It’s The Holy-Crap-I-Wonder-What’s-Going-to-Happen-Next Wrap Up

29 Dec

Thinking back to January … everybody’s doing it. Everybody is thinking back 365 days, giving the year-round wrap up of the highs and lows of 2012 … well mostly highs. Very few people want to share the crappy … but me … me … I give it all to you. But not today. Today it’s about a suave looking ad man, a meth kingpin, a motorcycle gang, a good wife, and a person of interest.

Today is not the year in pictures wrap up (that’s in a couple of days), or the life of Guat 2012 wrap up. It’s the holy-crap-I-wonder-what’s-going-to-happen-next wrap up.

Other than all the important things people wish for in the coming new year like health, good times, job security, or well wishes for their family, I’m also looking forward to — desperately looking forward to – what’s going to happen next. I know some people out there are like yeah … I don’t watch too much television, or I’m not into television. I read 24 hours a day. Me I read, yeah. I go out and have a life, yeah. I have adventures, yeah. I have great meals, yeah. But television … dude … I always make room for television. Always.

And next year … that DVR is going to be blowing up.

Mad Men. Have you seen this television addiction? Don Draper. Genius Ad Man. Newlywed, possibly reformed womanizer. Dude … he left me thinking as he was sitting at the bar with his wife in the background and the hot lady down at the end of the bar. Feeling deflated that his wife had used him for a job, and disappointed with how it went down, he sits at the bar and ponders his future. Fade to black.

Dude, I want to know what Don Draper does that night, because you know it’s gonna be good. I wonder if he’s going to go back to his old ways and if he does how’s he going to work it.  Gotta wait until 2013.

Breaking Bad. Awesome cliffhanger. Walter White. Chemistry teacher with cancer, turned meth lab creator and ultimately a kingpin of the meth industry in Arizona … he finally decides to retire. He moves back in with his estranged wife and invites the family for a BBQ. Everything is hunky-dory until his DEA brother-in-law, who’s been trying to take down this unknown king of meth, decides to use the bathroom and finds a book on the toilet with an inscription that reveals Walter White’s secret identity. Fade to black. Dude. I know that he knows, but I want to see that happens when Walt knows. It’s unraveling and I want to be a witness.

Sons of Anarchy. I wrote an entire post on the season finale. I am so obsessed with this show, I could be classified as a stalker. Jax Teller sits there as his wife, awesome surgeon, gets arrested for conspiracy to commit murder and she didn’t even do it. I mean he sits there and does nothing as the sheriff hauls her away in handcuffs and her youngest cries. Nothing. Jax just sits there. I want to know who turned her in and what’s going to happen at the station? Is she going to jail? Is she making bail? Is she still going to get out of Charming and take the job in Oregon. She needs to win this power struggle with Gemma, her crazy biker mother-in-law, because the battle of the bitches is on.

The Good Wife. Dude … no one is that good. Alicia Florrick. Get a grip, chick. I mean who sleeps with their soon-to-be ex husband, who was a lying politician, who slept with prostitutes and recorded it. Who does that? Just because time has passed and he was out of jail and re-elected to the District Attorney’s Office and supposedly trying to be a good Samaritan do you sleep with him again. Who does that? Just because your mom tells you that your soon-to-be ex husband is a jack ass and should leave you alone, doesn’t necessarily mean it’s not true. Is she going to get back with Peter? Dude. I hope not.

Person of Interest. Finch and John always rescuing people from ill will, usually murder, using The Machine to help them scope out the corruption and crappy people behind the drama. Crazy CIA and FBI agents on the lookout for them trying to take them down, partly because of The Machine’s existence and partly because John is ex CIA. Government … always trying to protect their secrets. The last episode? Finch gets caught with four others operatives and is taken into FBI custody. Dude. How’s he gonna get out of this one? I know Finch will find a way, but how … I’m waiting for the drama.

There were other shows burning up my DVR and television in all of 2012, but these were my top basic cable cliffhangers. I’d tell you about HBO or Showtime, but I’m on a budget and got to wait until Netflix releases them.

2013 is gonna be a good year for television holy-crap moments. I’ll be waiting.

    I’m right there with you on the TV – well mostly. It’s a little tough in the blog world, since every time I write about any given show, multiple commenters write that they enjoyed the piece “..even though I don’t actually watch TV…” This inevitably makes me feel like some sort of knuckledragging moron who was accidentally invited to lunch at the Algonquin Round Table.

    I only share a couple of shows with you, Sons of Anarchy and Mad Men. I know that I should be watching the others, since everyone raves about them, but I’ve been too busy watching “Gold Rush” and “House Hunters International”.

    Anyway, “Sons” left us with yet another season finale cliffhanger. I’d turn to my wife for her take on what will happen next, but as long as Jax takes off his shirt at some point next season, she doesn’t truly give a crap at how the plot resolves.

    As for “Mad Men”, I can see how Don’s lifelong habit of carousing is a tough habit to break. I would think having his character marry one of the most beautiful women on television today might break him of his skirt chasing ways. Her parents do speak French, but everyone has their faults, yes? On an unrelated issue, the only show I enjoy watching with a highball in my hand more than Mad Men is Intervention.

      Dude … I know this is so lame to reply to you so late, but I was on the New Year’s Slow and Steady wins the race kick. And YES SOA and Mad Men left me with some awesome what-the-hell is going to happen next. I mean I don’t know how long I can wait. I might have to join Twitter or something just so I can talk to Kurt Sutter. And your wife is right, anytime Charlie A.K.A. Jax takes off his shirt … dude makes the story even better. And yeah… I’m waiting on Don Draper, his wife may be hot, but what was up with her singing in French in the first episode?

    Dude, I’m with you on this! Heck yeah I read, but tv is tv…there are some shows you gotta watch. I’m not quite caught up on Mad Men or Breaking Bad, and I haven’t started Sons yet (I know, I know, I suck! It’s next on my list, I swear! Lol :P) so I can’t be quite as excited about those cliffhangers in particular – but you know I’m freaking out about Person of Interest!

    Also, I nominate you for the Blog of the Year Award :) check it out here:

    I hope you have a fantastic New Years!

      Dude YES! You need to catch up with Breaking Bad and Mad Men before they come back this year … and what did you think of Person of Interest in 2013? I knew that chick (his old partner) was going to come back.

    I keep telling my husband we need to watch Sons of Anarchy because of your posts about it. :-)

      Duuuuuuuuuuuuuuude. I cannot emphasize enough … I cannot O.K. maybe I can :) But this show is amazing and you definitely need to see it. Start with season one and before you know it you’ll be like … OH … MY… GOD How could I have done without it? HOW! It’s awesome. And Jax Teller … dude he’s worth checking out. Just when you think he can’t get better looking … he does every season. Netflix…Netflix.

        Update: We are about mid-season 4. I AM IN LOVE WITH THIS SHOW. Holy cow! You are right….how does he get better looking every season? And how in the world do they find these AWESOMELY bad guys. The character of the ATF agent season 1 & 2 was hilarious. I loved how she would pop her eyes looking even crazier. Thank-you. We are going to have to buy the hulu subscription for season 5. I will be sad when we finish!

        Oh! Oh! I am so glad you guys finally got around to it. I love that show too. It’s amazing. I hope you enjoy the endings to season four and five.
