Brusimm Cinema Static TV NewsThe 2011/2012 Fall TV season is slowly coming to a close and I’ve got some season finale dates for everyone, if you want to prepare for it and start setting DVRs now… just to get ahead of the game and all…

A few notes that caught my eye while compiling this list

CastleTahmoh Penikett guests on the finale and supposedly, all the emotional cards between the two love-torn birds will be put on the table.  … again.  I wonder when the showrunners will figure out we’re getting tired of that tease at the end of every season?

Joe Mantegna, Thomas Gibson, Shemar Moore and Dallas Clark in 'Criminal Minds'

Criminal Minds: Tricia Helfer guests on this season finale.  She’ll be an evil person.

CSI: Jaclyn Smith returns in her role as Hodges’ mother.

Seth Gabel and Anna Torv in 'Fringe'

The Fringe showrunners have shot two endings, just in case this isn’t a season finale, but a series finale.  Gads… everyone, buy more TV’s and tune them all in!!!!  (OK, that was only a joke.  That won’t help.

Grimm:  Prepare yourself… Grimm will be ending on a cliff hanger…  Gads, I seriously hate season-ending cliffhangers.

House Series Finale:  In the series ending episode, Olivia Wilde and Kal Penn reprise their roles.  (Raise your hand if you’ve been as disappointed as I’ve been with Wilde’s movie roles.  I’ve come to expect an intelligent woman out of Wilde from her role as Thirteen, but her movie roles seem to fall short of that.  It’s my own bad for setting myself up with a mis-guided expectation.

Missing:  I’m sorry… I haven’t caught this show yet or may never.  Every single promo I see for it, “mom” has this seriously angry look on her face and this marketing does not call out to me.  For all I know, I’m missing a serious, kick-ass series.

Modern Family:  No cliffhanger this season.

The Secret Circle: Talk of the season finale seems to be worded around the word “conclusion,” though I’m not seeing any news immediately on the show’s return or not.
