Lost - The final season starts on Feb. 2!
Chuck - I love this show and it's been way too long since its game-changing season 2 finale. We get it back tomorrow night!
Big Love - How much more adorable can Margene get and what will Nikki get up to? Tomorrow night we get to start finding out.
24 - I enjoyed last season quite a bit and hope this season can stay that course. We'll see starting next Sunday.
Treme - The new HBO series from David Simon (The Wire). Yes, please. It starts it April, I think.
Kick-Ass - I read the first 2 issues of the comic and decided to wait for the trade. While that hasn't materialized, the trailers for this movie make it look like a ton of fun. Man, I hope so. (Apr. 16)
Iron Man 2 - Duh. (May 7)
Shutter Island - I liked the book it's based on (by Dennis Lehane) and I really liked the last movie Scorcese and DiCaprio did together (The Departed). (Feb. 19)
Hot Tub Time Machine - It looks supremely silly and will be a perfect movie to see while I'm on spring break. (Mar. 26)
Date Night - Steve Carrell and Tina Fey together? Sold! (Apr. 9)
Inception - The trailers for this Christopher Nolan movie have me very interested. (July 16)
Scott Pilgrim - I'm not sure when it will be out but I can't wait for the 6th and final volume.
Planetary Vol. 4 - Last fall's long-awaited release of the last issue means I will soon be able to read the last 9 issues of the series (and I'll probably reread the rest of the series in anticipation).
Astro City - This year will see the conclusion of the epic "The Dark Age" storyline and the return of the book as an ongoing comic.
Adventure Comics - At some point this year, Paul Levitz will return to writing the Legion of Super-Heroes on a regular basis in this book. I'm nervous but hopeful.
Flash - I'm not in love with the fact Barry Allen is back, as I'm a huge Wally West fan. That said, Geoff Johns and Francis Manapul were awesome on Adventure Comics and I hope they can continue to produce at a high level.
Casanova - Matt Fraction has been tweeting about work on this series; I hope its return is accompanied by a trade of the second storyline, which I've still not read.
Batman: The Return of Bruce Wayne - Grant Morrison writes (and a bunch of artists draw) about Bruce Wayne working his way through time to come back to Gotham. Sounds fun, doesn't it?
The Unnamed by Joshua Ferris - I enjoyed his debut and am looking forward to the new one.
The Thousand Autumns of Jacob de Zoet by David Mitchell - This is the follow-up to Cloud Atlas, one of my favorite books of the last decade.
Wild Child by T.C. Boyle - A new book of short stories from one of my favorite writers.
The Ask by Sam Lipsyte - I loved his last book, Home Land, and hope this one is as entertaining.
Vampire Weekend/Contra - I should listen to this over at NPR before I buy it. (Jan. 12)
Eels/End Times - Six months after the highly-underrated Hombre Lobo, we get another one? Joy! (Jan. 19)
Spoon/Transference - Can't wait! (Jan. 19)
Midlake/The Courage of Others - It's been a while since their last one and we supposedly get a bit of a different sound. (Feb. 2)
Jason Falkner/I'm OK You're OK - This has been out in Japan for years and it's been years since we got the Bliss Descending EP. High hopes. (Feb. 16)
The Whigs/In the Dark - They've put out 2 great rock albums; here's to a 3rd! (Mar. 2)
Ted Leo and the Pharmacists/The Brutalist Bricks - Really looking forward to this one. (Mar. 9)
Drive-By Truckers/The Big To-Do - This is supposed to be pretty-rocking but it's the DBTs, so I'm buying it no matter what. (Mar. 16)
She & Him/Volume Two - Zooey Deschanel and M. Ward back together again. (Mar. 23)
We should also see new releases from Arcade Fire, The National, and New Pornographers this year too!
