Thursday Thirteen: Reasons I'm Glad the Writers Strike Is OVER!

(thanks to Write from Karen: Web Designs for the graphic!)

1. The Office: Missed the most! I am eager to see if and when Dwight & Angela get back together.
2. Going off #1, I am curious to see how the relationship of Angela & Andy will end. Remember they did some "necking", according to Andy?
3. The Office (again!)-Jim & Pam. They're finally together, and then we lose episodes to the damn strike. No! I need to see them in action and see if they actually do work.
4. The Office (last one-lol): in real life Angela is pregnant. I'm wondering if they'll work that into her character at all, or just avoid the belly in camera scenes. Very curious what they could do with that, if they chose that route.
5. Grey's Anatomy-Derek & Rose. They were getting all chummy before the strike. I heard we'd see several episodes of them dating. I think it'll be an interesting change from Meredith. A good change. I was sick of their constant on-again off-again status.
6. Grey's Anatomy-Alex. Who is going to be with (if anyone at all)? Lexie or Ava? I think I prefer Lexie.
7. Grey's Anatomy-Izzie & George. We saw their sex life wasn't working in their favor. Will their chemistry improve that for them? (and personally, I always thought Izzie and Burke would've been good together).
8. Private Practice-Are we finally going to see Addison hook up with the homeopathic doctor or what?! I think he could do better, since she can be annoying. But I'm ready to see how they play it out.
9. Private Practice-Will Cooper and Charlotte go public with their relationship? Will it actually turn into a relationship, or remain sex only?
10. Without a Trace-Love this show! Samantha found out she is pregnant. Is she going to have this baby or what? I miss her and Martin together, actually. (I know it's not his baby)
11. Law & Order SVU: Before this season began, I remember reading that Elliott's character would take a diversion this season. Can't wait to see what that's all about.
12. Journeyman-I just miss this show. I quickly got hooked on it. The brother (cop) was finally starting to believe Dan about his time travel. Again, stupid strike!
13. I'm just plain glad it's over! New episodes, a return to regular TV, which seems to offer more on boring evenings at home. I'm still surprised it lasted as long as it did.

Picturing of Life said...

I love to watch Grey's Anatomy..

Grey's! I can't wait! I like Lexie & McDreamy, too. Interesting rumor about SVU. I thought they were going to introduce the idea of Olivia as a mom. But taking Elliot in a new direction would be cool, too. (Thanks for visiting my TT)

Bethany said...

I soooo cannot wait for Private Practice, Grey's and The Office to return-- so curious as to what they'll do with Angela's pregnancy!

I have my TT up too- 13 of my favorite pics from France :)

Have a wonderful Thursday!!

Great idea for a 13 list.

My reason would be MOVIES!!!!! Not television [too many commercials]

If you haven't stopped by my T-13 yet, I have made thirteen new headers for everyone who wants them...just click on 'em and save 'em for yourself if you'd like!! Happy Thursday.

There isn't a single series I watch, so the writer's strike didn't actually affect my life at all.

Well, I'm in the process of watching House, but I started with the first season on DVD, so I'm not to the current ones yet.

I was going wthdrawl form my fave shows!

Nicholas said...

I'm looking forward to The Office. I've never seen any of the others.

What about Lost?
I just watched the new episode.
What a mind fuck!
Thanks for visiting my blog.
Is your 10-month-old teething perhaps? Have you tried giving him/her Motrin?
Good luck getting some sleep.

I'm one of the few who doesn't watch Grey's Anatomy, I really can't stand Katherine Heigel & after watching Knocked Up makes me despise her more!! But I do like Patrick Dempsey. Remember the 80's flick Can't Buy Me Love? Who would've thought he'd be so cute!

Malcolm said...

Since I only follow a few first-run shows, I wasn't too worried about the writers' strike. I had plenty to watch (sports, reruns, Turner Classic Movies, and DVDs) to keep me occupied. Although I have only seen bits and pieces of Grey's Anatomy, I found your proposal of an Izzie/Burke pairing interesting given how Katherine Heigl feels about Isaiah Washington in real life.

I can't wait!!

I NEED The Office back NOW!!
