Watching it with dad now.

Maybe it's the guns, the fact Gerald Mcraney starred in a CCW dvd, or Hawkin's badassedness.

What say we start an ARF'com firemisson sending more walnuts to FOX to get season 3?

Well at least "walking dead" will be out soon.

I agree. It was a really good series, with many themes that are attractive to Arfcommers.

CBS created it.

Oh, and fuck Fox. Never will forgive them for Firefly.

Give the Barakalypse a little more time. You might get more of a taste than you'd like.

I agree.
We had a station here that was airing it and then the station switched its host (lack of better words) and now all we have is old fucking movies that arent worth a shit and get replayed
every fucking month it seems.

I miss the show as well. It was the best damn TV series, I ever saw.
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 11:55:31 AM EDT
Yeah, that was a good show that CBS screwed the pooch on by taking a summer off mid season like established shows like 24 and Lost did. Poor choice.
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 11:58:07 AM EDT
It was entertaining and better than 99% of the other garbage on TV. I wish HBO or Showtime would make a SHTF themed series along the same lines.
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 11:58:47 AM EDT
Amen. I liked the series and thought it had some potential. Not sure where it would have gone after the 2nd season though.

Unfortunately, it cost too much money to produce and reality shows are cheaper. That and there's a good portion of our society that would rather watch a bunch of dumbasses argue, not anything of substance.

Having seen the alternate ending to season 2, I'm glad they cancelled it. It was just going to get moronic from there...
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 12:02:50 PM EDT
production cost wasn't the problem.

less than stellar nielsen numbers were.
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 12:03:55 PM EDT
they made season 2 knowing they were already canceled tho im sure they wouldnt have pushed the ending they did if they knew they were coming back
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 12:04:33 PM EDT
Thanks for reminding me....the sadness is now back

It was a great pilot, a fairly shitty series with themes that appealed to arfcommers. Face it we like the idea of Jericho better than the implementation.

IIRC, this was actually mentioned in an interview. Certainly if the ratings were there, it would be worth it.

On a related note, I'm still kindof pissed about them cancelling "My Name is Earl" as well. That Mexican chick was worth every episode.

A good show, but if any should return from the dead it would be Firefly.

this was an issue where cbs could not be bothered to look deeper and consider dvr'd, on demand numbers.

and to clarify,

jericho was renewed for two reasons:

1: the fan response to the cancellation,

2: more importantly, it was new content to be aired during the impending writer's strike that left other networks airing reruns.

I loved the show....but it did take a big hit when they killed off Mayor Johnston Green. He was an important part of the show.

Anyone ever pick up the comic book that was supposed to pick up the the story for season 3? I've never been able to find it in any local stores.

That show had some pretty hot chicks in it.
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 6:34:29 PM EDT
My understanding is that it wasn't ever expected to make it past the first couple of episodes because of the premise of the show, however I'm glad that was proven wrong. I felt it would've done better if the break in the middle of season 1 wasn't so long.

I've got the boxed set as well, and I couldn't tell you how many times I've watched both seasons back-to-back. A few flaws to be sure, but a great series that was very well written.


'Season 3' would have been interesting......since the series seemed to headed in the direction of a revolution.




Maybe CBS was affraid of the social / political ramifications & 'fallout'?

Well, the next step is to watch "Jeremiah". A post SHTF show.

TV tends to scrap the good shows that make people think and continue producing mindless crap.
Link Posted: 9/4/2010 7:03:41 PM EDT
My aluminum foil hat relayed some information to me that made me wonder if it was too close to reality,
teaching survival skills, scaring people into becoming preppers and loosening the hold that the
government has on all of us. Giving people dangerous ideas that they CAN take care of themselves.

I really liked it and I sent 5 lbs of nuts when they cancelled it. I watched Jeremiah for a while but it
was too soft-core.

I love that idea even better than the BOTD photos.

Think "Deadwood" with M4's.

agreed.

and the 2nd season was trash.

one thing i wish we did was make single season shows, like the anime from japan, an entire story told and wrapped up in 13-26 episodes. I get so tired of the never ending shows, or even worse the ones that reset every episode.

I never liked Earl.......His rough looks which is what old redneck stoners are supposed to look like did not match his clean cut pussy type voice,had they got the voice with the look right good show

Because they are not commissioned officers, they are enlisted personnel.

It was okay...not great, some episodes stood out but overall it was pretty uneven and in parts not believable..I did not care for how it ended.
Link Posted: 9/5/2010 5:24:06 PM EDT
I never even knew about the series during its first season. (I don't watch much TV.) I did see the first episode of the second season, and then went out and bought the first season on DVD. Probably watch the whole thing in two days.

Didn't catch much of the second season on TV either, so I went out and bought it on DVD also. The second season was somewhat of a letdown. If they could have just focused on the town and avoided the running around to WY and TX it would have been better.

What wouldn't have better numbers than American Idol when put in the same time slot? Considering the outcry, people WANTED to see this show very badly. There was talk of selling the show to someone like SciFi, don't know if that ever materialized or not.
