How could they cancel it? That's unfair!

    When I started to watch the series, I rented the movie to see how was it! It's just like the episode "if Johnny hasnt meet Bruce". So, my biggest curiosity began to be: how the show is going to end?

    So that bunch of heartless capitalists decided to just end the show, during one season to another! HOW CAN THEY DO THAT?? They did the same thing with The 4400, just in the most interesting fase of the show, I was so excited for the next season!

    A law should exist forbidding them to do things like that!! Every show must have an end!! Even if the audience is low, there are some people watching!! The same thing happende to Reunion, but it was worse, they didt finish even season 1!

    I think it's a lack of respect what they do to the TV viewers! How can I be addicted to a show if I dont know there will be an end?

    I agree, there should be some sort of clause or statement in a contract with a show and network/production company to finish off a show if it is going to be canceled. It's not fair to leave fans hanging.

    That's certainly an interesting view of a market-driven, free society. Ratings make the free world's TV go 'round, as they say. TDZ didn't get enough lately and, if we're being honest, the final season didn't really deserve good ratings.

    While I think many TDZ viewers worldwide would like some further closure to the series, I also might suggest approaching your discussion of such a tad differently. It might always be fun and it might sometimes be popular, but Socialist or anti-Capitalist commentary isn't always best placed on a television forum.

    It's going to be hard to get an ending anyway, even if they are captialists or socialists (lol)....
