Best show ever! I must have seen this series about six times by now. I would love to buy the dvd's if I can find them. It really is heartbreaking that Men in Trees got cancelled. I'm sure everybody feels like that when their favourite show gets canned, but this is a huge loss to all man kind!
I can not even find something else remotely as entertaining as Merin and the folkes in Elmo. I sooo hope this is just a bad dream and I can wake up one day with a new series of my all time favourite TV show.
I live in South Africa, watched Men In Trees for the first time, we are now finished season one, I have just looked it up to purchase the next episodes to find out it ends at 36. Disappointed doesn't even show how upset I am!!! I would like to know why?
This was the best show I have seen in years. I couldn't wait for Thursday nights and would even watch the re-run on Sunday afternoon. They have to put it back on. Everything that happened in the episodes pertains to everyday life, but with more spice and the people have become part of my life. The episodes kept me glued, I hated the advertisments. I am totally taken aback that season three has been canceled, how can you let the characters just freeze into nothing. There is so much rubbish, as in slaughter movies and series, why not take that off? Don't we have enough of that in the news world! Men In Trees is fresh, lively and entraps one! Thanking You from South Africa
I am very, disappointed. The One show, that me and alot of other people looked forward to watching after a long week at our jobs, You just had to take it off the air. Why is it, that the viewers never get a say so in a situation like this?
Deciding whether the TV show stays or go? I feel that there should be some type of poll that could be made up for the public to have the right to decide whether a TV series should be taken off the tube or not. And I am quite sure, that I would have many people that would agree with me on this matter.
What are the chances of bringing the show back on the air with possibly a 2 hour show? Mainly because just when a viewer really gets involved in the show, it's time for the show to end until next week.
you know this is/was my favorite all time show! I really don't understand Why ABC cancelled it. There are so many more shows that they could have canned in its place. I would lave to know what happen to our wonderful Alaskan friends.PLEASE BRING THEM BACK
you know this is / was my favorite all time show! I really don't understand Why ABC cancelled it. There are so many more shows that they could have canned in its place. I would lave to know what happen to our wonderful Alaskan friends.PLEASE BRING THEM BACK! men in trees was such a awsome show. It was great to see Anne Frist act so well in it. I loved the Alaskan setting made a great setting. And the story line was remarkable H E L L O How could you do take this from us really!?! Please bring back our men in trees
thats what the cancel...the great ones.bring it back.bring it back,bring it back,bring it back dummies........ it was the bst show on tv,no one knows what good tv is no more..they should ask people like me....I was so mad when they took it off.go figure.....I can count on 2 hands the tv shows I love...unlike 10 years ago,i needed 20 hands to count on.....this was a great show...I have no idea why they cancelled it....I was shocked shocked shocked shocked.brint it back bring it back bring it back what more can i say..they are stupid for cancelling it...they have no clue
This was a fantastic show, I followed it from day one along with my husband. I am so irritated that ABC keeps dropping all of the shows that I follow (Men in trees, October road, Cashmere Mafia) I invest all of this time into these series and then the loose ends never get tied up. It makes me not want to follow any of the series as they will pry get canceled and then I have wasted my time. I wish that Lifetime would have been able to pick this one up, I am very disappointed to see it go. I really liked her character among others on the show.
This show is the greatest. It was the one show I watched every week. No matter what night I had to chase it down on, considering they kept changing the nights, then the writers strike. It seemed like it was one thing after another. It was entertaining and funny, the characters were like real people you couldn't wait until next week to see what was going to happen. I don't understand why they took this show off air but put one on about (Pushing Daisies) a man touching a dead person and bring him back to life for a minute then touching him again and he is dead again. I mean for goodness sake! Men in trees you will be missed! I was so looking forward to seeing more of life in Elmo.
MIT one of the best shows on TV in a long time...I looked forward every week for it...would not go anywhere or answer my phone..
Wonderful story. never boring.. well written and acted, every episode stands on it own, yet the story continues keepping one's interest till the following week. so different from the sitcoms, shoot them ups, reality shows, etc. MIT just has class
now ABC is cancelling it...Please do not cancel this show...you have a winner on your hands..give it a steady weekly slot...promote it a little and the show will experience a big growth...ABC changed the days and times so much, hard for a show to survive ...everyone I referred MIT loved it but questioned the different air times ..
A nice, wonderful show will do well if you give it a chance...Thanks
I Love the show I have it to tape in my DVR just in case im not home and I miss it.
Their so many shows on TV about criminal, police, killing, some are reak and some are made up but none like this show Men in Trees was a unique show,I got to see and learn more about Alaska and how the people live their even if the show was not tape their but it made imaging how the other side lives, im very dissapointed that the show was cancel I hope you guys reconsider and bring it back in the fall.Im talking for a few of my frinds and neighbors too.
Here in a small area of Miami Florida.
I have waited a very long time for a show to come on that I am excited to watch and now one finally has "Men in Trees" only for them to cancel the show. I just got my boyfriend hooked and now after the last show I will have only One Tree hill to look forward to until they cancel it to! It seems like every time they come up with a good tv program it is quickly replaced with some stupid competition show, like we don't already have enough of those. Now come on, let us watch some good family base programs for once! Regardless to say, I will really miss Men in Trees and I sincerly hope they come to there sences and keep the show on!
There is no adequate reason Men In Trees is being cancelled ~ It is The ONLY thing on in the evening worthwhile watching without all the violence, etc. There is more to life than the reallity TV shows ~ ~ Some of us have "REALITY TV" lifestyles and would rather escape ~ taking MIT off the air removces our escapism ability.
How sad the world would rather see death & destruction than an actual happy show that allows you to escape the hurried days of regular da-to-day life. MIT is refreshing and should be on the air permanently ~ there is really alot to love about the show.
Sorry to hear it will not be returning for 08/09. Show I will miss. Why's it the good ones don't return. I just love them all, each so different make a great show. I will miss it extremely!Writers I guess are having writers block.PLEASE BRING IT BACK!
Best all time classic! I will miss it not returning. Please reconcider. One show I will not skip seeing! It's the best!
What can I say I am so sad, when I read it in the TV guide today. I just love Jack an Marin's relationship. One can lean so much from them. The comedy was the kind I liked, everyday life and you can relate to them, some of it was so out there that you just couldn't help but laugh. Please bring the show back. I know my writing will not make a difference. I can try! Thanks for listening!
The best show since Northern Exposure. While it brings back memories of that great show, it has its own new flavor. This show is fresh, relaxing, funny and by including both expected and unexpected predjudices/sterotypes and reactions it challenges thinking without slapping you. This is a multi-level entertaining show. You can simply enjoy it for the story line, get into the suspense or the guessing what will or will not happen and you can get into discussion over some of the over/undertones. It presents alternatives in relations, realistic dilemmas, while providing lightess, humor and community respite.
Northern exposure was deeper in layers, intellectually, but I am a great fan of this show.
Men in Trees is a warm, fuzzy television show that is located in Elmo, Alaska. The central character is played by the multi-talented actress Ann Heche, who is surrounded by a fantastic cast of supporting actors who make this show a delightful watch.
Men in Trees is quite possibly the best television program that has been on the air since St. Elsewhere. The writers have allowed the characters and their foibles to grow on us; there has never been an episode that I didn't enjoy. Men in Trees provokes laughter, tears, melancholy, and most of all, the desire to continue getting to know the wonderful residents of Elmo, Alaska. The actors who inhabit the delicious characters they play shine in their roles. I love each and every one of them, even the not-so-nice characters that pop up every now and then. Men in Trees deserves a warm, comfy home on the 2008 Fall line-up.
I was so excited to watch "Men in Trees" again, as it's been way too long. One of the main reasons I started watching,was because i use to live in Squamish, but now i am tangled in the lives of the charactors in the show, and love it.GREAT SHOW!
I quite enjoyed the show last week, it made me smile and think of some of my own dating adventures !! Particularly the young girl in her new apartment. I like the idea that they are trying to portray the old fashion way of dating, you know, that ritual that has been lost in time, something that they just call " hanging out " now !! lol The only thing that they can loose is the raccoon that chases her down the street...looks kinda fony to me..we all know it is a dog with a fake raccoon skin on !!! lol
I must say, my wife got me hooked on this show during the run of it's first season. The women are well done, and the guys are real guys...not those McFakey guys that women wish we were like. My name is Patrick, but I am a huge Buzz fan. He is just a great guy's guy. So is Dick and Jerome. Jack, even Cash - though he's a bit pretty to be rugged. They aren't talky, extra smooth, or emotional like men on those other shows my wife likes.
That's why this is one of the few shows (besides some of those reality programs) that my wife and I actually watch together. Kudos to the writers. There are no doubt some manly men on THAT staff.
I hate to sound shallow, but they should keep this show on the air if only for the men! This cast features some of the hottest and most talented men on TV. Even the extra they call Lonnie is hot! Yeah, sure it helps that the story lines are great, and the women who act on the show are also superb, but give me Jack, Stuart, Pastor Eric, and (dear God) Cash any day of the week!!! I'll even throw some love to little Patrick because he is the cutest, sweetest, funniest boy in Elmo. They don't all have to smolder, after all!!! I don't think my TV could take it anyway!
This is the best show out there! There is something for everyone! My husband (who reminds me of Jerome - looks and wit wise, anyway) also counts himself as a fan, though he won't let me or anyone else refer to him as a TreeHugger. But, when we get home from work on Friday's (soon to be Wednesday) nights...after the dinner is consumed, dishes washed, kids tucked in...we pop the popcorn, open a couple of beers and settle in with our favorite Elmoians! (Only you guys who watch will get that one!!)
Anyway, just wanted to jump on here and put in my two cents. The folks over on the Men in Trees message board suggested I share the love and that's what I'm doing!
Love to the cast, crew, and writers! Hope you get this strike stuff settled soon!!
This is not only the coolest show I've seen in a long time, it's also refreshing NOT to have to watch a show about surgeons who battle it out in a courtroom while they peruse crime scenes and investigate not only improbable but impossible murders with unrealistic pat suspects and horribly unrealistic scenarios. No, in Elmo you'll find nothing but humor, fun, intrigue, warmth, family, community, nature...you may even have a good cry! Anne Heche and James Tupper are a treat to behold every week. Their chemistry is undeniable. I just wish MORE people would get off the bandwagon of those other shows and get on board with "the little show that could." It's a great treat. Now the only trick is to get the NETWORK to get with it and get it back on the air. Anyone who is reading this, make sure you tune in Wednesdays at 10pm starting Feb. 27th and get hooked on Men in Trees just like I did!

Participate in our food tree planting ACTION to encourage ABC to renew Men In Trees for a 3rd year contract and encourage them to promote the show. It will involve a press release. Let's rock!
Pay $1 a tree (10 tree minimum). For those who can afford to - buy 30 trees or more!
Now, this is the really really good part:
Ten trees produce 2,500 lbs. of food each year for hungry souls in less-fortunate countries. We are aiming for 5,000 food trees (planted in honor of Men in Trees). That's more than 1 (get this) million pounds of food a year. Imagine fans of MIT supporting that much food in the world!
There is a $3.00 processing fee - less than one fattening Starbucks latte! So $13 dollars will produce 100,000 lbs. of food over 40 years.
Our tree action will also show the world and ABC how loyal MIT fans can be if they promote the show. It will show everybody involved in the production of MIT how much we appreciate them.
When we reach our goal, we will distribute a press release with the goal of bringing exposure to "the little show with a lot of heart."
People, people! Let's demonstrate that heart!

My favorite show on television is Men in Trees. Well, recently, I went to their website because I had noticed that my Tivo had stopped recording the show. No new ones, no repeats, zilch! Well it turns out that ABC has taken this great show off of the air (some are saying it's because of the strike, while others believe that it's just another move for this sophomore show and it's constant time slot changes) with new shows to resume on Feb. 27th at yet another new time slot, Wednesdays at 10pm.
I decided to go to their website at ABC.COM to get the scoop, and there was no scoop to be had. Just a bunch of confused fans chatting about the things they could do to make sure that the network, who they truly believe is trying to kill the sweetest show on TV, keeps their beloved show on the air. Some of the action they are taking is impressive. They have resolved to write letters, send rocks to the network (a plot line only a TreeHugger would love and get) and make some noise about saving Men in Trees.
So, I am doing my part. As suggested by a fellow Fanne and Treehugger, I am writing this blog to let everyone and anyone who is interested in reading this that there are millions of fans of this show and we will not sit idly by while ABC ruins it's chances of survival. If you are reading this and you are a fan of the show, check out http://abc.go.com/primetime/menintrees/index?pn=mb&cat=30893&tid=164211 and find out what you can do to SAVE THE TREES!!! If you haven't seen the show, go to that site and watch an episode, then take action (because I know one episode won't be enough!!)!!!
Every bit of of everyone's effort will be helpful! Let's so show the networks and the advertisers that we want a real show, and not yet another reality show ripoff that will bore US to death and save THEM money! We work hard! After a day at the office, another shift in the rat race, don't you deserve to come home and unwind with a real program you love? Of course you do. Trust, if you give it chance, I guarantee that you'll love Men in Trees!!!
Sex in the City meets Northern Exposure indeed! The characters are so much fun and so quirky. This cast, led by the aways marvelous Anne Heche, is just a joy to watch every week. Elmo is that fictional town that has a real place in each fan's heart. I never miss it. Or, should I say, I never miss it when I can find it on television.
The only problem that I have with the show is it's home network, ABC, who won't keep it in one place long enough for it to find it's legs. Now they aren't airing any reruns at all and I am waiting for the new shows to begin at the end of February. Until then I will be waiting patiently. Thank the lord for DVRs!!
This show is so under-rated! The characters are rich, the stories are compelling, the cast is fresh and the performances are always compelling! It's been through a lot of scheduling changes, but I stick with them! Why? Because every night is a good night to visit with the folks in Elmo! Now it seems that the fans are fighting to save the Men in Trees! Let's help get the word out about this GEM of a show!! Go to the show's message board at ABC.COM to find out what loyal Treehuggers are doing to make sure Men in Trees stays on the air!!
Are you a TreeHugger? If the answer is "ont yet" - do yourself a favor and watch this show. You'll be hooked in no time!
Men in Trees - a show for the adult who truly enjoys entertainment without the unneccessary trash that belongs on a late night cable station. It's easy to fall into the heart of this show and understand where the characters are coming from.
This is a rare find amidst such garbage that is on the television these days. Men in Trees offers a very well written story along with a superb cast! It's a shame it doesn't get the recognition it deserves. When I first started to watch the show, I didn't know most of the actors/actresses involved. But, as I continued to watch each week, (or whenever it was on) I fell in love with each and every character involved. This is the kind of show you want to watch with your feet up, warm drink in hand and lights turned down low. Cheers!
I absolutely love this show. Story content is always twisting and surprising, but I mainly love the characters and the setting. Who would of thought that Alaska would be a great setting for a show, but the scenery is absolutely breath taking even if you did not like the content! But I do love the content. Put it altogether and I cannot miss an episode. I did not think it would be a show that would interest me when I read what it was all about, but when I actually saw an episode I fell in love with it. And Jack isn't too hard to look at either! :0)
Men In Trees is one of the best shows to come along in years. It's my favorite show. So was Invasion and you did the same thing with it. While I was anxiously awaiting the next show, all of a sudden it was gone. Not even the courtesy of a forewarning.
I love this show and think it's terrible there is no consideration for the viewers. You waste two hours a week RE-AIRING Lost and Greys Anatomy (I love both shows but I don't need to see them twice) when you could be showing Men in Trees.....Why?!!! You put a stupid show like Notes From The Underbelly on and take off a Great shows like MIT and Invasion. October Road is also a great show but you didn't have to take off MIT!!!
Where is the logic? You Obviously don't care what the public wants! Why don't you ask us?!!!!!
Love, love this show. Never know what will happen to Marin next! The deep feelings of Marin and the wisdom she has is always a good story line. Why oh why did you take it off!!! Seems to me ABC you always take all my good shows off.
Marin, where are you???? Can't believe it was taken off!!! What is the reason behind this when so many loved you? Loved the interaction between Marin and Jack and the way Marin handled his relationship with "the other pregnant woman!" Always has wisdom advise for someone and something and can't imagine living in Alaska. Plow guy is one hell of a guy! Imagine being with someone so laid back and loving??? Jack is one sexy hunk! Needs to know the one who truly loves him. All characters are really great but Jack and Marin are the heroes...come back quick please.
Absolutely amazing show i just cant get enough and ever since it stopped i can't stop hoping and checking every thursday at 10:00 to see if maybe possibly its back. But no luck very upseting. Can someone please tell the producers to write a new fricking episode already seriously what are you waiting for anyways i hope they didnt cancel it because i will be very upset. I just love Marin her and Jack should be together. Lynn comes back after leaving jack for so long pregnant the lil hoochie and he takes her back like nothing its not right. He loves both women but Marin is better for him.
I love this show..so do my friends:))We are from Poland.. When next episod will be broadcast:((((????when when when:(((???sorry for grammar if it's bad:)we love this show couse every single person has something good inside and is creazy in his own way. Men in trees is funny, smart,light and touching:)
