I’m ripping this idea off from my friend Tripp who talked about what you could expect from her in the upcoming year.  I figured that was a pretty good idea, especially with new shows checking in and some things I write about checking out (football, sob!), so I’m borrowing the idea for myself.  This is also my 100th blog, so it seems a good time to talk about the year ahead and look back at what I’ve already done.  Momentous occasion!

First up, I’ll be blogging weekly on Lost when it checks in.  Lost is my FAVORITE show so I am very very excited for it’s return on Jan 21st.  I, again, will not pretend to be a better TV watcher than I am, I’ll write what I liked and what I didn’t and hypothesize a little for you, but if you’re looking for someone who will be able to lay out the myth arc hit someone way more intelligent than I could ever hope to be.

Okay, embarrassing admission time, there is one reality show that I watch and one reality show that I write about.  American Idol, back in a couple weeks.  I don’t know if I should be embarrassed about this but I’ve been writing about it for a couple years now on myspace and I figure I’ll bring the action over here as well.  I doubt I’ll start this one until they get to Hollywood though, my patience for the loser contestants wears out quickly and I figure they don’t need any more attention from me than an eye roll.  We’ll see though.  New judge may inspire me to write something, who can say?

Friday Night Lights will check back in and I’ll be thrilled to write about that one.  There are few shows that I love as much as FNL.  Family drama and football, what more could you ask for?  Oh, and some hotness…they have that too.  I have managed to stay relatively unspoiled on this show despite the fact that DirectTV aired all the episodes already, so it’ll be fun to experience them with fresh eyes.  I actually stay unspoiled on all shows but Days, I need to mentally prepare myself on that one.

I’ll continue my NFL coverage through the Super Bowl, then have a little time out until April when I will live blog the first round of the draft.  This will be another first for me, but I figure I watch the whole thing so why not catalog it for ya’ll?  I’ll also have to play along with the Favre retirement watch no doubt, my disgust in that will boil over and I’ll have to say something.  Hell, I’ll say it now, he’s coming back people, he can’t stand NOT being in the spotlight.

Baseball will come back in April and I may write about it some, but it’s really hard to get too interested early in the season.  I imagine if the name Barroid Bonds gets invoked I will feel the need to write about that, but I think he might really stay gone and that will keep me relatively happy.  I have no idea what to expect from my team this year, probably nothing good, and that will drive my interest in the season; it’s not like football where I can talk about all teams.

I’m not sure what new TV shows I might take up, I plan on watching Dollhouse for sure but whether it’s worthy of writing about remains to be seen.  Trying new TV shows in this day and age is just asking for pain, so I’m gonna try not to get too attached.  You just get too hurt when they disappear in a year or two.  Farewell Dirty Sexy Money, miss you Moonlight, sorry to see you go Jericho.  You get the idea, I get nothing but disappointed generally.  It’s why I resisted Heroes and didn’t start watching til the 2nd season.

I will, of course, continue to write about Days until it finally takes its dying breath, which could be soon the way things are going.  I figure if you guys are toughing it out, I will too, despite the pointless plots and terrible writing.  I need to have a bitter blog here and there and Days seems to provide more than enough fodder for that!

I will continue to write about Heroes and Supernatural weekly as well try to write more about other shows I love like Bones, I really do need to add that one in.  I think I’ll be doing a whole lot of writing from the sound of it!  Maybe I’ll be less rambly than usual, that might help!

I think that’s about it, if anybody has any suggestions of things they’d like to see me address, feel free to leave a comment and tell me to get my butt in gear!  I am willing to consider writing about movies as well; after football season is over I tend to see a lot more flicks, so we’ll see if anything is worthy there.  So, I look forward to the new year, hope everyone has a happy one and I hope you all come back to see what I do in the year ahead.  Doing this blog for the last 6 months has been a lot of fun and one of my joys.  Does this make me sad?  I don’t know, but there you go!  See you soon!
