It's that time of year again. Time to reflect on favorite TV moments and madness of 2009. I personally had a lot of favorite shows this year: "Lost," "24," "House," "Dexter," "True Blood," "Battlestar Galactica," "Mad Men" to name just a few.
"Flash Forward" had a cool concept and a few good episodes, but it needs to retool itself before coming back in March. The same thing goes for "V," though at least "V" is a pretty basic good guy/bad alien show that's hard to mess up.
We were up to our scrubs in TV nurses which caused me to ask the question, "What if Nurse "Hawthorne" Were White and "Nurse Jackie" Were Black?"
Here are some more of my 2009 boob tube thoughts:
Biggest Surprises: Glee, The Good Wife and Drop Dead Diva. All quality shows with charismatic stars--Matthew Morrison, Julianna Margulies, Brooke Elliott--and in the case of "Glee" some kick ass musical numbers.
Biggest Disappointment: Dollhouse. Joss, I love ya' but here's hoping your next one's more well thought out.
Sweetest New Character: Arizona Robbins (Jessica Capshaw) on "Grey's Anatomy." She's the freshest thing about "Grey's" since McSteamy showed up and I love her to death. The episode "Invest in Love" when she loses her young patient and does the sweet dreams speech with his mother at the end had me sobbing like a baby.
