29 day television challenge: day 29 – saddest character death

Well, I can't think of a better way to end February than reminiscing about the saddest character death on television. As you know (if you have been playing the home version of this game), I adored ER. Dr. Mark Greene's death was super sad. He had a brain tumor and spent his last days in Hawaii with his wife and two daughters. He slips away as the ukelele version of "Over The Rainbow" plays. It's sweet and somber and fitting for a character who brought so much to a show. 

 

 

this changes everything

Nestle Crunch + Thin Mints? I'm in love.

29 day television challenge: day 28 – current television show obsession

OMG y'all – only one more day to read my ramblings on television!

Okay, if you said Hoarders for this post, please raise your hand. Now put your hand down, I can't actually see you. 

Caution: do not watch this video if you are easily or moderately grossed out. 

 

The guy who collected the beer cans didn't drink beer. It's true. How weird is that?

29 day television challenge: day 27 – first television show obsession

This one is hard to say. It would probably be The Facts of Life. I loved this show. And Molly Ringwald was in the first season.

 

Okay, so that was the first season. Let's skip to the intro for season 7 – with George Clooney and Mackenzie Ashton. 

 

Vintage Clooney. Amy Bickers, that one is for you.

29 Days of Television – Day 26 – best pilot episode

Once again, I’m picking ER. In the pilot, Clooney shows up drunk and has to sleep it off and Nurse Carol attempts suicide. It’s also Dr. Carter’s first day. What a first day.

 

29 day television challenge: day 25 – OMG WTF? season finale

Man, I've been waiting for this one.

The Colbys.

The Colbys was a Dynasty spin-off in the 80s. It was one of the shows I watched with my mom (because it was so appropriate for an 11 year-old to watch). The Colbys was centered around Fallon, who was on Dynasty. Charlton Heston was on the show. Here is the description of the finale: 

 

Sable kidnaps Scott Cassidy. Phillip kidnaps Francesca and Jason and Jeff try to rescue her, but a car crash leaves Francesca near death. Fallon attempts to find Frankie herself, but ends up lost in the desert, where she is kidnapped by a UFO. 

 

Now, The Colbys was not an X-Files type show. There were no sci-fi elements leading up to Fallon being abducted by aliens. It wasn't part of an on-going storyline, there was no alien uncle in the cast. It was freaking bizarre. I should also mention that Fallon reappears in the next season of Dynasty with no mention of the abduction. HILARIOUS. 

 

And that was the end. Most insane fnale ever.

29 day television challenge: day 24 – a show you plan on watching (old or new)

I plan on watching Downton Abbey because every damn person is talking about it. 

29 day television challenge: day 23 – best quote

from Meredith, Grey's Anatomy:

"But the thing is, it’s hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely, because almost everyone has that smallest bit of faith and hope that one day they would open their eyes and it would all come true. At the end of the day, faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale is slightly different than your dream. The castle, well it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important that it’s happily ever after — just that it’s happy right now. See, once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you. And once in awhile, people may even take your breath away."

 

I just love that.

Urkel or Screech. Take your pick.
