TOP 10: TV SHOWS YOU WISH WOULD COME BACK

Now that Heroes is signed to come back for a mini series and Veronica Mars is being made into a movie, it’s only fair we enjoy a relaxing Sunday and remember all the shows we wish would come back.

10. DEXTER

Okay so I know it’s only been a few months since the series finale but it left on such a disappointing note, I wish the writers would come back with a ‘resurrection’ season. It doesn’t even have to be about Dexter, I’m really up for the show going on with Harrison. I mean realistically his is unique enough to be the title of a hit show. He’s a good looking kid so I don’t see why he won’t turn into a sexy serial killer adult. The show won’t take place in Miami anymore, it’ll probably be in some ‘shi-shi’ part of Europe, or wherever Hannah decided to raise him. It would totally work.

9. Are You Afraid of the Dark?

ayaotd_intro

Yes, yes I am. This popular 90s hit TV show set the bar on tween horror shows, sorry Goosebumps you were never scary enough. First, I loved the characters on the show. They seemed like normal young teens who were lucky enough to have a fire pit just steps away from their backyard. They really should bring this back- maybe with a little more umph?

8. Dawson’s Creek

Loved the way this show ended, but I feel like every girl out there could use a little DC in their life. I feel like One Tree Hill had the same look and feel, definitely the closest show to a modern day Dawson’s Creek but it’s never as good as the real thing. Not that they were trying to copy it.

7. 7th Heaven

7thheaven-2

The fact that they got rid of this brilliant family drama and introduced us to Keeping Up With the Kardashians says everything about pop culture today. We used to love a show about a priest and his fam-  even his sermons were entertaining. Now, there’s Kim Kardashian. Also, if they brought it back (okay maybe Reverend Eric Camden would be retired or dead) but we could still watch the lives of the kids. Like yummy Simon Camden, or perfect little housewife Lucy. And the best part,  maybe Mary Camden marries a famous pop singer and he’s obligated to make an appearance on the show. JT, how cool would that be?

6. Entourage

I know, I know there’s a movie in the works- but it’s never the same. I feel like the ending was bittersweet and it set up the perfect platform for a film, but this show could’ve gone on for another 5 seasons. They could’ve fast forwarded in time to change it up a little, whatever the format I think it would’ve been a hit. I’d rather watch an episodic show than one big most likely mediocre movie.

5. Friends

I shouldn’t have to elaborate on this. It could’ve gone on forever. Literally.

4. MTV Cribs

MTV-Cribs1

Nobody EVER changes the channel when MTV Cribs is on. It was the most educational show on the network, and it was about nothing. The best part was it would always air as a marathon so you’d waste your entire Saturday watching Cribs- we all did it. They still show the old episodes, the other day I saw the one with Nelly back when he still wore dew rags and bragged about his jacked up GMC Yukon (circa 2002). Dear MTV, we want new episodes!

3. Buffy the Vampire Slayer

btvs-scobbie-gang-in-library-buffy-the-vampire-slayer-635534_746_576

This was probably my favourite show of all time growing up. I don’t know how they would bring it back, SMG is old now but I feel like they need to at least attempt a remake. Everyone knows the high school era was the best, if they blended a little American Horror Story with Vampire Diaries, I think the show would be a smash reborn hit. All new cast, ooh who would be your Angel?

2. The O.C

Looking back on The O.C always makes me feel like I failed at life. I loved the show from the beginning, it made me angry/depressed my parents didn’t decide to raise me in some suburban Southern California town. It was so hard to watch the show fall a part- I do think the departure of Marissa (Mischa Barton) was a huge reason the show went down, but I still think the show could’ve gone on. The writing was witty and shocking, there was no other teen drama like it on TV. I loved One Tree Hill but it had way more cheese than The O.C. Hopefully in the future, when someone casts for The O.C sequel, they won’t choose a 5’4 leading man, and an awkward coked up princess as the leading lady.

1. Friday Night Lights

Friday-Night-Lights-season-3-episode-12

This is the most underrated show- ever. The movie was amazing, but forget that the show was absolutely brilliant. With the platform of football, Friday Night Lights was able to dive into a specific subculture of the American spirit so accurately. Yes the show was about sports, but it was much- much more than that. Friday Night Lights has been over for a few years but I still find myself watching old episodes and reliving the excitement as it was when the show aired. The best part is, out of all the shows we’ve discussed here, I think a FNL continuation is the most realistic. The characters might change, but the importance of football and the significance a town has on shaping all these different characters still makes sense. Football is so important to Americans, this show took that ran with it, scored a touchdown and made everyone in America feel like they were rooting for the same team.

TVD Season Finale RECAP

Last night’s RECAP of CW’s The Vampire Diaries.

Okay so this fourth season started off with a bang, we jump into a new world where Elena isn’t human anymore, she’s dealing with becoming a vampire, she loses a bunch of people along the way and finds herself in tight leather pants, a new hairdo and her humanity switch turned off. Aside from the world of Elena, we have a bunch of other plot lines that I think proved to the audience…this show could go on without the main three. Immediately, I was drawn to the Caroline and Klaus story. I really thought they would show much more of the two throughout the season, but of course Elena has to steal the thunder and Caroline and Klaus fell through the cracks. So we all know that the CW has given the green light for a spin off called The Originals, which will include Klaus, Elijah, Rebecca (unless she’s in Europe with Matt) and Klaus’ baby mama. Yes, even though he got a werewolf girl knocked up, he’s still madly in love with Caroline and it’ll be interesting to see how they work with her in between the two shows. But back to TVD, Elena is enjoying her down time with Jeremy and Alaric…in a cemetery? How ironic.

happy times

So before we get off track, because there’s so much to talk about we should sum up last night’s events. Everyone is back from the dead, or at least until the veil rises again. Bonnie is dealing with the fact that she’s dead, but because everyone supernatural is still alive, she’s still there- kind of. Rebecca is dealing with her ex boyfriend/vampire hunter…Matt is strapped to a bomb plate thing, Rebecca refuses to leave his side. She promises to show him the world, take him wherever he wants to go. With the camera revolving around Matt and Rebecca, we don’t realize that she’s taken him off the bomb plate and placed herself on it. She begs Matt to run as fast as he can, she will be able to withstand the explosion but he obviously won’t. Matt runs off and Rebecca jumps off the plate and makes a run for it.

Silas and the cure have been the two main forces of this season and I have to say I was disappointed when we thought Silas was dead. First of all, Bonnie killing Silas that easily in the caves was b*******. The entire season they’re trying to figure out how to kill this guy and she does it after a quick pep talk from her granny? It just didn’t make sense. And then, all season everyone’s looking for this stupid cure, and once they have it, nobody can decide whose going to take it? So throughout last night’s episode, they were trying to make us think Damon would have to take it, or Stefan would decide he’s going to take it…like how about nobody takes it and we just go on with the damn show. You know?

The Irish vampire hunter shoots Damon with wooden bullets laced with werewolf venom, Klaus is all the way in New Orleans, so they only option they had was for Damon to take the cure and live. He doesn’t take it, Klaus comes back…of course he needs to see Caroline graduate and deliver his final monologue.

Damon Dead

The graduation scene was definitely one of my season favorites. I think for shows like The Vampire Diaries, where you’re dealing with supernatural problems, graduation seems so miniscule but it’s actually a beautiful moment seeing these kids do what every normal high school kid gets to do. In Buffy the Vampire Slayer, graduation was one of the biggest scenes in the entire series, it was a really powerful scene. The gang is at the Mystic Falls HS graduation, surprisingly everyone has made it. Bonnie is tripping out because she knows she’s dead but she refuses to tell anyone else. Caroline is in her moment of glory, she is beaming and so happy that they’re all moving on with the next chapter of their lives…you know the usual grad speech. The entire time Bonnie is tearing up because she knows she’s not going to enjoy any of it. The entire season Bonnie annoyed me, I really was waiting for her time to come but the grad scene was really hard to get through.

Stefan has his hopes up, now that Elena is back she might take him back. He says he would take her back in a heartbeat but it all depends on what she wants. Lexi tells Stefan to leave Mystic Falls and enjoy his life, she’s not the only soul mate he’s going to have. Elena and Damon finally have the scene all Delena fans were waiting for. Elena admits she’s in love with Damon, pure and simple. Damon is still in love with her, and now that there’s no sire bond, they can finally have their moment. The entire time Stefan overhears them talking, he’s obviously heartbroken but he now has his answer, he should move on with his life. Elena asks Stefan to take the cure, the only other person that sucks at being a vampire is him. The scene ends there, but towards the end of the episode it jumps back to this scene, Stefan gives the cure back to Elena and tells her he did everything so that she could have the choice of being a vampire or human.

Caroline and Klaus have their moment, of course he comes back to give Caroline her graduation present. He tells her it’s something she’ll want more than anything else. He tells her Tyler is free to return to Mystic Falls, he won’t chase him anymore. Caroline is super happy, but what does this mean for K and C? Klaus tells Caroline that he understands Tyler is her first love, but he knows he’s going to be her last…eventually she will understand that. Best line by Klaus…EVER, and he’s had some good lines!

Matt and Rebecca are safe at home, Matt agrees to join Rebecca on her world adventure tour…he’s got nothing lined up next year so why not?

In the last 5 minutes, we know the veil is about to go up, so at any time our favorite dead people could be gone forever. Damon is in his room having a drink with Alaric, Alaric congratulates him on finally getting the girl. Damon looks down to pour himself a drink and by the time he looks back up…Alaric is gone. So sad! Stefan is in the car with Lexi, they’re having ‘the soul mate’ discussion, when Stefan admits he needs to leave for a while, the camera zooms out and we see an empty seat beside Stefan.

Jeremy decides to see Bonnie in his final minutes. She’s back at the cave doing the spell. They have a moment, and then Bonnie realizes her spell has worked. Her spell to bring back Jeremy (which killed her) did go work. Jeremy is thrilled that he’s alive, he runs to Bonnie to give her a hug and realizes he can’t feel her arms on him. He asks her what she’s done, she says it’s okay, she has her grams now..and the witches…and he can see ghosts so they can talk everyday. She begs Jeremy to lie to Elena and Caroline and tell them she’s away visiting her mother. She says for once her friends are okay…she doesn’t want to take that away from them. How noble.

Katherine and Elena have a huge fight in the halls of the high school. It looks like Katherine is about to kill Elena…the reason is kind of blurry but whatever. Elena pulls out the cure and shoves it in Katherine’s mouth. ‘Have a nice human life Katherine’ Elena mumbles out.

ElenaKatherine

In the end, Stefan drops by the cliff to dump Silas’ body in the river. While unpacking the bag he realizes there’s just pieces of broken stone in the bag. He turns around and there’s Silas in Elena’s body. Silas explains to Stefan that there was a doppelganger created for Silas. Stefan assumes it’s another one of Elena…so what there’s 3 of them now? And then the camera pans to the car window…and we see who Silas really is….Stefan!

Stefan car window

Silas locks Stefan into the safe that was meant for Silas, pushes it off the cliff and into the water with Stefan inside! So whose going to realize the real Stefan is missing?? I have to admit it was an impressive ending!

What did you guys think of the season finale?

 

And now a moment of silence for Bonnie Bennett.

Ringer Series Premiere!

So last night was the series premiere of Ringer, which is the new show on the CW Network with Sarah Michelle Gellar, or as I call her “Buffy”.

I wasn’t expecting the show to be any good…nothing on the CW Network is amazing…but since it was right after 90210 I decided to watch it. I couldn’t stop until it was over! It was actually really good…really interesting…and Buffy got to kick some ass!

I feel like once all the storylines have been told, or start to unravel…the show might get a little boring. Kind of like Prison Break, when they actually broke out of the prison. But it’s pretty entertaining for now…so get watching!

Tuesdays on the CW Network 9pm. Not sure what the Canadian channel is for it yet.
