been fine either way I think.

This last spot is a toss-up between Chuck & Blair from Gossip Girl and Carrie & Big from Sex & the City. You pick.

Favorite kiss

This is a tough choice!! I had to do a top 10. My lists are never in order, so this is random.

Buffy & Angel
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
It's the first time they kiss & the first time that I'm like, "Augh Buffy & Angel!!!"
(can't find an actual video of this kiss alone, but it happens about 35 seconds into this video - and I hate the song in the video by the way)

Ross & Rachel
The One Where Ross Finds Out
It's just a major "finally" moment!! Theirs is an epic romance. LOL

(yeah I can't find a picture of this one)
Lexie & Sloan
All By Myself
Grey's Anatomy
They are my favorite Grey's couple & I got really excited when they got together! I like it that Mark goes from being a bad guy to a good guy with her.
(the scene is about 2:30 into this video)

Bones & Booth
Santa in the Slush
Even though there wasn't really much to celebrate here - no relationship, no confirmation that they like each other - this was still really exciting because you could kinda tell that they secretly love each other. We're STILL building toward a relationship 2 years later, but still. It was exciting.
(only the first 15 seconds were actually shown in the episode)

House & Cuddy
Help Me
House, MD
I think everybody has been waiting for this since the beginning of the show. House & Cuddy finally, legitimately & lovingly getting together was just the best thing ever in the show!! I loved it!
(3:50 mark)

Sawyer & Kate
There's No Place Like Home, Part 2
This is when Sawyer kisses Kate before jumping off the helicopter to save everyone. It was hard to pick one kiss of theirs that is my favorite, but I like this one because you see that Sawyer has changed & that he loves Kate.
(2:00 mark)

Jim & Pam
Casino Night
The Office
Who didn't love it when Jim finally kissed Pam after he told her he loved her?? Oh my gosh I was so excited!!! I also really like when he kisses her when they find out she's pregnant. That scene was one of the best scenes ever in TV in my opinion.
(2:30 = casino night, this video has the other one at the 2:50 mark)

Seth & Summer
The Rainy Day Women
The O.C.
This is just plain fun. I loved Seth & Summer & this kiss is just cute! And it's when they finally get back together!! You gotta love it.

Nathan & Haley
The Wind That Blew My Heart Away
One Tree Hill
The kiss where they're in the rain & Nathan is getting all of Haley's newspaper clippings to show that he was still proud of her even though she left him to go on tour. I just love it. You know that they're going to be okay!!
(2:30 mark)

Buffy & Spike
Buffy the Vampire Slayer
The one at the end where Buffy is pretending to be the Buffybot to find out if Spike told Glory who Dawn was. I know this is a weird one to pick, but it's the first time Buffy kisses Spike on purpose because she thinks he deserves it. Something about it has just always stuck with me. I probably watch it like 3 times every time I watch the episode.

I've already thought of about 4 more that I could add to this. Oh well.

Bring back my TV shows!!!!

I would like to interrupt my 30 Days of Television to tell you how incredibly excited I am about my TV shows starting back up in September!! We are just a few weeks away!!! I love TV. For some people, they like to read, for Lewis, it's playing video games - everybody has something that they do to shut off the world & take some time out. For me, it's TV. It's an escape. It's like a little party in my brain.

Here, watch the recap of the way the relationships in Season 5 of Bones left off!! And be expecting some more promos for the new seasons!! I'm pretty pumped!!!

Best tv show cast

Friends & Buffy, which I think have 2 of the best TV show casts EVER. I think that's why their shows lasted as long as they did & were so popular. But I'm trying to branch out from those 2 because not only could I pick them for almost every category, but they're not on the air anymore & I'd like to try to highlight some current shows!

I have to say right now I'm really loving the cast of Glee! They're all super talented & seem to really enjoy what they're doing! I don't think I'd enjoy it nearly as much if it weren't for the cast.

Favorite title sequence

This one was a no brainer.

Our whole universe was in a hot dense state...

Favorite mini series

Okay so I can't think of a single mini-series or popular made-for-TV movie that I've ever watched! I've never seen Angels in America or Band of Brothers - although I feel like I need to see both of them. I never watched HBO's Recount, John Adams or Grey Gardens. So I'm going to have to show off how utterly nerdy I really am & choose the following 2 made-for-TV movies. Don't laugh.

Disney Channel
Yes I did get sucked into this phenomenon & I am actually not ashamed of it. I love all 3 of the HSM movies!!

ABC Family
This comes on every Christmas & has Kristin Davis from Sex & the City in it. Lewis & I watched it together at Christmas in 2002 - the year we first started dating. We have watched it every single year since then. I always find it on the DVR around Christmas time. (And just so you know - that picture up there makes it look oh so much worse than it really is!)
