Trish's TV this week - May 12

It's finally here. The end of another tv season. The first of the season finales were this week and I am loving it. These have been some of my favorite episodes of the whole year.

The Office - I didn't really think this show was funny when it started last year. It's been slowly growing on me so that now it's one of my favorite shows. I've been laughing all the way through every episode lately and the season finale was no different. Some of my favorite moments: Jim's Jedi mind trick, "I'm a philanderer," Dwight (every Dwight moment), Jan driving 2 1/2 hours for casino night, and of course the KISS.

Earl - I thought the first 30 minutes were boring, but the last 10 minutes were laugh out loud funny. Especially the old lady.

Gilmore Girls - I've been reading the message boards about this episode and people seem to be split into Luke and Lorelai camps (kind of like Stars Hollow when they broke up). People in the Luke camp think Lorelai is a tramp for sleeping with Christopher, people in the Lorelai camp feel bad for Lorelai. And most people in both camps hate the writers. I still like the writers, but I think I'm in the Lorelai camp. I've never understood why Luke's acted the way he has this year and I don't like it. This seems like it was the last straw for Lorelai. That said - I really liked the episode. I needed Lorelai to yell at Luke and I loved Rory and Logan. I can't wait to see what happens next season.

Veronica Mars - This was the best season finale ever. I just started watching the first season of VM, so hopefully that one is just as good. I was completely surprised by the entire show. Beaver was never on my list of possible suspects. I love that Daddy Mars is alive (I think) and that L and V are together again. And the last couple of minutes left me with a lot of questions. This is definitely one of my new favorite shows.

West Wing series finale is this Sunday. I haven't watched in a couple of years, but I'll be watching just because of how much I loved the first few seasons. Oh yeah and because Bradley Whitford is cool.
