IT'S NOT ME. IT'S YOU.

Nothing is official yet, but 'Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles' may have joined the following shows last night:

'Now & Again'
'Soap'
'Coronet Blue'
and maybe 'Kyle XY'. (I'm still five episodes back on that show. Saving them for a rainy day... a rainier day.)

That is, in the face of cancellation, they finished on a cliff-hanger in the hopes the network would have to bring them back to see it resolved.* But in each of those cases, it was not to be; and 'T:TSCC' may be joining their club.

On the other hand, there's the American version of 'Life On Mars', which was given the chance to resolve its mysteries before cancellation. And was the audience in general thankful?


I have no faith in the general TV audience.

Just sayin', is all.....

BCnU!

*Actually, in the case of 'Coronet Blue', by the time the network decided to bring back the summer hit, everyone involved had already signed contracts for new projects.

My wife felt the same about LoM. I understood, and was satisfied with the conclusion, but I will admit I was surprised a major U.S. network would value the integrity of the show's story over possible future ratings. Go figure.

I didn't watch any of the shows, but I can understand people's frustration at them ending on a cliffhanger. I remember that Crime Story in the Eighties did the same. It ended in a cliffhanger that was never resolved.
