random rant

The new Fall season of television is upon us, but as much as I’m enjoying Forever & NCIS: New Orleans, as well as the return of old favorites like The Walking Dead, NCIS, Supernatural, etc., I am still thoroughly pissed about the cancellations of Dracula & Almost Human. :smile55

Two amazing shows, both with so much potential.  Not only have I missed them since their seasons wrapped up, but I’ve been waiting ever since for them to return—even knowing that wasn’t going to happen. :smile8

And now, with all the new shows coming on & old shows coming back, I find myself eagerly anticipating their returns, too.  Waiting…& waiting…& waiting…  Knowing it’s not going to happen, but still waiting… :smile46

The fact that there’s a new Dracula movie (Dracula Untold) coming out, without Jonathan Rhys Meyers in the lead, just adds salt to the wound. :smile17

This is definitely going in my Big Book of Betrayals.  Like Sheldon Cooper, I maintain a list of mortal enemies, & both NBC & Fox are now on it.  Of course, Fox has been on it since they cancelled Firefly.  Burn in Hell, you jackasses! :smiley60

Anybody else share my rage & disappointment?

If not, you may want to keep it to yourself.  Mistress Heidi won’t be happy & I don’t want you suffering her wrath. :smile5

    It’s a bitch when our fav shows are cancelled. But I have a new ones to enjoy.. I am really enjoying Madame Secretary and the return of Mom starts this week.. I love this show.. So I am a happy Girl.. Although I do miss Hart of Dixie.. loved this show.

      I don’t watch any of those! I’m happy Elementary is coming back & have been enjoying a few new shows, like Forever. But they just do not stack up to Dracula & Almost Human. It’s like the Fireflly debacle all over again…like we didn’t all learn a lesson in stupidity on that one! :smiley60

      Grrrr. :smile38

    I too hated when Almost Human was cancelled and now A&E in their ultimate STUPIDITY has cancelled Longmire I just..*sighhhhhhhhh* I don’t know what to tell you. They are idiots..plain and simple. I am frustrated with many show writer’s as well..DO NOT get me started! :smile18

    • Heidi says:

      Oh, A&E is *so* on my list right now. :smile55 Not only do they keep canceling really good shows (I love Longmire, too, & also really liked The Glades), but they keep adding all these disgustingly trashy reality shows. I do not care about rednecks with more money than brains or jerks who make their money by taking advantage of those who are less fortunate.

      Hey, A&E — those things are neither Art *nor* Entertainment. (Jackasses! :smile55 )

    I loved both of those shows and saw no reason what so ever for them to be cancelled. I don’t know what the hell they were thinking.


    • Heidi says:

      Amen! I heard that Dracula was “too expensive” to renew, but how much do you think Grimm or the new Constantine cost? I think that’s a bunch of bull-hockey. :smile38

      And how could anything with Karl Urban in it be cancelled? That one was totally cool!

  4. Dee says:

    I too was angered by the loss of Almost Human. The friendship between the male leads was wonderful and funny. I am religiously following the TV renewal scorecard on tvline.com and hoping that the on the fence favorites DO come back.

    Well I agree with mining rant in ways that I want to demand answers from the writers.I need my question answered not pooped way or said it opened to interpretation. :smile16 I want that tying all the knots. That’s why I m obsessed with How to get away with murder the pilot was so so until the end .

    • Barbie Pomales says:

      And Jane the Virgin I m serious when I say this the best adaption of telenovela I see so far ugly betty was horrible but Jane the twist and turns feel realm and howalious

    • Heidi says:

      Did you ever see the episode of Big Bang Theory where Sheldon discovers one of his fave shows isn’t coming back? It ended w/ cliffhangers & he calls the networks, then the producers, demanding answers to his questions. :smile23

      That is SO how I feel! Of course, I don’t just want the answers…I want to *see* them play out on new episodes! :smiley60

      • Barbie Pomales says:

        Never going to happen tv is based on how many people watched that night adjusting for DVRs as well and then they keep track over the seasons average it then say if they want to invest money to pay everyone including their assets the actors.

    I didn’t watch either of those shows, but I feel the pain when they cancel a tv show you love. I even get mad when tv shows end after years on air (I still haven’t gotten over the end of Friends). I mean, I spent years following those characters and now they’re just gone?? :smile17
    Thank goodness for reruns :smile53 :smile47

    • Heidi says:

      OMG, it’s all your fault! If only you’d watched, they’d still be here! :smile27 Kidding…it may have helped, but Firefly had an amazing following & they still killed that after one season. (Dumbasses. :smile55 )

      I have to admit, I didn’t love the way Friends ended—or Will & Grace, either—but that’s probably because I didn’t *want* them to end. Like you, I was way too attached. I just DVRed & watched every episode of Raising Hope in order now that they’re repeating on other channels, & I feel the same way. That show ended really well, imo, but I’m sitting here thinking, “That’s it? It’s really over? Noooooo!” :smile17

      With Dracula & Almost Human, there was SO MUCH MORE to look forward to. Dracula had one of the best season enders I’ve ever seen, & now we’re left just…hanging… :smile45 And Almost Human brought out little bits of background stuff I really wanted to know about. They were just getting to it, too. :smile30
