Tonight’s TV Spotlight…Monday, May 11, 2009

May 11, 2009 by  

Here’s to hoping this edition of TV Spotlight makes sense. The sun isn’t quite up yet, but I am.  I’ve got a 2-hour ride back to Boston this morning. How I wish I didn’t have to work.  (Speaking of, if someone has the address for the money tree can you please let me know. I’d like to put the address into my GPS.)

A plethora of good TV on tonight including the season finale of THE BIG BANG THEORY and HOUSE (say it ain’t’ so…no reruns!)

    As excited as I am for House (last week’s episode was pretty spectacular), I think I’m way more excited for CASTLE! If I’m not mistaken, it’s the finale, right? At least the preview looked pretty finale-ish. And I think I need to search back through the archives at GMMR, because I think I somehow missed last week’s Castle discussion! I was so excited for it, but never saw it!
