Whitney: Can the Season Finale Be the Series Finale?

<I>Whitney</I>: Can the Season Finale Be the Series Finale?

Full disclosure: I watched every single episode of Whitney. Not because I liked the show, or remotely thought that it was at all good. In fact, it was terrible. Given how outrageous Whitney Cummings is as a stand-up, it was bizarre that her humor was so watered down for this series. But I think that's what kept me tuning in. It was like she was stuck in some sitcom hell of her own creation and each episode was one more car added to the 20-car pileup on the interstate that I couldn't turn away from. Why did she do this to herself? Is she a masochist? Actually, that might explain a lot. Or maybe I'm the masochist for willingly tuning in every week. No one here at work forced me, too, but since I've been accused of writing off shows too quickly after the pilot, I thought that since I like Cummings in general, I'd give this one a shot for a whole season as some sort of twisted experiment.

<i>American Horror Story</i>: The Season Finale’s Freakiest and Funniest Moments

We'll say this for American Horror Story's Season 1 finale -- we were never certain exactly where it was going to go. And here's another thing: after a freshman year filled with freakish thrills and funny laughs (both of the intentional and unintentional variety), the last thing we expected from "Afterbirth" was that it would be so... well, sweet.

I Sing the Season Finale of Primeval

I Sing the Season Finale of <i>Primeval</i>

Fans of dinosaurs, Scottish accents and pixyish female members of S Club 7 walking around in their underwear have likely already discovered Primeval on BBC America. The Brit import features oversized bugs and reptiles from not only the past, but the future, as well -- all transported here via mysterious time portals to menace the general populace of England. (Yes, just England. If Torchwood can take place entirely in Cardiff, this show can limit itself to one island.) If you haven't been watching it, then you may not be aware that the first U.S. season (technically, the second British series, but since British series are only six or seven episodes long, BBC America combined them) ends Saturday night at 9:00, and it should be pretty awesome. After all, Episode 6 (the first British series' finale) featured the show's first futuristic predator, and ended with the main character changing history and turning his sensible love interest into a tarted-up tramp... which may or may not have been on purpose, now that we think about it. Check out a teaser clip of the finale after the jump.

Lost Finale: The Five Parts That Sucked

<i>Lost</i> Finale: The Five Parts That Sucked

Okay, so last night's Lost season finale -- the last episode before the big endgame starts in 2010 -- was pretty crazy. Jacob showed up, as did Bernard and Rose... even Vincent the dog! But it had a lot of stuff going on, and not all of it was good. In fact, some of it was annoying as hell, so we thought we'd run down the five things that annoyed us the most. Obviously, this is going to be a very spoilery discussion, so if you haven't seen the episode yet, by all means do not read any further, unless you're looking for a reason to be angry with us.

Community: It’s Time For Saying Goodbye

<i>Community</i>: It’s Time For Saying Goodbye

In the immortal words of T.S. Eliot, "Well now that's done: and I'm glad it's over." Or maybe, "This is the way the world Community ends: Not with a bang but a whimper" would be more apropos. Whichever Eliot line you chose to go with, Community's fourth season (and, potentially, series) finale "Advanced Introduction to Finality" was a definite off-note on which to end a season that was already often out of tune.

Girls: The Good, the Bad and the Funny

<I>Girls</i>: The Good, the Bad and the Funny

From here on out, whenever a character has a completely out-of-nowhere (but not improbable) engagement or, God forbid, surprise wedding, it should be referred to as pulling a Draper. Used in a sentence: "Jessa and Chris O'Dowd totally Draper'd us in the Girls Season 1 finale."

Up All Night: Baby’s First Year

<i>Up All Night</i>: Baby’s First Year

Just like the adorable baby girl whose birth set the series in motion, it's been fun to watch how Up All Night has grown and changed over the course of its first year of life. When it premiered in September, it was a comedy about how a free-spirited married couple adjusts to the responsibilities of child-rearing. But last night's season finale perfectly illustrated what the show has morphed into since the pilot: a female-driven workplace sitcom that gets more comic mileage out of the adult relationships at the office rather than the parent/child stuff at home. (That the baby's most significant bit of screentime last night came in the post-credits teaser indicates just how much the show's focus has shifted.)
