In my humble opinion, there are only a few ways to tell if a T.V. show is truly good.
1) If it makes you cry.
2) If it makes you laugh out loud
3) It makes you so worried about the characters that you find yourself freaking out during commercial breaks, and ignoring people when they talk to you. Talking to the T.V. also probably fits into this category.
In my experience, there are very few shows that fit this criteria.
Lost - 1,2, and 3
Glee - 1 and 2
Warehouse 13 - 1 (just tears to my eyes, but still) 2 and 3 (damn you, cliffhanger season finales)
Sanctuary - 1 and 2. Haven’t yet got to three, but I have a feeling. (Damn you untitledsymphony for starting me on this show. Like I need another thing to waste my time)
Eureka - 2 It almost got a one, but not quite touching enough
These are all of the shows that I watch a lot. As in, if I miss an episode, I watch it the day after on the internet. There are, however, quite a few shows that fall into the number 2 category that I will watch. These include:
Scrubs, House, The Big Bang Theory, Castle, and Leverage.
Also, my roommate is really into The O.C. As am I. I’ve gone to the Dark Side. I am ashamed. Why did I have to try to be friendly and watch that stupid show? Now I am addicted. Stupid, stupid me. Grrr.
Anyways, looking back at this list of shows that I watch, I’ve realized what a total nerd I am. YES! NERDFIGHTERS! (Thanks again untitledsymphony, for yet another obsession.)
Yay for Lost.
But also sad - It just hit me that Lost is over.
(If you need me, I’ll be in the corner crying my eyes out.)
(Side note. Can you actually cry your eyes out? Like literally sob until your eyes fall out of your face? This must be investigated.)
Also, if you see the numbers 4 8 15 16 23 42 in a random place (such as desk or a bathroom stall) it was me. :) Because I get bored and enjoy spreading awesome.
Also, I just realized I have inordinate usage of parenthetical clauses in almost everything that I write. Interesting.

Jorge Garcia after reading the final episode of Lost for the first time.
Star Wars and Lost mash-up
yeah this was pretty inevitable
i promise this is the last version of this drawing i’ll ever make you look at
DESMOND: Penny…Penny, you answered. You answered, Penny.
[In London, Penelope is at home standing by a Christmas tree.]
PENNY: Des, where are you?
DESMOND: I’m…I’m, I’m on a boat. Um…I’ve been on an island, and — Oh my god, Penny. Is that really you?
PENNY: Yeah! Yes, it’s me!
DESMOND: You believe me? You still care about me?
PENNY: Des, I’ve been looking for you for the past three years. I know about the island. I’ve been researching—-[static]—-and then when I spoke to your friend Charlie, that’s when I knew you were still alive. That’s when I knew I wasn’t crazy. Des, are you still there!?
DESMOND: Yes, yes, I’m here! I’m still here, can you hear me?
PENNY: Yeah, yeah, that’s better.
DESMOND: I love you, Penny. I’ve always loved you. I’m so sorry. I love you.
PENNY: I love you too.
DESMOND: I don’t know where I am, but—
PENNY: I’ll find you, Des—
DESMOND: —I promise—
PENNY: —no matter what—
DESMOND: —I’ll come back to you—
PENNY: —I won’t give up—
BOTH: I promise. I love you.
[Static cuts them off.]
SAYID: I’m sorry. The power source went dead, it’s all we have.
[Desmond walks toward Sayid, his memory of him and his time on the island returning.]
DESMOND: Thank you, Sayid. [They shake hands] It was enough.
SAYID: Are you alright now?
DESMOND: Aye. I’m perfect.
This scene always makes me cry.
