And For This, We Are Thankful: 2014 Edition

Happy Thanksgiving! Or happy random day if you do not celebrate Thanksgiving. May it be full of food and family members you love. We created a list of what we are thankful for, and hopefully it brings a smile to your face as it has ours. May your day be filled with joy.

Stephen Amell

We Sinceriously love you, Stephen Amell.

I’m thankful for him for too many reasons to count.- Kerry

 

Brooklyn 99

Still the best comedy on TV, it’s always dependably hilarious for 22 minutes straight. -Kerry

Bob’s Burgers

 I defy you to find a more supportive and loving family than the Belchers. – Kerry

Chris Pratt

You deserve all the success, Chris Pratt.

 Congrats on your blockbuster hits, Andy Dwyer. – Kerry

Charlotte Ross

 It’s almost like the Arrow writers created Charlotte Ross specifically to play Felicity’s mother. Even our wildest dreamcasts couldn’t have come close. -Kerry

Elementary

 Still my favorite drama on TV.

Playing House

If anything could possibly fill the void that was left by the cancellation of Trophy Wife, it’s Playing House. We need more Bocephus and Jandana immediately. – Kerry

I am thankful for the way some of our favorite shows are choosing to depict romances because it is nice to finally see couples who respect each other enough to love each the way they are. (e.g. Leslie/Ben (Parks and Recreation), Diggle/Lyla (Arrow), Robbie Lewis/Dr. Laura Hobson (Inspector Lewis)) -Brittany

Jane the Virgin

This new series has brought a big smile to my face. -Becca

Yahoo Screen

For giving Community a sixth season. #sixseasonsandamovie – Becca

John Cho

Who can seriously resist a man when he looks like this? – Becca

 

And for this, we are thankful

Happy Thanksgiving! And, if you’re not in the U.S., hello and welcome to Thursday, Nov. 28, 2013. We here at WWFTP are planning on spending the better part of today stuffing our faces. (Bread pudding? Bread pudding? Bread pudding?) On Friday, Becca will be heading out to work the sales; Kerry will be hitting the stores and drinking a (possibly) unhealthy amount of coffee; and I will be curled up, catching up on The Fades and finishing a present for my nephew.

But in the interest of celebrating the U.S.’s national day of gratitude, we thought we’d take the opportunity to share the things for which we’re thankful.

Kerry

Everything Is Bloomable

So much better than with that awful Island wig.

Stephen Amell. I’m not sure a more perfect leading man exists.

FSU football. And football in general.

Maycove

A genius, his locks, his partner and his tortoise. (Clyde is in his trailer.)

Jonny Lee Miller. His Sherlock Holmes is only getting better.

Hiddlesmell

I went with the derpiest photo I could find.

Chris Hemsworth and Tom Hiddleston.

Bo Dennis

Ain’t she great?

Tatiana Maslany, on both Orphan Black and Parks and Recreation.

Becca

The Scarlet Avenger

Wow. Robot faces are so *lifelike* these days.

Joss Whedon brought back Coulson. Clark Gregg is a joy to watch as he plays Coulson.

Whedonesque on Tumblr

As pretty in color as it is in black & white.

Joss Whedon’s Much Ado About Nothing. Shakespeare with actors from the Whedonverse is perfection.

Veronica Mar’s kickstarter. I’m not going to reveal how many times I saw the kickstarter and Ryan Hansen announcing Dick Casablancas would be back videos.

Felicity Sm0ak

She may be blonde, but she’s not *that* blonde.

Emily Bett Rickards was made a series regular on Arrow. Team Arrow would not be the same if we didn’t have the trio.

David Tennant, Life Ruiner

Yep.

David Tennant back on the small screen. (Including him soon being on the American version of Broadchurch; great choice, Fox.)

Film Onet

From left, Zachary Levi, Nathan Fillion and Tom Hiddleston at the premiere of “Thor: The Dark World.”

This picture exists.

Snarky Knightley on Emma Approved. I always have a hard time choosing between Mr. Darcy, Mr. Tilney and Mr. Knightley, and this web series is making it even harder.

Moff

Cobwebs, Books and Coffee

This has nothing to do with why I love this show, but it’s as perfectly weird *as* the show, so it works for me!

The cast of Sleepy Hollow is probably 90 percent of why this show works, and I’m so grateful it does because I need something a little bizarre to start my week.

Stop Then Rewind

And by ‘machine,’ Britta means ‘Thursdays at 8/7C on NBC, starting Jan. 2, 2014.’ Duh doy.

We finally have a start date for season five of Community, and whatever may come of the new season, at least I know when the Greendale Seven Six Five will be back on my screen.

I Lied Too

Good, bad or neutral as Switzerland, Acker as Root is both scary and scary good.

Amy Acker on Person of Interest. She’s always managed to bring charm to her roles, but her role on PoI has given her a chance to stretch her artistic limits as a character with questionable morals and even more questionable sanity.

Boys in Barrettes

Leslie Knope: Role Model. (No. Seriously.)

The ladies of Parks and Recreation, who manage to be everything I want to be when I grow up, both on- and off-screen.

Broadcast Archive @ the University of Maryland

What’s amazing about funny women? Is it that they’re funny? Or that people actually pay attention when they’re talking?

Carol Burnett winning the Mark Twain Prize for American Humor. I grew up watching her show, and between her professional talent and her personal grace under fire, I can’t imagine a better role model for an awkward, chatty little girl like I was.

And, finally, I’m thankful for Becca, who is the Marianne to my Elinor, and Kerry, who listens to my nonsense when I’m tired and rambling on pathetically. Both of them were willing to join me on this little blog adventure, and I’m so honored they did.
