    I just finished watching Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles (on DVD, BTW) and of course it ended on somewhat of a cliff-hanger and of course the show got canceled. :evil:

    I don't mind if a show is canceled with low ratings, but some of us need closure. Before the network tears the sets down, make like a 1-2 hour finale that officially ends the series. It doesn't even need to be shown on TV. Just put it on DVD! I bet the network would recoup the cost of the episode and it would make a lot of fans (of whatever show gets canceled) very happy. :thup:

    Cancel all shows that don't praise Obama and say nice things about the messiah.

    Great idea.

    However, I care about this plan just a little more than if someone suggested that we should to boil our piss away so as to not contaminate the groundwater with urine.

    I never watched that show. Hmmm. (Must put in my netflix queue...) Firefly at least had a movie. They ended the Pretender on a cliff hanger.

    I actually watched both seasons on dvd, it was a quirky show but i liked it, the final episode on the dvd hurriedly tied up all the loose ends.

    I thought the first season was OK, but the second season was a boring. I got very sick of the weak, complaining and clueless John Connor character!

    I feel your pain. I was addicted to Jericho! They left it with an enormous cliff hanger and then went off the air! Thank god for that NUTZ campaign and we got a short 2nd season closure. That is 1 show I wished made it!
