Re: Alphas cancelled by SyFy

YAY hip hip horray
the crap has been killed.

It wasn't that great but it also wasn't that bad. It was a good filler show. I guess Continuum or Defiance will replace it. Now if only Revolution will die. That show is terrible!

I'm hoping Revolution, if canceled gets to wrap up. It has a lot of flaws, but I kinda like it, because I tend to like the "Life after the end of civilization" type of stories.
Sadly, they don't seem to be popular with many people.

Jeremiah was a decent show.
Jericho was also decent.
Logan's Run [TV series] was good.
Planet of the Apes [TV series] was also ok.

Those are about the only 4 TV series I can think of that come close to Revolution.

I like end of the world type scenarios too, but the writing has to make sense. I watched four episodes of Revolution, really wanted to like it, but it was just so bad.

It reminded me of Terra Nova.

I kinda liked it too but I think the broadcast time was bad. It was on at the same time as monday night football and I think more people just chose to watch football (ie: me). I got 3? episodes in when I stopped and tbh I wouldn't want to just jump back into the series after missing a bunch of episodes.

The part I made bolder is why I hate watching TV. Fox is famous for killing news shows. They start them up in September, only to week them for the baseball play offs and world series. Then Fox is puzzled as to why a once "hot" show is now cold, then they cancel it. Last year, I recorded all the fringe episodes on my DVR and watched them after the season ended. It was great as there was no gaps in the story line. Same goes with the other networks.
Hence why I love Netflix. They grab a show, and you can watch the whole season, with no commercials I might add, with no interruptions.
Now if the networks would shut their pies holes and give Hulu love, I would subscribe to Hulu plus in a heart beat, even if it was 20 bucks a month [though it would have to be very limited amount of commercials compared to now].
I would love to be able to hop onto Hulu [maybe Amazon Prime carries all the network shows?] and watch the series I like to watch, non-stop for the entire season.
Sadly the networks fail to realize this, and shoot themselves in the foot.
I'm not a sports person, hence why I hate it when my show gets bumped for a sports event. CBS is another example of killing shows in favor of sports. Consider sunday nights. They air a football game and then run the shows after that, shifted from their normal time slots. Which means I have to pay attention to the DVR to ensure I catch the shows I want.
PIA, when it's so much easier to torrent them.
Sorry for the rant.

Lol I agree with you and I get frustrated with it too. I would've like to continue to watch Revolution but when the option of going out to a sports bar with friends is on the table also, after a few weeks of saying no, I go. Then a few weeks later I just said f-it, caught the tidbits of info on my espn fantasy app, and played xbox or went to bed early.

Network shows are only filler for the time between commercials.

As time passes, this is true.

The same holds true for the NFL ... We watch 2 minute commercials so we can watch one play before the next batch of commercials hits out television screens.
