End of the Year TV Meme  
Which TV shows did you start watching in 2011?
Once Upon A Time, The Fades, The Vampire Diaries, Revenge, Ringer, Falling Skies, The Borgias, Case Histories, Game of Thrones, Doctor Who (once again)

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2011?
The only one that comes to mind is Supernatural, though that was a long time in the making really. I started losing interest last year/season and I guess this year finalized my departure of the whole thing altogether, for my own sanity. I find myself retreating to better, healthier things that doesn't end up in getting migraines from being enraged more often than I should be getting from the stupidity that is coming out from that show.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2011? Why?
There's quite a handful actually, and the only excuse is that I'm kinda lazy and haven't gotten around to it yet. This explains why I am also behind on some of the shows I am currently watching as well.

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2012?
This coincides with the question above. I'm definitely going to be checking out American Horror Story, since I've been hearing good things about it. Lost Girl, Downtown Abbey, Terra Nova, Homeland, Modern Family.....just a shitload of things I've been meaning to get around to checking out but haven't yet. As for new shows that will be premiering in 2012, Awake with Jason Isaacs, because you know that shit is going to be fucking amazing. Like, my body is already ready for it, you have no idea.

Which TV show do you think you might let go of in 2012 unless things significantly improve?
Nothing really comes to mind, to be honest.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2011?
Glee. Now let me explain, I've never been impressed with Glee. I tried watching it before and it wasn't what I expected it to be, so I dropped it, and never watched an entire episode since. Of course my interest peaked because of two things: Santana Lopez and Brittana. I've been keeping tabs on the show mostly for those things. Unfortunately, the show has not delivered on that front. It shouldn't be surprising, given that this is Glee we're talking about, but I think I've been least impressed with their handling of Santana's storyline (it could have been better without Finn getting away with his asshole behavior while Santana has suffer the consequences for everything) and not having anything Brittana whatsoever. I guess that kinda counts since while I don't watch the show, I am very invested in their storylines and when a show doesn't give a shit about decent character storylines (or potentially amazing storylines if they put in the effort in creating one) it offends me.

Other than that, there really hasn't been any other show that has impressed me the least this year. Excluding SPN because that's a given anyway.

Which TV shows do you think you'll never let go of no matter how crappy they get?
Oh, that's kind of hard. I would stop watching anything if they got overbearingly crappy, but I'd say Doctor Who, Haven, Once Upon A Time, and Warehouse 13. They are my feel-good, happy-times kind of shows that are ridiculous and heartfelt and make me smile. Unless they cross the line into irredeemable crappiness, I will never stop watching them.

Downton Abbey is hands down one of the best shows I have ever seen. I swear though, that Julian Fellows loves to mess with the fans of the show (especially in season two /all the creys).

Also Case Histories!! I really hope they make more (and that his daughter comes back because her accent was adorable!).

I've been hearing a lot of good things about Downtown Abbey, and yeah this is mostly because of Tumblr and people posting the pretty and I simply cannot look away from my dash. But I really do wanna check it out. :)

No need for wondering, it's been confirmed that there's going to be a second season of Case Histories. ;D

It is one of the prettiest shows ever, I blame most of this on Michelle Dockery and her amazing face. Keep a box of tissues near, especially in season two - I honestly couldn't get through a single episode without crying.

OMG YAY! That is awesome!

You should totally watch American Horror Story :D I think it's brilliant, in a trippy, wtf is going on kind of way. The finale just happened and it was sort of fulfilling and weirdly heartwarming for a horror show, while still bringing suspense. Beware the fandom, though. Beware.
