2012 in Review: A few Memes

Hey ya'll! Because I've been absent for a very long time I thought I would do updates on my life through some memes.

1. Which TV shows did you start watching in 2012? Elementary, The Big Bang Theory, and reruns of Lois and Clark.

2. Which TV shows did you let go of in 2012? Body of Proof. They fired half of the cast. That's just inexcusable. Also House and The Finder went off the air.

3. Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2012? Nothing. In fact, I actually started watching Big Bang Theory in reruns on TBS.

4. Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2013? Nothing at this point, though all of my friends keep pressuring me to watch Sherlock. *cries* Don't make me!

5. Which TV show impressed you least in 2012? Why? Doctor Who. Moffat and his nonsensical plots and lack of emotional connections between characters. STILL. And what the hell was up with that lame-ass send-off for Amy and Rory? Why didn't the Doctor just travel to New Jersey in the TARDIS and then DRIVE to New York? Also, Once Upon a Time hasn't been exactly earth-shattering. :/ But I love Jennifer Morrison too much to let it go.

6. Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2013 unless things significantly improve? As I said last year, I won't necessarily let go of the following three, but I think they'll be cancelled: Elementary, Bones and Alphas because of the stupid-ass ratings system the television producers have created.

7. Which TV show impressed you the most in 2012? Why? It continues to be Vampire Diaries. arabian will approve. ;)
The twisty plots and strong characters continue to amaze me. AND DELENA HAPPENED!!

8. Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get? Why? Bones, Castle, Once Upon A Time and Elementary. Because I love the characters and the actors so much, I can overlook the occasional mediocrity. I don't think Vampire Diaries could get crappy, which is why I didn't even list it. :P

I really like Elementary. Maybe it won't be cancelled...I still have hope at this point. The ratings haven't been great but I didn't think they'd been dismal either (and I feel like I've heard some positive reviews about it). Fingers crossed!

I like your optimism! CBS seems to be rather proud of the show, having given it the after the Super Bowl slot this year. Maybe we'll get more fans after that episode. *fingers crossed*

I hope so! It deserves at least a second season. I rarely watch shows before they're into their second season, actually - it feels like every time I get attached to a new show it gets cancelled (especially really plotty ones where you want the mystery resolved but it's just...cancelled.)
