For the most part I took a break from movies this week, though I did rewatch Lincoln before putting my list of Top Ten Movies of 2012 together and, as is necessary, I watched National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation. I also continued my journey into rewatching "The West Wing" and have so far watched the first 16 episodes of the first season and I simply can't get enough.
I don't watch a lot of television shows and, in fact, I'd say I have three shows I would call my favorites and with them I don't really need anything else. Those would be "The West Wing", "Seinfeld" and the original "Star Trek" (although I actually really liked the "Enterprise" series as well). With that I have my drama, comedy and sci-fi taken care of. Yeah, there's more out there, but there are also a lot of movies I have yet to see and, for me, those come first.
Otherwise, seeing how this will be the final What I Watched column of 2012, I wanted to extend a "thank you" to all of you that participate and read this Sunday column, it has become one of the best features on this site.
I'm sure many of you will remember back in July when I almost got rid of this column entirely. The number of comments had grown limited to the point on May 27 there were only three to the last three weekends where we had 110, 132 and 115 respectively and it's not a bunch of meaningless comments. It's actual conversation that's taking place. You are engaging one another, making suggestions and I see many of you actually watching the movies suggested by others. This is what a movie website should be and your dedication is only going to make it better and better over the coming new year.
So, thank you again and here's to what will hopefully be a fantastic 2013! Happy New Year and let's hear what you watched over the last week!
