ABC Cancels 666

Why do I continue to put myself through this? I'm always giving shows a chance and liking a majority of them only to have them pull the rug out from under me.

Sigh.

I think I'm gonna have to reevaluate my watching habits asap. I just don't think it's worth it anymore to give new shows any more of my time. Unless it's something I have been waiting a long time to see get made, I see no point in tuning in. I might as well just wait for the DVD releases so that I'll know by the time it's on DVD what the status of said show is.

Ya know, I think you're bringing forward a very important idea.
In a way, I've been on the cusp of that kind of TV viewing. First, do I invest my time? 2nd, how do I watch it if I do want to get vested in it.

Our viewing habits are changing. Even this old mans habits after years of viewing a certain way. The younger generation brings a whole new spin.

I'll bet a quite a bit could be written about this.

Now are the networks listening or watching?

Well, for me Hulu was a Godsend. It freed me from the hostage mentality of having to watch shows on TV at THEIR time. With Hulu, the power shifted to me. I could watch whatever show I wanted at my own pace. But soon it became a double edge sword. Freeing up a lot of time and being able to work and watch at the same time, I was now able to watch even more shows (i.e. new shows). That's where my problem comes from and where I'm at now. With all these new shows I'm watching, I've opened myself up to being disappointed by the Networks for prematurely canceling some high quality shows. This is just the latest round of shows to bite the dust. Like I said, time to change it up for me so that I don't continue going down this road.

What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?



This should have been a huge episode, but the writer chose to go down the path of obscuring as much detail as possible about Jane and the Staircase aftermath. Drugging her for an entire hour at the hospital was boring, even if she did "talk" to someone else that experienced the same thing she is going through. I did like that they showed Alexis to be the muse of Brian and that he can't write when they are apart. None of this is gonna matter now that the show has been cancelled.

Hypnos



I liked this episode a lot. It was different in that they had Jane "time travel" back to the day to witness the murder of the woman that basically saved Jane's grandmother's life. I thought that having Whoopi Goldberg as the one that helps Jane go back in time was a nice inside joke. For those of you that have short memories, Whoopi played a similar character in the movie Ghost. I also thought the twist at the end of the episode was great and one that I didn't see coming at all. Having Laurel turn out to be Sasha, the daughter of Gavin and Olivia, who was believed to be the victim of suicide was a nice touch.

Really strange that ABC (which can go f*ck themselves) would pull the final 4 episodes so they can air it this summer, if we are lucky. The speculation by fans is that the network is going to try to relaunch the series from the start and hope it can catch fire and thus save the show. As much as I would like to see it play out like that, personally I think it's nothing more than a cheap way to drum up business for the eventual DVD release and use the '4 unaired episodes' in it's marketing push to sell to those that want to see how it ends as I don't see them even airing the episodes this summer at all. We shall see.......

The Comfort of Death




Yup, ABC actually stuck to their word and aired the first of the last four episodes they promised viewers. But the show itself is cancelled. There is no 're-launching' the series in the hopes that it catches on. As for the episode itself.....

...it kind of took a few minutes before I could get back into it. I had to searched my brain to remember some of the smaller things that were set up earlier. After that, it was like putting on well-worn shoes and everything started to click again. As soon as Lou opened her mouth to Lex, I knew right away she was going to reveal that she had 'hit someone with her car'. What Lou doesn't know is that Lex was that 'someone' that left her crippled, which of course led her to Gavin, which of course led to her making a deal with the Devil which would allow her to walk. Nice twist.

The ending was interesting, but a bit confusing. So Jane 'free's' that girl trapped in the mirror, releasing her from the Drake once and for all and now is able to move onto the other side. But with the mirror tampered with, it releases something else.....Black Oil. And then Jane wakes up from her dream. So, she was dreaming freeing the girl....and oil, yet we cut to a shot of the black oil leading to the 117 year old man in bed, who now has rejuvenated to a Thirty-Something year old man. I really hope that ABC did a day or two of re-shoots to wrap this series up during its extended hiatus.
