So another television season has come and gone, and it is time to check the accuracy (or lack thereof) of my previous
All in all, boy do my predictions suck. Let’s get a breakdown:
Alias: I had predicted that Lauren would go good at the end, but that she would die, thus somehow preventing Vaughn and Syd from getting back together. Not only was I wrong on the first point (although they did play with the idea a bit,) but on the second point, I couldn’t have been more wrong. Though Lauren did die, and Vaughn did kill her, Syd and Vaughn didn’t just get back together, they actually made out while Vaughn was shooting Lauren. Seriously.
I was right about my secondary prediction of Sloane having a hidden motive, though. It was revealed that he and he daughter (who can solve complex equations in her head while in a drug-induced stupor) are running off to find the Rambaldi artifact together. For what purpose, who knows? Nobody cares about Rambaldi but the crack-smoking writers.
American Idol: Boy, I didn’t see that one coming. I predicted the top three to be George Huff, LaToya London, and Fantasia Barrino, in that order. Little did I know that George and LaToya would be voted off fairly early on. Crazy teenyboppers.
Again, though, I was right about John Stevens being painfully boring.
Friends: Finally one that I was spot-on about. Ross and Rachel did indeed ride off into the proverbial sunset.
Survivor: All-Stars: I’m pretty sure Rob didn’t win, but I think he came in second. Not bad for someone who’s never seen the show.
Star Wars: Episode III: This still remains to be seen, but I stand by my predictions.
The O.C.: A fairly odd season finale that ended with Ryan going back to Chino (i.e. “Da Ghetto”), Marissa going back to her alcoholic ways, and Seth sailing off to Tahiti in a very small, dangerous-looking boat. But we were still treated to Peter Gallagher’s fantasmic eyebrows, so it was all good. In the meantime, maybe I’ll check out North Shore, i.e. “The O.C., but in Hawaii.”
