    I was wondering how I would feel if Revolution were canceled.

    I feel a bit upset, so I guess I liked the show. :nono2:

    I sure as heck hope they drew up some kind of resolution for the story line in a couple weeks. Not the resolution they wanted years from now, but something other than a pointless cliffhanger.

    Well, that now makes almost zero that I watch on NBC.
    Most of what I record is on CBS, then ABC and a couple of the "cable channels like 242, 245, 248".

    I think they will give all the firefly's a computer virus and all the lights will come back on.
    I am surprised it made it this long.

    Crisis and Believe were pretty much DOA in my eyes. The other I had never even heard of.

    I don't watch much on NBC either, except Grimm. Though I likely will try out Crossbones to see John Malkovich as Blackbeard.

    Being a sci-fi nut you would figure I would miss these, but I won't.

    Growing Up Fisher I will miss, as this mild comedy was pretty good.

    I will watch it as well
    But I am skeptical of its ability to do as well as Vikings or Black Sails.
    You just cannot do the things they do with a show on NBC.
    I know John will better than Hugh.

    So that's 2 shows (Crisis, Growing up Fisher) to delete all episodes for without watching a single episode... 1 show (Revolution) that I was watching for 2 years and I'm bummed that I invested my time and another that sounded like crap from the get-go (Believe) so I didn't even bother to record.

    Looks like we're about to see "Marvel vs DC"...

    I don't see confirmation of this anywhere. Won't be surprised though. Not surprised at all. I think they were trying to be canceled.

    I'm not sure how anything can do as well as Vikings and Black Sails. Both are amazing shows.

    Don't hold your breath on that. I'm already thinking I'll just whack the Series Link and not look back.

    Well, I gotten way behind so I put "Crisis" and "Believe" on my EHD thinking they might not make it. Based on ratings "Revolution" seemed dead last year. But we'll finish watching it. But "Growing Up Fisher" we enjoyed and are sorry to see it won't get a pickup.

    NBC would have a lot of dead air without Dick Wolf.

    I'll never understand that line of thought.

    If I never watched cancelled shows, I might never watch anything.

    So you enjoy wasting your time on a show you know has been cancelled and has no "ending"? Ok...

    That's like starting a relationship with a woman you know is leaving town forever next week. Total waste of time when you could be dating someone that isn't leaving town for good.

    LOL! I love that comparison!! :)

    I don't have 'relationships' with TV shows, I just watch them for enjoyment. So I never worry about which will get the axe or not and just enjoy the episodes I get to see.

    Kind of like dating lots of different women and having no real relationship with any of them! Enjoy it while you can, don't lose sleep over it when they go.

    I completely agree, I would never delete a show just because it has been cancelled. Most series each episode stands on its own so you can stop or start anywhere in the series and most serialized shows do get a wrap up when they are cancelled. Honestly the only recent serialized show I can think of where the ending was obviously rushed and felt contrived was Awake on NBC

    Hardly... Most actually don't. I give you "Homecoming" as the perfect example. Homecoming upset (to use a clean word) a lot of people when it was canceled with no ending in its first season. In fact Homecoming is the reason I do what I do. Nobody likes a murder mystery where you never find out who done it.

    There are many others that have ended abruptly as well.

    Aside from Raising Hope and Suburgatory, I don't see any great loss. I kinda liked Rake, but didn't have much hope for it lasting.
