Are you wary of new shows now?
 
Given Heroes has just been cancelled, Flashforward cancelled, Jericho got screwed over pretty fast, John Doe, Carnivale, I could go on and on. Basically, unless it's a show like LOST that goes 'this is the end point, give us x seasons' then why get into new shows when you know they're probably gonna be cancelled at some totally inconvenient point before all the plots are tied up? It just seems a bit futile.

I'm feeling a bit pissed off about how ratings dictate absolutely everything in a show. I like a lot of shows that have low ratings and they usually get cancelled. We should try to privatize television online and keep making shows to the producers' own standards of ratings. I thought that FlashForward was getting really interesting to the end, and overcame that big boring gap midseason.

To answer your question: yes. I'm finding it hard to get behind a show because I can't trust it'll be around. I usually watch television shows after they're nearly done. I waited until LOST announced they had an end in mind before I started watching.

It's an investment, and just like my money, I don't want my interests developing into a potential return and just have it go south and cut its losses.

Arrested Development ended really awkwardly due to its early mid season cancellation. I'm really glad Heroes was cancelled, season 1 was so amazing, but season 2 and onwards were absolutely terrible. Just.. so bad. That being said I don't need safety to watch and enjoy any particular series, its usually a fun ride.
