All Kona wants for Festivus

by Kona Gallagher, posted Dec 19th 2008 7:29PM
Since I'm still new enough at TV Squad not to exist on the "Meet the TV Squad" page, this is my first Festivus. It's nice to be able to dig deep into my heart for all of my TV wishes in hopes that some internet fairy will grant them and make the television landscape just a little bit more awesome... for me, at least.

Without further ado, here is what I want for Festivus:
  • Christina Hendricks and the rest of the Mad Men cast should guest-star on more shows. Ever since I started watching Mad Men, I've noticed Hendricks popping up places. She's on an episode of Without a Trace here, an old episode of Cold Case there... I love me some Joan Holloway and Mad Men isn't returning soon enough. I loved seeing Jon Hamm host SNL, and I'm super excited about his upcoming guest stint on 30 Rock. More please!

  • I want Jim and Pam to actually get married on The Office, and for Holly to come back. I hate shows that focus too much on "will they or won't they" relationships. The Office has handled the Jim and Pam thing in the least-annoying way possible, but they better not push their luck. These two need to actually walk down the aisle with a minimal amount of bullshit getting in their way. This will free up the writers to concentrate on other relationships, like Michael and Holly, which I loved. Bring Amy Ryan back! I don't care if she's off making movies. I loved Holly.
  • Life on Mars and The Mentalist really need to live up to their potential. Out of all of the new shows this season, Life on Mars and The Mentalist are the two that initially blew me away. However, after the first few episodes of both shows, the bloom came off the rose. The Mentalist needs to delve deeper into the whole Red John thing, and Life on Mars needs to stay away from Sam's constant "in the future" blathering and interactions with people he knows in 2008.
  • BBC needs to vary the reruns of Ramsay's Kitchen Nightmares that they air. I discovered the American version first, mainly because I didn't used to have BBC America, but I love this show. I haven't been watching it for very long, but it has been months since I've been able to catch an episode I haven't seen already. I know the seasons are short, but Kitchen Nightmares has been on for years; I'm pretty sure there are more than half a dozen episodes.
  • Chuck and Blair need to keep on being awesome. Gossip Girl, a show that I thought was only okay last year, has quickly become one of my favorite things to watch. I don't give a crap about most of the characters, but the deliciously evil Chuck and Blair keep me coming back every week. Don't ruin this for me.
  • Damian Lewis should be on TV all the time. In case you don't know, this guy is seriously hot. Oh, I've mentioned this already? I don't care. It bears repeating. I'm glad that Life is doing so well in the ratings, not only because it's a really good show, but because it means a regular dose of Damian Lewis. It's not enough for me though. I want him to host SNL and guest star on like, every show, ever. That would be great. Thanks in advance.
