      • Well, community colleges are 2-year colleges. Though Community isn’t about a realistic community college. It’s about a high school, except they call it a college and the students are all adults.

        Comment by CJ – April 14, 2012 04:06 AM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • Actually, many community colleges do in fact offer four-year degrees…

    • Do you also complain that the TV series MASH ran for longer than the Korean War lasted? Did you try home-building all of the pseudo-science on McGyver to make sure it was true to life? Get a grip.

  • good to hear we’ll be getting some closure in the missing finale, since there’s very little chance it’s back next season. a lot of these finales look like they’ll be good.

      • Hopefully jack. I actually like Declan.

        Comment by L – April 13, 2012 06:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • I like Jack! Hopefully it’s Declan or Ashley, my two least favorite characters. Truthfully, I think it’s the faux-Amanda (the real Emily) who got whisked away by the sensei.

        Comment by Overdamoon – April 15, 2012 06:57 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Hopefully Ashley is the death. Declan’s annoying especially with that accent but poor Jack has lost so much already.

    • Obviously Emily is safe, so as long as it isn’t Nolan or Jack, I’m fine. Declan, Ashley and Charlotte can all go.

  • My prediction For The Vampire Diaries
    -The group come close to killing Klaus but fail, they probably will kill other Firsts(like the one who is with the mom) Someone dies(either Alaric, Tyler or Jeremy) and is forgotten about by episode 2 of next season and Elena kisses Damon then Stefan then they both say “You my brother” and she pouts and Damon is emotional abuse and Stefan is boring while Bonnie and Caroline continue to be the only tolerable thing on this show.

    My prediction for Nikita:
    -Things actually happen, like they do every episode of this little watched by awesome show with strong female characters who aren’t defined by the men in their lives or well, take crap for the men they love(and btw, the men they love respect them enough to never grab their arm and say something mean to them)…I know, it explains the wrong ratings. Ew to females who don’t take crap from controlling men, EW!

    • LOL, you’re Vampire Diaries is “dead” on. It’s the same every week!! I keep watching hoping something different will finally happen. Tic Toc…Tic Toc

      Comment by wrstlgirl – April 13, 2012 01:50 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • LOL perfect! You’re so right. Nikita lost the love of her life this season and she didn’t sit around moping about how her life was over, she kept trucking and continued to take charge of her life. Good role model there.

  • Here’s my few predictions for the season finales of The Vampire Diaries and The Secret Circle:
    TVD – Elena gets turned at the end. I’ve been predicting this since the very beginning of Season 3.

    TSC – Really excited about this one. I predict the war between the hunters will finally draw to close after a VERY epic battle, and all of Charles’ murders will be revealed. I’m also going to go out there and predict that Cassie’s mother is really alive!

    Can’t wait!!

    Comment by Anon – April 13, 2012 01:10 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • OOO..I wonder if this really happens (Elena getting turned)… that would make this summer’s wait as bad as season 1′s cliffhanger (the best so far). That WOULD be epic.

  • Very cool! I am looking forward to the rest of the season and the finales of all the shows I watch!
    I had to chuckle at what Joseph Morgan said about us the fans waiting a long, long time for season 4, it will be 3 months. Yes that is long but the CW puts all it shows on 3 hiatuses through the year so we already endured 7 weeks from Nov to Jan and then to other times where it was off for 1 month each time so as much as I will be wanting the show back ASAP I can make it 3 months!

  • In what way were any of these spoilers? They were all like “in the finale stuff that you’ve been waiting for all season may or may not happen! Ooooh! Fancy!” ARGH.

    Comment by Sandra S. – April 13, 2012 01:33 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
  • My prediction for TVD:
    They realize thr damage done by Alaric’s ring is beyond repair, so Alaric willingly institutionlizes himself. Rose was turned by Rebekah(or someone in her bloodline) so they decide not to kill her. They kill Kol and Elijah but when they’re about to kill Klaus, Caroline steps in because it will also kill Tyler. Elena get drepessed because she an Jeremy have lost all their paternal figures. Jeremy
    becomes a vampire hunter, Bonnie gets mad at Caroline and so does Elena. Rebekah and Klaus get out of town. And probably Matt gets killed by an original.

    Comment by Camilla – April 13, 2012 01:37 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I will shed real tears if they kill Elijah. He’s the best of the Originals. Though Rebekah and Klaus have really grown on me, Elijah will always be #1.

      Comment by Ari – April 13, 2012 07:12 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
      • Elijah, Klaus and Rebekah are the 3 originals I like and hope aren’t killed.

  • I hope they know if Elena gets back with Stefan its going to be a snooze ZZZ but it will also be very predictable. She has been so pathetic and annoying this year more than usual lol but maybe they’re talking about everything else besides that being awesome.

    Comment by Sam – April 13, 2012 01:49 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • I will give up on TVD if they don’t stop this stupid Stefan/Damon/Elena crap. It’s old and boring. Elena has been beyond irritating this season. But I love Caroline/Bonnie and Jeremy so I keep hanging on.

      • I’m so confused by people’s loathing of the triangle. It’s the premise of the series, guys.

        • Well if that’s true then no wonder I’m bored.

          Comment by Wrstlgirl – April 13, 2012 04:40 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
        • But somewhere along the way they have to move away from that. If the show goes on for 9 years do you really want to be at year 7 or 8 or 9 and still rehashing Stefan vs. Damon? I don’t. It’s already too dull. To me the series has always been about Damon and Stefan and Elena is just the annoying sideshow.

          Comment by Ari – April 13, 2012 07:15 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
          • I agree. The show isn’t really about the Damon/Elena/Stefan triangle. Elena is pretty much just a prop. Damon/Stefan = true OTP of the show.

  • Can’t wait for the Cougar Town episode to air! Unless ABC makes the worst decision ever and makes that episode the series finale…then I never want that episode to come!

    Comment by dinamite – April 13, 2012 02:45 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • Go right ahead, then! In case you haven’t realized, the overall ratings for Glee has dropped significantly since Klaine occured and every Blaine-centric/Klaine-centric episodes have recieved the lowest number of viewers. That’s all that should matter to the creators. Not what one person thinks.

  • Ahhh, I wonder who Jane shoots on The Mentalist!?! I kind of, sort of want it to be Lisbon, only because I want a highly Lisbon and Jisbon centric finale. But, alas, I don’t think they would shoot Lisbon in two season finales in a row.

    Comment by Mcat – April 13, 2012 02:59 PM PDT  Reply To This Post
    • An awesome finale that is Jane and Lisbon centric would be awesome. I just don’t know if I want her to get shot in the process. They’d have to play something like that very carefully to not be either trite or offensive. They have a good team of writers there though so, it’s possible.

      • Lisbon does in fact rock, except for one thing: her gun posture. Any time at all she’s using a gun, I’m ripped right out of the show by her limp-noodle, in-no-way-effective grip on her weapon. Once you watch for it, you’ll never unsee it.

      “Raising Hope”
      “New Girl”
      “Blue Bloods” & “The Mentalist”. Oh and “NCIS” probably. Sounds like a lot of good TV coming up in May. :)

  • “There’s a big, big step in the finale” between inappropriate-but-chemistry-filled pals Travis and Laurie, teases executive produce Bill Lawrence.

    At one point, in the beginning, this may have seemed “inappropriate”, but now I think it should definitely happen. You can tell these two really do have great chemistry and I think they should give it a chance. I just hope the show gets a chance as well.

    Comment by The Squatch – April 13, 2012 06:55 PM PDT  Reply To This Post

  • An hour-long “Community” season finale (“season”, NOT “series”, hopefully) involving a summer fun court and a face-off involving Jeff? Yeah, I’m there. That should be incredibly fun and interesting.
    And I’ll have to pass on the “Desperate Housewives” news to my mom. Will be curious to see how that show wraps up everything for the Wisteria Lane residents.

  • Glee prediction: rachel and Finn and mr. Shoe and Emma all have a joint wedding while the rest of glee gets very small parts. Rachel and Finn sing 2 duets and then mr. Shoe tells Rachel how proud he is of her. Graduation happens and glee performs. A lot of teary goodbyes and rachel apologizing (hopefully) for stealing their well deserved spotlight while she relishes in any type of attention possible, even negative. Last secret: Rachel and Finn are pregnant and so are mr shoe and Emma. Everyone of the seniors leaves the show except for Rachel and Finn who will end up going to community college and helping with glee. Next season what needs to happen: Santana, Britney become top performers in glee, rachel goes to new York and occasionally comes back to visit to sing 1 solo. Blaine will transfer back to dalton and Kurt will become a broadway star along with Rachel. Finn and puck go to Los Angeles to start their pool cleaning business and Rachel moves to la to be a film star after college. Blaine will travel to new York to be with Kurt when he graduates. Artie will also go to la and will make a glee movie with all of the Hollywood bound glee stars. Sound good?

    • They don’t *have* to get rid of her. She was the one that chose to leave. Last season she was let go to try out a pilot, and when it wasn’t picked up, she was called back because she was under contract until season 7. Now that season 7 is over, SHE chose not to renew her contract. They wanted her in the show, she was the one who didn’t want to stay. Don’t make them the bad guys. They got both her and AJ Cook back. That’s the MOST HUMILITY I’ve ever seen from a tv show ever, to rehire two actresses like that because the audience wanted them back.

    • I hope they do kill her and the writers don’t give her a happy ending nothing against Prentiss or Paget just one its overdue that a team member should die and don’t want them to wimp out like they did when they should’ve just had Gideon off himself in season 3 rather disappear into the mists never to be seen again.

  • Honestly, THE FINDER was the ONE finale that actually gave me chills. It seems like it’ll go out of the season with a bang! Hopefully, it’ll come back next year!!! :)

    Can’t wait for GRIMM and UNFORGETTABLE, either! Yes, I like the new shows, why? :)
