Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Thursday, April 2, 2009

April 2, 2009 by  

Welcome to Thursday! Congratulations on making it this far. It feels like it’s been an especially busy TV week. I’ve been playing TV catch up since Sunday. I’m almost there.

Still haven’t seen last night’s season finale of DAMAGES.  After IDOL I watched LOST, but I was honestly falling asleep on my keyboard as I was writing my review of last night’s episode.  I tried to stay up for DAMAGES but I just couldn’t do it. Hopefully I can get through the day without being spoiled. Fingers crossed.

But that was then and this is Thursday!! If you are a fan of ER it’s a big night for you. Tonight is the series finale.  This show has been on almost half of my entire life.  So strange to think it won’t be here anymore.  It completely deserves the big send off NBC is giving it tonight, even if it means I have to sacrifice THE OFFICE and 30 ROCK.  Farwell, ER.

    I really liked the premiere of In the Motherhood last week. It has a fabulous cast – Megan Mullaly, Rachel Harris, Cheryl Hines…definitely worth giving a shot! I’ll be watching again tonight.

    LOVED ER! This whole season was great. Loved all the cameos that weren’t hyped (just like Clooney wasn’t hyped made it better). I wanted to see previews for next week because it wasn’t an end. Just a new beginning for Dr. Greene and a reason to come back to stay for Carter.

    One of the best moments was when Rachel told Frank (desk clerk) that her dad was Mark Greene. The choked-up reaction from Frank probably GOT so many viewers because they were at home doing the same thing!

    Perfect way to get Sam and Tony back together, not with an overdramatic, mushy kiss, but a simple hand holding.

    I wish I had watched the retrospective show AFTER watching the finale. I wonder if I’d have figured it out that it was a new version of the pilot.
