They play with us for their sport.
I’ve become increasingly frustrated recently with tv shows and the company’s and executives that make them. I was reminded of the above quote by Lord Melchett from the Black Adder.
As I start watching a TV series, and I’m really getting into it, loads of them seem to get cancelled after 1 season.
The Chicago code (the best police/crime drama I’ve ever seen), Terra Nova, Alcatraz and just recently Continuum.
I’ve read comments on the internet, where some viewers will record an entire series, but wont even start to watch it until its confirmed for a 2nd season.
This just drives me mad. I know that times are hard, and early financial returns are important, but how about having a bit more faith.
