(In my head, that is sung to the tune of "Another Suitcase in Another Hall" from Evita.)

* Photos from the Doctor Who Christmas special. Looks like those who thought this show needed Matt Smith naked (do those people exist...?) will be getting their wish.

* How I Met Your Mother will be putting us out of our misery in March, instead of dragging this out until May.

* Insanely long movie titles punctuated with colons are the BANE OF MY EXISTENCE. Okay, that is perhaps an overreaction, but it makes talking about Marvel movies super annoying.

* Love it or hate it, I think we can all enjoy the Love Actually drinking game.

And the annual TV meme, snagged from [personal profile] likeadeuce:

Which TV shows did you start watching in 2013?

This question is ALWAYS daunting, lol. I watch too much TV.

New in 2013: 1600 Penn, The Americans, Orphan Black, Broadchurch, The Goodwin Games, The Fosters, Graceland, Under the Dome, The Bridge, Orange is the New Black, Mom, Agents of SHIELD, Trophy Wife, The Crazy Ones, The Michael J. Fox Show, Masters of Sex, and Ground Floor. (In my defense, at least two of those shows have already been canceled.)

New to me: Elementary, Game of Thrones, Girls, Justified, Party Animals, Veep, Wallander, and Weeds.

Which TV shows did you let go of in 2013?

As I've said before, once I get into a show, I rarely give up on it, so other than Revolution, which I ditched at the end of last season, these fall into two categories.

Shows that ended or were canceled this year: Last Resort, Bunheads, 1600 Penn, Go On, Touch, The Office, Smash, The Goodwin Games, Burn Notice, Dexter, and Breaking Bad.

Shows I watched a few episodes but couldn't get into: Bates Motel, Defiance, Rectify, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Ironside, The Originals, and Better Off Ted.

Which TV shows did you mean to get into but didn't in 2013? Why?

I am keeping a list. Why didn't I... um, HAVE YOU SEEN THE LENGTH OF MY LIST?

Which TV shows do you intend on checking out in 2014?

I'd like to knock at least a few off that list. New shows I am looking forward to: Killer Women, Enlisted, Intelligence, and Resurrection.

Which TV show impressed you least in 2013?

I think Dexter wins this category hands down. I have watched a lot of disappointing television this year, but that was BY FAR the worst.

Which TV show did you enjoy the most in 2013?

Fortunately, I also watched a lot of very good television, but... I mean. Breaking Bad. (Although I'm not sure "enjoyed" is exactly the right word for that experience, lol...)

I've been told to watch Bates Motel. Is it not that great??

+1 to both Dexter and Breaking Bad, obviously.
