That's why the movie failed at the box office.
Different theory as to why it didn't: people are dumb and if you throw sappy crap at them they eat it up.
I haven't berated anyone for watching anything. Watch whatever you want, I don't care. I'm just getting tired of the people who think they need to force me to watch a show that we know has been cancelled.
Yes. Any show, no matter how long it runs, that has some sort of "mystery" to it, that you have to figure out, ending before its time is a failure. Imagine if Dallas would have been cancelled before learning who shot JR.
Exactly! Same thing can be said about movies/shows based on The Hindenburg, any real life airline crash, any real life train wreck, etc.
Last Resort had so much potential. The story peaked at the pilot and slowly floundered each episode that followed.
I knew 666 wasn't going to make it after seeing the pilot at comic-con. It just wasn't interesting at all to me.
In some of those cases, I think it's fairer to say that the show isn't a failure, the network failed the show.
True, let's just say there was a failure somewhere that led to the show's demise.
The producer of Last Resort is promising a bang-up series finale. So if you're still watching, it sounds like they're going to try and wrap things up in a satisfactory way.
Thanks for updating us on this! I love this show and can't wait for a "bang-up" finale.
Awesome, good news!
I think you're missing the point. It's a "failure" because it was canceled, but once again, there are numerous examples of great series that were canceled which are great series and have lived on long after being pulled off the air. Again, I'm not saying this particular case is such a case, I'm talking hypothetically. I always start watching a new series if I find its premise interesting. If I like it, I'll continue watching. If not, I'll "cancel" it myself. But just because the network canceled it, that's not a reason for me not to watch it, if it's something that seems to be of interest to me (but, apparently, not the network).
No, you've missed the point. It's my choice and I've made it.
Your example requires you to start watching the show, I never started watching the show. You seem to always miss that point too.
If you were told starting a diet would result in no weight loss would you still start it because "hey, it could be fun and entertaining"?
Perhaps for you.
I typically delete unwatched recordings every year when I find out a show's been cancelled - and there's many since I usually let new shows pile up before watching them.
There's not a single show I regret deleting. Additionally, I don't watch reruns of anything so "living long after being pulled off the air" has no appeal for me, and with the possible exception of "It's Your Move", can't think of a single show that I've enjoyed that lasted only 1 season.
I do, however, regret watching several first seasons of shows that ended up being cancelled. If I would have known ahead of time that they were being cancelled, I would have deleted them too - which is the main reason I rarely watch new shows until I know they've been renewed.
I watch episodes, each one into itself. I don't care if they lead to anything or not.
You can't do that with shows like Lost, 24, Prison Break, and others. That only applies to shows like L&O, CSI, etc.
As for the other debate, I'm with Runner... it's a waste to even watch a show going nowhere.
Some shows you can do that with, but most these days (thanks to LOST) you can't.
Like it or not LOST changed TV. Everyone is now trying to be "the next LOST", even JJ Abrams himself.
I'm glad I stuck all the way through 13 episodes of Journeyman a few years ago, even after it was officially canceled. I was sad that it was over, but the finale was amazing.
I knew that was coming after the first episode despite the fact I semi-enjoyed it.
Political drama Boss is canceled.
