The Fin Awards
Now that Lost has had its season finale, every TV show I watch is on hiatus. In an effort to cheer myself up, I will now hand out the first annual season-finale honors. I call these the "Fin Awards."
(All honors are given by me to the shows I actually watch. And, I don't watch that many shows, so . . .)
Battlestar Galactica's use of "All Along the Watchtower"
Lost. They totally set me up to be excited about next season. Heroes might be considered a cliffhanger, with all the "who is going to be dead" stuff. But Lost just flipped the whole show.
24. A show given to cliffhangers ended a lack-luster season with a solid character piece.
Best Season Wrap-up
Heroes. Tied up a lot of loose ends, while leaving us just enough to bring us back for more.
Matthew Fox. Great, great work.
Colonel Tighe on Battlestar Galactica. How does he handle the knowledge that he is everything he hates? Get to your stations!
Best "Thank God" moment
Jim asking Pam to dinner.
Most Badass Moment
Four way tie:
Hiro running Sylar through on Heroes
Sayid breaking that guy's neck with his feet on Lost.
Ryan telling Kelly "you and I are done," then looking at the camera on the Office
Apollo and Starbuck meeting again, Battlestar
Best Overall Season Finale
Lost. Have to give it to them. I still think Battlestar is the best show on TV, followed by Heroes. But Lost served it up.
