Sad but not overly surprised that ABC cancelled Forever... Although if you look at ANY (and I do mean any) article that mentions the show, even in the midst of other show's news, it very clearly had a strong and big fan base.  The petition to keep it got about 22k signatures before they closed it.

Oh well, at least Unforgettable is coming back for an unexpected season 4. Raised from the dead for the second time.
...and there he was, reigning supreme at number two.  The One... The Only... The Unabeefer.

That's too bad.  I enjoyed it.  At least the major season-length story arcs got some resolution in the final episode so there was some closure to it.

Netflix has been bombarded with calls and emails (and has requested more bombardment, oddly enough) and from what I've heard are "considering" picking Forever up. Not sure how strongly they are considering, but it doesn't seem that expensive a show to make compared to many others they have or have strongly considered in the past...

That sounds good.  And you're right: compared to some, that would be pretty cheap to produce.  Plus, for some reason, that show seems like a good fit for Netflix... oddly, now that you mention it, it seems a better fit for them than it does for network TV. ;D

Forever has 'Mr Fantastic' [Ioan Grufford] as a coroner who happens to be immortal.
