  1. Unless you’re a Merlinian. Then you stop at the hopeless buying things stage, because the show never comes back ;-;

  2. Ah, I’m in the middle stages of Supernatural withdrawal. I first started the show in April though and sped through all 172 episodes by mid-June, so I haven’t had to wait as long as most people.

  3. I’m waiting for Grimm, Modern Family, the Middle, and SOB ALPHAS! ALPHAS IS NEVER COMING BACK BOOOO! (Join my groups of all of these shows! :p)
