What I am Thankful For, 2011

Soo I did this a year ago and thought I would do it again because it was so much fun! Here is what I have been thankful for this year on television!

~For Leslie Knope, Ron Swanson, Tom Haverford , Andy Dwyer, April Ludgate, Ann Perkins, Ben Wyatt, Chris Traeger, Jerry Gergich, and Donna. Parks and Recreation please continue to be one of the best comedies on television. I don’t know what I’d do without you.

~For Lincoln Lee on Fringe. He won my heart over last season on Fringe and I have been his ever since.

~For Suburgatory and their hilarious yet charming depiction of the horrors of living in a wealthy suburban neighborhood.

~For Rookie Blue really stepping it up in their second season, bringing interesting cases of the week and mixing it with some amazing character development. Can’t wait for season 3!

~For The Good Wife as it continues to be oh so awesome in its third season. Also thankful for Cary…and Kalinda…and ELI GOLD.

~For Breaking Bad creating Gus Frig. May one of the best TV characters ever, rest in peace…with only half a face.

~Thank you for Aaron Paul.

~Thank you for Jon Hamm-even if Mad Men has been off the air for over a year.

~Thank you for Neil Patrick Harris and Jason Segal on How I Met Your Mother.

~For the amazingness (yes I just make up words now) that is Raylan Givens and Boyd Crowder on Justified. I am also thankful to the Emmys who nominated Walton Goggins, Timothy Olyphant, Margo Martindale, and Jeremy Davies for their outstanding work in season two. This show has one of the best casts on television. Do yourself a favor catch up and tune into Season 3 come January.

~For Troy and Abed on Community. If you have to ask, than you need help ASAP.

~For Big Carl on Cougar Town.

I AM NOT THANKFUL TO ABC OR NBC FOR BENCHING BOTH THESE AWESOME SHOWS! NOT COOL, and its best you fix this problem SOON.

FOR THIS:

I am also thankful to Direct TV for giving Friday Night Lights the chance to live on for 5 seasons. That finale was fantastic. Clear Eyes, Full Hearts, Can’t Lose.

~For the blossoming Bromance between Chuck and Dan on Gossip Girl.

~For Once Upon a Time making Fairy Tales cool again.

~For Hart of Dixie giving Rachel Bilson her own show where she can be cute and hilarious. I am also thankful that the show has brought back the awesomeness of small town charms and quickness.

~For Stana Katic who has become so amazing over these past couple of seasons on Castle

~For Revenge being the amazing primetime soap opera I hoped it would be.

~For Game of Thrones, Direwolves, Daenerys Targaryen, Peter Dinklage. Oh and most of all, thank you for dragons.

~For Teen Wolf providing me with some pretty damn entertaining supernatural teenage fun while TVD was off the air and True Blood was destroying itself from within.

~For Switched at Birth for not being to overly preachy and actually bring some refreshing and compelling drama to ABC Family.

~For The Secret Circle taking a page out of The Vampire Diaries playbook and creating an interesting story with interesting characters while not being afraid to kill some off when it needs to.

~For Homeland being the best new show this season and for showing us this complex world we live in depicted by complicated and flawed characters. I couldn’t have asked for a better show.

~For Sons of Anarchy having an incredible season four. In my opinion this is their best season yet.

~For The Vampire Diaries,  Ripper Stefan, Caroline Forbes being a bad-ass vampire barbie, the Originals-especially Rebekah and Elijah…ok and Klaus, and for the growing relationship with Elena and Damon- thank you for making it grow organically and not forcefully.

And most of all:

~ For Awkward. This charming, yet totally raunchy, teen comedy on MTV completely swept me off my feet this summer.  Jenna Hamilton became one the best teenage characters to root for as she battled her way through high school drama (that Letter!), mean girls (Sadie Saxton gives mean girl a whole new definition), and love triangles (Team Jake all the way).
Also, I want to say Thank You to some of the cast members (Jessica Lu, Molly Tarlov, Greer Grammer, and Nikki DeLoach) who retweeted my Awkward. reviews. You have no idea how grateful I am for your support. You guys truly are one of the best casts on television!

MTV is running a marathon on Friday starting at 11am and they are airing all 12 episodes. Make sure you watch! You’re Welcome.

~One more thing, THANK YOU to all my readers. You are the reason I do this, thank you so much for your support!

Happy Thanksgiving!!
