Day 22 - Favorite series finale
You know, I think it's The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome, from The Middleman. Not because it was intended to be a series finale (it wasn't); those actually tend to disappoint me. I mean, the BSG finale got Adama/Roslin so painfully right but it got almot everything else so painfully wrong, and Firefly never really had something that you could call a finale, and poor Pushing Daisies had to cram two seasons into three episodes and didn't do so well. Middleman didn't really have any arcs or dangling plotlines to wrap up, just an emotional arc, which it did nicely. And while The Palindrome Reversal Palindrome did leave some hints for future episodes, it wasn't anything GLARING. Nothing got left to chance, and we saw Wendy as happy, secure and with a wonderful job and boyfriend, painting a portrait of her older brother cum father-figure, knowing that she's a hero and so is he, and that for just this moment, everything is right with the world.

It was and remains a lovely feeling. Definitely my favorite.

Though I do love Tomorrow, the West Wing's finale.

Just not as much.

Day 23 - Most annoying character
Josh Lyman, from the West Wing.


To clarify, he is my least favorite major character on a show. I dislike him because he's oblivious, because he's kind of dumb for one of the smartest people in the world, because I frequently wanted to hit him because of the way he treated Donna (although in the first and fifth season finales and Noel, I did want to hug him and tell him it would be okay, but who didn't?), and because he was really a little bit obnoxious. My least favorite type of person.
