Another good series bites the dust. I almost can't believe it except it's Starz. It's almost pointless to watch any of Starz' original programming. None of them last more than 2 seasons. I don't understand what kind of numbers they are expecting. This season was really good and getting Cuba involved more was awesome.

Well, crap.  I really enjoy this show.

 

Spartacus lasted more than 2, it went 4.

OK, I can understand these networks canceling due to low viewership. But I REALLY wish that when they have these series with a continuing plot line that they give us a wrap up episode to resolve the story line. After Starz pulling Boss and now this I'm not sure I want to invest my time anymore in their original series.

I can't say I'm surprised because this season hasn't really been good, IMO.


If you stop responding to them or put them on ignore, then eventually they'll go away.

Although it seemed a little rushed, unlike with Boss, at least there was an attempt to close out most of the story lines.

Starz seems hell bent on becoming irrelevant these days.  Poor selection of movies imo, and series that just never seem to last.  :(

That was filmed several months ahead of cancellation but it did work out fairly well.

Glad to hear they tried. I'm four episodes behind.

You're right. I forgot about that one.
