“Everything you think is going to make you happy just turns to crap” – Glenn, Mad Med
OK, I don’t actually believe that. You may recall me saying a while back that I am becoming more of a glass half full person, which is still true! But this quote from last week’s Mad Men reminds of me how sad I feel when I think about the end of Entertainment Christmas.
The end started last week with the season finale of Game of Thrones. I love that show so much that I might read the books just so I don’t have to be separated from the show when it is not on. Miracle of miracles, Tyrion Lannister survived after masterminding an amazing defense strategy (which did fail, but it was the best he could do!) I can not wait to see how he makes a come back next season. His family sucks, royally. Wouldn’t he and Khaleesi make a great team? Loved the last ten minutes when Khaleesi found her dragons and burned the creepy dudes from the House of the Undying to a crisp and locked sneaky Xaro Xhohan Daxos (he has the coolest name) in a safe with her former handmaid who betrayed her. Don’t cross the mother of dragons who believes she is the rightful ruler of the seven kingdoms, seriously.
This week The Killing and Mad Men come to an end as well. I am looking forward to some closure on this Rosie Larson thing, but I can’t imagine the show will go in to season three. I will miss Linden and Holder, though (and I know not one of my five blog fans has any idea what I am talking about because I think I am one of maybe 50 people who watch this show.)
Mad Men has had a good run this season. I was expecting Don to spiral a little farther out of control but it seems like they spread that around this season. Crazy times at Sterling, Cooper, Draper, Price this year. Joan, really?
So how will I entertain myself this summer? True Blood is back tonight! Breaking Bad will start its final season on July 15th (woo hoo!). I will have all of my friends in the Big Brother house to keep me company and don’t forget the guilty pleasure Bachelor Pad.
I also have season two of Downton Abbey to get through (I finished season one in less than a week and upgraded my Netflix subscription to two discs at a time because I can’t wait for it to stream!) and I have made it my personal mission to finish seasons three and four of Battlestar Galactica this summer. I need to know what happened on New Caprica after the Cylons came back! I also have books two and three of the Fifty Shades of Grey series and apparently I am going to read Game of Thrones after that!
I guess life will go on after Entertainment Christmas.
Perhaps I will step out of the air conditioning to enjoy the quiet city in the new summer attire I have been collecting all spring. Yeah, I should do that, too…
