T.V. Talk

Happy Friday!
This week seemed to take forever to end and I know I will blink and it will be Monday morning AGAIN.
Now onto one of my favorite topics- T.V.
-Did anyone else watch the series finale of The Office last night? I've written about my love of the show before, hell I named my cat Halpert after my fictional t.v. boyfriend Jim Halpert. And while the show hasn't been the same since Steve Carrell left I've continued watching. I have to say I LOVED LOVED LOVED the finale. I thought it was perfect and the writers tied up all the storylines in the best possible way. It was bittersweet for sure and I definitely teared up in spots. I'll miss Dunder Mifflin and I'll especially miss Jim Halpert.
-I haven't had a chance to watch the Grey's Anatomy or Scandal finales so I'm treading lightly on social media today so as not to be spoiled. And WHY must people post spoilers on their Facebook 30 seconds after a show ends???!!!! Don't they realize how many people watch later on DVR?! You can write about it without giving specifics.
-In addition to the above statement, Scandal is my favorite show right now. If you aren't watching it get Netflix and start! You'll be hooked. Promise.
-Other favorite shows in addition to Scandal include: Modern Family, Nashville, Once Upon A Time, All the Real Housewives, Mad Men, Bachelor/ette, Revenge (this season kinda sucked but the finale made me excited for next season) and Glee (kinda hit or miss lately).
-I think I watched a total of 10 minutes of American Idol all season. I couldn't stand the judges and I'm happy they are leaving. Ryan Seacrest is like a cartoon character to me and 90% of the winners never become really famous anyway.
-I'm not really into most of the talent competition shows with the exception of So You Think You Can Dance. I LOVE that show and I know it's officially summer when that starts airing.
-Everyday at lunch my coworkers and I sit in the conference room and watch HGTV's House Hunters and snark on either the home buyer or the houses. Oh and if the couple is buying a vacation home for $1 million plus we definitely talk crap about them. And yes it's done completely out of jealousy.
-Speaking of HGTV, if there is nothing else good on, that's my go-to channel for background noise.
What t.v. shows do you love or hate?

I am PUMPED about Bachelorette returning on May 27th with Des! :) Otherwise, I am watching The Voice right now and that is it at the moment. Since I don't have any series going on, House Hunters and HGTV in general is definitely my go to as well. My husband also likes 'Diners, Drive-ins and Dives' on the food network so we go between that and House Hunters if they are both on. And then I can also be found watching reruns of Friends whenever I can find them!!! ;)

I don't watch any of those shows, but I want to watch The Office and Greys Anatomy, so I skipped those parts in case there was a spoiler :P
I watch How I Met Your Mother, but it's too cheesy lately to really enjoy. I love Raising Hope. That finished a couple of weeks ago. We're a whole season behind on Big Bang Theory, but that's another favorite. And we're huge Big Brother fans.

I agree with everything you said about the series finale of The Office (even the crushing on Jim!)

It was a well done finale and although it was time for the show to end, they went out in the best way possible.

I totally cried like three times last night!

I have Grey's sitting on my DVR and if B ever naps I am diving in today! I vaguely remember hearing something about a teenage girl inventing an app to block TV spoilers on Facebook and Twitter. If I didn't imagine that, maybe you should look into it! There is nothing worse than people posting spoilers on those sites!

I never really watched The Office, but Rob watched for a handful of years.

We watch Grey's Anatomy, but we're like 6-8 weeks behind. There are 3 shows that we just let build up so we'll watch during the summer.

Spoilers don't bother me usually.

I broke up with Glee this season in the middle of an episode. I just deleted and then stopped recording it.

I'm all into Doctor Who, Arrow, Supernatural, Game of Thrones, Veep, Parks & Rec, Mad Men. I record others, too, but those are the ones I'm caught up on so that means something.

I thought they Grey's finale was pretty good. That show is getting sort of predictible though :-(

I am loving Nashville. I think its one of the better new shows this year.

Is it weird that I fastforward through any song that I don't already know in Glee? I am kind of over that show, even though I keep watching.
