ABC (ended 2006)
I don't know. I'm rather disgusted with TV right now. I don't feel like buying any of these blankety-blank shows. I'm tired of all my favorite shows (Earth2, Invasion, Surface, Kidnapped, Vanished, Daybreak, Justice) ending suddenly w/o proper wrapup.
I'm thinking about taking up book-reading instead.
I'n totally with you on that one. You know, it's not really so terrible when a show is cancelled. These things happen. Shows run their natural course. What ticks me off to no end is when a show is yanked around the schedule and is never given a proper send-off. I started watched Day Break for two reasons: One, because the premise fascinated me. Two, I was under the impression it was going to be a 13-episode series that actually had a conclusion, so viewers wouldn't be left wondering what in blazes happened.
(Earth 2, Under Suspicion, High Incident, Sleepwalkers.....and many more I won't bother to recite right now, had unceremonious 'endings'.)
I want this series on DVD so I can have the satisfaction of knowing that those 9 hours I invested in watching these characters (before it was yanked from the local station that was airing it) were not wasted.
'A' is my final answer. I don't even care about extras right now, although it would be nice to have a chat/commentary fromthe creator and writers of this one. Of course, they can't expect we'll pay anything over 35 bucks for a 13-episode series. And that just might be where the problem might come in. No profit in releasing it, they won't do it.
But I still hope.
By the way...reading books are way better. Because unless there's a printing error, you get an ending! And books don't tend to get yanked away from your hands when you're trying to read them.
I think TV's days are numbered what with growing viewer dissatisfaction and this writers' strike...
Looks like Amazon.com and Best Buy have it for $19.99 on pre-order. Seems to be the best price I could find.
It says it comes out March 11th on Best Buy, but Amazon says March 25th.
Bought it and I'm more than satisfied. I enjoyed this series more than any other I have bought. I think I saw an episode or two that I even missed online or in broadcast.
Hands down, best TV show in some time and insightful, entertaining commentary. Amazing show, I can't say anymore.
