NOT A GOOD NEWS DAY

OK, so I’ve just posted about my number one obsession ‘Joel Kinnaman’ having split from his long term girlfriend, albeit amicably.
It would appear to be a bad news day because I now find out that my number two obsession ‘Karl Urban’ has just had his TV show ‘Almost Human’ cancelled after just one series.

648

Fox TV have struck again.
They just don’t seem to know when they are onto a good thing!!
John Doe was cancelled on a season one cliffhanger in 2003.
I will NEVER forgive them for that one.

John Doe 2

There have been many more shows cancelled after just one season airing but probably the biggest mistake they ever made was with Firefly!!
Cancelled after just 15 episodes, three of them were actually unaired and only got seen when it was released to DVD.
Fans kicked up such a stink a one off movie was made to round up the whole story.
Serenity.
What an incredible movie it was.

They just don’t give things a chance.
After just 13 episodes (so not even a full 24 ep season) fans are just getting to know the characters.
The actors are just getting into the feel of their characters. The show is only just starting to find it’s feet and where it’s heading.
It needs at least a second series to finally decide if it’s working or not.

Come on Fox.
When will you learn.

OH MY POOR FEET

It’s been a long couple of days.
My feet are paying for it now though.
I’m so tired I don’t think I could even watch a Joel Kinnaman film or program without falling asleep….

OK, maybe I could!!

Anyway, I’ve just filled up on pancakes.
I’m onto my second humongous glass of wine and I’ve just watched the first season finale of Almost Human with Karl Urban.

What a great show.
We are now on a waiting game to see if it gets the chance of a second season.
Do I think it will get it?
Unfortuantely, no I don’t. This show was brought to you by Fox TV. The Channel with morons that regularly cancel shows like Firefly!
I’m not getting a very good vibe with this one either.
Could be fox’s new Firefly mistake of a decision.
We’ll see.

Anyway, I’m off tomorrow.
Apart from a quick trip tp Tesco, the day is mine.
I’m hoping that a film I’ve ordered shows up in the post but the ‘expected’ delivery time is not until Thurs or Fri.
I’ve just got to learn to have a little more patience.

Right, time to finish this wine with a good film.
