While everyone lists the things they're thankful for in terms of family, friends, loved ones, life experiences and all that mumbo jumbo, I need to send out a few thanks for the pop culture, TV, and movie related things that helped make this year awesome.
1. Superhero Movies
I am so glad this trend is still going strong. Even with a couple duds like THE GREEN LANTERN, they're producing some great ones like CAPTAIN AMERICA. Plus, I'm so excited for the upcoming AVENGERS!
My favorite of the new shows, it's definitely been keeping me on my toes! While the first few episodes were a little formulaic with a "revenge-a-week," it's become more interesting and wrenches get thrown in Emily's plans.
3. Netflix Instant
While Netflix has had a less than stellar year, I'm still thankful for the access to movies and TV at my fingertips. The fact that I've been able to catch up on Parks & Recreation while at the gym still blows my mind. Not to mention the recent announcement that when (if?) Arrested Development comes back, it'll be available exclusively on Netflix. Technology is amazing!
4. The Vampire Diaries
While I haven't been recapping this season, it's still one of the best shows on television! The plot moves at a breakneck pace, and even the exposition/mythology explaining episodes are handled deftly and are engaging.
5. What exactly is a "party pooper?"
This hilarious video is still one of my most popular posts and it's not hard to see why!
6. Saturday Night Live
This season has been fantastic, with a great list of hosts and musical guests. Plus, they gave us this gem:
7. Get Out of There Cat
LOLcats may be a little played out by now, but cats being where they don't belong? Love it!
I love Disney, I'm starting to get in to fashion a bit more, and this is the perfect blend of both. Girly, geeky, and cute - right up my alley!
Of course, I'm thankful for my readers! I love interacting with everyone in the comments, on the Facebook page, and on Twitter. Thanks so much for reading and watching what I post. I really, truly appreciate every one of you and am glad others enjoy Pop Culture like random viral videos and memes, TV and films as much as I do. :)
HAPPY THANKSGIVING!! What pop culture things are you thankful for this year?
Not sure what to do this long weekend? I recommend you see THE MUPPETS!
