I decided to write this after seeing Miguel’s post about Amazon Prime.
I’m a huge Sci-Fi fan. The deeper and more intriguing the show, the more I am into it.
That also makes me the Charlie Brown of TV watchers.
The incomplete list of Sci-Fi shows I fell in love with just to have them canceled during a cliffhanger prematurely is (in no particular order but my memory):
Space: Above and Beyond
The River (more fantasy horror but still good)
Almost Human (the JJ Abrams one with Karl Urban)
The newest one I was into was Colony. What a great show. Yes, it started a little slow but dear sweet baby Jesus it got intriguing.
We were finally into the big reveal. We knew that the Hosts were in a war with another alien race. We finally understood what “The Greatest Day” was all about. We know why Will kept getting spared.
THE FUCKS AT USA NETWORK CANCELED IT!!!
They pulled a Lucy van Pelt. Nobody likes Lucy van Pelt.
I have hope from the outpouring of fan support on social media that USA might give us a fourth season just to bring the show to closure. Jericho and Fringe were brought back for a final half season to wrap things up.
USA needs to do us dedicated fans some justice. Or let Netflix pick it up since they are carrying the first two seasons.
I know I shouldn’t get pissed. Charlie Brown never learns his lesson either. Every time a good Sci-Fi show hits TV the studio is going to rip it out from under us just when it gets good.
