Top 5 reasons you know it must be winter hiatus in TVland:
1) The DVR reached 0% for the first time since...well, since the winter hiatus last year.
2) And then I promptly filled it up with sappy holiday movies from The Hallmark Movie Channel and ABC Family. In related news: I cannot wait to the watch The Mistle Tones, you guys.
3) My Netflix queue is getting whittled down...doesn't this seem like the perfect evening for a Sherlock rewatch? Though making Irene Adler a dominatrix makes me roll my eyes every time.
4) Most people get giddy for the upcoming holidays...I get giddy for the return of tv shows after the New Year like Justified, Merlin, Face Off, and yes, even Smash.
5) I couldn't come up with a fifth thing actually, but you can't have a list made up of only four items, right?
Newsflash: it's already here.
