Lost: Live Together, Die Alone

I had a bunch of stuff written about this episode, but it got eaten by the ether. Main points though… OMG, WTF.

What About Brian: The Importance of Being Brian

Alias: Reprisal, All the Time in the World (Series Finale)

That was actually a pretty satisfying finale. They really tied all the Rambaldi stuff together, there were a lot of cameos by cast from the past, and it ended really like you hoped it would, Sydney and Vaughn together, happy.

That 70's Show: Love of My Life, That 70's Finale (Series Finale)

Sad to see it go, even though this season hasn't been as good as season's past. At least they got Eric back.

Ding, dong, Marisa's dead! Though, if Caitlin is sticking around next season, I don't know if that's any better.
