Okay so maybe the title is an exaggeration. Maybe it wasn’t the most annoying show ever. There could be a more annoying show in the future. I am happy dancing today because the show that would not end was finally cancelled! CSI: Miami is no more! Horatio is gone! Could that character be any more annoying. Writers, what were you thinking? The only thing that would have got me watching that show would have been killing off Horatio.
For some this is not a good day in TV for them. Some good shows got the axe. I loved Unforgettable. Alcatraz was pretty good too and had tons of potential. Over 200 inmates and guards were missing. They could have done episodes into season 10 with that. I’ll miss House but at least it’s going out on a high.
I’m not surprised Missing was cancelled, even though it is my kind of show. I love spies. Love a good kick ass heroine. But from the commercials I’d seen I knew the show wouldn’t do well. And I knew it wouldn’t be one that I would particularly like. I’m’ not a mom. And though I get the mother/child bond I would have been more interested in the show if it was her husband or boyfriend. Plus, how long could they drag it out before viewers just got bored? He couldn’t be “missing” forever. At least the old(er) show Missing (that started as 1-800-MISSING) had a different person missing every episode.
I mourn the passing of some of the shows but we must make way for new shows. I saw what might be coming to TV this Fall and it didn’t look good, though. How about someone in Hollywood gets creative and comes up with something new? Not a medical show, not a police show, not a show about lawyers.
There is one bright spot on the horizon, a show that looks great, creative (sort of – if a new Lost is creative). At least it’s not a cop show. J.J. Abrams has a new show coming this fall. Revolution. From IMDB – A group of people struggle to survive and reunite with loved ones in a world where all forms of energy have mysteriously disappeared.
I had an idea like that. In mine it was done on purpose by one person because things have gotten out of hand. Mine was going to be a book. I think J.J. Abrams probably did it better than I could have. Will I still write it? Maybe, maybe not. From the trailer I know mine is very different from the TV show.
Off to get some work done.
Until next time…
