    NOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!! The show could have been good if done right. I was really looking forward to it coming back. Theif and Heist were both good shows but canned.

    Well, when the lead actor says this after winning an Emmy for the show, I think you can pretty much assume it's gone, unfortunately:

    Braugher on the cancelled show: "I'm up in the air on why we're not on the air. But at a certain point when the audience doesn't show up, you have to make a business decision. My joy is bringing these characters to life; I would enjoy it more if the show was still on the air."

    If you'll notice, Andre Braugher was nominated in the Best Miniseries or Movie category, which means Thief was never meant to be more than a six episode miniseries.

    I thought he was excellent in Thief and am sad there will be no new episodes. The way it ended was pretty good, and although there could have been an opportunity to extend it beyond the origingal 6 episodes, the meat of the show was over. Considering how many TV shows get yanked off the air leaving you hanging I'm happy they wrote Thief as a self-contained six episode series and didn't leave us expecting more. Not to say we aren't *wanting* more!

    Thief was one of the best shows EVER to be cancelled before its time. Losing Carnivale was pretty gutting, Deadwood too(but I liked how it ended, some closure.

    I am really mad at this, but at least Thief got a season finale and ending... Heist which I also watched was cancelled right before the last episode so that you got nothing from those losers at NBC!!!
