You see the typical popular show avoids really solving problems, the characters are mostly cliche and you often find your self bursting things like - "Oh come on, even my dog would write a more plausible scene"
Profit was a show that was somewhat focused on a sociopath that doesn't break a sweat being constantly engaged in lies, cheating, murder and manipulation.
It was good to see such a character actually develop rather than being been given one or a few episodes to show how unimaginably devoted/ingenious/etc. the law enforcement is at nailing such individuals.
So probably when the TV guys saw how nicely all that dirt was driving the plot they got really scared that occasionally you might actually get a really bad impression on corporate life. And they can't have that, after all corps own own and make what you get on TV + most of what you use in your daily life. So you'd better keep your head busy with "I'm sure Timmy has the upper moral ground on that donut. Or does he?" rather than "Oh my god corporations may be just as rotten as they look, we should get rid of them"...
None the less the show is old. I'd much rather see such a show brought right into modern days. If done right it probably would be more powerful than Profit.
In any case: Profit is over - 9 episodes.
The show was well done, most of the people who have seen it have some positive memory worth keeping.
