    Winters,...
    How about politely and simply responding to the request? Perhaps using real simple mono-syllabic words, as I am not well tuned into your style of prose.

    Last time...

    The point is the show has already ended and I haven't even started watching.

    Great! Terrific! I got that point a long time ago, but it's the question I asked of you that remains at large.

    I agree that procedural shows, like Missing, leave a bitter taste in my mouth when they are cancelled without closure. It is one thing to let the writers know about a series's demise so they can write in a closure for the storyline. It is another to stop on a cliffhanger or leave ALL loose ends dangling FOREVER.

    I also deleted Missing, Unforgettable, and Alcatraz from my DVR without watching the remaining shows. No reason getting invested with characters, interested in a story arc, or cheering for a character whose story is left hanging. This is kin to reading a chapter of a book only to have the rest of the book removed forever from your library. Why waste time reading that book when there are others that have a completed arc and storyline.

    I didn't determine it will be bad forever and will take another look at it based on feedback here.

    However the point was that a new show has to catch my interest quickly since I record more shows that I know I like than I have time to watch.

    I have several episode of more than one series that I enjoy waiting to be watched once the new episodes run out and re-runs which I do not watch start.

    One of which is Harry's Law (3 episodes) that I will watch since I like it. Yes I know it was cancelled, so what.

    With all the season Finales I should be able to get caught up before things start showing on the Cable channels that I watch such as Warehouse 13.

    Oh I get the whole too many shows to watch thing, but you have to give a show more than "a few minutes". Give it at least 2 episodes. I say 2 because we all know the Pilot is always the weakest episode.

    I do expect to have more free time starting in a couple of months. I may have more before that. I'm suggesting closing an hour earlier at work due to being slow now and the slow season is just around the corner.

    Strange that you say the Pilot is always the weakest....

    It is the one that sold the network on the show.

    It's also the one that is least like the rest of the series because even though they like the Pilot networks always like to make changes that generally start in the 2nd episode. Most of the time the changes make a big difference in the show.

    Also some actors change between the Pilot and 2nd episode as well. For instance this past year's "New Girl". Damon Wayans Jr. was in the Pilot but since his other show, "Happy Endings" was renewed he couldn't continue with "New Girl". They not only changed actors but the storyline changed a bit as well, for the better I think.
