Had a feeling this was all just a long "trailer" for the movie.....

Went back a couple pages and didn't see any mention of this....if I'm repeating, sorry.

Second season is up for pre-order on Amazon.  As I write this, there's no release date listed.



(BTW, Amazon recommended this to me because I added a "25th Anniversary Edition" of The Last Starfighter to one of my wish lists in case there turns out to be some reason to double-dip this....Amazon sees a connection other than sci-fi?)

Wow.  You've somehow managed to make this news even worse, Tyrant.  I'm impressed!
Correction: the coat hanger should be upside down.

I'm still shaking my head over this.  Especially with the new movie out.


And it was just starting to get really awesome...

There there. Maybe someone will write a really GOOD fanfic and....

Wait...I'm not helping, am I?

In all seriousness, I'm upset as well. I know FOX is just being the business that it is and such, but I'm tired of creative quality always being thrown on the chopping block in the name of profit. This was a really good show and it irks me that it's gone when so much crap remains on the air.

Well, if they wanted to, they could at least make a direct-to-DVD finale movie. It might feel a bit rushed, but at least there'd be some closure. But I doubt they'll even bother and leave us hanging on what happened when John traveled to the future, was reunited with Derek (sort of), and met his dad.

Well ALF was eventually resolved by a direct-to-TV movie. Then again, those were different times. Maybe we can at least hope for a novel-sequel, or a comic-book season 3. There are some low-budget ways to get the story out to the people if the story wants to get out.

It's weird, though...Fox seems to have a habit of cancelling things right when people are starting to get an interest in it.  To wit:

Family Guy: Swapped around on a bunch of different nights, cancelled, DVD sales go through the roof, return to Seth McFarlane on their knees begging him to come back.

Firefly: Not one I watched, but saw Serenity and thought it was decent.  Fans have been clamoring for this to come back and, despite the DVD sales, Fox seemed like they'd rather fart in a dumpster, let it fester for a few weeks, then dive headfirst into it than renew this show.  Yet, despite the fact that Dollhouse, good or not, is one of Joss Whedon's weaker ideas, they don't seem keen in putting THAT on the chopping block.

But at the same time, Fox will sometimes let some pretty awful nonsense stay on well past its due date as well.  "The War at Home?"  The REALLY poor man's "Married with Children?"  That lasted two seasons.

I think what the cable companies need to start doing is having Nielsen-type chips implanted in cable boxes that allow (voluntary) enrollment in a ratings demographic, so that if you DVR a show or tune in actively, it sends a ratings hit to the company.  I think the demographics would change considerably if they started doing that.  I know people that were upset that "The Unit" got the boot, too, which fought (and won) to stay on the air for an extra season.

Yeah, I always wonder who these people are that are getting those frigging Nielsen boxes. 'Cause they sure as hell don't reflect my viewing preferences.

Just wanted to resurrect this thread because I got both seasons at work for 12 bucks each.  I don't know if it's just at the Wal-Mart I work at or if it's everywhere, but if it is all Wal-Marts, it's a good deal if you don't have them yet.

Probably part of Wal-Mart's "Cyber Monday" sales.
