Mugato: I'm showing my age here but I'm pissed we never found out who won the election on Benson. It was Governor Gatling vs Benson vs some other guy and the episode/series ended with Benson and Gatling holding hands (not in a gay way) about to see the results. And that was it.

President Reagan mercy-nuked the country to death before the final results were tabulated. Sorry to burst your bubble.

Jarhead_h: I didn't start watching Voyager until Seven showed up

Good decision, even if it was unintentional. That's when the show started not sucking. Sort of like how DS9 got good when Sisko shaved his head and got the goatee but worse than that because DS9 was never that bad. I wouldn't say Harry was a love interest. He had a crush on her for like one episode and she shot him down. Probably because she figured he wouldn't be alive for much longer since he was always the whipping boy in every episode. If something farked up was going to happen, it happened to him. And yeah, Chakotay. The most boring motherfarker in either quadrant.

And yes, even though Kirk/Spock/McCoy are icons, DS9 was the best overall show. A lot of it had to do with them dropping the "look how perfect and moral humanity is". If it was Picard's responsibility to trick the Romulans into joining the Dominion war, we'd all be speaking Dominion. And if "Hue" the Borg wandered onto DS9 ans Sisko had that paradox virus, the Borg would be one chapter called "The Massacre of Wolf 359...Then the Borg all died somehow".

kmmontandon: Ishkur: Plan on doing that for Heroes and The Wire next (I'm a little behind).

I wouldn't recommend that for Heroes.

Seriously, don't bother.

Heroes only had one season as far as I'm concerned.

Just film an ending put it in the can. Then update it as the show continues until cancellation.

/ What happened to Super train did Amtrak discontinue the route ?

Supes: phlegmmo: ...realty TV era...

[www.americanrealtyworld.com image 230x208]

Typo aside, the article actually brings up a fair point. I rarely watch premieres anymore, because I don't want to actually LIKE something only to see it gone 5 episodes later. I made the mistake of getting hooked on Awake just this past year by doing just that, even though it was clear by the 3rd episode or so the show wasn't going to make it.

It's way easier just to wait a season (or midway through the first season if the show is a runaway success). Then you don't get the unneeded attachment to failures, and in these internet days it's incredibly easy to catch up on any show.

This is why I only started watching Breaking Bad this year.

WhippingBoy: You know what's worse than not wrapping up a series before it ends?

The final episode of "Lost".

"Lost"'s finale was far more compelling than that of The Sopra-

I'm still mad about the way they ended Forever Knight... with Lacroix about to stake Nick! That was just not nice to the fans! :( They knew the series wasn't ever coming back, why not end it the way it was originally written to be ended - with everyone dying and Lacroix going up to the roof to burn in the morning sun... would have been better closure.

ExperianScaresCthulhu: see also: No Ordinary Family .. which found its audience after the show was cancelled. The curse of netflix and DVDs :( Sometimes you don't find the real gems until it's far, far too late.

wait, No Ordinary Family has a following now? I thought it was crap that only benefited from having a good cast.

vrax: Since it hasn't been mentioned, WTF did SyFy do with Sanctuary?! That show had developed pretty nicely, big stuff going on, and then bzzzt.

Also, "The IT Crowd"! OK, sure, not a massive serialized epic, but goddammit!

I heard it got canned, along with Alphas.
