Hey ATA Listeners, this week’s podcast is called “Adrenaline” because this title and the song by Gavin Rossdale is the best way to describe our favorite Season Finale of the year, the Person of Interest episode “Firewall”, which Nico hailed as the best hour on television next to Game of Thrones for simply maintaining its regular format while providing us with action worthy of a Finale. However, with this also being Across The Airwaves’ Finale as we head into a short Summer hiatus we had some intense adrenaline filled action to deal with on our own.
For the most part, this episode started out calm like Person of Interest with our review on the Finale for Once upon a Time and our favorite comedic moments from Modern Family but then the drama amped up with our reviews on the Finales for Bones, Supernatural and the whopping three episodes that rounded out Community’s finale. Don’t get me wrong, even though we were apprehensive about the concept at first, Nico and I really loved all three episodes of Community believing they fit together really well in a writer’s triumph for Dan Harmon. But alas, this victory was bittersweet as word has come out that Dan Harmon has been replaced as Showrunner making us face the possibility Community will never be the same.
In addition, this issue of being fearful for the future flooded into our discussions on Bones and Supernatural as both Finales left us disappointed. Again, the future looks a little brighter for Supernatural as Sera Gamble the Showrunner who diminished the show’s quality during Season Six is now gone. Although, Bones on the other hand, there Finale could have been the best episode of the series, if it wasn’t marred by the second half of this season jumping the shark, leaving the question on if we are going to continue covering Bones in the Fall as our ATA Season Finale cliffhanger.
By the way with our favorite live-action shows now on hiatus, we are going to be taking a two-week hiatus to further develop the Across The Airwaves Website and plan out our summer programming but Michael’s show ATA Retro Reviews will be continuing as well as DC Nation until those cartoon series go on hiatus. Also keep an eye out for our return episode featuring our favorite comedic moments from the Modern Family Season Finale and a discussion on Nickelodeon’s new Avatar Series, The Legend of Korra.
