...but i have been really disappointed with the season finales i've watched. bones just made me go 'what?' while ncis made me go 'oh, please.' and on top of that, the scc has been canceled.

bad time to be a fan of strong women characters as they're retconned and disappeared along with any sense of organic storytelling. but at least some semblance of misogyny is alive and well.

And how! I don't know from Bones, but I'm a long-time Joss Whedon fan who's spent half a season saying "WTF?!" at the bizarro sexism of Dollhouse. I feel like the wet blanket in a field of squee.

I've always been torn about NCIS. Good characters, but the more authority a woman has there, the more likely that she'll be killed. The more a woman's quirks can be read as diminishing her authority in relation to Gibbs; the more likely she'll live to see next season. Director, dead. Kate, dead and brought back to be a ghost in hooker-gear. Abby, as much as I like her, makes herself childlike and frames him with parental authority, and so takes the longevity prize.

Nope it is not just you. Supernatural was a bust for me and Bones was just a WTF. So yeah I was really disappointed.
