Jean TellerLooks like it’s been a while since we talked TV. After saying goodbye to two favorite series within the last week, it seems like a good time to check the schedule, what’s on my DVR and what’s coming up.

Battlestar Galactica ended its reign on the Sci Fi Channel last week. After four seasons, spread over five years, we finally found our favorite travelers settled and most of our questions were answered. I adored the three-part finale, and I’m looking forward to checking out the new prequel series, Caprica. A movie, The Plan, is set to air in November.

Battlestar Galatica's gallant crew.

Wednesday night, the series finale of Life on Mars aired on ABC. This was a favorite of mine, and I was very disappointed it had been cancelled even before a full season had aired. However, I have to admit that I wasn’t sure how the premise could continue for any length of time, and I was extremely happy with the way the series was wrapped up. Here’s hoping the cast members soon find other TV homes– it would be a shame for television viewers to be deprived of the talents of this crew: O’Mara, Michael Imperioli, Gretchen Mol, Jonathan Murphy, and the always great Harvey Keitel.

Life on Mars will be missed.

So what does that leave on my DVR? Oh, you just had to ask, didn’t you?! Believe me, I am not suffering when it comes to TV viewing.

I feel you when it comes to feeling drained by my television shows. I heard that Kings was going to be canceled somewhere. A lot of the shows you talk about in here seemed like great shows that I just didn't have time to watch. I guess that's how a lot of people feel unfortunately, and thus their demise. :( I am enjoying Chuck, Heroes, Grey's Anatomy and Smallville the most this year. Enjoy your filled-up DVR! :)
