Within the next few weeks, most of the TV shows I watch regularly will air their season finales. Chuck already has, and boy was it a doozy. I won’t spoil it for you if you haven’t seen it, but you can read the rundown here. Castle wrapped up as well, and I’ve heard it was AMAZING, but I haven’t watched it yet. Thank goodness for DVRs.[Update 5/19: We watched Castle last night. All I can say is OMG.]
Glee aired the next-to-last ep last night, Funeral, and it was definitely a tearjerker. I pretty much agree with everything E! Online’s Kristin writes in her wrap-up, but my favorite moments were the two Finn and Kurt scenes with Sue Sylvester, Lea Michele‘s solo of My Man and the incredible cast performance of Pure Imagination (from Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory). To hear both songs as well as two of the original songs from the season finale, head on over to AOL Music, which has the full Glee The Music Volume 6 album a week early.[Update 5/19: Just listened to the audio of Chris Colfer and Lea Michele singing For Good from Wicked from next week’s season finale. Reminded me of another highlight from Tuesday’s ep that I really loved — when Kurt couldn’t help but applaud Rachel’s solo, even though he was competing with her. Reminded me of Rachel’s enthusiastic applause for Kurt at Regionals, and how far those two characters have come on this show when most of the others just seem stuck.]
For a taste of next week’s episode, here’s the promo that aired last night. My guess for the “unscripted moment” referred to at the end is a Finchel kiss. What do you think?
It’s a good thing, though, that my tv shows are drawing to a close. It will leave me more time to read Mothers of Intention: How Women and Social Media are Revolutionizing Politics in America by my good friend Joanne Bamberger (PunditMom). A combination of original research and essays originally published on blogs, Mothers of Intention examines how women, empowered by social media, have become a larger presence in political activism.
I’m honored that one of my posts Has Dooce become the modern day June Cleaver? is included in the book, and look forward to reading all the others. Publication date is June 1, but it is available for pre-order on Amazon now.
