We’re heading into that bittersweet part of the year where shows are airing their season — or series — finales so here’s a quick look at the finales airing tonight:
8:00 (CBS): 2 Broke Girls. If the rest of the season is any indication, the finale will probably feature Caroline rehashing the premise of the show and Max cracking jokes about her sad childhood with a few broad stereotypes to carry the plot along. It’s a one hour finale (really?) which means we’ll get double the amount of lines like “You really put the ‘ho’ in ‘Kinkos’” or “You put the ‘oh no’ in ‘kimono’” or “You take the ‘fun’ out of ‘funnel’” and really, this could go on forever. Oh, and Martha Stewart guest stars! Of course! But hey, it’s a massive hit, it’s already renewed for a second season, and there’s been a few good bits throughout the year so let’s hope they spend the summer fixing the flaws.
10:00 (ABC): Castle. Admittedly, I’m about a full season behind on Castle but despite that it seems like a fairly generic detective drama with a case of the week and heavy dose of “will they or won’t they?” it’s actually entertaining! It helps that it stars Nathan Fillion and his perfect face. It’s no replacement for Firefly, because nothing ever is, but it’s a good show to marathon during the summer when television is mostly boring repeats. Castle has been ace at delivering some great season finales and I wish I was all caught up so I could watch this one in real time.
