The fact that they cancelled Sarah Connor but kept Dollhouse says everything that needs to be said..
Journeyman was a victim of the writer's strike. It might have at least had a full season otherwise.
I am not sure, but it seems like anything that requires thinking has a short life.
What really amuses me are some of the "hot, new, first broadcast" shows they are bringing in. For example:
What is amusing is that they have all had their entire first seasons broadcast, and can be downloaded via bit torrents. Yet they are still being sold to the public as "new" and "first run" and suchlike.
Merline and Being Human are BBC productions. We have watched Being Human, and really look forward to season 2. It was a bit slow to get going, but it was excellent by the end of the first season.
The Listener is a Canadian production, which Fox has already broadcast the full first season of. We downloaded the first season, and watched it, and enjoyed it.
The networks cancel interesting shows, and broadcast older shows as "first run". I guess this tells you a lot about how the networks see the viewing public. Not very compliementary, eh?
I was going to put this rant into a seperate thread, with the title "Just how stupid do they think we are?". However, it seems to fit here better....
