I wish those stupid “Housewives of [insert location here]” shows would be not just canceled, but burned out of the collective consciousness of all humanity.
I think Smallville should have been put out of its misery, er, I mean cancelled long long ago. Very happy Chuck is still going on. Interested to see where Supernatural is going to go next season.
Hmmm… honestly, out of that entire list? Nothing, I’ll miss nothing. I cannot find anything these days to really catch and keep my interest…
Oh wait, I do have one, and that’s TruBlood, on account of how good and strong all the characters are, as well as their very human and non-human flaws.
I cannot STAND Smallville, as it’s a microscopism of all that I find wrong with DC these days. How can they even call it Smallville after ten years? Clark is more Superman than he is Superboy!
